Wadoryu karate is a Japanese martial art that is based on Okinawan karate and Japanese Shindo Yoshin Ryu jujutsu. The Wadoryu style of karate is well suitable for all men and women, regardless of age, shape or size. The techniques in Wadoryu include (but are not limited to) punches, kicks, blocks, throws and joint locks. For those who are interested, competing in kumite (controlled fighting) or kata (patterns of movements) is also possible in karate.
