Martial arts is great way to help students gain confidence, improve fitness levels, learn respect for yourself and others around you.For our younger students a lot of what is taught to them is non contact, we use karate to help teach them skills like, co-ordination, self control, balance, respect for each other.
Wado Ryu Karate was founded by Hironori Ohtsuka Sensei in 1934. Ohtsuka Sensei developed Wado Ryu after studying the Samurai martial art of Jiu-jitsu, and Shotokan (another style of Karate). This combination, according to Ohstuka Sensei, is a softer, more natural means of self-protection.
The term Wado Ryu means “Way of Peace and Harmony”. This indicates Ohtsuka Sensei’s original intention to use training in Wado Ryu as a means of solving problems in a non-violent way. The word Karate means “Empty Hand”.
