River House Karate Club

History

Karate began at the Brockville YMCA as a fee-based program in 2002 with Sensei Scott Hall and approximately 40 participants. The club grew and in 2006 the program was offered at no additional cost to Y members. As of 2019, the club has 80 regular participants, 17 black belts have graduated, and a number of seminars and competition-style events have been held as fundraisers for Strong Kids, the YMCA’s annual campaign to raise funds to provide subsidies to children and adults who would not otherwise be able to participate in Y programs and services.

The club has participated in many local competitions and is a member of the Ontario Karate Federation.
