• White Belt

    The focus of your training time in class will be to concentrate on basic technique, introduction to kata, dojo etiquette and physical fitness. Additionally, you will be exposed to basic karate terminology and phrases; a brief history of martial arts and more specifically, of Gojyu-Ryu karate. At this level we hope to challenge your personal limitations and develop a strong foundation for future learning.

  • Yellow & Orange Belt

    Training time in class will be spent continuing to develop basic karate skills. The concepts of proper breathing and the exploration of ki energy, through the study of the kata Sanchin begins to broaden at this level. Yellow belt is also the beginning of kubudo (weapons) training where the Bo (staff) is introduced. By orange belt, you should be prepared to additionally explore the Sai and Tonfa. Karate theory, history and philosophy will continue to be embraced at more in-depth levels.

  • Green to Black Belt

    Training time in class will concentrate on more advanced technique, kata and kubudo, as the student prepares to grade to Shodan, 1st degree black belt. A greater understanding of the ethics of karate will be undertaken and the role they play in our lives will be more closely examined. In-depth knowledge of martial arts history, history of Okinawa Gojyu-Ryu, history of our International Meibukan Gojyu-Ryu Karate-Do Association, and terminology is expected. The classes at this level are designed to challenge and test the student. First kyu and second kyu students are encouraged to take leadership and teaching roles within the dojo, either by participating in the children’s classes and/or assisting new adult students.

  • Meibukan Gojyu Karate Winnipeg Dojo offers a respectful learning environment for men and women of all ages.
