The Armstrong Dojo was started in 1980 by Sempai Jeff Fast and Sempai Lyle McWilliam. It was turned over to Sensei Larry Robinson in 1981 and he has been the head instructor since this time. We purchased an old church in 2002 and renovated it into a dojo where we currently hold all our classes. The Armstrong Dojo hosts the annual IKOKC Summer Camp and a Black Belt Brown Belt camp each year.
Sensei Robinson started his training in 1978 under Sempai McWilliam in Vernon, B.C. In 1982 he met Shihans Don and Stuart Corrigal and started training under them on a regular basis. He has been a supporter of the IKOKC since it was formed and spent many years on the board of directors. Sensei Robinson has trained under a large number of the senior instructors within the IKO, including Shihan Bobby Lowe, Kancho Matsui, Shihan Gorai, Shihan Andre Gilbert, Shihan Nick Cujic to name a few. He traveled to Hawaii many times to train with Shihan Bobby Lowe at his dojo and the many seminars that he organized. He has been to the European Summer Camp in Papendal as both a student and instructor.
He continues to train and teach at his dojo in Armstrong and support the IKO and the IKOKC
