Odayaka Martial Arts Studio is a teaching school dedicated to the art of Shorei-ryu karatedo which has its roots in the antique Okinawan martial art of Naha-te. We emphasize self-improvement, character development, and believe that anyone can be successful in the study of karate.
The dojo has separate programs for adults and children that focus on fitness, coordination and practical self-defenses. Adult learners can be assured they will receive individualized training designed to help them improve within their body type and physical abilities. No one is too old to train in Okinawan Karate.
The kids program teaches some of the same material that is found in the adult program but utilizes drills and games to teach skills including self-discipline and confidence.
Shorei-ryu as taught at Odayaka Martial Arts consists of kihon waza, kata, bogyu waza, kumite waza and kumite.
Jim Brumbaugh is the head instructor. He has studied karate since 1963 and has been teaching for over 30 years.
Bruce Baird, Carolyn Berg and Lynn Forbes are also fully qualified instructors at Odayaka Martial Arts.
