Martial Arts, we pride ourselves on our commitment to high standards in all our classes.
Our lead karate instructors, Kyoshi Scott Shier (7th Dan) and Renshi Brian Larter (6th Dan), combine for
over 50 years of martial arts experience and bring an exceptional level of skill and insight to their teaching.
The martial arts are an ancient practice, sometimes clouded in our modern world by tendencies towards competition
and dominance. At Community Martial Arts, we focus on fitness and self-discipline, while maintaining an atmosphere
of friendliness and fun. Our underlying principles are, and always will be, honour, integrity, and humility.
We provide Shotokan karate classes for kids and adults at both our dojos – Uxbridge and Mount Albert. Students can
train in this discipline up to four times a week. Our kids’ classes generally start with a game, followed by a warm-up,
karate basics and a selection of karate kata, sanbon kumite and self defense. In our adult program, we add bunkai and
ippon kumite to round out the training. At Community Martial Arts, we believe in building our students’ confidence through a focus on the fundamental stances,
blocks, punches and kicks, giving both the newcomer and the experienced martial artist a well-rounded karate program.
Our clean, bright, air-conditioned facilities provide a positive training atmosphere, and we offer reasonable payment
rates while not locking our students into contracts. We hold aerobic kick boxing classes twice a week at our Uxbridge location. In these classes, we use music and humour
to motivate our students to enjoy physical activity while also learning self-defense techniques. Our kick boxing classes
follow a pay-as-you-go model. Call us or drop by sometime to inquire about our classes as well as about our philosophy.
