After spending a year and a half at OKDA, I must say that my daughter and I have found more than a martial arts school, but our home away from home. I initially decided to take up karate for the 2 reasons any mother would want to and that

I have been a karate ka or student of Renshi Michael Norvell since 1997 or since I was 12. I am now 27, and my resilience and mental constitution are a reflection of the years I have spent training with him and many of my old friends.

This dojo is by far one of the best schools in St Louis. From the workouts and the many values taught while training. One thing I can say is that you will earn every belt you receive from this school and you will have fun doing it too.

If you are a parent who needs to teach your children discipline, beware of this academy. While martial arts is being taught and you can find some wonderful people, Michael Norvell is the owner and his is ignorant and verbally abusive. I

This is the best place to work out and learn karate. I go there 3 times a week and I'm in shape and I feel great. I used to be scared to go places alone, but now I know a lot of self-defense techniques and I am not afraid to go anywhere. It's great for women and kids.

Okinawan Karate-Do Academy (OKDA) is the best place to learn traditional karate in St. Louis. The cirriculum is well-rounded and includes classes in self-defense, forms, point sparring, and weapons. A lot of schools I've visited don't give instruction in all of these areas. The forms and weapons practiced at this dojo have been handed down from the originators of the karate in Okinawa. Here you can practice karate the way it was intended. There are lots of instructors, daytime and evening classes, and lots of good students in the class. The instructors are friendly and knowlegeable. Give them a call or stop by if you're interested in classes. You can also visit the website: www.okdaonline dot com
