Welcome to Sabean Karate Academy!  Sabean Karate Academy is dedicated to the education and training of karatekas from age four and up.  Our club practices the Chito-Ryu style of karate, one of the oldest styles of karate in Canada. Chito-Ryu karate offers participants excellent physical conditioning and strong mental discipline, as well as a proven method of self-defense. This karate style can be practiced by all ages. No special athletic abilities or flexibility is required. Chito-Ryu traditional karate focuses on good manners, self-discipline, physical fitness and self-defense.  In addition, our club follows the Karate for Life: Long Term Athletic Development(LTAD) program advocated by Karate Canada.  The LTAD plan focuses on enjoying life-long participation in karate and other physical activity. Training, competing, and recovery programs are based on an athlete’s developmental age rather than chronological age and are designed to optimize development during critical periods of maturation and trainability.


From September to June, classes are offered on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday nights.  Classes are split according to experience/belt color (Kyu) and age.  Classes begin Tuesday, September 3 at 6:00 pm with a white/yellow belt class.  See the Club Information tab for complete class times and club location.

Registration for the 2013-14 training year is ongoing. New particpants are encourged to contact us for further information at 403-827-1871 and/or attend a class to discover firsthand the challenge and fun of learning karate. See the Forms section under the Support tab for printable application and waiver forms.

For the month of September, we will be focusing on getting into the training mindset, fitness and basics.


“The ultimate aim of karate lies not in victory or defeat, but in the perfection of the character of its participants.”  Gichin Funakoshi (1869-1957)
