Welcome to the Edmonton Kyokushin Karate Club!

Our Club

The Edmonton Kyokushin Karate Club was started in 1983 by Sensei (now Shihan) Les Banas. The Club has produced many local and national champions, as well as providing excellent karate and self-defense instruction, and general fitness to many Edmontonians.

In the summer of 2012, Sempai Irek (Eric) Slobodzian became the head instructor of our dojo. He suceeds Sensei (now Shihan) Mac Mierzejewski (1991), Sempai Nathan Howat (2000) and Sempai Joe Johnston (2008) as head intructor of the Edmonton dojo.
