WILLEM UIJLINGS  //  3rd Dan Wadokai, Holland

with KEYS TO CRISP KATA, i help you...

βœ…  to never worry again what is the correct way through images, text, video walkthroughs, in-depth analysis, key point videos and high-level seminar footage.  

On all 15 Wadokai Kata.

I was hooked on Karate right from the start and wanted to know everything.

So I trained as much as I could. Got books, videos. And eversince internet was available to us mere humans I looked everwhere to learn more.

But that only lead to confusion.

Ishikawa said this. Suzuki said that.

And then I saw Ohtsuka sensei's video...

It was really frustrating.

Karate was still fun, but there was always that voice in the back of my head... doubtful. 

Is this the correct way?

Or worse: that after training a certain way for years, it appeared to be "wrong". And Kata changed.

That's the way Karate looks if you have insufficient understanding of the fundamentals.

Today, I don't have to worry or think about variations for a second. 

Or to wonder about what is right.

I enjoy practising Kata will full confidence. And I know exactly what to focus on to get my movement to the next level.

This is what I want for you too. Because it's not a matter of talent, it's about access to the knowledge.

I've been trained "the Japanese way" by Ishikawa sensei. And although he explained if you ask about it, it's just not the same as getting it all layed out clearly from the start.

That's why I created Keys to Crisp Kata.

It gives you everthing you need to develop sharp, solid and effective movement.

Plus the confidence it's fundamentally correct so you can truly enjoy your training without doubt.


Without Keys to Crisp Kata:

❌ You have to look up videos on YouTube. 

❌ You don't get a clear answer. 

❌ And when you compare 3 instructors you'll only confuse yourself more.

Exactly what I had when I didn't have the knowledge and ability.  

Result: you keep changing your Kata on the surface. Running around in circles. Looking back after 10 years realising you haven't progressed much.

And frankly, always in doubt about something that you should have complete confidence in after all those years. 

You need clear and concise answers you can work with. That you can execute right away.

Not cloudy and Zen-like answers that sound good but don't help you. 

And because that's exactly what I went through, I know how you feel. And how you can fix it.

The most efficient and interesting way is through fundamentals so you can:

βœ…  discover the deepest secrets of Wadokai Kata beyond stance, direction and technique β€” Even senior instructors with decades of training under Japanese were impressed by the sheer depth of the explanations.

Without these fundamentals it's very hard to connect the dots which is what keeps you stuck on this level. Or fix one thing at a time.

It deepens your knowledge AND generates momentum because working with the fundamental keys revealed in this course you can...

βœ… fix one move that affects and upgrades the quality of ALL your movement β€” The principle-based key points emerge from the fundamentals so whatever you discover in Pinan Nidan... it applies to every other movement you know as well.

With Keys to Crisp Kata you'll grow exponentially and stay ahead of the rest (they'll respect you for your skill, not your age).

The key points allow you:

βœ…  to understand and apply the high-level techniques easily β€” because the complex stuff is taught with simplicity so you know exactly what to focus on when you execute the technique.

Example: Bringing your arm across is NOT a key point. Because it doesn't tell you HOW to bring it across. Keys to Crisp Kata tells you how:

Leave the "I wish I could do that" days behind you...

You'll go from "knife hand block" to "move your hip the opposite direction" all the way to internal movement with compression and expansion. 

Now you have this knowledge you can practise without any doubts. You can truly enjoy every block and every punch you execute especially because your training is not maintanance but an upgrade.

And now you know exactly what to do, it's time to apply. Time to...

βœ…  create Kata applications even though Wado has no Bunkai. You'll discover why we don't have Bunkai. And how to use Kata.

  • With the eBook Kata Applications and analysis...
  • That contains well over 60 applications...
  • Plus the guide "How to create your own Kata applications"...
  • In combination with the fundamentals, key points and trainingsmethods that are inside Keys to Crisp Kata...'ll finally be able to practise and use Kata the Wado way. 

Download the eBooks, study the explanations and watch the videos to go to the Dojo armed with actionable key points that take your Kata and applications to the next level. 

this course will help keep your kata sharp

Thanks to Keys to Crisp Kata, I have a better understanding of stances as they relate to each other. This will facilitate learning the basics in a way that it β€œsticks” because each stance is not taught in isolation.
