This is an outstanding Wado Ryu karate school! I've been a student at DDKS since 2020 and find the instruction excellent and very focused on proper technique. Training is at times intense, but also practical and educational. Time is taken to develop quality of the various punches, kicks, and stances. Kata training is superb and free sparring is spirited, yet controlled. My fellow classmates are great to work with and everyone is extremely pleasant and respectful. If you are interested in true martial arts training, this is the place!
