Does anyone else play golf?

I was wondering if anyone else plays golf. Has been quiet of late, so something different for the moment. For me, I like the process of learning and practice as it is very much like kihon and actually very refreshing to not be able to do something, but then bring the discipline learnt through karate...

Fuuyu no kata - article by Reg Kear

I have added an article by Reg Kear, titled Allegory in kata, who asked me to format it for presentation on this website. As he has spent a lot of time writing the article, I think it is only right that it goes into the Wadopedia section and hopefully encourage more people to sign up. Thank you for ...

Re: Shiomitsu Sensei visited the Winter Course

Am just going to reuse an old post to say that Shiomitsu Sensei was at the Wado Academy Summer Course recently visiting for the one day. For the first time we saw him take some steps from his wheelchair to take his seat for the group photo. It was lovely to see. There's still a long way to go. When ...

Re: Opening your body, pinan shodan and uraken uchi

When I teach those first three movements I talk about opening, closing and then opening the body.
