The Scarborough Shorin-Kan Karate Dojo is located in Scarborough Ontario, which is about 20 minutes from downtown Toronto. Three times a week a small group of dedicated students gather to train in traditional Matsubayashi-Ryu. A typical 2-1/2 hour class begins with about 20 minutes of meditation followed by warm-ups and basics. Kata practice forms the core of the training, with constant repetition and Bunkai (Kata analysis). Small classes allow for personalised instruction, which ensures high quality and a close spiritual relationship between teacher and students. Every effort is made to adhere to the teachings and philosophy of Grandmaster Shoshin Nagamine, the founder of this unique style of Karate-Do. Anyone interested in joining the Dojo should call to set up an appointment.
