A quote from our Sensei, Bert Freeman:
"The Toronto Academy of Karate today...
So who are we now?
I know who we are not ... we are not a "club"!
-We are not a kick boxing club!
-We are not a mixed martial arts club encouraging violence!
-We are not a McDojo offering a babysitting service!
We are an academy of higher learning, with many dedicated senior Black Belts teaching authentic karatedo!
And we are a family.... a family built on respect!
2020 is the dawn of a new era!
I believe that the Toronto Academy of Karate is the highest quality karate dojo in the country."
- Sensei Bert Freeman
