increase your striking ability and turn your basics to life with level-3 meotode and compression skills using yokoyama's proven-effective framework

FROM: AJ van Dijk — Chief Instructor Karate & Kobudo, Founder of The Digi Dojo

SUBJECT: How to build your Meotode from the ground up, while at the same time increasing compression skills, trapping and one-inch-punch ability.

Dear Martial Artist,

Do you want to unlock fundamental skill and improve your Meotode so your basic blocks come to life?

Especially the ability to strike with compression without relying on low-level hip twisting that inhibits you from executing techniques with the speed and sharpness you're looking for?

And by the way: You also want to hear this if you're looking to boost your trapping skills.

Because what if I told you...

  • There are methods that develop compression FAST — so your punches become sharper than ever (your friends will wonder how you're pulling that off).
  • It's these very same methods that hardwire Meotode into your body — so your defense and offense will be more effective. Automatically.
  • And there's a framework that teaches Compression and Meotode simultaneously from the ground up — trapping skills included that unlock your 1-inch-punch ability.

Sounds perfect, right?

Why is it then, that the majority of Martial Artists have NO CLUE how this works?

Unaware of the deeper skills. Unaware of the framework.

Maybe they know some techniques. But they're stand-alones — not fundamentally contributing to their level.

And unfortunately: it's arm movement. 

But you can fix that.

On this page I'll reveal exactly what you can do to...

  • Turn your regular basics into impenetrable defense.
  • Have an iron defense inside your attacks.
  • And your moves will get that WOW factor 🤩

In other words:

If you want to know how to unlock your Meotode and Compression skills — keep reading.

my unexpected Discovery That Connected The Dots And Skyrocketed My Skill

If it wasn't for my discovery...

...I would still be thinking I "know" Meotode — instead of able to do it properly (so that it actually works).

Let me bring you up to speed first:

  1. Level 1 is a basic as-you-know-it "block". Jodan Uke, Uchi Uke, Soto Uke, etcetera (the ones you repeat over and over, but seem to have no place in sparring or real fighting).
  2. Next is blocking with Meotode — your basic block done with two hands so it becomes more practical and "fight-ready".
  3. Level 3 is Meotode with quality. With trapping and compression skills.

The reality is this: 

Level 2 is more practical than level 1, but it still won't work well because it's too slow. And it's not strong enough.

There's good news though👇

You can get to level 3 fast with a proven-effective framework.

But I didn't realise this untill 2011...

  • Even though Meotode was in my skillset...
  • Even though Compression was something I emphasised...
  • Even though I studied under highly skilled instructors...

It wasn't untill I privately trained with Yokoyama Kancho to see that.

Here's how that started (and what I found out) ⬇️

Back in 2009, I got my hands on Yokoyama's DVD on Naihanchi.

And not even 5 minutes in...


Desperate to study under him directly.

What was even more crazy is this:

At the end of the DVD it showed an email address. I figured it must be one of his students — like I produced Ishikawa sensei's DVD.

As it turned out, it was Yokoyama himself! 

We emailed up and down and kept in touch untill I finally met him in person in 2011. The rest is history.

Through him, I started to understand how Meotode and Compression skills are intertwined.

I was able to merge and internalise the skills more deeply.

And to make sure you don't think I'm making this up ⬇️

And although not on written record, he asked me to teach his Meotode to the next generation. 

That's why I created "Mastering Meotode".

Anyway — enough about me. 

You need to know only one thing:

Meotode and Compression can't be separated. 

The reason is simple.

  • Without compression, Meotode is nothing more than arm movement.
  • You can't marry lower-level hip twisting with Meotode, so you need Compression.
  • So no matter how many applications you know — you can't apply them if Meotode and Compression are seperated. Or simply: if your ability to compress is too low.

There are effective ways to train this which I'll reveal on this page.

The problem is that most Martial Artists stick to the twist-hip level type of Karate.

Of course hip twisting will help you to get powerful techniques. You can deliver impact effectively.  And when you hit a bag your friend can still feel it.

And if that's you, maybe you're happy where you are...

It's fine — but there's more 👇

You can go deeper skill wise:

  • Get more power
  • Increase sharpness
  • Boost your versatility
  • And do it more efficiently (it opens up other applications too because you don't need much rotation or space)

So that said, you know you need Meotode and Compression to get there.

And I'm sorry to drop the bomb, but that's problem number 2.

  • If you don't have a framework where Meotode affects your Compression and the other way around...
  •'ll never connect the dots and get the skill.
  • And if you still get it through trial and error, you're lucky. But you wasted decades of training that you could have used to perfect the skill. Or study other elements more deeply...

So you might be wondering:

Is there a way to improve Meotode and Compression at the same time?

"Yes — and there's a framework for it."

—Yokoyama demonstrating a Meotode Application - from his book "Principles of Karate"

The Framework that builds Compression and Meotode simultaneously — from the ground up

Remember your schooldays?

Chapter 1, chapter 2. Every thing done step by step. And each lesson had a subject.

The reason it's like that in school is simple: it's effective.

But in Martial Arts we often jump from A to Z. At random. 

So let me ask you this:

How do you think you can master a skill more effectively...

  • At random? 
  • Or step by step with a framework that takes out all guesswork...

Yokoyama didn't have a framework when he studied Meotode. He only had Kata and applications.

He developed his skill through subconciously merging Praying Mantis (Wei Hsiao Tang) with Shorin Ryu Karate (Shugoro Nakazato).

fun and fundamental framework

Decades of training later, he analysed how he got the skill and concluded it needed a framework. To study effectively. Not needing to be lucky like he was...

A setup that all Karateka can use — regardless of style.

And that's where it get's interesting...

Like Naihanchi forges your body, this framework turns your body into a Meotode Machine:

It creates high-level Compression skill such as Ten Chi Jin and what Yokoyama called "instantaneous strike"...

And: it's fun too ⬇️

  • All methods inside The Framework follow Naihanchi's concept so your body will get used to compression and one-inch punch skills fast.
  • Plus, it teaches Meotode on internal and external level — preparing your Meotode for quality so even your instructor will be impressed with your movement.
  • The Framework is built on this foundation so you can benefit directly from the Kata's essence with practical movement.
  • You skip years of trial and error so you can practise without doubt and frustration.
  • Every proven-effective step of the way matches your needs. No over-complicated stuff like a stretch you can't get into in the first place — so you'll enjoy your training even more.

And to bridge the gap between your basics as-you-know-it and application...

...there's a specific step-by-step system to go from static basics to applicable two-hands movement.

here's what other martial artists got from Mastering meotode:


When I first saw it in action I was fascinated.

This has not been anything I've been taught during all the years. It's like a new dimension added to technics you already practice, but put in a more effective way. 

To block or trap with striking in the same movement is an effective weapon indeed, and thanks to Mastering Meotode I have methods to practise this. 

I would strongly recommend to others that are interested to deepen their knowlege and discover a new effectiveness of Karate. Mastering Meotode will improve your fighting and defense ability, body contol and body centerline.

Martin Ström — 3rd Dan Wadokai, Sweden


I got Mastering Meotode to fill in the gaps in my karate skills.

The biggest eye opener I got from the series is the importance of the basics. If you know the basics you can progress quickly, even without dojo training.

The best reason for using Mastering Meotode is to understand advanced technics and the quick progression you will have. Just get the Mastering Meotode - you wont regret it.

In short...

  1. Stand-alone theory may be interesting. And applications are cool. But without a framework that only serves as entertainment. No other instructor has ever provided a Meotode Framework that holds your hand every step of the way. So you develop the quality of your skill.
  2. Focus is on effective training methods that generate understanding and better execution at the same time.
  3. Everything you discover is handed down from the purest of Karate lineages merged with the "Stacking System" that professional teachers use. 

Still you might be thinking... why should you take my course? 

Let me answer your question:

My name is AJ van Dijk, dedicated to Martial Arts since 1996. I've studied under and taught alongside Ishikawa, Nukina, Sakagami, May and Yokoyama sensei — among the best in Wadokai & Shorin Ryu Karate and Okinawan Kobudo. 

Next to my training, teaching senior instructors internationally and being the author of several books including the bestseller "Wado No Michi"...

...I've worked closely with Kazumasa Yokoyama who is well known for his extraordinary skill level. Especially his Meotode.

I'm his successor in Europe for Kenshinkai Kobudo and studied Karate and Meotode with him deeply.

This video is our Kakie demonstration in Japan — Okinawan Karate sticky hands.

You'll see Yokoyama's Meotode in action — merged with Wado Taisabaki.

The Meotode Drill Series is exactly as Yokoyama taught me — up untill his precise words where applicable.

All theory and applications are directly from him, or drawn from the essence of his teachings.

do you still have questions? 

Here's an answer list to the most common questions that I get about the course:

Q — What style is this?
A — Essentially this transcends style. I am Wado, and Yokoyama was Shorin Ryu. The focus of the skill is to transform YOUR basics, no matter what style you do. The template of the drill is based on Shorin Ryu Naihanchi, but since everything inside "Mastering Meotode" is method and application training it doesn't matter what style you do.

Q — I've already seen some Meotode, how is this different?
A — The key lies in the fundamentals in combination with the framework. Naming techniques "Meotode" or knowing that you need to use both hands is not the same as a step-by-step system that's designed to build your skill.

Q — I don't have hours to study, is this course useful for me?
A — Every step of the way is a seperate video which you can "binge watch". But you can watch them one by one as well. You can study the first video and practise that in week 1. Progressing slowly but surely if you lack time.

Plus: it's more physical than theoretical so you can enjoy it during your Dojo time.

Q — Are there hidden or recurring fees?
A — No. Even though you're getting all future updates for free — It's a one-time payment.

Q — Do I get access to everything right away?
A — Yes! The full course is unlocked the second you jump on board. Bonuses included.
