The "Karate at La Perle" Karate Club is a member of the Ohtsuka Amateur Karate Foundation. This club was first located at the Jewish Community Centre (since January 23, 1984), followed by the Crestwood Community League, which makes it the longest continuously-running AKF club. At the heart of our instruction is the "Introduction to Karate" Program, offered at all of the clubs and established as the standard for both classic and innovative martial art instruction. The program features outstanding workouts which are both exciting and beneficial in a sporting, recreational environment, and requiring no previous martial arts knowledge. The activity is unique in combining an absorbing art, an exciting recreational activity, and practical, down-to-earth self-defense. In addition to this, some grappling, take-downs, knife techniques, board breaking, as well as weapons techniques are taught by various Black Belt instructors. Training is available in higher black belt kata at certain times during or right after regular classes. Karate at La Perle is very unique as both individuals and families participate and train together.
