About the facility

Whether it was when we first opened in 2007 or after the school completed the recent renovations, our staff and many of our students laboured away day and night to build the facility we now train in. The facility started off as 3300 square foot area with long walls and cement floors; it has been transformed into a training facility that was modern, clean, bright and had the best equipment and training in Ottawa. Together as a group, we push each other every day to become better martial artists and people. We challenge each other to grow, and we inspire each other to be the best that we can be mentally, physically, and spiritually. All of you inspire me every day to become the best person and martial artist that I can be. Through your participation at Zen you have changed yourself and your training partners for the better as martial artists and as human beings.

Our Vision

Zen Martial Arts and Fitness Centre helps over 300 students work towards maintaining a healthy lifestyle. We will train together in a premier martial arts and fitness facility in Ottawa.

Our Mission

Zen Martial Arts and Fitness Centre is a a force in the lives of our instructors and students, helping them evolve into better people living fuller lives in Mind, Body and Spirit. We will ensure that every student is recognized for their unique individuality. Our combined strength will improve the lives of people and communities locally and around the world.

It makes us truly happy whenever we get a chance to reflect on everything that we've have accomplished so far together; students, trainers, fighters, and staff. Wether your training will help you lost weight, overcome some bad habits, develop confidence, discipline, focus, physical strength, increased flexibility or improved balance, and have the will, we can help support your change for the better. Some of us have achieved our brown belts in karate, our blue belts in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, our Level II Muay Thai prajiet, completed our first fight in the ring, or have even won a championship titles. Through it all, we continue to share good times, disappointments, sometimes injuries, but always progress.

Zen has grown into a family of lifelong friends. It has become that wonderful world that inspires people to new heights. Zen has become a place where dreams can and do happen and we all want to help you bridge the gap between your dreams and achieving personal greatness
