DOUVRIS Ottawa-East is owned and operated by Sensei Subhadra Shrestha, karate World Champion, and Master Senseis John and Peter Douvris, founders of Douvris Martial Arts. Together, the Douvris Brothers have been sharing their passion for karate with their Ottawa community since opening their first Douvris location in 1984. Sensei Subhadra was part of the Nepali National Karate team before moving to Canada and competing for Canadian National and International teams. Douvris programs, methods, and standards have been designed, tested, and proven over 30 years. Our focus is on helping our members build confidence, strength, and a positive sense of physical and mental well-being.
