Check out one of our martial arts programs. If you want more specific details about each type of martial arts please contact Pam at 519-623-9622 ext 255 or send her an email.  All martial arts classes are free with a membership however there are some optional costs within each program that should be considered.  These costs will be explained in greater detail on the first day.  Optional uniforms may be purchased through the instructors. Due to the high demand, we request that members only register for one martial arts program per session. We assume that once a member has missed 3 lessons in one session they have withdrawn from the program.
