Thank you for visiting the website of Manchester JKF Wadōkai. This is a Karate club for those want to practice authentic Japanese karate.
The Manchester JKF Wadōkai is run as a not-for-profit group. We have a minimum entry age of 15 years of age, but no upper age limit applies - and it is never too late to start. Our members are drawn from a wide variety of backgrounds and we enjoy a social side as well as regular karate practice.
Karate is an excellent way to build fitness and learn self defence techniques. For many people, it becomes a lifelong study and provides the physical and mental exercise needed as part of a balanced and healthy lifestyle.
