Most of the Karate folks I've met have practiced Wado Ryu (it is a particularly popular style in the UK and Ireland too). The reason for its popularity in Europe and beyond was largely down to Tatsuo Suzuki, who sadly passed away on 12th of July this year. I'm not a Karateka but I thought I'd make this post as some folks have in the past expressed admiration for his work as a karate teacher and indeed a few people on here have claimed to train with him.

A brief interview from the man:

A shame.

Never trained in Wado myself but I read the interview. Seemed like a good man and karateka!

It's sad to hear of his passing- a prayer will be given for him.
I know nothing of Karate, but the man seemed to be of great importance, and also seemed to be a wonderful sensei!
