Family Karate Schools Association


Kazoku Kai - The Association of Family

Established 1994

        The Family Karate Schools Association (F.K.S.A.) is headed by Shihan Lou DeAdder, 7th Dan (7th Degree Black Belt). There are currently 3 schools:  Pickering, Oshawa. and Whitby. We study a traditional open style of Japanese/Okinawan Karate called 'Kazoku Kai ' - this translates to 'The Association of Family.'

        As our name suggests, we cater to a family-oriented environment. Membership is open to individuals and family's alike - classes are all ages (starting at 7 years and up). This allows for parents, children, brothers, sisters, friends and relatives to train together. There aren't many activities that offer this kind of opportunity!!!

Character-Building Aspects of Karate

        We develop traits such as:

    Respect -  for parents, family, friends, police, teachers and self-respect

    Confidence  -  through encouragement and the setting of short and long term goals

    Self-Esteem - feeling good about yourself and your accomplishments

    Discipline - functioning within the structured environment of Karate which carries over to the student's everyday life


Benefits of Training

          Training involves increased physical fitness, mental awareness, attention span, flexibility, agility, balance, listening skills, and learning to handle confrontations. Self-Defense is taught every step of the way. A physical confrontation is the last resort for our students. Our motto is:

'Confidence is knowing you do not have to fight'

    We have 2 newsletters per year which include special articles on Karate, training, student accomplishments, news items and much more. We also host 2 tournaments per year.

        Students also receive a FREE Student Manual upon joining which lists the requirements from White Belt to Black Belt. This is a great way for students to track their progress!!!


     The ability to motivate your students can spell the difference between success and failure to a school. We at Family Karate Schools realize this fact and as a result have many short and long term  G O A L S  for students to work towards.
