Hi

Sorry, but even though Wado-Ryu is from Japan, it isn't hard and linear.

It was developed by a student of Funakoshi, as he also trained in Jiu-Jitsu. He molded the two together and BOOM!!! Wado-Ryu

I'd say Wado-Ryu is quite soft.

Therefore, Wado ryu do not meet force with force as much as in shotokan.

Wado Ryu is linear.
It's very relaxed in comparison to some other styles. ANd yep, it is a synthesis of SHindo Yoshin Ryu Jujitsu and Okinawan Karate-Do.
Interesting thing (which i think is cool) is that you're going to find rather "Aikido-esque" movements and pricinples in Wado.
It's pretty neat. Iv'e enjoyed it so far

I think wado ryu is a style I would have liked to try because of its mix with jiu-jitsu and that it was created by one of Funakoshi best student. Well, it's too bad there aren't clubs close to me.

Wado Ryu was founded by Hironori Ohtsuka. He inherited/earned the title of Grand Master of Shindo Yoshin Ryu Jujitsu at the age of 29. He met Funakoshi soon after. Ohtsuka became Funakoshi's head assistant instructor in Japan, much the dismay of Funakoshi's Okinawan students.
Ohtsuka studied with Ueshiba Sensei as well. That would explain some of the spiritual elements and the sometimes "Aikido-esque" feel.
Wado is prevelant in the southeastern united states. I think there is quite a bit of it in Ireland and maybe England... not positive about that though.

When I look at karate from a holistic perspective, I see that there are more styles than required and things are getting ever more complex. For example, Joe learns wado ryu and uechi ryu and bang you have yet another style of karate. I mean things are only get more complicated as time passes by.

That only happens if Joe decides to teach others.

Valn you are learning much. Karate is a broad topic. I can be very awesome to realize that there are well over 300 documented styles of martial arts. And who knows how many undocumented.

In karate alone there are splits and consolidations. Karate seems to be a lifetime learning event. It is a live art that continues to change and evolve.

Just think prior to the 1940's women and children were not genereally permitted in the dojo. Most non orientals were not welcomed. The wide spread practice of karate is a relatively new event in the history of the world. We feel a need to stay true to the art and in order to do that constant study will be required.

We are lucky to have the media to record it and the communications ability to access it in the first place.
