Wado-ryu Karate Style

About Shinwa Karate Kai

Wado-ryu Karate was founded in 1934 by Grand Master Hironori Ohtsuka (1893-1982).

Ohtsuka Sensei combined aspects of Shindo Yoshin-ryu Jujutsu and Okinawan Karate to create his own unique style of Japanese Martial Art, Wado-ryu Karate-do.

We practice the style of Wado Ryu Karate, and follow the teachings of Hironori Ohtsuka.

Ohtsuka created the Wado-Ryu style of Karate, and in 1972, he received the title of Meijin and the rank of 10th dan by the Japanese Royal Family’s Higashi No Kuni no Miyakarate.

It was the first such honour ever bestowed upon a Karate teacher in Japan.
