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)
