    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 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.

Benevolence or Mercy
As a warrior, the Samurai have the power to kill. However, benevolence is about making sure that you are balanced in how you think. It is about making sure that you also have sympathy and mercy at the right time. For the Samurai it was about making sure you fought for the right reason and that if you had to kill someone, you did it for the right reason and your belief but that you also make sure that if there was no need to kill you would have mercy and be sympathetic.

Loyalty was probably one of the very important parts of what they did. They treated each other like family and would do everything within their power to protect and help their samurai warriors.
