When the people of Nashville come to O'Riley Karate Centers to learn Wado-Ryu, they don’t just receive color belts, but a staff that is dedicated to helping them improve themselves.
Dedicated to Teaching our students the Art of Wado-Ryu Karate-do
Learning any martial art can only be the memorizing of techniques! However at O'Riley Karate Centers we focus on teaching our students much more than just the movements. Wado-Ryu Karate is, in many respects, a way of life. We do not mean that certain individuals earn a living from being in matches or teaching. Wado-Ryu is a way of life because it practices the mind, body, and spirit as one. When you practice a strike, a throw, or ant technique, the goal is to understand your body and inner self and be one with the movement. Eventually the goal is to be completely in control of the moment as well as yourself and and be able to bring out that amount of centerdness when you need it in and situation... All the stresses in your life become much more manageable when you know how to find your center and understand that you have the mental and spiritual tools you need to overcome the potential event.
