Twelve years ago, I found myself debating the mundaneness of a gym vs. the dynamic world of martial arts. While the ‘safe’ me wanted to lean toward a gym membership, the me that yearned for both mental and physical stimulation signed up for a free Shotokan trial lesson. You could not go wrong with ‘free’. After my initial trial classes, I was hooked. Karate challenged me and my comfort zone. It has sharpened my memory, improved my flexibility, strengthened my core and has helped me align my body and mind. Class is never mundane.
It’s a continuous learning environment. Growth and progress is constant.
What the martial arts in general, teach children and adults alike, is fitness, discipline and confidence, but what I believe sets North Toronto Karate School apart is the quality of their instructors and how well they integrate children into their programmes. My daughter who is now 14, began studying at NTKS 4 years ago and is now a brown belt, and for all the reasons described above, is developing into a terrific young adult, of whom my wife and I can be extremely proud.
My son is a Black Belt and joined North Toronto Karate school a year ago. He came from a different school and had lost total motivation, love and interest in Karate. Karate has always been his passion. When I noticed that he was not motivated anymore we decided to give North Toronto Karate School a try. Since my son started with NTKS he started loving Karate again. The school has taught him to love karate and have fun again, it is like a big family to us. I recommend North Toronto Karate School to anyone without hesitation. To see my son having interest in something again that he loves, makes me very happy. Renshi Michael Palitti and Sensei Kerr are great teachers and I don't think that I can find a better school where they offer world class teachers.

Our introduction into karate was an accident, friends wanted us to tag along …... 6 years later my 14 year daughter has morphed into a confident, motivated, focused, young adult, and attending her first National Competition this year. My husband and I are most impressed with the teaching and level of coaching expertise employed at the North Toronto Karate School, that can motivate these young adults to succeed. Congratulations Renshi Mike, and Sensei’s Patti and Jamie.
