You won't find a better Karate instructor than Sensei Roberto, but more importantly, you won't find a more fun, welcoming and focused group of students than at Virginia Okinawan Karate Dojo. I've been a student of Sensei Roberto for many years and am constantly amazed by the depth of instruction and learning that he provides in an atmosphere that encourages friendship and camaraderie. Every time I think that I've mastered something new, another facet of martial arts is revealed. I suspect Sensei Roberto continues to learn too, but at a stratospheric level. At any rate, he brings his knowledge down to earth. By the way, Okinawan karate is not an athletic activity limited to the young. Like a Bonsai tree, this style of karate lets us find new pathways for physical and intellectual growth, even as we age.

Sensei Roberto and the other teachers are very knowledgeable and patient. I love the exercise, the mental discipline, and it's fun to learn something new every time you step on the mat. In addition to the instructors, the the members are always helping each other improve, too. I wish I had started studying Karate in this dojo sooner.

Adult classes are super enjoyable and informative, whether you are starting from scratch or transitioning from a different style. Everyone is welcoming and constructive, with plenty of learning resources, and the dojo is flexible in terms of your availability as well as pace due to your level/time/injury/etc. I've been a student here for roughly 5 months, and look forward to going to each class.
