BENEFITS OF KARATE
Karate is a Japanese martial art meaning kara - empty, te - hand.
The style of karate we teach is Wado. Wado was founded by Hironori Ohtsuka in 1934.
WadoKai Worcester is a very unique club that not only competes at competitions but also teaches traditional Wado karate.
Recent studies have shown that karate enables people not to just defend themselves but develops life skills such as; Focus, Teamwork, Control, Balance, Discipline, co-ordination, Respect, Achievement, Memory, Fitness, Self Confidence and more

My son Sam has been going to the club for 5 years now. fabulous coaching, very friendly people who have given Sam so many wonderful competitive opportunities from local competitions to international. it's an absolute joy to be part of such a wonderful club.
My whole family (2 kids + mum and dad) have been attending Karate classes at WadoKai Worcester since 2015. We've been so lucky to be able to learn from Sensei Katrina and Sensei David who have a wealth of world-class karate experience and very relaxed and child friendly approach.
Karate is one of the things we do as a family and benefits are two-fold - kids enjoy learning with their parents and parents get a bit of exercise.
I’m not sure my childhood dream to achieve a black belt will come true one day, but it’s never too late to start.

I'd recommend Katrina's Karate sessions to every school! She took 4 classes throughout the morning for varying ages. They introduce the basic skills of karate in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. The students got so much out of the lessons and had such a fantastic time!!
We'll definitely be booking Katrina in the future.
Excellent club, with friendly, caring and professional teaching. My daughter has been going for over two years and has grown her skills, confidence and friendships. Thank you for being such a wonderful club!
I wish their teachers could have seen it as I am sure that they would have been stunned. Students working independently, cooperating, negotiating, supporting..... the list of skills is endless and is more than most believe is capable in kids under 8. You are giving them so much more than karate.
The opportunities you are providing them all is brilliant and I really do hope that just a few of the parents realise what an experience their children are getting.
