  • Do I need to have martial arts outfit before my first class ?
    Once you officially begin, you will need a Gi (ghee). Traditionally in Japanese culture it’s referred to as a ‘Do-gi’ or ‘keiko-gi’. You can call it a karate-gi. We can help you with sourcing the proper Gi and sizing.
  • What age can I begin learning ?
    We are able to start working with students at age 7.
  • How big are the class sizes ?
    Our dojo inside the Hyde Creek Recreation Centre is an intimate size where we can keep groups to smaller sizes, allowing us to be focussed on teaching you the fundamentals and technical skills of karate.
  • How long does it take to get a black belt?
    This will depend on the time you dedicate to master the skills necessary. It can be as short as 5 years or can be much longer to obtain a black belt. To gain a black-belt the student must show mastery of the skills. It is quality, not just time put in.
