We will be posting updates regarding our return!
The only school in Rhode Island with a teacher who was trained in Okinawa, Japan.

Welcome to Kodokai Dojo!

That's me, practicing sword in Okinawa, Japan. I will be your teacher at Kodokai.
As a U.S. Marine I was stationed in the best place in the world for martial arts- Okinawa, Japan. This is where I began a lifetime of learning and sharing proven, practical self-defense skills.  

For the past 40 years I have taught police officers, federal agents, kids, and people just like you. Our classes are safe, fun and non-competitive.
We offer you a friendly supportive environment and authentic martial arts that are very different from what you will find elsewhere. Take a look through our website and contact us if you have questions.

Gudokan Dojo, Okinawa

Kodokai Dojo is the U.S. Representative

of the Gudokan Dojo, Okinawa, Japan.

Takamiyagi sensei operates the Gudokan Dojo in Koza, Okinawa. He has welcomed me and my students many times and has visited our dojo in Rhode Island 6 times.
