wondering what the classes are like?
Here are some examples...
you get lifetime access to class 1-10!
#1—Sonobazuki, Uraken & Junzuki including the #1 step-by-step method to learn how to move from your centre.
#2—Keri & Renrakuwaza with methods that promote better motor control by changing only one thing from your regular basics... (but make it twice as effective)
#3—Heavy bag training (that you can do in the air too) with "AJ value adds" + biggest "point your knee in the direction mistake" revealed (and how you should use that to your benefit).
- including advanced Uraken to Haito Meotode combination
#4—Pinan Nidan. With Key Points you NEVER heard before (100% sure) - especially the one that truly sharpens your Nukite.
#5—Gyakuzuki. I'm lifting the veil of The Training Method Trinity and connect this to one of the best methods I learned from Nukina sensei.
#6—Sai Kihon 1-10. You'll discover Karate versions as well so you can practise along even if you don't have Sai (you'll especially love the Kake Uke + One-Inch Punch method).
#7—Jitte. Including the the "final" answer about opening your front foot when you step forward...
#8—High Pace Basics. Discover how to build your training WITHOUT a warm-up as you squeeze in the important exercises in between of your variety-on-repeat training.
#9—Nunchaku. Join the fun and find out how to catch, strike and control Nunchaku. Step by step with plenty of high-pace repetitions.
#10—Jion. Easy enough to follow if you're new to the Kata. And packed with gems that even senior instructors can use to improve their techniques.

What are the hologram series?
They’re Full HD, 30 to 60 minute follow-along Karate classes instructed by Wadokai Holland's Chief Instructor, AJ van Dijk. You'll you’ll be pushed to do proper practise, as if you're back in the Dojo 👊
And since it's pre-recorded in the studio, you don't have to worry about a failing livestream connection, crappy audio or low quality video so you can focus on your training.
here are a few examples (full iist below)
Techniques like Junzuki and Jodan Uke require refined timing. Just repeating the Kata won't help too much, so during Kata training we 'sidestepped' and did this method. By using Shizentai you maximise focus on the objective. Simple. Clear. Effective.
Speed and power often is considered to come from hip twisting. And perhaps you're aware of shoulderblade movement. Still, that is "internal". You need to combine that with "external" forces like gravity. This method highlights using momentum.
Rohai has difficult movement where opposite leg, arm and body rotation and dropping are all combined. An effective way to improve your techniques is to isolate and practise that seperately before coming back to the complete movement.
"Isolating" and "Sidestepping" are strategies to improve your techniques faster. Similarly, you can highlight one embusen, or one movement, and then patch the Kata back together. This works best with ONE key point in mind.
