WHY we're giving it away for free...

Back in '98 I had no money.

But I HAD TO get my hands on Suzuki sensei's "Essence Of Wado Ryu".

I bought the 4-VHS series with my friend to split the costs... when I wanted to see Ohyo Kumite I had to go all the way to his house to swap the videos. Fun memories, but not practical.

Fastforward to 2020, there's a lot on YouTube but...

...really good instructional videos are hard to find
...explanations are limited (or bad because ANYONE can upload a video)
...and by now you know you have to twist your hip 

Not counting the very few good videos on YouTube, It's the same stuff over and over — but not anymore.


Not if I can help it.

I want to provide everybody with knowledge and trainingmethods that only a few top instuctors know. Continuously...

Hi! 👋  

My name is AJ, Founder of The Digi Dojo, Chief Instructor Wadokai Holland and Kenshinkai Kobudo Europe.

I'm on a mission

After 20+ years of training under Japanese supervision (Sakagami, Nukina, Ishikawa, Yokoyama) I started to notice the difference of training directly under a Japanese Sensei VS attending a seminar or not at all. 

As a professional schoolteacher, I felt the knowledge and training methods should not be limited to those lucky enough...

My educated guess?

  • 99% of us don't live nearby a qualified sensei with direct lines to Ohtsuka sensei.
  • 99% of us are not swimming in so much money that travel and free time is not an issue.

Good eduction and access to knowledge should be for everyone.

👊 That's why I took 3 years to write the 512 A4 Page Hardcover: Wado No Michi.

👊 That's why I recorded thousands of videos and share them through YouTube and now even more at The Digi Dojo.

👊 That's why I'm on it 24/7 — I'm even working closely with my Chiropractor to ensure that you're getting access to absolutely everything you can think of.

Through all books, videos and internal seminars I've been blessed to reach thousands of Karateka just like you worldwide. 

But that's not enough. In fact — that's just the beginning...

That's why we are giving away The Ultimate Wadokai Giftbox! 
(full list of contents down below)


  • Wado No Michi sold out to over 20 countries worldwide...
  • We passed 1 Million views on Youtube...

Here's what's inside 👇 

meet aJ

AJ van Dijk is a teacher, Chief Instructor of Wadokai Holland and Kenshinkai Kobudo Europe and founder of The Digi Dojo.

He is a published author of several books such as Wado No Michi, Wadokai Karate Special Edition and Kata Applications and Analysis.

AJ has 20 years of training under Japanese supervision that lead to his broad and in-depth knowledge which he can apply. You'll notice by his clear explanations and demonstrations. That, plus his effective Taining Methodes allow you to learn faster.

Because of his diligent work, AJ has become internationally regcognised Wado and Karate instructor to beginners, advanced students and instructors - reaching Karate enthusiasts worldwide through internet and up close in person at international seminars.

AJ’s mission is to help Karate students and instructors understand and implement simple yet extremely powerful Key Points and Training Methods that can unlock shortcut-like growth and get you to the next level without wasting time, money or theoretical overwhelm.

His unique and holistic approach combines traditional training with cutting-edge training methodology leveraging fun and illuminating experiments with effective and straight forward Training Methods.

When not training, teaching or being busy with Karate, AJ is interested in science, enjoys spending time with his wife and kids and binge-watching Netflix series while secretly still thinking about Karate.

I really liked you don’t just do techniques on AJ sensei’s count and get general phrases like “better your hip movement” or so (which I see at other seminars). AJ teaches key points, watches your techniques and then he advances on those key points interactive. 

I would like to join again a seminar with AJ and his crew, not only for the results, but also to just talk again with all of them. They didn´t play a role, they were authentic.
