100% Real Martial Arts
At Barton's, we teach authentic martial arts in the true traditional method of the Oriental Masters. We take pride in offering a wide range of quality classes for every age and fitness level. Our goal is to teach the skills of martial arts and in the process instill our students, young and old, with greater confidence, self-esteem, respect and self-discipline.
Barton's Martial Arts has been serving Collingwood and Area since 1988 and we are the most qualified instructors in the area.
When you come into our dojo, you need to set your mental clock back many many years!
We do things differently - we are not a business that believes the customer is always right, we do not believe in doing things to keep parents and students happy. Think of our dojo (school) as almost a "lifestyle camp".
We expect extreme politeness and manners rarely seen anymore, students are to show up to class early.
Students help clean the dojo (training area) and are expected to always act as ladies and gentlemen-keeping in mind that they represent not only our school but the martial arts as a whole.
Our goal is to teach respect and manners first and technique second.
