Standing on a street corner in any Canadian city...
you can find a martial art from any place else in the world... except Canada.  
Does Canada have a fighting background?  YES!

 

To understand Canada's fighting spirit one needs one must look in places generally out of the public eye and into the past to a day of necessity in World War 2. 

Canada played a leading, innovative role amongst its Allied partners in developing
self-defence and hand-to-hand combat skills empowering our boys to win a global war against the Axis powers.  This is Canada's legend. This is your heritage... and most Canadians don't know it.
