Emphasizing the development of self and technique, not competition
All of the martial arts at Atlanta’s Traditional Okinawan Karate-do Dojo are taught in an atmosphere of cooperation and mutual respect. The goal is to strengthen the individual in all aspects of development. In keeping with the traditional concepts of Budo, the practitioner is encouraged and assisted in developing all facets of his or her personality, including intellectual, moral, and physical aspects.
We do not teach sport karate. The Okinawans developed these systems hundreds of years ago, when unarmed techniques were the only means of self-defense, and they have been passed down for generations. Sensei Moeller also incorporates principles and drills from his study of T’ai Chi Ch’uan, Hung Gar Kung Fu and Aikido for more than twenty years.
Celebrating 25 Years
On April 9, 2012, Atlanta’s Traditional Okinawan Karate-do Dojo celebrated its 25th anniversary. The occasion was commemorated with a special two-day seminar taught by guest instructor Jay Sandweiss Shihan, Moeller Sensei’s teacher from Ann Arbor, Michigan.
