About Us

Midori Ishi Kai Martial Arts is located in the heart of Northern Ontario, in a community called Greenstone. The club has been operating since 1980. Originally, it was named Geraldton Karate Club, where Hanshi Fred Simioniatis and Sensei Roger Lemieux taught.


Today, the club serves two locations, Geraldton and Longlac. Individuals of all skill levels come here to practice traditional karate under the supervision of experienced Shotokan instructors.

In 2008, Sensei Lynnea Zuefle received the privilege of operating the club under the Northern Karate Federation with President Hanshi Fred Simioniatis (who now resides in Thunder Bay).


Since then, Sensei Lynnea has been operating a well-rounded club which saw four of her students earn their black belts. They have assisted in running the club to its highest

potential, taking the club to many regional, provincial, national and world competitions.

The club is highly recognized and has earned countless rewards. The club’s name was changed in June 2017 to incorporate the amalgamation of Greenstone Midori Ishi Kai, which simply means “Greenstone strong.” We have since incorporated the martial arts into the different styles that we welcome in the club.
