West River Karate began in 2006 with the dreams and aspiration of Sensei Kenny Lim to share the Hayashi Ryu Karate-Do system of karate. A proven champion at a young age, Sensei Lim teaches the hard work ethic, respect and perseverance needed to advance in both karate and in life. West River Karate is located in the heart of Vancouver, British Columbia, and we have been a big part of the community for children and teenagers of all ages.
To edify, encourage, and make evident to our students that accomplishment is the journey of life, not the destination.
Every situation has a positive aspect; it is our task to find it. Approach each obstacle with focus, determination, perseverance and an optimistic attitude. Achieve this, and success will be yours.
