Special class coming soon!!!
Shorin Ryu Karate Class: Monday January 11 from 12:30pm to 1:30pm and Friday January 15 from 7:00pm to 8:00pm.
Roger Dort was born and raised in Guysborough, but moved west after high school. In 2001 Roger moved to Victoria and began training Aikido and teaching martial arts based on his background in Tae Kwon Do and Jujitsu. In 2003, Roger found a Shorin Ryu karate school (Warrior Martial Arts) that was happy to teach him and showed him that karate could allow him to harmonize all the pieces of the martial arts puzzle, rather than viewing them all as separate styles. Within a few months Roger was hooked and he has been doing Shorin Ryu Karate ever since!
At the height of his teaching career, Roger was teaching 15 classes a week to students of all ages and backgrounds. In 2013 he started his own non-profit school (@victoriashorinkankarate on FB) and in addition to teaching regular classes to his small group of adults, he has taught self-defense seminars for women, a karate seminar for a group of judo black belts, and bunkai (hidden meaning) seminars for various martial artists. He has trained throughout Canada, the continental United States, Hawaii and Okinawa, Japan.
This is intended to be a fun, interactive class that will provide some cardio training as well as cover the basics of Shorin Ryu Karate. The karate style of the royal family of Okinawa and the connection between Kung Fu and modern martial arts.
Shorin Ryu Karate class: Monday January 11 from 12:30 to 13:30 and Friday January 15 from 19:00 to 20:00.
