I'm interested to know if anyone here has recommendations for clubs focused on practical self-defense in the Ottawa, ON or Gatineau Quebec region of Canada? I'm moving to the capital region next week and would like to find a new club.
I'm rather new to martial arts - I've only been training for a year. I'm not wedded to a style or art form. I've put more time into the Chinese martial arts. I've been previously training in North Shaolin and sport Sanda. But I also did a few junior belts of Karate as a kid.
I'm looking for any recommendations for tradtional Karate or Kung Fu in the area that take a practical approach and hopefully use kata-based sparring.
I would be really grateful for any help provided. Cheers,
