October 19 (Tues) and October 20 (Wed) at this dojo! - Master Shiina from JKA Headquarters, 7th Dan JKA and multi-time former All-Japan and World Kata and Kumite Champion, will be visiting us.

We had the great honour of hosting Shiina Sensei, 7th Dan JKA Headquarters Instructor at our dojo. What an amazing instructor! Shiina Sensei demonstrated incredible flexibility and even more incredible budo(Martial Arts Spirit)during his seminars. We also had the great honour of him coach members of our National Team going to Thailand in 2011, and boy did he work us hard! He stated "I am the coach of Team Japan next year, and I will coach you just as I coach them. I hope we can be number 1 and number 2 next year!" He was incredibly motivating in such a short time and we can't wait to see him again. Thank you very much once again to Saeki Sensei, Dick Powell, and Roy Chin-Fee for organizing this visit for us.

May 30th - Ontario JKA Provincial Tournament at St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Brampton, On. Click here for the results!

Once again the CJKF Provincial Tournament was a tremendous success! Over 200 competitors competed, over 30 more than last year. It is great to see that the number of tournament competitors, as well as the CJKF organization in general is growing more and more every year. Our dojo performed extremely well this year garnering a total of 37 medals! Congratulations Team!

A very special "Thank You" goes out to Sensei Ed Leung and his wife Sempai Marie Leung for their incredible contribution in organizing this tournament year after year. As the numbers get bigger, so does the workload and we could not do it without them. Amazing Karate Spirit!!! Oss!!!

Also, a special "Thank You" goes out to all the volunteers that helped out. We really appreciate all your efforts, especially with the unfortunate delay we had in the morning when the custodian did not show up to open the doors. Even with the delay we managed to stay organized and finished on time.

This quote is from Sensei Eddie: "I can't thank Troy and Kevin from the Mississauga dojo enough for saving us from a total disaster, and I want to thank you all for pulling together and making this a successful event. Please extend my thanks to all of the volunteers from your dojos"

On Saturday April 24th, The JKA of Mississauga (World Class Karate) had the honour of hosting seminars conducted by Master Imura, 7th Dan JKA (Japan Headquarters) , and assisted by Master Saeki, 7th Dan JKA (CJKF Chief Instructor). Expected to attend this event was approximately 50 people, but instead the end total of participants was 70 people! What an amazing turnout! The large crowd, although a little crammed, were not at all disappointed. Master Imura displayed amazing agility, flexibility and technical prowess. It was another amazing display of karate spirit!

Thank you to Saeki Sensei, and Roy Chin-Fee (CJKF Chair) for organizing this for us. We also got final confirmation that another great JKA Headquarters Instructor, Master Shiina, 7th Dan JKA and multi-time former All-Japan and World Kata and Kumite Champion, will be visiting us in October of this year. The exact week is still to be finalized.
