About Us

WKU is a martial arts, fitness and physical literacy organization that supports skill development and knowledge transfer of martial arts. WKU hosts events, workshops and seminars, and provides scholarships, learning tools, training and classes in communities across the country. These may include local, national, and international opportunities.

Our organization aims to help marginalized martial artists who may otherwise not receive opportunities to participate in martial arts or competitions while simultaneously fostering bonds with the Calgary community. WKU is a community-focused group that aims to improve martial arts for all people while getting the community involved in the sport, the tourism aspects, and the other benefits provided by large martial arts groups and tournaments.

Meet Our Sponsors

WKU is building partnerships with community organizations, clubs, and local businesses to bring as many Canadians as possible into martial arts. WKU is committed to building partnerships to make our events a reality that benefits all of our nation.
