Welcome to VMIK.org, the home of Van Marciano Institute of Karate

This website is currently under construction. When complete it will become both my personal journal as a Wado Ryu Karate Ka, and an archive of articles and videos which I hope you will find useful. I started learning Wado Ryu Karate at the age of 15 and instantly fell in love with the art. I've had the great honor and privilege of training and learning from many credible instructors both from Europe and Japan over the years. I practice for two reasons - For improving my mental and physical health, and for learning more about the art and its rich history.
