Grandmaster Seikichi Odo

Thanks Michele for the beautiful defensive techniques by the Grandmaster Seikichi Odo. The techniques are effective against big and strong attacker so it could be used in some women self-defense program.

Sensei: Thank you for your comments.

I was excited to find the video of Master Odo on YouTube. There are not many videos of Master Odo available.

I was fortunate to attend several training events where Master Odo was the guest instructor.

Some good self defense techniques on display there. Very similar to what I do myself in my own training.

Pretty lethal for such a small man!

Urban Samurai: Thank you for visiting. The best part is that the techniques are right out of kata.

During training events, I remember watching in awe when Master Odo demonstrate kobudo kata. You could tell that he loved karate and wanted to share his knowledge. Master Odo died in 2002 at the age of seventy-five.
