Wado-Ryu Karate



otsuka hironori Wado-Ryu KarateWado-Ryu Karate was developed by Otsuka Hironori and is one of the four main styles of Japanese karate. Hironori used his knowledge of Shotokan Karate, Jujutsu, grappling and Tai Sabaki (Body Movement) to form his own style. Wado-Ryu Karate does not practice many of the body toughening exercises common to other styles of karate, preferring rather to use Tai Sabaki to evade attacks.



Origin of Wado-Ryu: Japan

Founder of Wado Ryu: Otsuka Hironori in 1930
