Train In Harmony
Benefits of karate
There are kids beginner and advanced classes, as well as adult and family classes. Classes typically have multiple black belt instructors who can tailor the lessons directly to the grade level and ability level of the student.
There are many styles and forms of Karate. Shotokan Karate is the traditional and most authentic form of Karate, and the Harmony Center is the only member Karate club in Durham Region of the International Karate Association!
Our Sensei’s have gone through extensive training, as Karate for many has been a lifelong pursuit. As students progress in the belt system, they will slowly be given leadership roles in classes by teaching the lower belts!
Although most our practices are traditional, we like to train our students in cardio. Every class is a test of stamina and strength! Regardless of your capabilities, we make sure every student pushes themselves to the max!
Our classes focus on traditional Karate practices, with some sport karate in the mix. They start with a light warm-up, followed by some technique and Kata (patterns of techniques) drills, The advanced students practice kumite (sparring). Our students are taught to control their technique and do not strike other students.
