About me

Virginia Beach City Karate,Shorin-ryu Karate,Shorinkan Karate,Self Defense, Karate, KobudoMy name is Sensei Noel Smith.  I began my martial arts training over 50 years ago while stations in Okinawa, I began training under Shugoro Nakazato Sensei and have been a loyal and devoted student ever since.  

We not only a member dojo of the Shorin-ryu Shorinkan assocation,we are also the first Dojo to have joined the association when Sensei Nakazato started it in the early 70's.  

My dojo has, and shall always, remain true to the spirt of Shorin-ryu as Sense Shugoro Nakazato taught it to me.  My students have heard me many times utter the words "We teach Karate as it was intended to be taught."  I lived on the island of Okinawa for years studying and training with Sensei day and night, what I learned from him about Karate, the way of karate, the life of a karate man and what the katas are about I teach to my students and to those who wish to learn.
