  • Shito-Ryu Itosu-Kai Karate
    Shito-Ryu Itosu-Kai Karate And Kobudo Association Canada™ For those of you who are new to Shito-ryu Itosu-kai Karate welcome. From this day forward you are part of an ancient and honorable martial art form. Karate, freely translated means "empty hand" or the ability of the practitioner to defend themselves without the use of weapons. However, only the student with an open heart and mind can master empty hand techniques. Karate classes begin with "mokuso", a meditative moment before instruction starts. It is at this time the student should clear their mind of every day worries leaving it ready to receive instruction. The practice of "Shito-ryu Itosu-kai Karate" is an invitation to a lifetime of friendship, physical fitness and spiritual strength. As a beginner, you may find the discipline difficult and wearing but remain persistence and dedicated. The practice of martial arts requires training of spirit, mind and body. Therefore you will be working three times as hard as you would in other sports. Remember that all of your instructors felt awkward and, at times, overwhelmed in the beginning.

    The origin of Wing Chun Kung Fu can be found in the turbulent, repressive Ching dynasty of over 250 years ago. It was a time when 90% of the Chinese race, the Hons, were ruled by the 10% minority, the Manchus. The Manchus placed a great amount of unjust law on the Hons. For instance, all the female Hon infants were made to bind their feet so that when they grew up they would be dependent upon their parents or husband. The work opportunity of the Hons was also restricted. They were unable to hold office in Government higher than a certain level. Heavy tax burdens were placed on the country so that the Manchus could have economic control of the Hon people. Kung Fu training was also banned for the Hons, however the Manchu Government was adopting the Hon culture. They respected the Shil Lim Temple as a Buddhist sanctuary.
