In 1969 Shingo Ohgami came to Gothenburg, Sweden as a guest researcher in chemistry at Chalmers Technical College. He started a Karate club at the same time. It was the beginning of Swedish Karatedo Wadokai. Today we have approximately 20 clubs throughout Sweden, but headquarters dojo is in Gothenburg.
We have participated at European Wado Cup almost every year since 1970. Sweden hosted European Wado Cup in 1980, 1990, 1994 and 1999.
We have about 20 clubs including honorary member clubs.
We have been publishing bulletin ‘Svenska Wadokai’ for members for four times a year since 1977 (40 pages but unfortunately in Swedish).
We organize under Shingo Ohgami three training camps a year. The camps are attended not only by Swedish members but also by many high graded people from various countries in Europe.
