C.A.S.K. Karate not only has outstanding Youth and Women’s programs but professional instruction for the Co-Ed ADULT as well.

It will help you to keep in touch with your body, paying off in greater flexibility, coordination and balance, muscle control, as well as providing tuning and maintenance for your cardiovascular system. You are sure to see the benefits begin to show within your first few classes and also reap the rewards of higher self-esteem and self-confidence as your abilities grow.
C.A.S.K. Karate will not only benefit you physically and mentally, but is a great place to meet and make new friends. You will quickly find you are not alone but are part of a team working towards and helping each other to achieve personal goals.
Your current fitness level will be taken into consideration during training as we help you to push yourself at an acceptable but challenging pace to reach your goals.
Never think that you are too old! Do yourself a favour and give it a try. In our Co-Ed Adult classes you will find a wonderful mix of youth and maturity, as the generations blend in a unique shared experience. You may well find that the person standing next to you is a 40+ parent grinning from ear to ear as they try to conquer a new technique or perfect one already learned.
The Cayman Associated Schools of Karate-do were founded by Sensei Greg Reid (8th Dan).
C.A.S.K. runs beginner, intermediate, and black belt programs year round, with students receiving a chance to compete nationally and abroad. The style of karate taught is WADO, which is one of the four largest styles of karate in the world. C.A.S.K. is affiliated with Wado Karate Association of Canada, Shintani Karate-do, ISKF, and WUKO. C.A.S.K. also teaches Cayman's ONLY Tai Chi/Dai Chi Program!
The word “WADO” means “school/way to peace”. The style WADO was created by Hironori Otsuka (1892-1982) in 1934 in Japan. Master Otsuka formed WADO from traditional shurite-type karate from Okinawa, concentrating on the use of light and quick movements in conjunction with hip and body shifting. Master Otsuka also incorporated his earlier jujitsu into WADO Karate.
In North America, the late Master Masaru Shintani was the supreme head for all WADO; C.A.S.K. was under his direct guidance. Master Shintani held a ninth degree black belt, and was Master Otsuka’s senior student. Master Greg Reid is Master Shintani’s successor and is the technical director for Wado Canada.
