Happy New Year! 2023 has arrived and it is going to be the best year yet! It will be so exciting to see what this year holds for our martial arts family.  


In-person and interactive online classes resume on Monday, January 09, 2023. It is important that you continue to sign up for your classes via  


In the event of inclement weather, a notification will be sent out via the Remind app.  


What are your goals for the year? What are you doing to achieve them. Martial arts is a fantastic journey with many things to experience along the way. Put your heart and soul into your training and the results you see will be amazing. There is so much to experience, so much to learn, and so much growth to be had. 


Take advantage of all the training tools the dojo offers; in-person classes, private lessons, interactive online classes, pre-recorded classes, training manuals, and higher belts or training partners to mentor and inspite. 


Private lessons may be booked through our booking website. If the time/day you want isn’t avaiable email Soke to figure out a time that works. Private lessons are great to help to focus your training and to work on individual needs. 


Daytime in-person women’s self-defence classes will be starting in January on Tuesdays. Time to be announced soon. Watch the booking site to sign up. 


Mark your calendars –   There will be no in-person classes at the Thornbury dojo February 01 & 08, 2023. They are having board meetings for two weeks and the centre is unavailable.  


Since there are no classes in Thornbury on February 01, 2023, we will all be meeting at Blue Mountain to have a ski/snowboard day. Details to follow in a separate email closer to the date. 


Our first tournament of the year will be February 25, 2023, in Burlington, ON. Let Soke know if you are competing. We will be having some extra training sessions during the month of February specifically for the tournament. 


Congratulations to Maogosha for winning the draw of completed December challenges.  


Join the Remind App if you haven't already, to keep you up to date on all dojo information.  Class codes are: Stayner @stayner, Thornbury @thornburyd, and Collingwood @cwooddojo. 


This is your year to shine! Train hard and you will see the results.
