Toronto Academy of Karate, Fitness & Health

The Toronto Academy of Karate, Fitness & Health was founded 46 years ago in 1970 by University of Toronto Professor and world-renowned martial artist Dr. Burt Konzak PhD.

The Academy has established an international reputation for its high standards of intelligent, disciplined and rigorous training.

We provide a safe, non-contact, friendly and supportive training environment for people of all ages with a focus on families.

We are the only Karate school with classes 6 days a week at several downtown and GTA locations.
