What We Do

About Curran’s Karate

We are a dojo located in Downtown Maple Ridge. We have been serving our community for over 10 years, and live by the approach that it takes a village to raise a child.


Our karate classes are designed in a way that teaches focus, and our students become better by practicing it in every class. After a short while, focus becomes a habit that is used outside of the dojo on a daily basis.

Bright Ideas in Instruction

Age specific curriculum.  We break up our classes based on age to ensure that they are able to progress at a level that’s right for them.  This isn’t the common approach for martial arts, but it is ours.  We like to make sure that each child is placed in a class that will allow them to thrive, and learn at the pace at which they are ready.


Our dojo is our life.  We love working with children and watching them grow up.  Our most rewarding moments come from seeing the increase in confidence and self-esteem in our students. We really provide personal development classes for kids, and learning karate is a bonus. A flying flip kick may be cool – however lessons in determination, compassion, and goal attainment are far more important life skills to master. 

World Level Instruction

Not everyone has the goal of competing, however it is nice to know that if you do you are in the right place.  We have trained multiple regional, provincial, and national champions.  In addition, we have coached Pan-Am and World level competitors, so if you child shows promise to be the next super ninja, they won’t be held back due to instructors who do not have the necessary experience. 

Some Fun Facts

We love what we do, and do our best each and every class. As a result we have developed a way for students to have fun, while learning real content.


Years Experience 


Black Belts in 10 years.  Most schools would have 300 in the same time, however we like that our dojo makes them earn it.


Dollars raised for local elementary schools since we opened.  We don’t like to brag, but we do believe that giving back to our community takes action not talk. 


Years is the age that you can begin training with us.  Actually the record is 2 years 10 months, but that guy had been watching his brother in class since he was born.

Our dojo is a place where we can teach children to accomplish anything, and that hard work is the key to any success!
