What is Hospice? We are a team of concerned people who offer care for those with life threatening illnesses and offer support and understanding to their families. Our team includes palliative care trained physicians and nurses, who have received special education, and a group of specially trained volunteers. We attempt to help in any way that is appropriate to the individual's or family's needs.
We are a family oriented club promoting and teaching the art of Shotokan Karate as well as street defence.
Our primary goal is to develop self-confidence and discipline, while teaching self defence techniques that will enable our students to protect themselves in dangerous situations and to deal with life's more unpleasant moments. Along with the student's physical fitness and mastering of techniques, there should also be mental and emotional growth and development. We do not promote aggressive behaviour, and such conduct is not tolerated.
