LINCOLN KARATE ACADEMY providing classes in (Shi Kon) WADO RYU KARATE
Wadoryu karate was founded by Sensei Hironori Ohtsuka who studied jujutsu from the age of six, then karate with Gichin Funakoshi, Kenwa Mabuni and Choki Motobu, all legends in Okinawan karate. He blended the two styles to create Wadoryu karate.
Wa = peace and harmony, Do= way or method, Ryu = style
This indicates a soft style, so we train with the same katas and techniques as other styles but in a different way, different body movement, with lots of ideas taken from Japanese martial arts. We also train in shi kon katas and pairs work, before learning more traditional wado katas and pairs work and have a holistic approach to Karate, Healthy Mind, Body and Spirit.....
We have a friendly and safe environment to train in; the instructor is fully insured, CRB checked and a 3rd Dan.
