On Hold


On Hold

At Grand River Karate, we practice a traditional style of Okinawan called Shorin-Ryu Shidokan.

This is a comprehensive martial arts program based on natural body motion, and can be practiced

at any age.

Our Motto - Friendship. Cooperation. Learning.

Our dojo is directly under the highest ranked Okinawan Karate master in North and South America Seikichi Iha Hanshi 10th Dan, Head of the Beikoku Shidokan Karatedo Association.  

Covid-19 Update

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the dojo (gym) will be closed until further notice. This includes our Kid’s Classes. Dojo members will be contacted regularly by email, and non-members can check our website for updates. Our primary concern throughout this crisis is the health and well-being of our members.

Our dojo is directly under

Seikichi Iha Hanshi 10th Dan,
Head of the Beikoku Shidokan Karatedo Association

It is Iha Sensei's hope that with the help of their training in karatedo,
his students can learn to cope with any situation, be persistent,
face problems with courage, take care of themselves, realize their
optimum potential and feel good about themselves.

Seikichi Iha frequently tells his students that

"Friendship and cooperation are the most important part of karate."
