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.

The Ultimate New Years Resolution

The Ultimate New Years Resolution

The New Year is here, and with thousands of goals and resolutions in sight as well,

2017 is the year you should try something new!

Martial arts is an established system that can better the entirety of your being.

Whether you need mental benefits like furthering your discipline muscle, physical

benefits like getting in shape, or maybe you’re just looking to make some new friends;

martial arts is for you.

3 Martial Arts Benefits

Physical

The most common New Year’s resolution you will hear is to get in better shape.

The physical benefits from martial arts are obvious.

Martial arts will get you in shape in a way you find fun. Your body gets more comfortable

with itself, so you have better control over your physical abilities as well.

Needless to say, arming yourself with the self defense tactics from martial arts makes

you better equipped to deal with some of the more dangerous physical obstacles in life.

Really, martial arts is more than just physical improvement.

Mental

Looking for more discipline, focus, and awareness?

There are several martial arts benefits, but the greatest is the mental toughness.

Martial arts helps connect your mind with your brain. It helps your mind gain the

necessary control it needs to do this. It helps you find comfort in stressful situations.

Maybe you want to be more adventurous, less scared of the world, or more adjusted to

your own body?

It’s more than just kicking and punching. The spiritual benefits are plenty. There has

always been a strong connection between the zen world and martial arts. This mental

improvement can help you deal with your anxiety, your depression, and any other

negative mental stressor that is plaguing your day to day.

Social

The social benefits of martial arts are often overlooked.

Maybe you’ve gotten in with the wrong crowd, and have decided that you need to add

fresh faces to your life. Maybe you just need some new friends.

The martial arts community is one of the friendliest, most supportive, and inspiring

groups of people you will ever find. It’s a great place to make lifelong friends and

relationships.

You will find that the martial arts world is fascinating on it’s own, and that you could

spend a whole lifetime indulging in some of its pleasantries.

You will get addicted to the lifestyle and your new friends will be able to empathize.

Why just pick one New Year’s resolution this year when you can be apart of something

that covers so much more than just one improvement?

This new year, you could be smarter, healthier, calmer, and happier.
