Meet the Instructors


Grand Master Don Rodrigues began his Martial Arts training in 1967 under the late Grand Master Nick Cerio. He has also studied and has been certified under the late Grand Master Ed Parker and by Grand Master George Pesare.


He is the founder and President of the Don Rodrigues Karate Academy and the Oki-Ryu Kenpo system (since 1982) and currently holds the rank of 10th Degree Black Belt. Mr. Rodrigues was President of WAKO-USA (1991-2015), President of the Board of Directors of American Kenpo International and the Vice President of KRANE Ratings Inc. (New England’s premier Sport Karate ratings service).


He is the publisher / author of “Finding the Funds” (marketing package), co-publisher of KRANE Ratings International magazine and was featured on the 1st edition of Action Martial Arts trading cards. Mr. Rodrigues has appeared in many magazines, national and international, including the cover of several National Martial Art publications.

Mr. Rodrigues enjoys teaching, coaching and promoting and is top-notch in all three categories! As an instructor, he has taught many World Champions and helped over 200 people reach their goal of Black Belt. His school is one of the best - and one of the largest - on the East Coast.


As a coach, Mr. Rodrigues is noted as the best in the world. He has been coaching the best sport Karate team in the world, Team Paul Mitchell, for over 29 years. He is also the coach of the WAKO-USA 1991-2015. He has trained and coached over 200 competitors to over 300 world titles since 1985.


In 2001, he was inducted into the Black Belt Magazine’s Hall of Fame as “Coach of the Year”.


In 1997, he was awarded “Coach of the Year” by KRANE International and in 1995 by Inside Kung Fu Magazine’s Hall of Fame award. He has coached Team Paul Mitchell and the WAKO-USA Team all over the World.


In 1998, he coached the US Sanshou Kickboxing Team in Beijing, China.


As a promoter, he started promoting the Ocean State Grand Nationals 37 years ago and it has grown to one of the top 10 tournaments in North America. He also co-promoted the 9th WAKO World Championships in Atlantic City, NJ in 1993 and several nationally televised kickboxing events.


He was the promotional director for the World Cup of Martial Arts, held in 1995 at Foxwoods Casino. From 1995 to present, Mr. Rodrigues has helped raise over $250,000 for Chuck Norris’ Kick Drugs Out of America / Kickstart program.


In 2010, he co-produced the Action Martial Arts film “Champions of the Deep.” Mr. Rodrigues used many of Sport Karate’s Best in the film such as Caitlin Dechelle, Tyler Weaver, Dayna Huor and Dante Rodrigues.


In 2011, Mr. Rodrigues was named to the Board of Directors for the International Kenpo Council of Grand Masters.


Also in 2011, he became the International Coordinator of the World Cup of Mixed Martial Arts (WCMMA).


With these and many other accomplishments, in 1999 Inside Kung Fu Magazine included Mr. Rodrigues as one of the great 100 people that made an impact on the Martial Arts in the 20th century!


Grandmaster Rodrigues has been inducted into more than 30 Hall of Fames throughout his career.

Grandmaster Rodrigues, along with his student Shihan Alan D'Allassandro, developed the American Open Sword System, which they currently have more than 50 certified Black Belts in the AOSS.


Grand Master Christine Bannon - Rodrigues is a 9th Degree Black Belt and the co-owner of the Don Rodrigues Karate Academy. She began her training in 1980 and is an instructor in Kenpo Karate, Kickboxing, Wushu and Krav Maga.


Shihan Chris is said to be the best all-around female Sport Karate Competitor in the sport's history. She is a 9x WAKO world champion in forms, weapons and fighting, and holds a world record by being the only person to win a gold medal in all 3 categories at one world championship… and she did it twice!


After retiring from competition, she was sought after to stunt double for some major film stars such as Hillary Swank (The Next Karate Kid movie) and Alicia Silverstone (Batman and Robin), just to mention a few. Shihan Chris has appeared on the cover of over 50 Martial Art magazines and has been inducted into dozens of Hall of Fames, including Black Belt Magazine and Inside Kung Fu Magazine's Hall of Fames!


Shihan Chris has been hired by schools, tournaments and special events around the world to teach her skills that have made her a multi world champion. She also teaches many self-defense classes for women.


Since the early 90s, Shihan Christine has been a product designer, spokesperson and model for Macho Martial Arts - a Martial Arts company that sells fighting equipment and uniforms to schools all over the world, based in Sebastian, Florida. She is also the Coach of Team Macho.


Although she still enjoys doing stunt work from time to time and traveling around the world teaching seminars, performing or coaching her team, her main focus is teaching at Don Rodrigues Karate and trying to help all her students reach their goals and become the best that they can be.
