Katsube sensei and Shimura sensei of JKF Wadokai

Thank you for visiting the website of Manchester JKF Wadōkai. We hold classes three times each week training authentic Japanese Wadōkai Karate-dō. 


We are an official branch dojo of the JKF Wadokaione of the original styles of karate-dō. You can find some examples of this method here on our youtube channel

Our club is a not-for-profit group offering members the opportunity to learn Japanese karate based on the original training methods taught by JKF Wadōkai. Please note that we have a minimum entry of 16 years if age. 


Karate is a great way to build fitness, stay healthy and of course, it is an effective means of self defence. The club has a well established relationship with leading karateka from around the world and regularly hosts seminars with the leading teachers from Japan.
