About JKS Martial Arts

JKS was founded in 1987. The founder, James Monette, has been training since 1968. James Monette began teaching martial arts in 1982 and decided to open a full-time school in 1990. Since then, JKS has grown into the largest and most respected martial arts school on the West Island, teaching by far one of the most effective self-defense martial arts in the world, as well as one of the top teams in Canada in boxing, kickboxing, BJJ, and MMA.


This is the question that every instructor at JKS asks themselves every day. Our willingness to help you in whatever way we can is what motivates us.

Whether you need help with fitness, stress reduction, confidence building, competition, self-defense, bullying prevention, or just want to have something fun to do, we are here for you.

Headed by James Monette, one of the most experienced coaches in Quebec, every member of the JKS staff cares about giving you the best quality, most fun instruction - no matter the class.

JKS also offers more classes than any other martial arts school in Quebec. Check the schedule to see if there is a class for you.

If you have any questions, just call or email and we will be happy to help.

Thank you,
James Monette
