Florida Seidokan Dojo a Traditional Okinawan Karate School in tampa Bay
Okinawa Seidokan is a well rounded martial art consisting of kicking, punching, and blocking techniques of karate, the throwing and joint-locking techniques of Aiki-jujutsu (Toide) and the traditional weaponry of Okinawa (Kobudo - i.e. the Bo, Sai, Tonfa, and Kama).
At Florida Seidokan Dojo, our main focus is kata and kata bunkai (analysis and disassembly of kata for personal self-defense applications). Seidokan Karate students immediately begin to become stronger from the inside out from day one in kata training; developing not just their muscles, but their ability to focus as well.
It is an art well suited for men and women who have a desire to learn and preserve a tradition, approach self defense from a martial science perspective, and increase self-confidence, concentration and coordination.
