Revolutionise your Karate with in-depth knowledge, proven-effective methods and practical keys that shortcut your learning curve without finding out years later that what you learned is "wrong"
FROM: AJ van Dijk — Chief Instructor Karate & Kobudo, Founder of The Digi Dojo
SUBJECT: How to revolutionise your training, study Karate on a deep fundamental level while having access to actionable key points you can apply to your training straight away.
What do you learn from daily practise, study and research of Karate under Japanese supervision?
I can tell you... A LOT.
And that's what I want to share with you today. What I did the last 20+ years is practising every day and getting feedback from the best instructors in Europe (Ishikawa, Nukina, Sakagami and May).
You'll discover everything I've learned inside my courses in a matter of minutes.
If there's one thing my students have asked throughout the years is where on earth I get all my knowledge.
My training and close relationship with those prominent instructors has obviously helped. As well as my "thirst for knowledge" as Peter May called it.
But the real driver was when Ishikawa sensei passed away back in 2008.
I couldn't give up. And I had to continue his legacy.
It was on my shoulders.
I was already training daily, but then the weight of running 2 Dojo and Wadokai Holland turned everything into a more professional thing...
...Teaching seminars frequently in Holland and internationally
...Re-designing the syllabus based on my experience as school teacher
...Writing the 512 page hardcover "Wado No Michi"
It all turned a wide variety of knowledge and methods into a coherent framework that has now helped thousands of students to practise more effectively.
And that's also why senior instructors tell me that they wish they had "access to the knowledge when they started training".
Andy for example, my student from Germany.
He started to apply the fundamental key points to his training. And every time I saw him again his made amazing jumps in his skill.
He is now able to apply deep skills such as body dropping and compression.
So this works.
Also if your name isn't AJ.
I focus myself (like with all my courses) only on the things that really matter. That means you don't have to fill your training with years of trail and error to find out what works and what doesn't.
I did that for you under Japanese supervision so I could gain experience without going off track or risking bad habits.
I know EXACTLY which key points and methods take your Karate to the next level and how to learn them in a minute.
❌ Forget about spending afternoons digging through your Karate books, only finding "turn left with Gedan Barai"...
❌ Forget about roaming forums and facebook groups where everybody answers your question — keyboard warriors included...
❌ Or spend hours searching on YouTube to not find your answer...
And when you compare 3 instructors, it will only confuse you.
Been there. And done that.
But for you it doesn't have to be this way...
What took me years to discover, is a matter of logging in for you.
Spend your precious time practising in the Dojo, your living room, backyard. Or simply enjoy more time with your family.
Here's why it works:
Knowing the key points and methods that improve your techniques drastically is one of the most important skills that you can get as a Karateka — no matter if you're a student or sensei.
But I see many people that don't practise in an effective way. Often not because they don't want to, but because they don't have access to proper teaching from high ranking instructors.
People think it "takes a lifetime" to master Junzuki.
Good news: it doesn't.
Of course you can always polish your movement, go deeper. More versatile. More efficient.
But that's marginal.
Upgrading your techniques is possible for you too in a matter of no-time compared to what you think it is. And easier than you think too.
And here's the thing:
The only thing you need to master are the principles. The fundamentals of movement so you can practise without doubt it's the correct way. Plus:
Every keypoint-based repetition takes you closer to mastery.
You don't have to wait a lifetime. Or wait for skill to just happen overtime.
You may wonder how you can learn these principles, methods and frameworks. And how you can learn the deep stuff as well as the practical knowledge that I've used for years to get where I am now.
How you can use for your own training what I've taught to thousands of students worldwide. Online and offline.
You discover everything I've learned over the 20+ years under Japanese instruction inside courses such as Ultimate Uke Waza, Keys to Crisp Kata and Advanced Wado Kumite.
Your Pro Licence is thé solution to enjoy your Karate to the max, understand it deeply and witnessing your techniques develop as fast as humanly possible.
You can access direct instruction from close-to-the-source Japanese instructors, practise and research for years on end, visit seminars, travel, teach, write books, hundreds of articles and thousands of videos...
...plus study to become a professional teacher so you know the ins and outs of step-by-step effective learning to combine and optimise every single thing there is to know about Karate training — and then use that for your own training.
Get your Pro Licence where I've done exactly that.
✅ Go all out with a course on a dedicated subject...
✅ Look up the technique you want to work on...
✅ Or press play on one of the many playlists...
You'll discover the key points that move the needle in a matter of minutes so you can practise knowing that every repetition is fun as well as effective.
Your Pro Licence gives you unrestricted access to all Pro Courses, and more...

Here's what other pro's say about the digi dojo:
The search for a comprehensive resource ended...
Coming from a family of Wado karate practitioners we always felt that there was a serious lack of educational material available to Wado students outside of Japan.
Hours spent online looking for resource material on katas, techniques and details regarding on how to execute them correctly fell painfully short. The negative consequence of such lack of information makes learning, understanding and progress in karate, dependent on the short period of time you get to interact with your Sensei at personal level.
As karate has transitioned into a more of a sports and competition oriented model, the time spent on thorough analysis of each technique is lost, thus we see kids blindly emulating the seniors without much attention nor understanding on technique, body mechanics and aesthetics.
The search for a comprehensive resource ended when I stumbled upon AJ's Wado No Michi. It was an All-in-One (albeit a few which he has since added on to The Digi Dojo site) compendium to fill the void of a true reference book. It covers Basics, Pinan & Advanced Katas, Kumite Techniques all with detailed explanations answering the vital questions of Why/What/When/Where and How?
AJ's Video collections on The Digi Dojo complements and completes where "Wado No Michi" fell short due to its limitation as a book.
Personally it has helped me to learn, discover and identify many areas in which I was lacking may it be in Katas, Kihon or Kumite. It also helps me to incorporate learning in the comfort of my own home during by busy work schedules. The magnificent gifts of modern technology, bringing access of this invaluable information on a global scale, and at your fingertips.
I recommend this to all practitioners of Wado, young and old, to sign up and use this invaluable resource and take your karate to the next level.
After years of training...
The second I went Pro I looked up the database and I'm already impressed. Even after years of training I found some tips to improve my Junzuki right away!
It will not only help beginners
The technical information will not only help beginners but act as a reference source for more experienced practitioners as well. You should be proud of your accomplishment.
When I got a glimpse of what The Digi Dojo contains and it's value, getting my Pro Licence was a no brainer...
And it exceeded my expectations.
The Digi Dojo is a great place to get inspiration that I can put into my teaching and my techniques. For example, I now study Meotode and try to implement it as an extension of other techniques.
I've been on many seminars with Sensei Sakagami and Sensei Nukina and learned Kumite Gata which we had little or no experience from before. But there is too much that will be forgotten, so now I use the Digi Dojo to study to check the different forms.
Give it a try. You will not be disapointed.
Setting the Mind in Motion with Every Visit to the Digi Dojo
After looking on the Internet to find information about Wado Ryu, I found The Digi Dojo.
My Pro Licence has provided me with the most comprehensive knowledge gathered at one place on the World Wide Web. Especially because I access to all videos, showing the different techniques, kumites, katas and more.
I think that the idea behind the Digi Dojo is excellent and an invaluable asset for studying and evolve myself and my students in both Wado and karate.
Best Wado-ryu resource
I was looking for a source to improve my martial arts skills and then I found AJ’s book Wado No Michi. All the details help me to understand techniques better and principles deeper.
I like AJ’s precision about anything he demonstrates, his training methods (and his jokes). What is definitely one of the best things is the simplicity. AJ’s ability of teaching hard concept with simple word and pictures helps me to better understand and to improve my skills and also my teaching.
For example Meotode principle. Before I only focused on one hand and took distance after attack (like in kumite competition). And now I use both hands, one hand for a punch, the other hand for controlling the opponent then I can reverse hands to do combination. It allows me to score more easily and make my techniques more effective than before.
The biggest difference between Wado No Michi and other books are the plenty pictures, lot of details for each technique and complete course of Wado in one book. I have many books about martial arts and this is the best about Wado-ryu karate and would therefore definitely recommend this book and AJ’s work to other Karateka.
Great course for mastering the basics!
I have always enjoyed learning new ways to apply the basics of karate. This course definitely did not disappoint!
The new ways to apply the fists were eye opening and the application for kumate was very informative. Because of that, I'll definitely be keeping my mind open to even more ways to apply the basics beyond what I've learned.
This is the first video series that has taught new ways to apply the basics.
I've always looked for new ways and been disappointed. I was cautiously skeptical when I started the series, but I'm glad that I got it and would definitely recommend this series to anyone who wants to study the basics of karate in a new way.
Having a good foundation in the basics of karate is essential, and this series definitely provides that necessary foundation.
It doesn't matter which school you are in
I got my Pro license because I wanted access to all the videos, not just a few or having temporary access.
Even though I'm in Shorin Ryu, it's really useful. It will do me good for sure as this fabulous website contain so much details, regardless to the school you are in.
And it's not just the detailed explananations. AJ is always ready to answer your questions thoroughly and never backs down to take a extra step if necessary.
Don't hesitate if you're thinking to go pro too :)
Should be called the Wado Wikipedia
I had been following Sensei AJ's YouTube channel for a while, and had always wondered how can I learn from this person while being a continent apart. The answer: The Digi Dojo.
What stood out to me from Sensei AJ's videos was his sharp execution of technique, which to me means that he has that rare combination of thousands of hours of practice plus the understanding of the principles at work behind the techniques.
The biggest takeaway for me was that sometimes the smallest detail will have the greatest impact on improving or progressing to the next level of karate training/understanding.
His teaching style allows me to look at karate from a completely different perspective of not just repeating movements endlessly, but to train with a specific purpose in mind. He even encourages that we change that specific purpose between training sessions in order to improve as a whole.
The best example has a not particularly important video regarding Hikite. Sensei AJ said don't focus on your fist, focus on your shoulder and the fist will automatically find itself in the "correct position. And after some practice, by God was he right!
I believe Sensei AJ's content would help Karateka from other styles, not just Wado, because his focus is on principles and natural movement. He even shows Kobudo training and educates how armed training can translate into unarmed training.
And finally, most other publications are limited to their syllabus. Sensei AJ's content is always evolving, and he constantly asks for feedback on what topics to address.
This is not something I see any top-level instructor do.
who this is for — and who is this NOT for?
A Pro Licence is ideal for Martial Artists like you that want to get easy access to the most difficult to come by knowledge so you can train what works. And understand deep stuff more easily.

Plus: I work closely with Shaun Smith.
He's my good friend. Chiropractor. And mentor.
He opened my eyes to knowledge that we Karateka desperately need, but that has never been part of "standard" Karate.
Shaun continues to teach me loads of things that helped me get certified from credible sources in the physical therapy realm such as Functional Movement Systems and Triggerpoint.
And above all: understand the human body better. I allows me to optimise my own training — and share it with you.
Now before you think this all sounds too perfect:
Over the years, I practised a countless amount of hours. Invited the best of the best for private seminars. Travelled internationally. Purchased programs. Trained more. Experimented.

do you still have questions?
Here's an answer list to the most common questions that I get about the course:
Q — Is this a subscription?
A — No. The price is one-off so you'll have lifetime access. Sakagami sensei said: "I love Martial Arts, but you are crazy about it". So rest assured I'm not quitting anytime soon.
Q — I am not in JKF-Wadokai. Is this for me?
A — Yes. It's even for you if you don't practise Karate. Although most is based on Wadokai or it's the exact curriculum, it contains fundamentals that are universal. Gravity is true for everybody. That said, if you're looking for pure style stuff and you do Shotokan, you should not get a Pro Licence. If you want to study Karate more deeply, this is the place to be.
Q — There's plenty on Youtube, why should I get this?
A — There's plenty on Youtube, but it's not coherent and designed to help you. Youtube can be a great source of entertainment, but if you're looking for keys and methods that help you progress your Karate this is the place. Has Youtube helped you so far?
Q — I don't think I have enough time to watch everything, should I get this?
A — You don't have to watch everything. It's not like a traditional VHS or DVD where you're entertained for 30 minutes. Simply pick the topic you want to work and go to the article or video that you need for your training tomorrow.
Q — Do I get access to everything right away?
A — Yes. All Pro courses and bonuses are unlocked the second you jump on board.
If you want to access in-depth knowledge that matters and revolutionise your training, you need a reliable source.
Regardsless of your skill or age: with your Pro Licence you have access to largest database on the planet with contents taught by a handful of instructors that know them.
- If you've ever wanted to know how deep Karate really is...
- If you've ever wanted to know how to get skills as sharp as the Japanese...
- If you've ever wanted to know the correct way of performing techniques that are also effective...
By all means: get your Pro Licence.
It's my ongoing life's work that has helped thousands of Karateka worldwide to mythbust nonsense details and practise what works.
You have 2 choices now, and only 1 is logical.
