About Us

There is a physical side to Karate but there is also a cerebral side to it. For Sensei Wilfred Seerattan at the Toronto JKA Karate it is a way to develop character through strenuous physical activity. Courtesy and respect plays a large part in the development of character. Sensei Seerattan teaches karate with these and other virtues in mind but he also believes in having fun.

The atmosphere in the Karate dojo is very friendly. Everyone is traveling a path or way (do) in a quest to be the best they can be at the martial art and in this effort, higher belt levels are required to help lower belt. It’s members come from all walks of life. There are teachers, musicians, lawyers and bankers, to name a few.

Sensei Seerattan started in September 1983 has trained with some of the legends of martial arts and has achieved the rank of fifth degree black belt, competed in World championship in Japan with the Canadian National JKA Team, continues to train 5 days a week and still actively competes on a provincial and national level.

He teaches his skills to an appreciative group of adults and children at his dojo (school) several days a week and has been teaching karate for 24 years now.

Testimonials

I’ve been training with Sensei Wilfred for nearly a decade. He has worked with me since my first day as a white belt and has helped me obtain my second degree black belt.

He is a wonderful teacher who is technically strong and leads by example both in and out of the dojo. He takes care of all his students and adapts his teaching style to each one, which I witnessed first hand during my pre- and post-pregnancy training. I look forward to continue training with Sensei Wilfred and to introduce my new son to his classes in the future.

~ Nancy Kwun (Accountant)

I joined the dojo to support my son. It soon became apparent to me, this was a great place to be, and I have remained there now for 8 years.

After a hard day at work, it is sometimes easier to stay home, but it is ALWAYS more enjoyable and energizing to come to class. The classes are creative, challenging, and fun.

The socializing is wonderful, and it is easy to find supportive, long-standing friendships among the group. What are you waiting for? Try it!

~ Barry Espin (Property Manager)

I can’t thank you enough for your patience and dedication in making sure that Nicholas has some successes and enjoys karate. He very much enjoys his time with you and although he can be a challenge in the bigger class, the social aspect is important given his difficulties.
