Welcome to the home of the Kokusai Butoku Kai of Canada, which was established in 2006.

We are dedicated to the preservation of the legacy of Sensei Richard 'Biggie' Kim here in Canada. For many years Sensei Kim traveled across Canada teaching to his many students. His karate camps at Guelph University were a high-point in training for students nation wide when they would have the opportunity to hear Sensei's lessons and wisdom delivered in his own special way.

Today Sensei Kim's students continue his legacy by passing his teachings on to a new generation of karateka. It is for those students that the Kokusai Butoku Kai of Canada, and it's international counterparts have been formed. In the hope that Sensei Kim's legacy will continue for many years to come.
