Located in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Murphy’s Karate Academy teaches the art of Shotokan karate. All age groups, skill levels and abilities are welcome and can benefit from training in karate, as it helps students build self-confidence and sharpen body awareness. This particular style of karate was founded by Gichin Funakoshi, and encourages self-development, both physically and mentally. Our members strive towards continuous self-improvement, focusing on learning traditional karate skills, such as kata (forms) and kumite (sparring). At Murphy’s Karate Academy, we believe in creating a positive, structured atmosphere, where all of our members can learn, achieve, and have fun.
