"Everyone at Shima is amazing. My son absolutely loves going to karate here. It’s the highlight of his week every single week. Everyone is so warm and welcoming. Highly recommended!" ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Jolie P. (Facebook review)
"Both my children have grown up training with Shima Karate School. The experience has been invaluable and contributed greatly to their success in all aspects of their lives. Kurt and Brenda both encourage and challenge the Shima students to be the best they can be. I wish them much success as they expand to a larger facility." ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Carolien B. (Facebook review)
"We still feel like new mebers of the group, but I have to say the training and care that all of the staff share is exceptional. They really make the effort to work with their students from a place of respect."

Shima Karate has been a part of our community since 1988, offering classes in traditional Goju-Ryu Karate in Nanaimo. Karate is fun and exciting way to improve your life, and there are many positive benefits to practising this honoured art. Karate is taught in a dojo (the word “do” means way, road, or path and the word “jo” means place. Therefore, the place of the way is the dojo) which is a place of honour and respect.
At Shima, we are not trying to make a 9-year-old into a Super Black Belt.
Due to developmental stages, kids that age are usually not physically ready and are definitely not mentally ready to be a black belt. Our goal at Shima is to develop a child over the long run to be an outstanding teen with integrity and a sense self-worth and personal goals.
They will be ready if they train on a regular basis to grade for their Black Belts when they are between 14 and 16 years of age. This will create a strong, confident person who does not bow to peer pressure and understands what it takes to succeed at anything they wish to do.
They will appreciate, through personal experience, the rewards of hard work and perseverance. This student will be ready to make their life their own with an understanding that they can do anything they want in life.
