COVID-19 Update:

We at the Calgary Chito Ryu Karate Club are committed to providing Calgarians with quality family-oriented traditional karate instruction.  To that end we have a plan to begin our 2020/21 training year on September 16th, offering kids and adult classes on the same days and time as we always have. 

There will however be some significant changes to how we deliver our classes.  Please visit our COVID-19 Info page to learn how we are committed to keeping our students and instructors safe and healthy while continuing to deliver quality instruction.

What is Chito Ryu Karate?

Chito-Ryu is one of the oldest styles of Karate in Canada. Its founder was a physician and optimized its training methods to provide safe physical conditioning while maintaining maximal effectiveness.  Like most other Karate styles there is an emphasis on character development by focusing on good manners, self-discipline, physical fitness as well as self-defense.  Check out Chito Ryu 101 to learn more.

Instruction at all Canadian Chito-Ryu Karate Association clubs is given by experienced Black Belt instructors registered with the National Karate Association in Canada.

Chito Ryu Karate can be practiced by all ages. No special athletic abilities or flexibility is required.
Calgary Chito Ryu Karate Club has been teaching Calgarians Karate for over 35 years.  We are family friendly with parents and kids able to train together.
