Japanese Sword

Palace Hand


The only school in Rhode Island with a teacher who was trained in Okinawa, Japan.

Welcome to Kodokai Dojo!

That's me, 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.  
We offer you a friendly supportive environment and martial arts that are very different from the things you will find elsewhere. Take a look through our website. If you are looking for fitness, self-protection skills, confidence or a way to become grounded, you have found your school!

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.


Due to the Corona Virus we have moved our classes outdoors.

Teaching authentic martial arts in northern Rhode island for 40 years!

Many schools rely upon gimmicks, payment contracts and play time to keep students enrolled. Often, adults and six-year-olds share the same classes with neither developing effective skills. 
We, instead, focus on in-depth instruction emphasizing the development of functional skills, a fit body, calm mind and strong spirit.

No contracts - No tournaments - No birthday parties - No point sparring

No movie nights- No board breaking- No dodge ball- No demo team

No children with black belts

Instead, you will learn martial arts.
