  • Shintaro and Garry are so friendly. they are very approachable. At first I was intimidated but they made me feel comfortable, and guided me onto the mat. I learned so many cool moves, and I got in great shape. Highly recommend.

  • I’ve always wanted to try martial arts. It was such a warm environment, so it was easy for me to get started. The workouts are really intense, but it’s not too overwhelming. I work with Garry one-to-one, and I saw a tremendous improvement in my takedown sills, submissions too

  • Ive been doing Jiu Jitsu for a while, and I was looking to step up my game. Shintaro and Garry were the perfect combination to giving me a much more well-rounded approach. Their techniques are unique, but based on fundamentals, highly effective and just amazing.

A Message Our Founders

 We at Kano are a family.  It was a dream come true when we all got together and were able to open the doors of Kano in 2019 (Oh, 2019).    Our dream was coming true and things were great until Covid-19 has thrown us flat on our back. But like true martial artists, we refuse to stay down.
