Bushido Dojo School of
Karate. With a long history rich in tradition, Bushido Dojo is the direct
descendant school of the very first Dojo opened in the Nashville area by
Shihan Cecil T. Patterson. Under the direction of Sensei Jimmy
Edwards ~7th Dan~ Sensei Melvin Brown
~6th Dan~ and Sensei Jeffrey Ford ~5th Dan~, Bushido prides itself on maintaining, practicing, and reinforcing the
value of traditional karate training; for both adults and children.
Emphasizing the importance of self-discipline, honor, courtesy and respect as
the true hallmarks of becoming a karateka, Bushido's Children's Program has
earned accolades over decades, from parents, community organizations and
Nashville Public Schools, making it one of the most successful, acclaimed
programs of its kind in the region.
Known far and wide for its austere,
rigorous and spiritual approach to traditional training, Bushido's Adult
Program continues to attract students from all walks of life, with especially
strong attendance from veteran and newly assigned officers within the
Metropolitan Nashville Police Department.
