Our organization was founded for preserving the style of Shorinryu Matsumura Seito Okinawan Karatedo Kobudo in Canada. We are following the line of late Hohan Soken, Nishihira Kosei and Ricky Rose.
We established as a group in Toronto in September 2007. The first public group was opened in September 2008. Initially we started our activity in collaboration with Russian Canadian Cultural and Educational Centre. Our training took place in Antibes Community Centre.
From December 2010 we started to collaborate with Welcome House, Settlement Services for New Canadians and our training took place at Northview Heights SS and Herbert H. Carnegie Centennial Centre (Arena).
From September 2015 we started to collaborate with different community group York Centre Karate and our training took place at Herbert H. Carnegie Centennial Centre (Arena).
From September 2016 we have our own headquarter (HokKouKan Dojo – The Northern Light House Training Place) at 157 St Regis Crescent South, unit 201 (second floor), Toronto, On, M3J 1Y6 (see details below). Despite of that we still continue collaboration with York Centre Karate on various programs at Herbert H. Carnegie Centennial Centre (Arena).
Our students are also members of Ontario Karate Federation. That is only Provincial Sport Organization accredited by government of Ontario to represent officially sport of Karate. Because of that our students get a chance and big possibility to participate in Ontario Provincials championships and win medals like: gold, silver and bronze in different categories.
Our students achieved different kind of grades. On academic year of 2014-2015 one of our students (from the first public group) became a Black Belt. Also this year (2017) one other our student was tested and promoted to Black Belt.
We are waiting for any interested person at our own location Canadian Headquarter – Karate Family Centre (HokKouKan Dojo – The Northern Light House Training Place) at
