“Teaching Traditional Japanese Karate”
Welcome to Arizona Wado Karate and Martial Arts Center, established in 1976 by Sensei Marlon Moore, 8th degree black belt. We hope you enjoy our web site and will stop by to visit our school.
Our School Motto: “Honor In All Things”
“Words could never fully express how much Wado Karate and especially Sensei Marlon have done for our son. He started only a year ago, just turning four, as a shy and anxious little boy. One year later, we see the amazing difference in confidence and self-esteem. At Wado, there are no limitations. Our son has learned so many skills and even participated in a tournament, and he is excited every day when we announce that it is a karate day. The patience of the Senseis is amazing – they have high expectations but they guide and support children in achieving them. Sensei Marlon has taken extra time to talk to and encourage our son, and he has become one of the most important adults in our son’s life. We absolutely love all that Wado has to offer. It is a true family that teaches skills and values beyond karate alone, and we look forward to being a part of this family for many years to come.”
Paula & Kent McCall
The karate lessons were a gift for our son’s 10th birthday to learn self defense and they have become the best gift he’s ever gotten. Through their introductory program ( nice intro fee too!) my son could see what he wanted to reach for by watching some of the amazing students in other classes. He was so inspired! These past 9 months the school has provided a positive influence through dedicated, experienced instructors who elevate potential in their students while building confidence into their lives. The focus, respect and abilities my son has developed gives him genuine experience of what he can really achieve – which flows nicely through family, school and friends. No doubt there were plenty of karate programs to consider, but this school, one built on decades of traditional values, has become an extended family to us and we love having them in our lives!
