The moment I walked through the door I knew I had chosen the right club…

"The moment I walked through the door I knew I had chosen the right club. A positive uplifting atmosphere with no ego or intimidation. I leave my stress of everyday life at the door and let the great coaching staff put me through my paces. For myself as a competitor, I have everything I need to be prepared. With the different guest instructors demonstrating some amazing skills, you will always have something to keep you engaged and wanting to achieve whatever goals you have. The staff and amazing members I feel right at home in a positive environment. You may not come in with a smile but you will leave with one." - Dan B, competitive team member

As a parent, we love the kids kickboxing program…

“We asked Jacoby why he liked kickboxing so much. He said he has made some new friends and the coaches are really awesome! As a parent, we love the kids kickboxing program because it has shown Jacoby how to be responsible for his own things and has shown him a new level of respect. The classes are fun and engaging for the kids and a great way for them to be active. The coaches provide a great environment for learning and really recognize the kids for the hard work they put into every class. Jacoby always leaves class feeling good about himself and usually pretty tired! (that’s a bonus for the parents) Two thumbs up from this mom!" - Penny & Jacoby B, youth program member

We are like a big family – we praise each others successes.

"I started my journey at SKA at 210 lbs, and I’m currently sitting at 150 lbs, and am in the best athletic shape I’ve ever been in.

I love my SKA family and invite anyone who was once just like me, scared to believe in themselves, to come out and see what we’re about. Then you too will think, yes, you can do it, because WE believe in you, you’re teammates! We are like a big family at SKA. We encourage each other and praise each others successes.”  - Angela R, competitive team member

It’s an atmosphere of people who care…


Sudbury Kickboxing Academy is a really special place. I’ve always been active and involved in fitness spaces but I can honestly say there is no place like SKA. It's an atmosphere of people who love and care about the well-being of the ones they are training with. I loved and appreciated that anyone, at any walk in life and fitness journey, were always welcomed in with open arms. Every person is an important part of the team, and that doesn’t happen everywhere. I never left the dojo without a smile on my face. Thank you Dawn for your tireless work and endless passion, push, and love. – Sara C

Everyone should experience the positive changes it creates in your life…

“I can’t imagine my life without SKA. It has made a huge impact in terms of physical and mental well being. The dojo is a true team environment. Everyone is welcoming and motivating, all skill levels work with each other to foster a good learning environment. Dawn carries a traditional background, and brings the values of respect and honour to the dojo as a sacred space. She is a warrior woman coach with a heart of gold, a great combination, and she has a great team of instructors behind her that each bring something valuable of their own. I recommend Sudbury Kickboxing Academy to anyone -  everyone should experience the positive changes it creates in your life.” - Andrea DB

SKA changed my life… I started as an overweight, under confident woman.

“Sudbury Kickboxing Academy has completely changed my life for the better. I started out at the club an overweight, under confident woman who was terrified of stepping foot in a gym with real athletes. The ladies only program really appealed to me, because the class wasn’t full of hard bodied athletes, but real women of all shapes and sizes which put me at ease enough to give it a try. I’m so happy I did, because the experience was overwhelmingly positive. Now I actually enjoy partnering up with men in the kickboxing program because I can hold pads and hit pads as they do. - Angela R, competitive team member

A message from Dawn...

Five years ago I started a Women's Only Kickboxing program, Onna Bugeisha, with the goal of sharing my love for martial arts. For inspiring people to see their potential, to meet their fitness goals, and to help them grow as human beings. From starting with a group of 18 women to growing to Sudbury Kickboxing Academy, here we are now.

My martial arts experience is vast, covering many different arts, and has reached the world stage on numerous occasions. Much of my pride comes from my students. I trained numerous athletes to compete both provincially and nationally in kickboxing and muaythai. In October 2018, I sent two athletes to MTO Nationals with Danielle Gelinas bringing home bronze and Ryan Labranche winning gold to become the National Muaythai Champ.

But joining Sudbury Kickboxing Academy doesn't mean becoming a fighter. I believe that you don't have to ever step in a ring to train like a fighter. Sudbury Kickboxing Academy means leaving everything you have on these sacred mats. It means teamwork and family.

My dojo changes lives. It impacts people and helps them see their own greatness. "I can't" turns into "I did". Looking back, I had no idea this was the plan for me. Never in a million years would I have thought this is where I would be at today. And.... I'm just getting started.

Thank you universe.
