Learn about Wado-Ryu Karate - Katas, Techniques, etc.

Wado-Ryu is a popular sub-style of Karate. It was created by Hironori Ohtsuka, who was born in 1892 in Shimodate City, Ibaragi, Japan.

Wado-Ryu differs from other Karate styles (i.e. Shotokan) because it does not emphasis hard contact sparring. Rather, it focuses on Taisabaki (body shifting or body management) in order to avoid or minimize an opponent's attack. It also has shorter stance than what is used in other styles on Karate, and is taught in most school's to be more fluid, in movements and strikes.

You should also visit the Karate section of our community site in order to discuss Karate techniques and/or meet Karate students/instructors.
