Blue Dragon Martial Arts
Founder and lead instructor Mike Tolhurst established Blue Dragon Martial Arts in 2001. Sensei Mike has earned the rank of 5th degree black belt. Mike's freestyle martial arts approach blends his traditional Karate training and strong background in self-defense with other styles including, Jujitsu, Hapkido and Tae Kwon Do. Blue Dragon Martial Arts is not your typical karate club; we are a martial arts school where the goal is to teach focus, discipline, courage and fitness to all students. Sensei Mike and his assistant instructors will ensure that you won't be lost in class.

A few reminders and housekeeping items.
Please remove your footwear: This is for all students, siblings and parents when you enter the dojo. Especially when it is wet, snowy or gravelly. We want to decrease the amount of dirt and muck tracked in to maintain the health of our kids as much as possible.
In between classes: Students and siblings are welcome to play with the balls during breaks but please try to have them do a quiet activity during class time, the sound carries quite a bit over the wall and can distract the ongoing class.
During class: There is a colouring book, colours and some toys for siblings to use under parent supervision. You are welcome to take your picture home with you. If your child is using these resources, do try to pick up when your done.
Workout equipment:Try your best to keep your little ones away from the workout equipment and tires. These are for the adults and advanced students to use and can cause injury. We are fortunate to date that no accidents have occurred, but we would like to do our best to prevent any unnecessary injury from occurring.
As always, thank you for choosing us to be a part of your family’s physical education!
