Due to COVID-19 and unforseen circumstances we are closing the Lindsay dojo on Mary Street.

Fall classes will resume once a location has been secured and approved through the TLDSB.



to Karate Kawartha Lakes


We are a family oriented traditional karate organization focusing on Sensei Masaru Shintani's teachings and values of kindness and humility.

Karate Kawartha Lakes teaches traditional Japanese Karate. We are part of the Shintani Wado Kai Karate Federation, which is the largest martial arts federation, of a single style, in Canada spanning from coast to coast.

Unlike many modernized karate clubs, our training focuses about 80% on the practical "art" of karate and about 20% on karate as a sport. Our training regiment is designed to develop student's awareness, concentration and focus, balance, control, respect, discipline, humility and self confidence and provide effective self defense.
