History Wado-Ryu

The term Wado-Ryu means “way of peace” or “way of harmony”.

Wado-Ryu Karate is a Japanese Martial Art founded by Hironori Ohtsuka Sensei in 1934.  He developed Wado-Ryu after studying the Samurai arts of Jiu-Jitsu & Shotokan (another style of karate).  This combination is a softer, more natural means of self protection.
