Some good news during this this time- see below!
Hanshi Higashi receives another, much deserved prestigious accolade
On December 13, 2020, during a closed ceremony, our sensei will be awarded the Certificate for Community Service, as well as the prestigious Medal of the National Assembly of Quebec for his decades of dedicated contributions to society. His medal will be the only one awarded in 2020, further highlighting the incredible stature of this recognition. The medal will be presented by Ms. Isabelle Charest, Delegate Minister of Education. Sensei Higashi was selected through a nomination from Mr. Richard Campeau, elected member of the Quebec National Assembly, with the support of sensei Germain Bisson. We are grateful to Mr. Campeau and sensei Bisson for their effort in making this possible. And of course, we are delighted and proud to be a part of sensei Higashi’s legacy. Central to this recognition is the fact that through his continuous teaching of Chito Ryu, sensei Higashi shapes tomorrow’s citizens into a life that is embedded in peace, perseverance, and hard work. His commitment has made, and continues to make, our society better, in Quebec, throughout Canada, and beyond. Thank you sensei. For all of us in the Canadian and World Chito Ryu Karate Do Associations, it is a privilege to be associated with you.
Andre Buret, renshi

2 months ago
As everyone has probably heard, the restrictions surrounding martial arts has been extended through until January 8th. No adult classes and we are waiting for viasport to return to phase 3 activities so training can resume as normal.
This is not the news we had been hoping for but for everyone’s safety we are hoping that the new year brings some relief and activities can resume.
Until then, take care of yourself, your families and have a different, but festive holiday season. ... See MoreSee Less

Update from Karate BC below:
Provincial Health Order Update - Tuesday, November 24th, 2020
Province Wide Restrictions Regarding Karate Training
Notice to all Karate BC Clubs:
Today we received yet another update from the Provincial Government regarding sport activities within this province after province wide restrictions were put into place last week. Details of this update can be found HERE. This update supersedes the information that was shared after the November 19th update and, as always, it is a result of the ever-changing landscape that we are dealing with during this pandemic.
The new updates to the Government Order caught many off guard, including our own government representative organization, viaSport. They are still in the process of looking for clarity on these revisions from the Government, but until further clarity is received, or until we are out of this province wide restriction phase (currently set for December 7th, but could change), Karate BC is strongly recommending to all of its clubs to, as of immediately, cease the delivery of ALL group training sessions. One-on-one training is still permitted.
We know that this is not the news that any of you would like to hear at this time, but we are hopeful that if everyone in the sport community does their part to change the direction of this pandemic, that you will be back in your dojo's training your students soon.
As always, if you have any questions about this or anything else related to karate, please do not hesitate to reach out to myself.
Please, stay strong, stay healthy, and stay safe!

We are sorry to inform our members that we will not be opening today as planned. As you can see from the excerpt from the Provincial Health Officer orders, guidelines are being established for martial arts classes but have yet to be communicated at this point. Due to this new order, we will be temporarily suspending classes until the guidelines are clearly given so we can continue to train safely and effectively. We thank you for your patience during this time. - from Sensei 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less
