Head Sensei Renshi Adrian Robichaud first started practicing karate at the age of 11. He has studied various styles of karate over the years. He is a practicing doctor of chiropractic at Robichaud Chiropractic & Orthotics in Oshawa with over 25 years of martial arts training. He believes that you can benefit from karate from the very first class. He accomplishes this by teaching practical techniques from day one. He has a shodan (black belt) in Go Ju Ryu karate and a roku dan (sixth degree black belt) in Shorin Ryu Karate. He has obtained the title Shihan (Officer for Canada for World Okinawan Shorin-Ryu Karate and Kobudo Association). He has also trained in Judo and Jiu-Jitsu.
As a chiropractor he has a thorough understanding of the human body and he uses this to enhance the safety and effectiveness of his instruction. He enjoys teaching students of all ages.
