The Gloucester Traditional Karate Association has been teaching
Meibukan Goju-Ryu Karate-do in the City of Gloucester (now part of
the City of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada) since 1985. It is one of the
few schools in the area teaching this style of Karate-do. The
Gloucester Traditional Karate Association is the Canadian
Headquarter of the All American Meibukan Association under the
late Master Mirakian of Watertown, Mass. USA
Traditional Okinawa Goju-ryu Karate-do training is strenuous and
disciplined. The emphasis is on repetitious practice of basic
technique and kata. This intense and demanding training affords our
students the best long term results.
Traditional Karate-do is a life long commitment. It is not a
short term course. Because of this, it lets the students improve
their health and self-discipline, as it strengthens their bodies
and cultivates their minds.
The chief instructor of GTKA is Mr. Hing-Poon Chan, 7th Dan, Kyoshi, who started
his Goju-ryu training in 1968. The Gloucester Traditional Karate
Association is a non-profit organization under the City of Ottawa
