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.
