Welcome to the official website of the Australian Wado-Ryu Karate.
Based in Western Australian, the Chief instructor is Sensei Michael GUNN, he has more than 30 years’ experience in Wado Ryu karate and holds a 5th Dan, he is a current West Australian State Kumite and Kata coach.
The style is a member of the Australian Karate Federation (AKF) and affiliated with the World Karate Federation (WKF).
Wado Ryu is one of the original 4 styles of Karate started by Sensei OTSUKA in Tokyo, Japan. Wado Ryu is a mixture of Karate and Jujutsu making it a fast and graceful martial art.
Although the training is traditional based, there is a competitive stream where students compete in tournaments testing their skills against the other karate styles.
Self-defence is a major part of our training with the fusion of Jujutsu and Karate allowing for students to learn strikes, throws and wrist locks and arm bars.
All instructors (Black belts) are qualified and accredited level 1 coaches through the Australian Sports Commission (ASC), they all hold Working with Children checks and provide all students with safe but fun training environment.
Our Black belts are of an international standard having been graded by the Wado Ryu hierarchy from Japan.
New members are most welcome including all levels and abilities, ages from 5 years and up, come and join one of our family friendly clubs.
