Omega Karate-Do Abingdon VA

Omega Karate-Do is the site for Chikubu-Kai Karate-Do, located in Abingdon,Va. A martial arts school for the development of the mind, body and technique.

It is our goal at Omega Karate to instill more than just a physical skill. At the Chikubu-Kai Abingdon Dojo, we provide an environment of training for the mind (no ego, no foul language, no nonsense), for the body (physical training strengthens your best natural defense mechanism) and for technique (a movement without purpose is no movement at all). “I am the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End….” (Rev 22:13) The concept for the term “Omega” is to show, not just something has concluded, but HOW it is concluded. The Bible records these words as Jesus speaking and identifying his eternal existence and that He transcends all of time and eternity. In the practical application of life, it isn’t how you start, but how finish (end). The same applies to martial arts. The Japanese term “ZANSHIN” is defined as “perfect finish”. Whether you are a student, business person, teacher, public servant, stay-at-home mom, community leader, project manager, or any one of dozens of other callings, it is imperative that you complete daily or weekly tasks to the best of your ability. But what about a violent encounter? Is there a difference? NO!! Just as in life, an encounter with someone who wants to harm you is not the time to finish in 2nd place. You don’t start the fight…. But when it does arrive, you finish 1st, you are the one to go home to your family, you cause the violator to regret ever messing with you!!! How is this accomplished? By continual training of the Mind, the Body and Technique. It is a lifestyle!! No matter what you’ve done in life or where you’ve been; no matter your story or history, every person can develop a warrior mindset to finish their life journey with physical, mental and spiritual success. A student once said to his master: You teach me fighting but you talk about peace. How do you reconcile the two?” The master replied: “It is better to be a warrior in a garden than to be a gardener in a war. Live your life in such a way that even Honorable men would envy you. Protecting yourself is self-defense. Protecting others is warriorship. A man once told me… The most important thing every man should know is what he would die for.

It is Your Karate you know… A few days ago I received a telephone call from a long-time friend and student asking if I was ok and well, especially so with all that is going on around the World and here in England during these…

Staying Safe and Training at home

[03/30/20]   Good afternoon! It's been another busy day in the business world as we confront the issues of this virus. As many of you have seen, the governor's press conference today, March 30th, found us with a new executive order that is now a directive to stay in with only certain exceptions. Obviously, will not be having karate class tonight. I would encourage you to do training at home to maintain your physical and mental fitness. We will train together again soon. My prayers are with you that you stay safe and healthy!

[03/23/20]   Hey folks.... Happy Monday! As much as I hate to.... We will dismiss class tonight due to the Governor's regulation of the number of people in a gym facility.

As we see the number of COVID-19 cases increasing and getting closer to our area, it is more imperative to follow guidelines and maintain a healthy standard. I will evaluate the situation for next week's class... Stay safe...stay healthy. Train at home. No time to give up!

Due to the Covid-19 virus concerns, as well as other circumstances due to security, there will be no class tonight, March 16, 2020. I will advise later for next week's class. Stay safe and healthy - follow good hygiene practices! Continue to train! - Sensei Rex

[01/14/20]   From Rōnin Tactics:

Teachings of a Rōnin (Warrior; Samurai)

“The Cycle”
- In time the grip on your weapon will not be as strong. The strike to your enemy is not as lethal. Your body will weaken. Your vision will fade and the mind will not be as sharp. This is the “Cycle” and it is necessary… for we cannot always be the ones the world calls on. There will be a next breed of young warriors and I will welcome them. For the chosen ones… you will suffer with loneness, pain, cold, hunger… you will be injured time and time again… you will watch your fellow brothers die as you continue on your path… Do not worry young ones… for you are the chosen ones and my brothers and I will strengthen your body and sharpen your mind. We will walk the path together and we will tell you our tale of tales through the teachings until the time when the path ends for us. This is a warrior “Cycle” and this is necessary… #warriorclass #godandcountry🇺🇸 #heavenandearth #TheWay #budo #bushido #journeyofathousandmiles👣 #americanronin🇺🇸 #ronintactics

Class tonight! 7pm! Let's make it happen!!

The mother saw her daughter murdered... in Pigeon Forge... Yes, a place most all of us have been.

While we don't know all the details of the relationship between the attacker and the victim, this wasn't a stranger vs. stranger encounter...

But he contemplated the murder for several days...

Evil exists.

While nothing can bring her back, we mourn the loss of life.

Yet, we must remain ever vigilant to train, to be proactive, to maintain a sense of awareness, to seek help from resources (law enforcement, etc), to protect those who can't protect themselves...

[01/08/20]   This is important helpful information (Thanks, Monica Hicks, for sharing!)

International tensions are high right now. Iran has called on its sleeper cells around the world to hold retaliatory attacks against the US.

Things to remember at times like these:

- Keep your heads up and out of your phones while you're in public.

- Pay attention to your surroundings and make mental note of the locations of the nearest exits.

- Have no less than half a tank of gas in your vehicle at all times.

- Make sure your phone is charged when going out.

- For those willing and able to, carry your gun. Carry it concealed. Carry additional magazines.

- Have a small medical kit handy. Tourniquet, bandages, etc. A quick YouTube search will have you set up cheaply and quickly.

- Have a flashlight on you. Have a spare in your vehicle. In case of an attack in an enclosed building, lights going out causes confusion, makes you lose track of the people with you and can make a bad situation 10x worse. A simple, reliable flashlight can help alleviate these issues.

- Always carry a sturdy, lockable knife. It has many more uses than cutting cheesecake.

- Avoid stupid places, with stupid people, doing stupid things. This applies to anytime, not just during times of heightened security.

- Trust your instincts. If your spidey-senses are tingly while you are out, then that is your body sensing danger of some type. Intuition is telling you that something nearby wants to hurt you and your family, and go be somewhere else.

- If something doesn't look right, it probably isn't.

- Don't let someone else's Selective Ignorance deter you from being Properly Prepared to Provide Protection to your People.

I say these reminders not to scare the friends and family that read this but to make sure they are aware of the clear and present dangers that exist right here and now.

Bad people are intent on doing bad things to Americans. They do not care if you have kids, they don't care how you vote, and they don't care what church you attend. They care that you are an American, and they want to hurt as many Americans as possible.

They are not going to only target military bases stateside. They will go after and attack civilians. They will attack women and children specifically. This is what they do. This is why they are called "terrorists". Their goal is to create enough fear that others voluntarily bend to their will. Know that upfront and don't sugar-coat that fact.

Our country has been dealing with this issue for two decades, and honestly, we as a society have become lax recently to the possibility of attacks specifically from terrorists. Most of us have been more worried about the mentally unstable school-shooter-types that have filled the news this past couple of years. That has seemed the more plausible and likely threat. That is no longer the case. Enemies are actively planning to hurt Americans, on American soil.

Act accordingly.

I beg to differ... To earn a black belt means you earn the right to begin to learn the art.


What does martial arts training and Plexus have in common?

Both are a lifestyle choice!!
Both help mind and body!!
Both are beneficial to your everyday life!!

PM Sensei Rex Carter for more information on classes and Plexus information!!


"In the old days we trained Karate as a martial art, but now they train Karate as a gymnastic sport. I think we must avoid treating Karate as a sport – it must be a martial art at all times! Your fingers and the tips of your toes must be like arrows, your arms must be like iron. You have to think that if you kick, you try to kick the enemy dead. If you punch, you must thrust to kill. If you strike, then you strike to kill the enemy. This is the spirit you need in order to progress in your training.” –
Choshin Chibana (founder of Kobayashi Shorin-ryu Karate)
