In 1967, Monty Guest—a revered black belt who was one of the top students of Canada’s premier martial artist, Masami Tsuruoka—developed the Kai-Shin form, which translates to “open mind”. Although several thousand years separates the birth of karate from the founding of the Kai-Shin system, Kai-Shin is still rooted in history, providing students young and old with a time-tested approach to building confidence, improving self-discipline, and bolstering fitness.
With more than four decades of teaching under his black belt, Sensei Guest still remains KaiShin Martial Arts’ head instructor. He, alongside a small team of instructors, shares his accrued wisdom at two facilities, including one in Mississauga that features a ring devoted purely to sparring and re-enacting famous Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robot matches.
