At the Birmingham Martial Arts Centre we offer the leading style of karate with a 21st century approach, Wado Ryu Sport Karate. Wado Ryu translates as “the way of peace and harmony”. Wado Ryu is taught all over the world, it is a style of karate derived from a mixture of Japnese Karate and Jui-jitsu. Wado Ryu is a free flowing and dynamic style of karate that is a lot less rigid than other traditional forms of martial arts.
One of the main differences of Wado Ryu compared to other forms of karate and martial arts is its use of evasion techniques which include manoeuvres to avoid being hit where possible and still maintaining the ability to strike your opponent back efficiently. Our trained instructors will show you the best practices for evading attacks and counter attacking in seamless moves.
The skills students will learn from our trained instructors using Wado Ryu karate are:
• Take Downs
• Self defence
This class is excellent for developing power, balance and co-ordination. It gives students a strong foundation for awareness and self-defence. Our classes in Karate will teach discipline. The skills you will learn at the Birmingham Martial Arts Centre will allow your confidence to grow and will be a continuous learning experience.
Our karate classes will allow students to learn the basic skills and work their way up to achieve black belt status. Through the practice of Wado Ryu you will notice that your overall fitness, strength and stamina will improve. You body will tone up through the energetic workout required to practice Wado Ryu. This form of exercise can help you lose weight and become more toned.
The nature and style of Wado Ryu means that you do not need to be young to learn the practice. Wado Ryu does not rely solely on physical strength which is why it can suit all ages and all types of people. Students of any age are welcome to join our classes.
