Welcome to UBC Recreation Martial Arts Programs!

UBC Recreation offers a variety of martial arts taught by experienced martial arts instructors who integrate discipline, precision, power, and self-defense into every lesson. These lessons will help participants find focus and build self-confidence while achieving mental and physical strength. The classes we offer, including but not limited to Aikido, Tae Kwon Do, Iaido, and Judo, are taught so all levels are welcome.
