About Us

Sensei Dan Nicholson started the Chilliwack Central Karate Club in 2004 at Central Elementary Community School. At the same time, he started the Cultus Lake Karate Club at Cultus Lake Elementary.


School Continues To Grow

The clubs grew by leaps and bounds over the first five years. To accommodate the growth, we opened our very own professional studio in August of 2009 on Rowat Avenue in downtown Chilliwack. After 5 years, we outgrew the Rowat Avenue location and moved to our current, larger location on Young Road. The school continues to grow year after year, and has become one of the most successful martial arts schools in the area!
