Karate (Shorin Ryu & Goju Ryu) Programs

Karate uses powerful hand strikes, blocks and kicks as a means of self-defence, self-discipline, spiritual growth and physical conditioning. Karate develops the mind, body and spirit and encourages a balance of knowledge, strength and honesty. Karate simply means the art of "Empty Hand". It describes the techniques of fighting with the body's natural weapons.

"The ultimate aim of the art of Karate lies neither in victory or defeat,

but in the perfection of the character of its participants."

As there are many different languages in the world it is the same when it comes to Martial Arts. We offer two styles of Karate that are both rooted in Okinawa. Shorin Ryu means "Small Pine Tree Way/Style". Goju Ryu meaning "Hard Soft Way/Style". This is important to know as at the time of the inception of these two styles the people of Okinawa were not allowed by their governing country to have any metal implement and/or allowed to practice any Martial Art. This being the case they had to develop very effective and skillful Martial Arts to enable them to defend themselves even from a armed adversary. This is why these two Martial Arts can still be found being practiced all over the world today.

We believe that being a Martial Artist is not just learning to kick and punch, it is about becoming the best that you can be.

Tai Chi Chuan Programs

Tai Chi Chuan is an ancient Chinese Martial Art developed into a exercise system. Tai Chi Chuan is comprised of slow transitional movements that improve the overall health of its practitioners. It is a complete system embracing the mental, spiritual and physical fundamentals of well being. It can be practiced by anyone, regardless of age or ability. Tai Chi Chuan improves balance, range of motion, coordination, flexibility and strength.

Tai Chi Chuan is often referred to as "moving meditation". Weight bearing movements will tone the muscles and aid in the release of tension. It also calms the mind while the body is in motion. The breathing and relaxation techniques that are practiced in Tai Chi Chuan bring calmness to the practitioner.

"Grand Ultimate Force/Fist" is the translation of Tai Chi Chuan. On another level, the movements imbedded in Tai Chi Chuan are highly applicable to one's personal self-defence. Yielding should not be interpreted as being weak, but rather as using a different vantage point thereby gaining an opportunity to redirect and/or neutralize an attack.

Characteristics that Tai Chi Chuan practitioners strive to acquire are a sense of balance through breathing and slow yet coordinated motion, keeping the muscles relaxed yet active, while the mind is calm yet alert.

These programs provide a unique opportunity for all ages to learn a variety of "Life Skills" and provide "Family Strengthening" through a common practice. Here is one example of family strengthening that spans three generations in one family. Grandma takes Tai Chi Chuan, her daughter takes Karate with her three daughters and dad is thinking about it. I hope he doesn't think too long. I'll bet that family has a lot to talk about and if not, they are still training together and getting fit together.

Fitness & Weight Loss

All of the programs that we provide by their nature will affect your health, fitness level and in turn provide/cause weight loss. The big extra in our programs that you won't get in a fitness program or a weight loss program anywhere else is that you will learn how to defend yourself ! We have an example in our club of a boy that after a month of training lost between 10 to 15 lbs. Shortly after a lady joined the club and a few month later she had lost 35 lbs. This lady was the boy's mom, and the list goes on !

Remember our common goal:

fitter, trimmer, healthier & safer !!!

The key to all of the above is

NO Magic, NO Pills, NO Machines.

Just believe that you can do it !!!

Seminars range from success oriented to pride in parenting in today's environment. Of course self-defence would be at the top of the list such as Street Proofing for kids and Street Smarts for adults.

Buick's Karate Dojo also provides a unique seminar in self-defence that may be considered a great equalizer. This seminar is for individuals that want to be able to defend themselves in a street situation. This seminar is called the Kubotan Seminar.
