About Your Shihan

Welcome to the World Oyama Dojo, home to Shihan ("Master") Mitsugu Sakai, an Eighth Degree Black Belt and certified instructor in the USA OYAMA division of the esteemed World Oyama Karate Organization.

With over four decades dedicated to the art of karate, Shihan Sakai's journey began as an "Uchi-deshi," a special apprenticeship under the guidance of the World Oyama Karate founder, Soshu Shigeru Oyama.

A three-time World Oyama Full Contact Champion and seasoned tournament competitor, Shihan Sakai excels in both full-contact and point system fighting matches, consistently securing victory. His expertise extends to "kata" competitions, where he has claimed numerous first-place titles.

Shihan Sakai is not only a skilled competitor but also a proficient instructor in martial arts weapons such as nunchaku, tonfa, bo, and sai. His teaching philosophy centers on fostering respect, patience, and appreciation in students, empowering them with self-discipline, self-esteem, and confidence as they navigate this dynamic martial arts style.

Shihan Sakai places a strong emphasis on the fundamentals ("kihon"), considering them the cornerstone for mastering the intricate movements of kata and "kumite" (fighting).
