We became involved with Grand River Karate in September 2003 when our oldest son started in the kids class, on the recommendation of a work friend. When our second son was old enough, he wanted to join, too. Over the years, we have watched our boys mature and benefit from the teachings and examples set by the dedicated, passionate senseis and the fun, relaxed yet purposeful atmosphere of the dojo. In the last few years, we have made it a family affair with my husband and I joining as well. While there is no doubt that this is a physical activity, this style of karate is very suitable for young and old alike. It is a wonderful activity that we can enjoy as a family and our boys enjoy being our sempais (teachers) as they are higher ranks than us. L.M.

Being a student at Grand River Karate is truly a life experience for me. As a martial art, it requires formality, respect and focus. The Sensei are highly skilled and knowledgeable and are excellent teachers. Mentally, the club has given me something to be committed to, to focus on. I have new friends with a common goal that we are all working toward. D.Z.

The sensei's at Grand River Karate have done a WONDERFUL job at creating a supportive and educational environment. My daughters and I love going to Karate on Thursdays. We love it so much. L.H.

Our daughter learned some valuable lessons which stretched much beyond Karate. Particularly in the first couple of years, the training allowed her to grow in confidence. A quiet peaceful, beautiful confidence. So thank you for that. A.A.

I want to thank you for a fantastic experience for both my son and me. It is truly inspiring to experience such quality instruction along with a clear sense of caring and sense of humour from each sensei and from the volunteers as well.

My son and I are really enjoying class! This is the third dojo I've been a part of in the past 10 years and I think it's by far the best! R.H.
