Welcome to the Fredericton Karate Dojo. We are New Brunswick’s only Dojo (training studio) that is certified by The Dai Nippon Butokukai (DNBK) of Kyoto, Japan. We practice Okinawan Goju Ryu Karate.

      The founders of all the major martial arts were members, including Judo, Aikido, Kendo, Iaido, Ju Jutstsu as well as various different styles of Karate-do. The FKD is a registered non-profit organization dedicated in promoting and teaching Karate for health and as a Martial Art.
      Through systematic practice in the martial arts a person's physical fitness may be boosted (strength, stamina, flexibility, movement coordination, etc.) as the whole body is exercised and the entire muscular system is activated.

      Beyond contributing to physical fitness, martial arts’ training also has benefits for mental health, focus, contributing to self-esteem, self-control, emotional and spiritual well-being. The FKD teaches a pure traditional & classical Martial Arts: Meitoku-ha Goju Ryu Karate-do.

       We are also New Brunswick's only Dojo teaching authentic Okinawan Karate-do known as: Meitoku-ha Goju Ryu Karate-do. The focus of Okinawan Karate is on the time proven self-defense techniques hidden in the kata (forms) as opposed to training for sport karate competitions. We are members of Karate New Brunswick, our provinces division of the National Karate Association. The NKA is Canada’s governing body for sport karate of various styles.
       Our goal is to teach the traditional form of Goju Ryu Karate as it was taught to our Master instructor, Ken Tallack, Hachidan, Hanshi, by his teacher Dai Sensei Yagi Meitoku from Okinawa.
