Dojo Training

Whether you are a novice to Karate and would like to have beginner type training sessions in the birthplace of Karate, or an expert Karateka who would like to gain more experience from an Okinawan Grand Master, we are able to offer you training sessions in the Okinawan Karate styles Goju-ryu, Uechi-ryu, Shorin-ryu, and Ryukyu Kobudo. It is possible for us to offer also Shito-ryu training sessions.

Depending on the dojo, some sessions could be from Monday to Friday, while some could be on every other weekday. Most dojos are closed on Sundays and on National holidays. Training hours could be any 2-hour frames between 6pm and 10pm.

Orientation

Before any training session, we conduct a short orientation at our office at least a day before the scheduled training. We will cover the training schedule, basic dos and don’ts of a traditional Okinawan dojo, and any other related contents.

We will also give background information on the sensei who will be conducting the training session. Overall the orientation will take from 30-45 minutes.

Original Ageshio Japan Certificate

After taking 2 or more training sessions, we will present each participant with a training completion certificate signed by the Grand Master of that training. If more than one training is taken with the same Grand Master, then the certificate will be presented at the end of the final training session.
