WKSI – Wadokai Karatedo Shin-gi-tai Italia is a no-profit association committed to preserving and fostering the traditional Japanese karate style of Wado-ryu, meaning The Way to Harmony (or Peace). The concept of harmony is intended as self-awareness, balance and self-confidence: it inspires our activity aiming at physical and mental training of students with a social purpose.
WKSI is registered with CONI and affiliated to the Sport Promotion Organization CSEN, and is a social promotion association enrolled in the Registro Nazionale del Ministero del Lavoro e delle Politiche Sociali. Moreover, we are members of the Japan Karatedo Federation Wado-Kai and IKF – IKKAIDO, the international martial arts federation devoted to including people with a disability.
By practicing traditional karate in our dojos, gyms, schools and all projects promoting culture, recreation, social assistance – and even tourism and environment – we promote the well-being of people from every perspective – being it physical, mental, social and spiritual. In consistency with the modern spirit of Japanese Budō, we cultivate the huge educational potential of karate.
