Congratulations to all the students who passed their grading. Well done...Osu! Please see Sensei as soon as possible to pay the GRADING FEE if you were promoted to a new belt color (does not apply to a new bar). Thank you.
Beginning Tuesday, June 10th, there will only be one class at the Beaconsfield dojo at 6 pm for all kids / all levels for the entire summer (until further notice). There is no change in schedule at the Ile-Perrot dojo.
Please see Sensei as soon as possible to pay your membership renewal (the due date was Monday, June 2nd). Thank you.
West Island Karate ® and Karaté de L'Île are martial arts schools located in Beaconsfield and Île-Perrot, respectively, on the west island of Montreal, Quebec, Canada (also serving Pincourt, Kirkland, Pierrefonds, Pointe-Claire and Dollard-des-Ormeaux). The dojo (school) was founded by Sensei John Kalaidopoulos (4th Dan) in 1997. West Island Karate / Karaté de L'Île hosts the Canadian Junior Kyokushin Championships, our annual tournament for juniors which is the premier event of its kind in Canada. We teach Kyokushin Karate the traditional way in a friendly, family-oriented environment with an emphasis on technique, physical fitness, and the building of the mind and spirit. While always having fun and being challenged, our students learn much more than a respected martial art and self-defense. They also learn invaluable lessons which can be applied to every aspect of their lives, now and in the future. This is the Kyokushin way.
The West Island Karate / Karaté de L'Île website serves several purposes:
To convey what West Island Karate and Karaté de L'Île are all about and to show that we are not just any typical karate dojo...our spirit, knowledge and sense of community set us apart.
