Dominique Picard, 3rd Dan

Dominique started her training at Tallack Dojo in September of 2009. She currently holds the rank of first Degree Black Belt (Shodan) in Karate and first degree Black Sash in Kung-Fu. She was the first student of Tallack Dojo to earn both ranks during the same test at the same time in June of 2014.

She is currently instructing the Little Dragons, 6-8, and 9-12 Year Old Beginner Karate Programs. Along with her receptionist duties, she teaches introductory classes to new students and at various Karate Kids schools throughout the city of Kingston and area.

Her diligent training in Karate, Kung-Fu, Kobudo, and Jujutsu has heightened her abilities as a martial artist to enable her to win two grand championship trophies (2012 & 2013) at the annual Octoberfest Tournament hosted by Silent Tiger Martial Arts in Bowmanville, Ontario.

In early 2019, Dominique was officially certified under the Okinawa Kobudo Doushi Rensei-kai (OKDR) as 1st Degree Black Belt in Matayoshi Okinawan Kobudo.
