Try Savate Kickboxing for fitness, competition or just for fun. We have entry-level classes that are safe and enjoyable. We will teach you the skills you need to progress into one of our more challenging advanced classes. This kickboxing art involves a combination of effective hand strikes and dynamic kicks. Savate uses the hands and the whole shoe as a weapon for striking with force, finesse and precision. The training sessions rely on partner drills, using controlled contact on each other, allowing the student to develop their balance, distance, precision and timing. This art is becoming more popular with women as it is graceful and elegant; however, with its powerful variety of kicks, punches, and sweeps, Boxe Francaise Savate is an effective sport fighting system.

Meaning 'Empty Hands' is a Japanese martial art which teaches unarmed self-defence techniques, blocking and counterattacking. A highly dynamic and physical art, the Japanese Karate Shotokan style is taught by qualified instructors from the Japan Karate Association.

In the traditional sense, Iaido is the Japanese martial art associated with the smooth, controlled movements of drawing the sword from its scabbard, striking or cutting an opponent, and then replacing the sword in the scabbard. New students of iaido start learning with a wooden sword (bokuto) and as they progress in their training, they advance to the use of an unsharpened sword (iaito). Advanced practitioners use a sharpened metal sword (shinken). The style of iaido taught at Concordia is called “Muso Shinden Ryu”.
Because iaido teaches the use of actual metal weaponry, with its inherent risk, it is almost entirely based on the teaching of forms, or kata. Iaido does not include direct contact or sparring of any kind. Because of this non-competitve aspect, and iaido's emphasis on precise, controlled, fluid motion, it is sometimes referred to as "moving Zen."

Kendo literally means "The way of the Sword" in Japanese. It refers to the art of traditional Japanese fencing that was originally developed and practiced by Bushi or Samurai. Kendo originated from the various sword fighting techniques resulting from hundreds of years of combat and study.
It deals with the physical and mental skills necessary for sword fighting. The goal of Kendo is not only to develop the physical capability for fighting but also the moral and spiritual aspects that may be applied in coping with real life. In Japan, it is one of the most popular martial arts. The practitioner is taught skills in attack and defence involving foot and hand movements usually with a partner wearing armour. Kendo has spread to other parts of the world such as North America and Europe. It has developed a strong following in Canada and in Quebec as well. Kendo is continually growing in popularity worldwide.
