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. 


The club is an official branch dojo of the JKF Wadokai. You can find some examples of this method of Karate-dō here on our youtube channel

Our club is a not-for-profit group offering visitors and members the opportunity to learn proper Japanese karate based on the original training methods of JKF Wadōkai . Please note that training is subject to a minimum entry of 16 year of age.


Karate provides different opportunities depending on the level of commitment. To advance to the first 'black belt' level in the minimum timeframe, a student will need to train two to three times each week for four to five years. However, most participants train less frequently but still enjoy their karate training which helps to build fitness, personal protection skills and self development through regular practice.


If you have any questions, or if you would like to try karate, then please get in touch. Contact details can be found here or you can use the contact form.
