 General Information

Glynneath Karate Has been open since 1971, It is one of the oldest clubs in Wales and is part of
Welsh Karate Association, which it helped form in 1978.

Wado Ryu is our Style,  but we do have visiting instructors from Ju-Jitsu, Aikido and Kick Boxing, and will continue to have ALL styles teaching here to give students a broader view of the Martial Arts.

                                      Ignorance is not bliss, We should all learn (the good parts) from each other.
We teach Traditional Karate in a safe and controlled atmosphere. Students can benefit from Karate Training with Increased Fitness, Confidence and an Improvement in the Ability to Defend themselves. Training in Ju-Jitsu and Weapons is also Available for Students at Senior Level.

The WKA is recognised by The Welsh Sport Council. The Association is also a associate of British Karate Federation, European Karate Union, World Karate Federation (formally WUKO), We also have contacts with Professional Karate Association (USA).

Our Web Site has been prepared to promote, the Martial Arts, the Students and any Events or Competition by ANY Style.
