Ealing Wado Kai
Welcome to the Ealing Wado Kai website. This is where you will find all the information you need if you are interested in you or your child starting karate. The Ealing Wado Kai club is headed up by Steve West Sensei 6th Dan. We run classes in Ealing (just off Northfields Avenue) for young people from 6 to 16 years of age on Friday evening (see 'CLASSES') and adult classes on Wednesday evening at St Thomas' on Boston Manor Road.
The club has been in existence since 2011. Our sister club and association 'Hombu', in Chiswick also has classes for children and adults.
We teach Wado Ryu, the 'style' of Karate devised by Hironori Ōtsuka during the 1930s. This is one of the most practised forms of karate worldwide.
Like many sports (or martial arts) if a student enjoys the activity there is a plethora of opportunities to hand. Competitions, grading and displays are all additional activities to explore for a lifetime. Unlike many sports, true martial arts work as well for older as well as younger students.
Through many years of teaching young people, I have found that the best results come from being patient but firm & encouraging. With the right combination of discipline, learning & enjoyment they can accomplish their goals.
