Dojo Van Rel Owner

Hi, I’m Sensei Gabriel Van Rel.

I KNOW HOW DIFFICULT AND CONFUSING
FINDING A MARTIAL ARTS SCHOOL CAN BE.

I remember when I was a child, feeling uncertainty about beginning martial arts. I wondered if I had what it took to succeed and I wasn’t the most athletic or confident child - quite the opposite. Little did I know that beginning my martial arts journey would be one of the most profound experiences of my life!

When I opened my school in 2014, I made a commitment to serving and empowering the community of London by teaching children and adults the confidence, leadership, and fitness skills that can only be achieved through martial arts.

We share and teach The Same Values You Teach At Home.

Our programs have a strong focus on personal development. The foundations of our morals, values and core character traits are formed in our early years. For this reason, the programs at Dojo Van Rel are an essential way to enhance the growth and personal development of young students of all ages.

WHAT IS SHOTOKAN KARATE?

Shotokan Karate is the style of martial arts practiced by Dojo Van Rel students.
Shotokan Karate is considered to be the most effective martial arts system in the world.

It uses natural, easy-to-learn, sequential movements that will enhance your health as you learn self-defense. It uses sequential movement to transfer natural energy from one body segment and allows muscle groups to work intricately together to produce the most effective and powerful movements.

The journey from White Belt to Black Belt is one of incremental learning and skill development, that students of any age and fitness level can embark on.
