ShotoCanada is dedicated to teaching traditional Shotokan Karate in a modern world. We practice a do, which means we study the philosophical and spiritual aspects of Shotokan as well as physical training and practical applications.

Our membership comes from a wide variety of Shotokan backgrounds representing the teachings of many masters. We believe this pooling of knowledge has given us a very strong, dynamic and adaptable approach to the art and science that is Shotokan.

To find a club near you, please check the Clubs listing. You can find out what is happening in ShotoCanada by going to the Events and News pages.
