Distinguished Teaching


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. Adhering to the traditional concepts of Budo, the practitioner is encouraged and assisted in exploring all facets of his or her personality, aiming toward intellectual, moral, and physical development.

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 the karate we teach has been passed down for generations.  Moeller Sensei 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. Moeller Sensei is the author of Karate-Do Foundations, published in 1995.
