Bushido-Kai Canada Karate Academy is the largest Karate Manitoba member dojo in Winnipeg and has been ranked the number 1 dojo at the Manitoba Provincial Championships since 2013. Karate Manitoba is the official sport governing body for Karate in Manitoba and representing Manitoba in Karate Canada, the National sport governing body for Karate and the Canadian Olympic Committee (COC).

THE PREMIER WKF Karate training program in Manitoba, certified and recognized by Karate Manitoba and Karate Canada.

If you want to compete in Sport Karate, this is for you! For students interested in competitive Olympic Karate,  BKC is the largest WKF Karate training center in Manitoba. Led by Manitoba Provincial Karate team head coach, Sensei Angelo Mendoza, Bushido-Kai Canada has produced Manitoba’s only national medallists and had the honour of producing the province’s first member of the Canadian National Junior Team (Roene Nasr, 2016).  BKC’s Sport Karate training program encompasses the leading karate training systems incorporating bio-mechanics, sport science applications and data analysis integrated delivering cutting edge elite high performance training for sport karate competition. Sensei Mendoza has mentored under the top International coaches in the world, and most recently has just returned from training with the Russian National team coaches and athletes (Chelyabinsk, Russia, 2016) with leading WKF International Coach, Antonio Oliva Seba.

Our program follows the CS4L (Canadian Sports Centre for Life) Long Term Athlete Development  (LTAD) model, where athletes will learn the dynamic, active WKF competition training techniques required of WKF Sport karate training. Fitness with strategic and tactical sparring and conditioning is built into the latest research and most up-t0-date WKF training.  BKC athletes, as members of Karate Manitoba, have access to the official stream of provincial, national, and international Olympic karate competitions and seminars.

The BKC program has proudly produced elite athletes who have gone on to represent Manitoba at the Canadian National Championships resulting in Manitoba’s first National medal winners.  In 2015, BKC’s Roene Nasr brought home a bronze medal in Kata in the Canadian Youth Cup! Roene has gone on to win 3 international medals (Silver and Bronze) at the 2015 PSKF (Pan American Shito Ryu Karate Championships) in Miami.  With over 700 competitors, this BKC athlete medalled in both divisions of Kata and Kumite. This year, Roene brought home a Silver medal in Kumite at the 2016 Canadian National Karate Championships at the Richmond Olympic Oval producing Manitoba’s best ever national result and has gone on to earn a spot on  the Canadian Junior National Team, representing Canada at the  2016 PKF (Pan American Karate Federation) Continental Championships in Guayauil, Ecuador.

All BKC Tournament Team members have access to national and international competitions, sanctioned by Karate Canada, under WKF (World Karate Federation) and SKC (Shito Kai Canada) under the World ShitoRyu Karate Do Federation (WSKF).

Athletes in this program will train under the direction of Angelo Mendoza, 6th Dan, double bronze medallist in the Masters Division at the 2009 Canadian National Karate Championships, and the only Manitoba coach NCCP certified (National Coaching Certification Program)in the Competition Development level. Our program will work with an integrative team of assistant coaches and para professionals (fitness trainers, nutritionist, physio & massage therapists) with skill specific programming designed to develop the complete competitor. BKC has  proudly produced Manitoba’s best crop of competitive athletes to date, with more of our athlete’s aiming to secure a spot on  Canada’s National Junior and/or Senior Karate Team as the push for the Olympics 2020 swells at the provincial levels.

The opportunity to train with other young athletes and develop competitive skill sets for those that seek high performance sport karate, is one of the unique training opportunities students will uncover at Bushido-Kai Canada Karate Academy.
