What is Wado-ryu karate?
Simply put, Wado-ryu [和道流] is an elite form of Japanese karate. The name Wadō-ryū can be broken up into three separate parts. Wa (harmony), dō (way) and ryū (style). It’s important to recognise that this is not a passive karate style and that harmony should be interpreted as a counter to brute strength.
Although the style may look similar to other forms of karate, it is actually more derived from Shindō Yōshin-ryū, which is actually a form of Jujitsu. Our Wado-ryu karate classes at Newport City Martial Arts will teach you all aspects of this elite fighting style.
We’ve been featured in all the local newspapers for martial arts, community contributions and anti-bullying initiatives.
