| Norman Losier,began his journey in the world of Martial Arts
at the age of 18 in his home province of Ontario, Canada.
His first taste of the martial arts was Shoalin Kung Fu. Since that time, Sensei Norm has studied various styles: Isshin-ryu, Choy Lay Fut, Hindiandi Kung Fu, Iwama and Yoshinkan Budo Aikido, Modern Arnis, Combat Escrima, and Okinawan Kobudo (weapons). However, Isshin Ryu has a special place in Sensei Norm's life, and is the style of karate he teaches at the Hope Yama Dojo.
