The Oriental Karate & Kobudo Club focuses on bringing Martial Arts to improve the health and fitness of their students in a scientific, safe, and fun environment. Since its inception in 1987, it has conquered the area of Martial Arts in Abu Dhabi by bringing in professional Instructors, well-maintained Dojos (Training Areas) and a reputation to bring the best performance out of its students.
9 Locations in Abu Dhabi Oriental club has 9 sophisticated training centers in Abu Dhabi with more than 1500 active students. More than 24000 students have been trained under the club. The club conducts campus and contract classes running in and around Abu Dhabi. We also provide transportation for the students.
Children’s Karate Classes We conduct the classes twice a week. Our syllabuses are tailored to suit beginners as well as serious tournament trainers. Many additional skills like somersault, tumbling, gymnastic stretching, front & back midair rolls, and many special skills are included in the syllabus to motivate the students in all kinds of sports besides karate. We also conduct special classes on Tuesdays.
Adult’s Karate Classes for male and female We conduct separate classes for adults twice a week. The bane of an implacable body of an adult will be mitigated in the executive classes conducted by the club. Many Yoga exercises are included in the training sessions, which may help one to keep up a relaxed lifestyle.
Kobudo Classes We conduct the classes once a week. Kobudo is an ancient martial art that originated in Okinawa (Japan), the place known as the Cradle of Martial Arts. It is taught in very few countries in the world due to the unavailability of proficient instructors. We are proud to have our chief instructor, Ali Mohammed Kyoshi, a weapon expert and one of the few masters in the world who holds a 7th Degree Black Belt in Kobudo. We teach weapons like BO (Long Staff), Nunchako (the most useful handheld weapon in the world), Sai (an ancient traditional weapon), Tonfa (the weapon which police forces use in most developed countries) Kama, Chux, Sanchako, etc., which will truly challenge one’s martial arts abilities.
