About Shorinjiryu Kentokukan Karatedo:

The Kentokukan School of Shorinjiryu Karatedo is the result of Chinese, Okinawan, Japanese and Canadian influences. A blend of Eastern and Western philosophies, the old and the new world into a school, which presents to its students the best of both worlds.

Shorinjiryu Kentokukan Karatedo offers both children and adult programs. Our children’s program (3-17 years) provides the opportunity for the growth of self-esteem, improved concentration, self-discipline, fitness, problem solving and competition.

The adult program offers a wide range of learning experiences such as fitness, skill acquisition, competition (optional), techniques for stress control, personal wellbeing and interpersonal skills.

Everyone has their own needs for fulfillment. We feel that Karatedo is the best medium by which we can help you make a difference in your life.

About Kazoku Kai Dojo:

After responding to the Yellow Belt Challenge in the summer of 2010, Shihan Giovanna Taddeo (6th dan) began teaching with a small group of mainly family and friends. As time went on, it became evident that this small but strong dojo needed a place of its own to be able to grow and open its doors to others, of all ages and abilities.

The official opening of Kazoku Kai dojo took place September 2011 at James Lyng High School. In 2016, Shihan Taddeo launched V-FIT P.R.O. Solutions, located in Montreal West, providing more opportunities for her students to expand on self-defence, fitness, nutrition and overall well being, in a fun and safe environment.

In September 2022, Sensei Ryans took over the teaching and training duties, becoming the official Sensei.
