Karate for Families

Tri-City Training has been an amazingly positive experience for my 3.5 year old son. Their care & commitment to excellence while keeping it fun is refreshing. If your children want to have fun in a very informative and respectful environment then you should look into kinder karate today!

Our family has had the privilege of knowing Tom Cako for the past decade. In that time, I have watched with great admiration Tom’s low key positive hands on style of mentoring young men and women. He has been a tremendous influence on our son who has attended Tom’s dojo since opening. During that period of time has advanced his physical and mental skills, often times with some positive coaching and encouragement from Tom.  He is an incredible role model.

Sensei Amanda joined 23rd Guelph Girl Guides at Jean Little P.S. for an evening of karate. She lead the group in a class, teaching self defense moves but must importantly talking with the girls about what it means to be ‘strong girls’. Her enthusiasm and energy was an inspiration to the girls to think about healthy active living choices both physically and emotionally. Domo Arigato Sensei Amanda
