Welcome to New Haven Wado Ryu

Our school (dojo) was founded in 2006 by 4th dan Michael Burgess (left) and his wife 2nd dan Terri Burgess.  With the generous support of New Haven City Hall, our school continues to grow and benifit the community.



Jeff Dickerson is our dojo's head instructor when Sensei Burgess is not in attendance and offers a slightly different "workout" due to his former studies in Shaolin.



New Haven Wado Ryu is open to ages 6+. Dues are only $10 per month and $5 for each additional family member.

For additional information email us at New Haven Wado Ryu or call Jeff Dickerson at
