Karate in Ontario: The Uphill Battle
The Cost of Raising Champion
In 2015, production of this documentary began. The cause: a disappointing lack of karate tournaments in Ontario. Now, for the first time, we go behind the scenes on the difficult journey of creating karate champions in Ontario. Canadian Karate is based on dedication and enthusiasm of the senseis, coaches, judges, athletes and their parents. Ontario is a very special case in this story. Every day the best of the best are faced with difficulties and hardships created by underfunding, stringent rules and a complete lack of comprehension of higher ups* in the fast-paced world of Karate in Ontario.
