The Dojo

Roberts Karate operated as a community based dojo out of the basement of St. Matthias Church at the corner of Kortright and Edinburgh Roads from 1988-2003.  Following the move to our current facility, other Karate schools immediately took advantage of the vacancy of our old home.

In January 2004, we moved to our freshly constructed, fully equipped 2250 sq ft facility on 200 Southgate Drive, not far from the new Bishop MacDonnell high school.  The dojo is complete with male and female change rooms, washrooms, and room for a variety of training equipment.

The dojo floor consists of hardwood flooring which helps to provide a traditional feel for karate training.  The 20 ft ceilings allow for free flowing weapons/kobudo training without concern of smashing any light fixtures, and a large supply of Ju-Jitsu mats allow for safe practice of break-fall exercises, self-defense techniques, and Kumite (Fighting) sessions while helping to maintain a safe environment when working hard and training diligently.

The dojo also contains heavy-bags, wavemasters, kick bats, shields and many sets of hand, leg and chest pads that allow students of all age groups to work their techniques effectively and safely.
