Kancho Yoshikazu Suzuki

Born in 1971, born in Tokyo.
Started Kyokushin in 1986, attended All Japan Tournament, and All Japan Weight Tournament, and others.

He started instructing karate and have experience instructing his students in Japan and 20 other countries.

In October 2020, he established Kyokushin Bugakukai.

I started Karate when I was in high school, and kept pursuing Karate over anything else that I have tried.  And now, it has been over 35 years since then.

In these years, I have learned “Joy with others who trained with me, fulfillment to win the tournament, hardship of training, appreciation and dignity for epople’s support and encouragement through hard times and importance of continuity which means practice makes perfect”.

I’d like to share my expereinces with you and keep working with you.  OSU

Karate is the ideal activity for children and young adults for their physical and mental development.

Physical Development

Most children in Canada do not exercise enough and are at high risk for heart and stroke problems in their adult life. In practicing Karate children develop a physical workout routine that increases their chance to keep fit and be healthy. Through karate children improve their:

  • Cardiovascular condition
  • Muscles strength and tone
  • Coordination
  • Flexibility
  • Mental Development

With karate training children learn how to:

  • Develop self-discipline and awareness
  • Improve self-respect
  • Increase their concentration level


The benefits of Karate for adults are as rewarding as for children but with a different approach. Adults concentrate more on improving their fitness and on acquiring new techniques for stress relief and self-defence.


From the white-belt level to the black-belt level, adults learn a variety of responses to a variety of attacks in a non-violent philosophy.


Self-confidence comes from being challenged to one’s limits, confidently meeting them, then surpassing one’s expectations.


Healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. Adults participate in a variety of fitness building activities that teaches them how to relieve their stress level, to improve their flexibility and coordination and to reduce their recuperation time.
