Training and teaching karate is Sensei John's passion.  Consequently he has dedicated himself exclusively to this single endeavor since 1997 when he founded West Island Karate.
Sensei John Kalaidopoulos is an official Branch Representative of the World Karate Organization Shinkyokushinkai based in Tokyo, Japan.  The WKO is the largest organization of its kind, consisting of over 80,000 members in 81 countries throughout the world as of April 2012 and continues to grow.
As of 2016, Sensei John has been training for over 27 years and holds the rank of 4th Dan as certified by the WKO.  He has spent the last 24 of those 27 years passing on his vast knowledge to his students.  In addition, Sensei John constantly seeks to further his own skills and teaching methods by training with world-renowned karate practioners and instructors both nationally and abroad.  Most recently, he attended the 1st European Full Contact Karate Camp in Belgium as well as the WKO training camp at Mount Fuji in Japan following the 2015 World Championship (login into Facebook to see the photos).
In 2000, Sensei John was a member of the Canadian team and fought in Japan at the IKO (International Karate Organization) Matsushima World Championship.  Sensei John now trains and coaches students for the ShinKyokushinkai Canadian International Team.  One of those students, Sempai Kimm Carriere, has since competed in several international tournaments, including the Diamond Cup in Belgium and most notably, the 11th World Karate Championship Shinkyokushinkai in Japan in November of 2015.  In prior years, as part of the IKO Matsushima organization, Sensei John trained and coached two other students who competed in Japan at the IKO Matsushima World Championship in 2004 and 2008.
