"The aim of Karate lies not in victory or defeat,
but in the perfection of the characters of its participants"
- Master Gichin Funakoshi
Welcome to Lakeshore Shotokan Karate!
We are a karate club in the West Island of Montreal, with instructors that have been studying, practising, competing and teaching Karate for many years.
We teach an authentic, traditional style of Shotokan Karate in a friendly environment.
Benefits of Karate
Karate offers a unique way to achieve physical and mental improvement. Karate places emphasis on concepts of respect, discipline and self-confidence while at the same time teaching important self-defence techniques.
At Lakeshore Shotokan students can achieve all the great benefits listed above while having fun at the same time!
Lakeshore Shotokan is a not-for-profit, non-commercial organisation. Instructors volunteer their time because they are passionate about Shotokan and the benefits it brings to participants.
Shotokan uses three main building blocks of Karate: Kihon (foundations), Kata (forms) and Kumite (sparring).
Adult classes (moderate to intense level of physical activity) are at The Red Barn, Baie d'Urfe (see Location) on Saturdays 8:30am-10:30am.
