Karate at  Killarney is a member of the Ohtsuka Amateur Karate Foundation (AKF). Formally Griesbach AKF, this non -profit club has operated in north Edmonton for over 15 years. The Karate program is designed for all ages and no previous martial arts experience is required.  Each class starts with an age specific workout followed by a technical component, providing  physical, mental, and leadership development in a safe, respectful and fun class environment. Our Black Belt instructors are volunteers with significant martial arts experience to share, who enjoy working with students of all ages.
All Senseis at Karate at Killarney have completed a Vulnerable Sector Police Information Check (Edmonton Police) with No Information to Disclose. 
This September, 2023, Karate at Killarney is excited to once again include an adult level class. Combined with the youth program, this class will offer the opportunity for family and community members to train together.
As our program delivery model is enhanced, the class times have been shifted slightly to best utilize the space booked.
Killarney Community Members –  please show your community card at the first class to receive your $10 fee discount.
