Our Society was established in September of 2006 with the purpose of raising funds to send our youth to compete in Sport Karate International. In July 2010 we sent 38 competitors to the Trinidad World Championships to compete and brought 34 medals home for Canada. Along with supporting our athletes we do donations to 'Free the Children' Projects and in 2012 our members did a Voluntour Trip to Guatemala with' Project Somos', helping to build homes for orphans.

Annual Society Memberships (due September):

Individual: $1 year

Family: $2 year

In 2011 our Society donated $400 to Ecuador Education for Free the Children projects 


In 2013 our Society donated $500 to Project Somos Children's Village




Next meeting will be held in December 6th 2014


Thirteen of our members and their families traveled to Guatemala in August to help build a Children's Village with Project Somos. The village will be comprised of seven homes with 7 mothers and 49 children in need. The vision of Somos is to build a village that is ecologically and environmentally sustainable. Our group worked hard and had an amazing time. See picture highlights. Inquire with Sensei for a next trip date TBA.


Local kids came out to learn Don Jitsu!


 $2117.80 from our trip went directly to Project Somos!
