Wado Academy

Since its conception in 1989, the Wado-Ryu Karate-Do Academy has grown into a huge organisation with affiliated clubs across Europe and also worldwide.

The Academy is open to all practitioners of Wado-Ryu Karate who wish to follow the true teachings of the founder of Wado-Ryu Karate-Do, Grandmaster Hironori Ohtsuka 1st.

The Wado Academy is now headed by his son, Grandmaster Hironori Ohtsuka 2nd and the chief instructor is M. Shiomitsu 9th Dan Hanshi.

Shiomitsu Sensei travels regularly to each of the affiliated clubs to conduct courses, gradings and most importantly, to maintain a uniform standard.

As well as the summer and winter courses in the UK, there are many weekend courses to which students are always warmly invited to attend and unless specified, all grades are welcome to all courses.

There are also many seminars held in various countries throughout the world, such as USA, Canada, Hawaii and Australia.
