    Our son and daughter have been with IBK since 2016 when they were 7 and 5 years old. Throughout the past 4 years, the have been excited to attend class every week. The instructors are great with the kids and while they create an atmosphere that promotes discipline, the kids also have a lot of fun. We have seen our children progress in their skills, have become more confident and assertive, and have shown more discipline in their daily lives at home and at school. We highly recommend IBK to anyone considering introducing their children to martial arts.

    I Love IBK and the instructors. At first, it was very intimidating coming into a DOJO in my thirties with no previous experience, But the instructors and fellow students are great at making everyone feel welcome. After just a few short classes I felt at home and no longer like an outsider. The instructors and fellow students treat everybody with respect no matter the age, gender or disability. I also have my two young girls, ages 5 and 8, in the kid's classes and both love them as well. Again the instructors do a great job using age-appropriate material and make a great environment for all age ranges. I would definitely recommend this DOJO.

    My 8-year-old son loves practicing jiu jitsu at Inukshuk Bushido Kai. It's been two years since we started taking him and it's been amazing to watch his confidence grow and see all the amazing skills he's learning while also having lots of fun. The senseis are great with the kids and teach them respect for themselves and others by leading by example. I am so happy that my son has the opportunity to learn from this wonderful community of instructors and kids.

    I chose to study Jujitsu because it offers various degrees of control in all facets of life. As an art, it is unique for this reason. Having the choice to navigate any situation to a desired outcome is why Jujitsu was the right choice for me. Before joining IBK, I tried many other clubs. Ultimately, what kept me at IBK was the quality of the instruction given. It became immediately apparent that each instructor was utilizing years of practical real world experience and had worked together to create a system to not only give you all the tools Jujitsu offers, but to make sure you knew how to use them. IBK has gifted me with confidence and more importantly, humility.​

    I’ve been training at Inukshuk Bushido Kai for a few months now, I felt welcome from the first moment I stepped in the Dojo. The Instructors took extra time to ensure I learned the basics before pairing me up, and constantly monitor students activity to ensure correct learning. They are a bunch of mature lads, with level heads and I enjoy every training session. I encourage anyone that is interested to attend a free session and see for yourself!

    I go to this school for 1 year already and I'm really satisfied with there classes. The teachers are very good and skilled and nice. I get to learn everyday new moves and I really recommend it
  • Mary


    I operate a commercial establishment on Whyte Avenue and I didn't realize I would get to use my new skills so quickly, but the very night after the seminar we had a drunk in our store that was passing out and wouldn't leave. So I gave him a poke in the radial nerve ... boy did he jump! That really got his attention and we were able to escort him out of the store without further incident and no-one got seriously hurt. This is really great stuff! I want my entire staff to attend the next session.

7 Virtues


Justice, Integrity
Be acutely honest throughout your dealings with other people. Believe in justice not from other people, but from yourself. To the true samurai, there are no shades of gray in the question of honesty and justice. There is only right and wrong.

Rise up above the masses of people unwilling to act. Hiding like a turtle in a shell is not living at all. A samurai must have heroic courage. It is absolutely risky. It is certainly dangerous. But courage is not the absence of fear and doubt. It is having the strength to conquer them.


Benevolence, Compassion
Through intense training the samurai becomes quick and strong. They are not as other people. They develop a power that must be used for the good of all. They have compassion. They help their fellow man at every opportunity. If that opportunity does not arise, they go out of their way to find one.


Samurai have no reason to be cruel. They have no need to prove their strength. The samurai are courteous even to their enemies. Without this outward show of respect, we are nothing more than animals.


When the samurai have said they will perform an action, it is as good as done. Nothing will stop them from completing what they have said they will do. They do not have to “give their word.” They do not have to “promise.” Speaking and doing are the same action.


A true samurai has only one judge of honor, and this is yourself. Decisions you make and how these decisions are carried out are a reflection of whom you truly are. You cannot hide from yourself.


For the samurai, having done some “thing” or said some “thing”, they know that they now own that “thing.” They are responsible for it, and all the consequences that follow. The samurai are intensely loyal to those in their care. To those they are responsible for, they remain fiercely true.
