Welcome to the Burnaby Shotokan Karate Home Page!

“True karate is this: that in
daily life one’s mind and

body be trained and
developed in a spirit of
humility, and that in
critical times, one be
devoted utterly to the
cause of justice.”
– Gichin Funakosh

“Originally this was the
most important thing
about martial arts – to
reach a higher level, to
become a strong human
being. Strong doesn’t
mean big arns. It means
who can be a more strict
human being with himself.
That is the ideal of martial
– Tsutomu Ohshima
