Welcome to Odayaka Martial Arts

outsideOdayaka 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. Our programs emphasize fitness, self-improvement and character development, not only for children and teens, but for adults of any age. We believe the study of karate can be beneficial to everyone.
