At Timberbank, we like to think of ourselves as “the little dojo with lots of heart.” By that we mean our approach to karate is to train the whole person, and not just the athlete in us. In our social relationships both inside and outside the dojo, we recognize the importance of being considerate, caring, and understanding. On the dojo floor, we are inspired and invigorated by the experience of “total” training, training that engages both the mind and the body. For us, karate is as much a means to an end as it is an end in itself.
Our club started a number of years ago as an after-school program for the residents of the Timberbank condominium community. Since then, it has established itself as a viable alternative to commercial schools. Classes are typically small, the training is challenging and technical in nature, the students (mostly kids) disciplined and motivated.
In case this short blurb gives you the wrong impression, it’s not all work and no play at our dojo. We also like spending time together, away from karate. Each year, we find excuses to organize social activities and outings. Our dojo get-togethers are veritable feasts.
