Welcome to Staffordshire Wado Ryu Karate
Traditional Wado Ryu training with an open mind
Chief Instructor - Sensei Tony Harvey 4th Dan
Whether you are interested in studying a traditional martial art, looking for a new challenge or a fun way to get fit, Karate has something for everyone and is a great antidote to the stresses of modern day life.
Our dojo welcomes students from age 5 upwards. No previous experience is necessary, just a positive attitude and a willingness to try your best. The instructors will show you everything you need to know and there are plenty of experienced senior grades who will be pleased to help.
The ultimate aim of the art of karate lies not in victory or defeat but in the perfection of the character of its participants through hard training, sincerity, effort, etiquette and self control.
