Our Black Belts

Each karateka whose name appears below has been training for several years under the guidance of Shihan Denis Cordeiro at Montreal Kanreikai Karate school. They have strived through all the steps leading to the Black Belt and the title of Senpai. Such a journey is filled with hard work and perseverance and illustrates the philosophy of World Kanreikai World Karate: never give up, reach beyond your limits!

We are very proud of our Senpai. They are ambassadors of our school and organization around the world!
