Hello & Welcome to my personal Blog.

Dedicated to Everything Martial Arts


My name is Adam Carter thank you for visiting my Blog. I am passionate about the Martial Arts and the Traditional Karate of Okinawa. My goal is to help people discover a deeper understanding of their Karate, regardless of style or experience.

I have been studying, training and practicing karate for almost 50 years, and teaching since 1985. Within this Blog I try to publish content as often as I can, while also teaching karate at the Shuri Dojo in the Chicago area of Illinois. I’m passionate about helping people improve their karate. Let me know if there is anything that I can help you with.

We follow the older Okinawan tradition of training from a small home based dojo. What we lack in size, we make up in quality and the sincerity of our training. Originally established in the UK in 1986, we teach traditional Okinawan karate, with the emphasis on self-protection, the self-defense applications contained within traditional “kata” (forms), with good discipline, etiquette and much more.

Our  dojo is a unique part of a traditional lineage that began on Okinawa and stretches back many generations.  We are dedicated to the preservation of classical karate and the cultural traditions and heritage we have been entrusted with for the next generation of students.

I hope you enjoy your visit to my blog. Please leave a comment on any of the posts.

Thanks again for visiting.
