My name is Matt Larrett and I have been studying Karate in Wawa for almost a decade and I have recently opened my own club. I have chosen to use the name Michipicoten Wado Kai to honour my karate roots.
I would like to make it clear that I am not in competition with Wawa Wado Kai or Dubreuilville Wado Kai, but more in partnership with, to bring about a more unified and continued excellence of Karate in Wawa. This partnership means that if you are a student in one of the Shintani Wado Kai clubs in the area, and in good standing, you may work out at any of the clubs. In Wawa, this means that you could potentially do karate up to 6 days a week!
Michipicoten Wado Kai offers classes Monday and Wednesday at 7.00 pm at Michipicoten High School (MHS) for any student 12ish and up. Senior ranks (adult blue belts and up) are invited to join me Fridays at 7.00 pm at MHS for more advanced techniques, a good workout, and basically a chance to just work on our stuff without the need to teach others.
Wawa Wado Kai runs Tuesday and Thursday at 5.30 at Ecole for all ages.
Dubreuilville Wado Kai runs Sunday and Wednesday at 6.00 at Ecole St. Joseph in Dubreuilville.
I am also in conversation with the Michipicoten Memorial Community Centre staff to try and offer a form of martial arts based fitness programming to their members, and more information on this will be available shortly. If you would be interested in such a program please feel free to contact me at Michipicoten Wado Kai on FaceBook or Brian Lachine at the Community Center, we would love to hear what kind of program you would be most interested in.
If you have ever wanted to give the martial arts a try you have plenty of options in Wawa, and I hope to see you out. You are welcome to try Michipicoten Wado Kai with no commitment or money down, and there really is a place for you regardless of your starting point or end goal. You are only competing against yourself.
