**History

In 1965 Teruo Kono introduced Wado Ryu Karate Do into the Netherlands. Harm Massee was one of the first generation Judo and Jiu Jutsu teachers who started to train karate. Fascinated by Hironori Ohtsuka it’s budo discipline, Harm easily passed for his 1st Dan exam in 1968, together with R. Zwartjes, J. van Hellemond, J. Korzelius, T. Tromp, K. Gietelink, H. Spermon, J. van der Vlugt en H. Essink .

Along the years, Harm fulfilled different organizational roles for developing Wado further into the Netherlands and currently holds the 7th Dan grade.

January 2012 was the right time for teaming up with the FWE and for founding the Dutch Wadokai branch in the Netherlands, technically advised by Barry Wilkinson 8th Dan.
