Grey Wolf Wado-Ryu Karate Club
The spirit within
Grey Wolf Karate had humble beginnings when a small group of like minded people formed a club to continue their personal Karate journeys, training in the traditional style of Wado-Ryu. The goal has always been to keep the fire of traditional Wado-Ryu Karate burning and, once established, Grey Wolf opened its doors to share this knowledge with more students, encouraging the flame to be passed on.
From the start our founder Sensei Mick Adams 6th Dan Renshi promoted the values of high standards of training and excellent dojo etiquette. These values remain fundamental to our club, preserved under the guidance of experienced instructors Sensei Mark Lawrence 4th Dan, Sensei Matthew Roberts 3rd Dan and Sensei James Latimer 3rd Dan. Some of our instructors have held instructor of the year awards reflecting their dedication to the art.
Grey Wolf Karate is a member of British Wadokai founded by Sensei Gary Swift 9th Dan Hanshi. Membership of British Wadokai has provided Grey Wolf with the highest standard of support and guidance, benefiting all our students and instructors. Grey Wolf has also been fortunate to have built ties with several UK and Norwegian Clubs, giving members the opportunity to travel, train and socialise together.
