OUR ORGANIZATION

Kazoku Wado-ryu Karate-do kai is an Organization founded by Sensei Pedro L. Rodriguez, our President, in our pursuit for knowledge and improvement into our Karate style. The heart of our organization resides in being a family, working together and putting aside the business and franchises that have led Karate to get lost through time, we are pursuing knowledge and communion to follow Tatsuo Suzuki sensei’s teachings. Working together with the Suzuki Ha Wado Ryu team.

How great he was, without a doubt there will be no other like him, everything he said or did was because he did it himself, until the last of his days he used karate gi and taught what he knew the most.

“Today, Karate in most schools is only a sport, and this is wrong. I must agree that there can be a sport side to it, but the instructor should balance this and teach the student the two sides of the coin”
