    Default Searching for dojo


    I'm currently stationed on Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort, South Carolina, and I was wondering if anyone knew of any traditional karate-do places to train. I guess the two closest big cities would be Savannah, GA and Charleston, SC. I've tried doing searches on google, but seeing as how "mainstream" karate has become nowadays, the searches are broad and difficult to narrow down sometimes. I was hoping that someone here would make my search easier.

    Thank you for your time!

    Default Dojo?

    Where'd you train, Sir?

    There are TWO traditional, Okinawan-style dojos near Savannah:

    Lake Mayer Shorin-Ryu -- Tue / Thu, 6-9pm -- a bunch of guys who trained in Shorin-Ryu, and who get together and teach whomever stops by, and is willing to sweat / train.

    Yawn's Professional Karate and Fitness Center, Rincon, GA -- nightly -- a Godan in Chito-Ryu (Chitose lineage), who ONLY trains military / cops, but his kids train civilians in TKD, Chito-Ryu, and MMA.

    If you call me, maybe WE can get together some time, as I work in Estill, SC, and live near Savannah, GA. I study Matsumura-Seito Shorin-Ryu.
