Canada's Gojukai Association

The IKGA is the governing body for International Karate Do Gojukai in Canada. We accreditate member dojo's and mentor the educational process within these dojo's. Our members come from all over Canada and all walks of life but what we have in common is the practise and training of Gojukai Karate.

The International Karatedo Gojukai Association Canada (IKGA Canada) is dedicated to providing instruction in the art and science of Yamaguchi Gojuryu Karatedo within Canada.It is responsible for the orderly development of this unique form of karate, under the general guidance of the international headquarters located in Tokyo, Japan.

As you will see from our National Site links page Gojukai Karate is truly an international organisation. This style of karate is practised from Australia to the UK, Argentina to Yellowknife, Canada and, of course, Japan.

The goals of the association are:
  • to promote Gojuryu Karatedo of the IKGA as a martial art and lifetime activity.
  • to develop standards to help members to achieve their potential with safety.
  • to provide uniform training in IKGA gojuryu karatedo within Canada.
  • to govern the conduct of its members.
  • to represent Canada to the headquarters of the International Karatedo Gojukai Association in Tokyo.
IKGA Canada was incorporated under the laws of Canada in 1983. It is the only legitimate Canadian representative of Yamaguchi Gojuryu Karatedo.
