The “AKF Ormsby” club is a member of the Ohtsuka Amateur Karate Foundation.  Since its inception in 2009, it has grown to become a thriving family-oriented training club.  Our Karate program is designed for all ages with no previous martial arts experience required.  Each class features a rigorous physical workout tailored to each age group.  Our training involves traditional and innovative instruction methods that challenge a student’s development physically, mentally, and spiritually in a fun, exciting environment. Training in our classes is progressive to build continued growth in a student’s martial arts journey.  Our Black Belt instructors are all dedicated volunteers with a variety of martial arts knowledge and experience to share.
All Senseis at AKF Ormsby have completed a Vulnerable Sector Police Information Check (Edmonton Police) with No Information to Disclose.
