School of
and Self-Awareness


The longest running Martial Arts school in Orangeville

We know that a true martial artist is not born from just learning to kick and punch, but from striving to become a better person in every way of life. Our training is rooted in the Five Black Belt Principles: Honesty, Courtesy, Self-Discipline, Perseverance and a Positive Attitude. These are principles we carry with us into everyday life. Johanis’ Karate School is a goal setting school and the minimum goal is black belt. It is our job to empower our students to achieve their goals. Self-defense is a key component of the Johanis’ Karate School system. We are S.A.F.E. and we C.A.R.E. Our mission is to support our students to remain on a “Quest to be their BEST”.
