Founded in 1997 by Sensei Dan McDougall, Barrie Karate has continuously upheld our belief in solid traditional martial arts instruction to children and adults of all ages. No matter your age or ability, our unique approach to interacting with students fosters their growth and development into their full potential.

Barrie Karate hosts a number of programs, including:

  • Lil' Dragons (Ages 4 to 7)
  • Junior Karate (Ages 8 to 12)
  • Teen & Adult Karate (Ages 13+)
  • Women's Self-Defense (Ages 13+)

Not only do we offer a number of programs tailored to your needs, but we are happy to host birthday parties!
