Why subscribe?

Subscribe to get full access to the newsletter and website. Never miss an update. You will find themes connected to Wado karate and general martial arts. Similar to my regular established blog posts on Wordpress the subjects will be exploring technique, martial arts culture, training methods and the depth of knowledge found within Wado karate and martial arts in general.

Stay up-to-date

You won’t have to worry about missing anything. Every new edition of the newsletter goes directly to your inbox. The paid content will feature greater detail and complexity of study of themes already covered and other new material, suitable for those who want to delve into more advanced study. The reason for the paid content is because in-depth articles take time to write, and articles involving research mean pulling together diverse threads and contacts to create meaningful content. Yes. it’s a labour of love, but hopefully the audience will appreciate the real value of this niche area.

Once launched it will only be the same price you would pay for a coffee and maybe a Danish pastry. You will find it’s worth it.

Gmail users, watch out that my emails may end up in your ‘Promotions’ folder, this seems to be a thing.
