Build confidence and control who you are

Whether you are looking to improve your fitness level or learn self-defence, Joe Fournier’s Martial Arts can help you achieve your personal goals.

Our philosophy focuses on balancing mind and body in the pursuit of personal values and excellence. Perfection of one’s character is the ultimate goal.

Thousands of students have trained at the Hombu dojo and the program continues to expand. Sensei Fournier and his Sempais are extremely knowledgeable and provide excellent one-on-one and group instructions for all ages and skill level.

Along with Sempai McDonough and Sempai Bach McClure, each Joe Fournier’s Martial Arts location creates a family environment where people of all ages, physical conditions, and martial arts experience can spend time together learning ancient and new techniques.


Winds blow, typhoons roar, worlds collide. Yet I remain undisturbed…nothing shakes me.

Joe Fournier's Martial Arts

Congratulations to Ty Greenwood and Ben Frewin on successfully passing their Shodan (1st Degree) Black Belts in Karate and Kobudo.

I would also like to congratulate Sempai Don Haber on achieving his Yondan (4th Degree) Black Belt in both Karate and Kobudo also.
This is definitely a milestone that very few people achieve and remain dedicated his art and Dojo.
Very proud of everyone’s effort and dedication.

Black Belt presentation will be on August 24th at 6:00 PM at our Dojo in Fonthill.
All welcome.

We always keep our word.
I told Luc on the weekend that if I found a raisin in the butter tart after my ride with his dad (Trevis) in Hamilton he would have to fight me at the Dojo.
Guess what? I found one.
We keep our word.
I also lost the fight. LOL
Good job Luc.
