Kazoku Martial Arts Centre and Smart Choice E-waste Recycling are partnering up to help you get rid of your electronic waste and other materials this month.
It has been just over a week since our Mother’s Day High Tea and we are super excited to share some of the precious moments we were able to capture, thanks to Sweet Sunny Five Photography. We would like to thank, once again, everyone who helped out and contributed to our fundraiser. We were able to successfully raise another $1500 towards our kid’s trip to Japan in 2021, and we now sit at $3000.00 raised so far!
So thank-you again to: E.V.O Kitchen, Sweet Sunny Five Photography, Monigrams Coffee Roasters, Le Prix, The Spiced Leaf, Play with Clay, Glam and Glow by Reema, Meals Without Madness, Langdon Hall, and all of the individuals who donated amazing prizes for our participants to win. And another special thank-you to our families inside and outside the studio as well as our friends for helping with running the show (set-up and take-down)… and let’s not forget about the Volundads!! You guys rocked the show.
It’s just been over a week since our group of five took on 1,776 steps to the top of the CN Tower for our 7th annual climb. It’s hard to believe it’s already been seven years of climbing, but each year brings on new experiences and gives other climbers the chance to test themselves physically and mentally.
This year Jeric and I took three new climbers to Toronto in order to climb for the World Wildlife Fund who pushed themselves and made it up in under 30 minutes. Our youngest AND oldest climbers to date.
Not only did we manage to climb in no time, we were also able to raise a total of $1,060 for the WWF. So in seven years of climbing, we’ve almost raised $10,000!
I want to send my biggest thanks to everyone who came out to help us fundraise back in March and who still continued to donate while our climbers prepared for the big day. It’s always a blast and next year I will be preparing another team for our 8th annual climb. If you would like to join us, be sure to let us know by February 2019 when we assemble our next group.
And to find out more about the WWF, please visit their website.
For those of you who missed out on Sunday, here’s what we got up to!
On Sunday, March, 18th, 2018 members of our club banned together to help us fundraise for two of our big events here at the studio. One is our annual CN Tower Climb for the World Wildlife Fund and the other is our cultural experience excursion to Japan in 2021.
From 8am to 8pm our students, parents, clients, family and friends came in to keep the wheels spinning while we were live on Instagram. Along side them were fellow cyclists from 3Sixty5 Cycling, our own personal trainer Whole Health Chelsi, and fuelling us along the way was Brutes and Babes Nutrition Inc. While streaming, our viewers helped spread awareness of our mission which helped us reach beyond our $1,000.00 goal to hit $1,128.00 and it’s still continuing to climb!
So on behalf of everyone here at Kazoku Martial Arts & Fitness I would like to thank everyone who came out and to all of you who watched us ride. We would not have been able to achieve our goal without your love and support.

In less than a month James Wyatt will be taking another team up the stairs of the CN Tower to help fundraise for the World Wildlife Fund. This will be his seventh year helping the WWF aim to make a positive impact in the world.
How does climbing stairs help?
In order to participate in the event, each climber must raise a minimum of $150.00, which goes towards the global efforts of the World Wildlife Fund. His team is encouraged to fundraise as much as they can, aiming for $1000.00 each year.
In addition to the CN Tower Climb, the Kazoku Martial Arts Family is also looking to fundraise for their cultural experience in Japan 2021. We will be sending our students to go train with the masters within the Seiwa Kai Association in Tokyo and to have the opportunity to experience Japanese culture first hand.
For both of these events, James has organized a 12 hour relay to be held online via Instagram (@KMACentre) this coming Sunday, March 18th to collect online donations while him and his students cycle on their stationary bikes from 8am-8pm. Viewers who donate will also have the chance to enter in our raffle for a wonderful bike (for ages 7-10) donated by our friends at 3SIXTY5 Cycling.
So be sure to follow us and watch us live as we challenge ourselves and our community to keep the wheels spinning for twelve straight hours!

After a month of planning I’m excited to say that our event was a BIG success! But for those of you who may not know, here’s what we got up to!
A team of us will once again climb all 144 flights of stairs up the CN Tower. In doing so we have to fundraise for the World Wildlife Fund. So to collect those donations, Autumn from ONE Movement and myself (James), from Kazoku Martial Arts Centre, came up with our first ever Dance-a-thon and Karate Marathon. Two worlds collided over six hours giving our students the chance to experience something different.
With many of our own attending the event and draw prizes to be won, we were able to collect $300.00 for our fundraiser. After calculating everything that’s been collected so far, from our event and our other team members, we have raised over $1000.00! And now with just one month to go all we need to do is prepare for the hike up 144 flights of stairs in the CN Tower.
Thank-you again to all of the local businesses who donated items for our draw prizes; including Monigram Coffee Roasers, E.V.O Kitchen, Sunset Gourmet, Sugar Berries, Moksha Cambridge, and Nature’s Vibe. Also a BIG thank-you to Autumn for letting us use her space and another thank-you to all of those who participated.
