Master Hironori Otsuka (1oth Dan – Founder of Wado Ryu Karate)
At SKMA we teach Wado Ryu (The Peace Way) Karate, a style founded by Master Hironri Otsuka 10th Dan and brought to the UK in 1964 by Master Tatsou Suzuki 8th Dan.
A blend of Shotokan Karate and Jiujitsu, this style teaches locks, throws, weapons and skills, with an emphasis on Tae Sabaki (body evasion).
Our Chief Instructor Sensei Sean Kinsella had the honour of being taught by the late Master Tatsou Suzuki 8th Dan.
We teach 15 traditional Kata (patterns) alongside Kihon (basics) and Kumite (sparring).
We have trained numerous champions in many disciplines .
Karate has many benefits including increased discipline, self respect and self confidence.
