Canuck Place Children’s Hospice
Canuck Place Children’s Hospice first opened its doors in November 1995, to become North America’s first free-standing children’s hospice. They responded to the need for a hospice created specifically for children. Today Canuck Place Children’s Hospice has two provincial locations in Vancouver and Abbotsford to deliver Canuck Place care which includes medical respite, pain and symptom management, art, music, and recreation therapy, end-of-life care, and grief, loss, and bereavement counselling. All at no cost to families.
Recognized internationally as leaders in the field of pediatric palliative care, the need for children’s palliative care services has grown exponentially over the years. Thanks to the dedication of staff and volunteers, and the extended team of corporate, community and government partners, Canuck Place Children’s Hospice is able to make a difference in the lives of more children and families in need throughout BC. Homelife Benchmark Realty Corp is proud to be one of those community partners.

Established by Paul Li in 1980, Seikido is a way of developing individuals through martial arts. It combines the most practical hard and soft martial arts systems with a unique philosophy, which together create an education system aimed at cultivating one’s potential. The Seikido style is traditional in its philosophy, structure and etiquette, yet contemporary in its mentality and application of martial arts techniques.
- Eastern and Western Striking and Blocking techniques
- Falling, Rolling and Tumbling techniques
- Self-Defense tactics against Unarmed and Armed attacks
- Joint Articulation, Restraining, Throwing and Ground Fighting
- Traditional and Contemporary Weapons Training
Seikido is not a martial “sport” – training and techniques prepare students for real-life situations.
Why Study Seikido?
Through practicing the physical aspects of Seikido, one gains skill and confidence. Through studying the philosophy, one learns how to improve character. The focus of Seikido is placed on personal growth and to apply what is learned to help and protect oneself and loved ones.
The practice of Seikido demands its students to understand the importance and joy of cooperating and working with, and helping others. Students are taught through training that cooperating with others is instrumental to success in all aspects of their lives.
The words “Seiki” and “Do” put together can be translated to mean “way of the true and correct spirit.” As any person is capable of growing in any direction, Seikido aims to nurture its students through training to live with a sense of righteousness, justice, sincerity, and courage. These are integral principles necessary in creating strong leaders with great character and way of thinking.
With nearly 40 years of history, the Seikido Martial Arts Federation is proud to exemplify excellence in a true martial arts education. http://www.seikidofederation.com/
