Okichitaw Martial Arts Program
Native Canadian Centre of Toronto Martial Arts has been offering instruction and training in martial arts since 1997. Located in Toronto, Ontario, Native Canadian Centre of Toronto Martial Arts has produced champions in life as well as in the martial arts.
Students and enthusiasts of martial arts have many reasons for their interest in the martial arts. Some are drawn to the physical fitness and weight-loss aspects of training. Others seek to add discipline and self control to their lives. While still others are concerned about safety and self-defense.
