Sensei Bert Freeman


“Parents, you can train with your kids!”



Bert Freeman joined the dojo in 1976 and achieved his black belt in 1982. He has been in the Dojo for 35 years. Everyone will remember the day, in 2010, when Bert Freeman, 65 years old, won first place in the Black Belt Kumite competition, an achievement of true Karate skill and spirit.

Mr. Freeman has taught many classes over the years and has always been a strong supporter of the dojo.

Bert Freeman has been married for 44 years to Carolyn, is a father to Kelly and grandfather to Jessica (14) and Sarah (11). He has been a successful businessman for over 40 years, and most recently was the President and Creative Director of Freeman Communications, an award-winning and a well known graphic design and marketing company in downtown Toronto.

He is a man of energy and integrity and we have great confidence in his skills.
