Brussels’ Shôtôkan Karate-dô Sawada Academy 

Relocated first in June 1978 and latter in March 2007, the Brussels’ Shôtôkan Karate-dô Center was meanwhile renamed Brussels' Shôtôkan Karate-dô Sawada Academy.

Early '78 Sensei’s Miyazaki* and Sawada managed to transform a movie theater into a convivial dojo.
Once the wooden floor layed - over 200 m² - necessary facilities followed.
Side mirrors, added to the seven meters high ceiling, increased the impression of space in the training hall.
To say the least, many people spent a great deal of sweat on this floor, including Belgian national squad.

Today the dojo is located on the verdant university campus of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB).
