O.B.I Karate school has focused only on quality martial art training that develops the mind, body & spirit. This has been our goal for the last 50 years.
Our adult classes are 90 minutes long, that is more than doubled what most schools do!
Is your goal to learn to effectively defend yourself should the need arise? We train in the manner of ancient Pechin, Okinawan Samurai who protected the King and other officials. You will learn discipline, self control. While others claim the same they are only interested in selling rank and keeping things easy.
Sensei Noel Smith has studied Okinawan Shorin-ryu under Sensei Shuguro Nakazato since the early 1960's and is the Senior Kyoshi in North America holding the rank of 8th Dan. As a direct student of Sensei Nakazato he has insight and knowledge regarding the teachings and concepts that others have lost. As a student of O.B.I Karate School you will be learning from one of the top instructors in the United States.
