The Government of Ontario press release can be found here:


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

This is a comprehensive martial arts program based on natural and healthy body motion. As a dojo we pride ourselves on being open and accepting of different cultures and diversities.


Our Motto - Friendship. Cooperation. Learning. 

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."
