World Karate Organization
Sensei Luciano and Sensei Marisa are co-owners of Dojo Tansei Arts Martiaux (Karate Tansei). Our karate school was established in 2006 and has gained popularity within the Montreal (Ahuntsic) area due to our teaching methods. Our team of qualified instructors treat every student as their personal project.
Karate Tansei’s guiding principle is that values such as partnership, courtesy, determination and respect, fostered in children at an early age, will produce a physically and spiritually healthy next generation of adults. We emphasize on the values that traditional karate offers. Respect, discipline, determination, perseverance and focus help to develop confidence in character. We offer classes for all ages in both french and english.
Karate Tansei is affiliated with WKO (World Karate Organization) – Shinkyokushinkai headed by President Midori Shihan in Japan. This is a strong organization representing a noble BUDO (Martial Art), for it can be trained throughout life, and holds the role of strengthening and enriching one’s mind.
The mind, the technique and the body, necessary parts to nourish the spirit of martial arts.
High Intensity Interval Training
HIIT is considered one of the most effective training to maximize calories burned in less time! The exercises are performed rapidly between cardiovascular and muscular activities at medium and high intensity (YOUR MEDIUM AND HIGH INTENSITY). This makes the muscles demand for more oxygen and that maximizes the burned calories. By optimizing oxygen intake, you conserve muscle, build lean muscle, and burn more calories during and after training.
