Wado ryu is fairly traditional and is an Okinawan style.

Wado ryu is fairly traditionnal but is not an Okinawan style. It's a Shotokan offshoot so it's Japanese.

Traditionally the Founder of Wado Ryu trained with Ginchin Funakoshi, but they had differing views on Karate. He decided to make his own style which combined Karate with Ju Jutsu

Rumor: It was also said that he was to succeed Funakoshi as Grandmaster, but since mastership follows lineage, they would not accept him. Same happened with my Grandmaster.

Yes, Hironori Ohtsuka decided to create his own style because he and Master Funakoshi had different opinions on sparring and competition.
Master Funakoshi got really angry when he saw his student Ohtsuka practicing sparring with another student using protections (kendo armours).

So Master Ohtsuka (who already was a Ju Jutsu master) left Master Funakoshi and started Wado Ryu. It's interesting to see that Wado Ryu katas remained closer to original Okinawa katas...

Wado ryu is one of the four largest karate styles in Japan but is steeped in Okinawan tradition.
