It’s like having AJ in your own room as a private instructor.

AJ shares knowledge that is next to no other instructor that you have seen on the internet.

The videos compliment all aspects of the e-book, with easy teaching methods & a very articulate teacher no other than Sensei AJ van Dijk. It’s like having AJ in your own room as a private instructor.

The perfect step

AJ's explanations are very clear about karate and techniques, so this book in combination with the videos will be a perfect step to do Karate in a correct way.

Very useful book

In Sri Lanka our Karate technical knowledge is low..This book has practical pictures and very clear explanations so it's very useful to overcome that situation.

A picture paints a thousand words but...

The book and videos will give you plenty to explore because it has plenty of bullet points and good explanations.

As they say, a picture paints a thousand words but a video will give you more.

THE Home Training Series

If you want your karate to improve overnight, this book and videos are a must. One of my weakest techniques is uraken, and after practicing one day with this series, I feel I have improved my uraken more than in the last year of dojo practice. Instant results!

Another example: in the video "Fall-In Junzuki", its like having AJ next to me translating the difficult to decipher 'move from tanden'. Instead of that clasically obscure explanation, he turns it into easy to understand ideas like "push your hips while maintaining posture".

Eureka moments

The book gives you guidance, the videos give you confirmation, almost like "eureka" moments.

No matter what style you are studying at present, it's so easy to adapt to suit your own techniques and form, and then add some more of your own.

Excellent book for training in a confined space

When I checked what this book covered, the first things I noticed were the wide range of karate moves and how they are broken down into steps.

I feel very confident about these methods because the text explains why a move is to be done a certain way or what precisely it is that you are looking to achieve.

When practicing at home it's easy to get stuck in a rut of doing the same thing and the ebook provides variety. You can also mix and match to make a training session as long or as short as you want.

Unique training aid

The videos help the reader to avoid any confusion with the direction of the techniques and the author is very crisp in his movements and does them perfectly.

This would not only be a great supplement for those who train alone, but for a lesson on using technique in crowded spaces. Techniques are only useful if we can make them work in all situations and surroundings.

37 years a studying karateka! 58 yrs old!

In these difficult times this book made me re focus and give me ideas on different ways to study. And to be honest, all contents met and exceeded. It has opened my mind to other square metre options.

Essential tool for serious Wado Karateka

This book contains lots of key points that are at your fingertips and you can train straight away. I would recommend training along with the video series first though as the book acts as a great refresher.

The bits that emphasise momentum, timing, and the advanced skills to generate power exceeded my expectations, even though I'm following AJ from quite a few years.

I can go from one to the other very easily as the book and videos complement each other very well. The book is especially good if you want to train effectively but are limited with time.

Getting The Square-Meter Series will improve your karate no end technically and help you relax. They will also motivate you to train more, as there is so much to study and improve on. I watch and I read, then I want to do !

Finally...

Finally a book and videos that addresses practical home training.. For example, the methods on generating power without stepping forwards are simple yet effective.

A true guide with creative views

The E-book offers a true guide to basic forms. The creative views and explanations within the e-book are easy to follow and packed with all the information you’ll need.

It gets you to question exactly how you move, why you move in that way and produces a feeling of satisfaction when you realise how it all comes together.

Right into the methods

The book goes right into the methods, rather than rehashing history or techniques. The author assumes that the reader already has experience with karate.

The pictures are clear and the instructions are easy to follow. The author is very crisp in his movements and does them perfectly.

This would not only be a great supplement for those who train alone, but for a lesson on using technique in crowded spaces. Techniques are only useful if we can make them work in all situations and surroundings.

I learn by watching and doing

The videos were very helpful for me to make sure I was doing the moves correctly. I learn by watching and then doing so now, when I go back to the ebook, I have a picture in my head of what the moves look like.

If you're short on space but want to get stuck in to some real practice at home then the ebook combined with the videos will give you lots of guidance and ideas for training at home.

My students already responded with a very positive attitude towards the content

This book is different from other literature I have studied for Karate training, techniques and theory because the illustrations and reasoning are very clear and precise which enables both the senior student and novice alike

The contents of the information exceeded my expectations because AJ and his team have put together information both from knowledge gained and information gathered from other masters and instructors and home the extra mile to produce and relay the information back to the reader clearly which in my opinion has not been achieved before in the martial arts literary field.

The videos complement the book because some students thrive on being able to visualise the technique from video and watch and re-watch the videos until they start to get a better understanding of what they are attempting to learn. Some students cannot learn from black and white reading materials they need a bit more which is where the videos come in .

I have already recommended the book/videos to my students and they have already responded with a very positive attitude towards the content which is very helpful.

Find those missing links

The book is a good quick reference if you feel you're missing something in your technique. It's is easy to access with plenty of tips, good explanations and good photographs.

Next to no other

AJ has been very thorough in demonstrating & explaining the techniques. The text was very clear on what to expect when movements are done correctly that also give incredible insights on what to expect when done correctly..

I believe anyone will benefit from AJ's training methods & the in-depth study that he has put here online through the years of hard work and the studying of the great masters that have (come on gone).

Wado in lockdown

Training in a small area will be new to many people and is essential in these unprecedented times. The book and videos shows how to make the most of limited space and when I saw the book I straightaway noticed the ease, clarity and effectiveness of the drills.

AJ Sensei is a world class instructor. His teachings are always thoughtful and have meaning and purpose. They will increase your understanding of principles and techniques. You will not be disappointed.

Back the e-book up with the online video series

AJ has many teaching methods, he presents himself well and communicates in a way that is easy to understand, follow and practice.

Back the e-book up with the online video series and a key to The Digi Dojo and you have a world of knowledge available 24/7. Get the videos too, you will not be disappointed.
