Style of Karate

Wado DoveAt Reading Karate Club we train in Wado Kai Karate. This is a softer style of karate which focuses on technique and less on physical strength. This means that you do not have to be strong to participate and the style is ideal for everyone, irrespective of age, fitness or sex. However this does not make Wado Kai Karate a weaker style, it is still an extremely effective method of self defence. more›

Karate Classes

We run two karate classes in Reading each Wednesday, one for children and one for adults. For details on each of the classes please use the links.

We understand that the hardest step to make is the first one through the dojo door, so if after browsing the site you are still unsure whether Wado Kai Karate is for you, why not pop down on Wednesday to watch a lesson and see what it is like. You're more than welcome to either join in or sit at the side and watch.

The effects of karate

Karate can make very positive changes to your life, teaching discipline, etiquette and respect for all.

Physically karate training enhances strength, coordination, stamina, balance and flexibility. It can improve both the quality and longevity of your life and it will make you feel happier and more alert.

As well as developing your body karate also trains the mind, resulting in improved self-awareness, discipline, confidence and will-power.
