Dimitrova Training Academy

Get in shape, build confidence, change your life

Dimitrova Training Academy was founded in 2011 by Shihan Maria Dimitrova of the Dominican Republic. The Dimitrova Dojo operates in 5 locations and in 2020 another branch was opened in Canada. With much guidance from Sensei Maria Dimitrova and a tremendous amount of work, Jenna Scott opened an academy in Campbell River, BC – Canada. The academy is a part of the Shitoryu Karate Canada Association and is a member of Karate BC.


At Dimitrova Training Academy, we stand apart from the crowd. Here are a few of the advantages of our martial arts training that you won’t find elsewhere:

  • Discipline

    Martial arts is built on self-discipline. At Dimitrova Training Academy, you’ll reach your goals, work hard, and learn skills that last a lifetime.
  • Growth

    Martial arts isn’t just about reaching your black belt – it’s the perfect place for self-growth.
  • Self-Control

    When you’re upset, it’s easy to let your emotions run the show. We teach students to practice self-control in difficult situations.
  • Fun

    After a stressful day, martial arts is the ideal way to let loose.


  • We just started with the Dojo and it is a very welcoming atmosphere. Jenna is wonderful with the kids. She encourages them to achieve their best while also having fun.
