Wado Ryu Karate

A Japanese martial art form, developing the entire body through rigorous training, with an emphasis on practical self-defense techniques which are practiced in a controlled environment. Benefits of karate include increased agility, coordination, strength, flexibility and discipline. As with most martial arts, karate is 90% mental and 10 percent physical.
