A Message from Sensei

With a resume of combined martial arts training totalling 130 years, the three principal Instructors at our Karate dojo led by Sensei Dan O’Brien, still enthusiastically upgrade and maintain our knowledge of our Okinawan art through seminars, and research in order to provide the best and most accurate training for our dojo community and students.  We provide guidance in Okinawan katas and Kobudo, Self Defence, meditation and fitness and can provide a seminar on request.
