In Canada, the martial art community is comprised of a diverse group of martial art styles, systems, schools, instructors, and students. You can usually find a martial art instructor in communities with a population of ten thousand or more. Depending on your interest, it may prove challenging to find exactly what you’re looking for in smaller communities. Those living in larger communities will certainly have a much broader selection of instructors to choose from. Should you live in a remote area, a number of Canadian martial artists have written books, which can be purchased in stores or online. If you have internet access, there’s also the option of enrolling in online courses.
