Shorin-Ryu Karate of Virginia

Virginia Shorin-ryu Karate & Martial art school


Shorin-ryu Karate VirginiaO.B.I Karate School of Virginia, located in Virginia Beach, is the premier Shorin-ryu Karate Dojo in Hampton roads.  Our focus has always been to teach Okinawan Shorin-ryu in the manner it was intended. We have a vigorous curriculum that is designed to develop coordination, speed, focus and because we are a traditional dojo respect and courtesy are an important part of what we do as they help develop respect for self and others.

Shorin-ryu is a very effective system for self defense particularly when many are learning MMA style fighting and using it on the street.

Kyoshi Noel Smith , 8th Dan, has been training exclusively in Shorin-ryu, also known as Kobayashi-te, under Sensei Shugoro Nakazato since the 60's after extensive training in Okinawa he opened O.B.I Karate School of Virginia and we have been teaching Shorin-ryu in original way ever since. 

We are located at 5465 Virginia Beach Blvd. Virginia Beach, Va. 23462 next to Gateway Baptist Church and behind the Green Spa massage. Our hours of opperation are Mon, Weds and Friday 6:00p to 8:00pm
