The Meibukan Gojyu Karate Winnipeg Dojo (school) teaches a traditional style of Okinawa Karate. We have been proud members of Winnipeg’s martial arts community since 1993 and in our current location since 1999. We are proud to be a member of the prestigious International Meibukan Gojyu Karate Association (IMGKA)
At our dojo, we practice karate as a way of life. Our dojo emphasizes the importance of personal development and the self defence aspects of karate in a non competitive, non sport environment, as opposed to the competitive styles which have proliferated in North America. The specific style of Gojyu translates as ‘go’ meaning hard and ‘jyu’ meaning soft. Gojyu karate utilizes both closed handed, open handed, linear, and circular techniques as well as joint locks and take downs. Additionally there is a focus on proper breathing methods to cleanse, strengthen, and tap into our internal health.
Benefits of training at our dojo include strengthening, toning and flexibility of the body, mental discipline, confidence building, character development and belonging to a strong like minded community.
You and your family are very important to us. At the Meibukan Gojyu Karate Winnipeg Dojo you will always receive personal attention and the highest quality of instruction.
