The 2018 Annual General Meeting was held on June 22, 2018 at Vancouver Marpole Dojo. Thank you for all parents, friends and members. Your effort has made this event success.
Dear fellow karatedo-ka, parents and friends,
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome your return to the 2017-2018 year of Shoseikan Canada – Goju Ryu Karate.
There are many reasons to train in Karate (or any form of martial art). Of course, self-defense would be one of the big ones. However, being a Karatedo-ka, we should focus on the principles, training procedures, friendship and being respectful.
Karatedo is a lifelong journey in perfecting your personal character and creating harmony. The true Karate spirit is being strong to face any difficulty and hard times that come at you.
Karate’s training may be difficult. However, when you overcome it, you will enjoy it. Let's work hard together and have another successful year.
Chief Instructor of Shoseikan Canada (Western division)
The Annual General Meeting of Shoseikan Canada brings together our fellow karatedo-ka, parents and friends. In this event, we don’t only enjoy the performance and foods, but also we could see the report cards of our students thought the result of the award presentation.
This is the 11th year and we are glad that we had another year of peace and success. We hope you to continue your Karate journey with us and will see you around in the next year.
It has been a while since the last promotion test. All students were excited and worked very hard to prepare for the test. Let's see how they do....
On Friday, May 19, 2017, we had the promotion test for Kid Class at our Vancouver Marpole Dojo. Congratulation to all of you, and here is the result:
Gavin Kok: promoted to K8
Issa Kok: promoted to K8
Hilary Chan: promoted to K4
Kylie Martin: promoted to K4
Hayden Harper: promoted to K4
Team Shoseikan Canada has created mannequin challenge video on last Friday class at Vancouver Dojo. Please visit the following link and watch it. We actually took 2 videos and the version 2 will be available in a later time!
Hope all of you would have a wonderful Christmas of 2016! Merry Christmas!

To all fellow Karate-ka, family and friends,
I am excited and honored to welcome each and every one of you to the beginning of a new Karate year with Shoseikan Karatedo (Western Canada Division).
This Karate year-term will be a year of setting and reaching attainable goals, working harder and smarter and taking our club and member achievement to the next level of greatness.
This year, you are looking forward to encountering a highly intensive and challenging program that will push you to work beyond your limits. However, I am confident that all of you have the capacity and ability to meet our expectations. Our goal is to ensure that all members are enjoying the training and the time with Shoseikan Karate.
On behalf of the Instructor Team, I want to again welcome all of you and thank you for being a part of Shoseikan Karate. We are truly on the path to greatness and Karate-do.
Shihan, Henry W Chan
The temperature's rising, school's out of session and our Karate year comes to the end. It is time to have some outdoor fun.
On August 14, 2016, Shoseikan Karate has an outdoor training and BBQ event at Locarno Beach Park.
Instead having training at Dojo, some of our new members has experienced the training on the sand under the sun. It makes the warm Summer day more fun with games and BBQ. Parents, friends and members all had a great time. Also, fare-welling to our great senior member, Jeffrey Yu, who's moving to Toronto for University. We are going to miss him for a few years. We wish that he's having a great time in the east side but never forget Karate. Please come back to our force in the future.
It is our pleasure to celebrate our 10th years Annual General Meeting on June 24, 2016 at Vancouver Marpole Dojo.
Ten years for sure is a milestone and we would like to take this chance, to thanks all the parents, instructors and students. Thank you for supporting us, your efforts and contribution builds today's Canada Shoseikan.
Special thanks to our honor guest, Shihan Alan Chan. Also, thanks to all the helpers and to our MC, Tiffany Mo. Your hardwork makes the success of this event.
