The Alberta Shito-ryu Itosu-kai Karate and Kubudo Association (http://itosuryu.com/) has been offering traditional Karate classes in Edmonton and area since 1979.  We are a non-profit association with volunteer instructors delivering a traditional, recognized karate program.  We are excited to be returning to Blue Quill to offer classes again.
