AMAZING Master with SOLID knowledge and passion in the arts. Very rare to find a school where the Master / Owner is physically able and engaged in classes.

Sensei Ferraro and Black Belt team are just dedicated, focused on teaching great / fantastic pure Okinawan Karate. They also focus on the art of sparring using Karate techniques we learn in our Katas! And they are dedicated not only to this fascinating world of Karate but Senseis also make sure we get mental integrity to avoid mental break down, self steam, as well as physical fitness to avoid body break down. I, as an adult, and my 9 year old daughter are just very happy to be part of Sensei Ferraro Dojo and Karate lineage. We feel the difference in our lives pre Ferraro Karate and post Ferraro Karate. Thanks Sensei and Black Belt Team of Ferraro Karate!!!

We just moved to Guelph and my son tried out the 3-5 year old class last week. We are instantly sold on everything this place has to offer. A perfect mix of fun and skills. Definitely would recommend this place to others.

My family and I have all had the pleasure of training with Sensi Steve Ferraro. His passion, energy, knowledge and incredible teaching ability is second to none. He is able to adapt his teaching style to be able to relate to children as well as adults, creating an atmosphere that is both motivating and fun for all ages. These are the reasons, although no longer training myself I always recommend Ferraro Karate to people who are looking for a place to train martial arts. Whether you're looking for the right fit for your child or looking for a dojo that you yourself can call home you have found the right place.

Ferraro Karate is THE place to train karate. Its difficult to put into words what it is to train here, other than it being a place to constantly test your limits physically and also inwardly. This is a place where I always feel challenged to find more of myself and also see more of others. Part of that is being exposed to a group of people whom share the same drive to be better in their karate and fitness on a weekly basis. The teachers are passionate and have the depth and breadth of knowledge that leaves little not to be engaged. If you have the strange desire to kick your own ass (and get it kicked), Ferraro Karate is the place to do it.

“She Can do Both!” Happy Mother’s Day: Benefits of Martial Arts for Women

Martial Arts for Mother’s Day

Flowers might be the traditional gift for Mother’s Day, but they’re also what’s expected. Giving your mom a martial arts membership or enrolling her in a class might not be the usual choice, but there are many good reasons to consider giving your mom exactly that this Mother’s Day.

The Benefits of Martial Arts for Women

Studying the martial arts is about more than just getting a great workout. If you give your mom the gift of martial arts this Mother’s Day, here’s what she’ll be getting:

  • Improved cardiovascular health. Martial arts workouts strengthen the heart and circulatory system and can reduce the risk that your mom will develop heart disease or suffer a heart attack or stroke.
  • Improved flexibility. As we age, we lose flexibility in our joints. Taking a martial arts class keeps your joints lubricated and limber and can reduce the risk of arthritis.
  • Weight loss. It’s natural for our metabolisms to slow down as we age and exercising regularly is one of the best ways to prevent weight gain or shed excess pounds.
  • Reduced stress. Exercising releases feel-good hormones like dopamine and endorphins. That can help reduce the amount of stress in your mom’s life and also make it less likely that she’ll suffer from depression or anxiety.
  • The ability to defend herself. Learning self-defense techniques can help women feel more self-confident and less vulnerable.

In other words, when you give your mom a gift of the martial arts, you’re giving her much more than a few classes. You’re giving her improved health, better moods, and the ability to defend herself if the need arises.

Why Women Love the Martial Arts

There’s another reason to consider giving your mom a martial arts class or membership this Mother’s Day: women love the martial arts.

One of the main reasons they do is that women can excel in the martial arts even when going up against a much larger opponent. That’s because martial arts training teaches women to leverage their opponent’s body weight against them.

In many ways, martial arts training is preferable to weapons training. A woman who can be overpowered by an assailant might not be able to use a weapon effectively. But, a woman who has been trained to fight using martial arts techniques can defend herself.

On top of that, martial arts classes are an experience. You might think of martial arts training as an individual pursuit but taking a class is a social experience as well. Martial arts classes are a wonderful place to make new friends.

Conclusion

Mother’s Day is rapidly approaching. If you’re seeking a unique gift to give your mother on May 13th, consider giving her the gift of better mental and physical health, self-defense, confidence, and fun – in the form of a martial arts membership or class. She’ll love it!
