Our Philosophy

We are an organization of karate schools dedicated to helping people improve their lives through traditional Goju Karate training. Our curriculum was developed by Kyoshi J Purdy, one of Canada's longest training Goju practitioners.  With dedication and time, students can experience lasting positive impact.

Our History

Some of our students have been training for so long they've become instructors!  Our unique curriculum is based on Hanshi J Purdy's 50+ years of experience.  Learn traditional karate skills from dedicated professionals.
