Natsuoka Karate develops students by teaching the practical techniques, tactical principles and philosophical concepts of karate. Located in the Dovercourt neighbourhood of Toronto, our program promotes self-defense; health and fitness; and personal development.
An unarmed form of self-defense created from the internationally influenced martial arts of Okinawa, Karate is a complete martial arts system that emphasizes strikes, kicks and blocks. Ultimately, the principles of karate can be employed as a way of life – the purpose of karate being the personal growth and development of each individual in order to reach their maximum potential. Through training in a safe but challenging environment, students develop discipline, focus, confidence, and awareness.
