Aikido or  "Harmony of life force way";

A modern Japanese martial art developed in the Mid - 20th century
by Ueshiba Morihei  O' Sensei from the Daito Ryu Aikijitsu tradition.

Aikido includes Nage-Waza (Thrwing), Uke-Waza (Falling),
and Osae-Waza (Controlling).
Aikido practioners Utilize Irimi (Entering) and Tai no henka
(Body shifting) to direct the attacker's energy or intention away 
from themselves.

Modern Karate was first demonstrated in Japan in 1922 By Gichin Funakoshi,  founder of  Shotokan karate. How ever the history of  karate goes further back than this to the Ryukyu Islands off the coast of Japan today known as Okinawa. The origins of Okinowa-te are not fully known but it is believed that some of the influnces from this came from China and it's development brought about by the ban of weapons in Okinowa in the 15th century.

Our dojo has been open and operated by Sensei: Thomas Arthur for over 30 years. Now after 40+ years of practice in martial arts, I am going to step down and semi-retire. I am proud to announce that as of 10/26/2023, Sochin Karate Dojo will now be operated by my two oldest sons Thomas Arthur JR and Austin Warren. I feel that both of these men have been an asset to Sochin Karate Dojo, and they are wonderful instructors. As well as teaching Karate, Aikido, and Aikijitsu, they are now training in MMA. I will still be attending the Dojo to assist in training our students. For further information about Sochin Karate Dojo or for more information about Martial Arts classes you can now call Austin Warren at 740-835-6574 or T.J. Arthur at 606-471-8469.
