Insert and DVD


In 1998, Wado Canada published the definitive text on Wado kata as taught by founder Hironori Otsuka.

Wado-Kai Karate Kata is written by the late Top Master Masaru Shintani, 9th Dan, and Saiko Shihan Gregory Reid, 8th Dan, both of whom trained with Wado founder Hironori Otsuka and learned the fine points of the kata directly from him.

This DVD is an electronic version of that book which is no longer in exsistence. The kata in the DVD is described exactly as Otsuka Sensei taught them to his students.

“I look forward to the future when all students under my direction will use this book as a standard reference text,” said Shintani Sensei in a letter to his students and instructors. “This will allow students to train Wado kata exactly as Saiko Shihan Otsuka wished us to, and will honour his memory.”

Top Master Masaru Shintani's letter

The book, a must for all students of karate especially Wado students, was also endorsed by the Shintani Wado-Kai Karate Federation.

The 360-page limited edition book contained more than 800 high-quality black and white pictures of Shintani Sensei and Reid Sensei performing the kata, and describing the fine points. This DVD is an exact replica of that book, electronically offered in .pdf format for your study and enjoyment.
