Martial Paths travels to schools, gymnasiums, community centres, places of business or even your own home to instruct in a variety of traditional and modern Martial Arts. The system of Martial Arts on offer includes Karate, Jiu-Jitsu, Kickboxing, Tai Chi Chuan, Lost Track Kung Fu, Hsing-I Chuan, I-Chuan and the holistic practices of Chi Kung.
The name Martial Paths is meant to reflect the variety of training Sensei James Werden has had over the span of 13 years. A 2nd degree black belt in both Karate and Jiu-Jitsu certified through the Snow Tiger Martial Arts Association and the Canadian Jiu-Jitsu Council, Sensei Jim has also trained in Kickboxing, “Lost Track” Kung Fu, Tai Chi, Hsing-I Chuan, I-Chuan and Chi Kung.
In 2012, he began teaching the kid’s class with a partner at Elite Martial Arts Centre in Belleville, ON. By 2015, Sensei Lynn Dafoe promoted Sensei Jim to lead instructor of the kid’s classes at EMAC. Sensei Jim immediately implemented discussions and lessons about leadership, strategy, self-awareness and meditation learned from a multiplicity of instructors.
