    I have attended and seen a lot of training. However, Sensei Ader is by far the best instructor I have seen or trained under, both in a dojo and out. He possesses the unique qualities of a great teacher using education, inspiration, and devotion to student’s growth as his hallmarks. As a teacher he is doer, personally instructing all students at all levels. As a karate man his skills are superior however his humility is unparalleled. Anyone that has the fortunate opportunity to train under Sensei Ader will be a better person mentally and physically for the rest of their life from the lessons learned from him. You are missing a rare opportunity working with Sensei Ader. What are you waiting for?

    – Semper Fi,  James Dove

    I have been training in Karate for approximately 4 1/2 years now and I look forward to every training session. Before I first started Karate I had played a lot of different kinds of sports, soccer, ice hockey and several others. I had a certain number of sports injuries from the past. After starting Karate, my back pain and the other injuries began to feel better and better. The flexibility training and the body toughening, along with all the movements we perform through doing Kata and sparring really make me feel great. I also really like doing all the weapons training. I no longer have any back pain and am continuing to sculpt my body into a solid form that really makes me feel good. Karate is great for mind, body and spirit. I would recommend Karate training to anyone who is serious about wanting to learn self defense, and who wants to improve their fitness, on a physical, emotional and spiritual level.

    Sensei Ader and his dojo are second-to-none. Unlike most of the belt-factories you’ll find in modern-day martial arts facilities, you’ll not only develop top-quality techniques with superior form here, you’ll benefit from Jeff’s knowledge and uncompromising character, and likely come away with some life-long relationships. I highly recommend you check out this dojo, based on our four-and-a-half years of experience with our daughter thus far.

    – Brian Willette

    HOW TO BUILD A MARTIAL ARTS STUDIO FOR YOUR KIDS TO PRACTICE AT HOME

    Life gets busy, and it’s not always possible to make it to your kids’ martial arts classes each week. You may also be wondering what to do if your children’s studio is closed during the COVID-19 pandemic. One of the best solutions is to allow your kids to hone their skills at home with their own practice studio. Here’s how to set up your own martial arts studio!

    About Us

    We are professional, experienced martial artists and instructors many of whom hold graduate academic degrees and advanced martial arts certification.

    What do we teach?

    We teach a traditional form of Karate, Matsumura Seito, that has been in existence for more than 200 years. The concepts and techniques that we teach and train in are as valid today as they were when they first came into existence. The curriculum is designed to be practical and functional and yet develop the character traits we all aspire to.

    Why do we train?

    We teach and train in the traditional arts because we understand the value of today's society. The lessons that we learn in the dojo enable us to become more physically fit, emotionally balanced and intellectually aware and alert. We also are propagating an art that is in danger of extinction unless we share its benefits and secrets with the modern world.

    What can we do for you and your family?

    We can help you to become more self-assured, more focused, more fit, more disciplined and more emotionally balanced. Participants in our programs have become more successful in school, career and family relationships. You will learn to accept challenges and to set and achieve goals that were once out of reach. Our classes, seminars and private lessons are designed to help you adapt to the threats, challenges and opportunities that exist in our world today. Don’t wait. Get involved today and enjoy the positive changes that take place as you experience the finest in Martial arts training at the All Okinawa Karate and Kobudo Dojo. Call or email TODAY!

    Nabe Matsumura

    Nabe Matsumura

    NABE MATSUMURA brought the old Shorin-ryu secrets into the modern age. His name does not appear in many karate lineage charts According to Hohan Soken (1889-1982), the purest teaching of Matsumura’s Shorin Ryu was carried on by Matsumura Nabe (c.1860-1930). He received training in the family style of Matsumura Shorin Ryu which also included the secret techniques of the white crane. The white crane system was reputed to be a secret family style that was only taught to immediate family members. In his later years, Nabe Matsumura was referred to as Nabe Tanme or “old man” Nabe. He was known to be a stern and disciplined teacher. He had only one student, Hohan Soken. It is said he was one of the top karate men of his time. He passed on his menkyo kaiden to his nephew, SOKEN HOHAN
