What do you do if there isn't a well-regarded Dojo where you live?

In addition, complete beginners sometimes feel
a little embarrassed going to a live class at a Dojo when they have no skills...

And, on top of all that, Karate will give you a feeling of accomplishment, help reduce STRESS... and it's A LOT OF FUN!

Karate training is also a great form of exercise that will help increase your level of fitness and boost your metabolism -- so you can become exceptionally fit.

Video Training Offers Some BIG Advantages...

EXTRA NOTE ~ We also have lots of plain text tutorials and articles inside the Dojo

For many Karate students, video training offers a number of key advantages...

~ Video makes learning easy. ANYONE can do it. Whether you're young or old... male or female... big or small... video training makes learning FUN & EASY.

~Video is also better than learning from books, because with video you can see EXACTLY what you're supposed to do. The still pictures in books can't do that.

~If you're brand new to Karate and the martial arts, my video training can serve as a great way to prepare prior to taking live classes in a dojo. Because with video, you can play the videos repeatedly until you fully grasp the technique.

~If you have no other way of training and learning the martial arts, video training is an excellent alternative -- it's extremely convenient. You can train at home, whenever it's convenient for you. It's the next best thing to attending a professional Karate dojo.

~The videos are also a great SUPPLEMENT for those who are already taking classes and training in a professional dojo.

In any case, our Online Karate Lessons will help you learn The Art of Karate.

The Art of Karate is also steeped in philosophy.

  • Endeavor to excel 
  • Seek perfection of character
  • Respect others
  • Refrain from violent behavior
  • Be Faithful & loyal

Our Online Karate Dojo Lets You Learn Karatedo (the way of karate)At Home...

Our online Dojo is open 24/7, so you can practice any time, anywhere, for as little or as long as you like, as long as you have and internet conection!

Our Dojo takes the guesswork out of training. Every belt level is laid out in an easy to follow step by step way, that will enable you to flow through the training and stop at any time, then revisit where you left off, or recap on videos you have already watched.

Are you happy with your physical fitness and weight? If you suddenly found yourself in a threatening situation that you couldn't escape, would you be able to defend yourself or your family?

It’s never been a better time to achieve your goal of Black Belt!

Our online Dojo has every basic (kihon) technique, self defense and fighting (kumite), and all the Shotokan forms (kata).

With correct practice, you will reach new levels of physical fitness, flexibility, control, and energy, with the added bonus of progressing through the belt ranks to the coveted black belt and if you are already an advanced black belt karateka (someone who practices karate), we have advanced tutorials to take your karate to the next level!

“Join Our Online Dojo Today”

Exciting News ~ Our new Dojo is ready and we are hoping to finish the rest of the building work, so our online Dojo members can visit and practice karate with us :)

Questions And Answers

Question 1. Is there a set time between gradings?

There is no stipulated time frame between gradings as many of our members have trained before, some members seem to fast track through the first 3 or 4 gradings.  Our offline Dojo has examinations every three months, but really its all down to the individual, as people progress at different speeds.

Question 2. Will the monthly fee of $19.97 be consistent throughout the programme or will it increase when the limited time offer is expired?

The $19.97/month will be consistent for our current members, but this may increase in the future for new members joining.

Question 3. Is there a grading fee or any other fee that I should know about?

There is no grading/testing fee, it is all included in the $19.97. We do ask our members to get their own karate uniform (gi) and belts, we are also looking at the cost of printed certificates, (please see question 4 regarding certificates). 

Question 4. Will printed certificates be sent to us and if so at what cost if any?

At the moment we have downloadable certificates (example attached), but we are looking at the cost of nice gold foil printed certificates and how much they would cost to post around the world, but these will be purely optional.

Question 5. Do we need to do our grading video in uniform (gi)?

We would prefer our karateka to wear Gi for testing, but this is optional and up to each member.

Question 6. Is there a Dojo patch/badge?

We are having patches designed and once our members have been with us for three months they will get one posted to the address of their choice.

Question 7. Do you have to be fit to join the dojo?

All fitness levels are suitable because you train at home and only do what you feel you can handle, you are in total control, the fitter you get, the more you can put into your karate practice.

Question 8. How much space do I need?

You do not need much space at all, even with the kata, we have a technique where you can practice the whole kata in a five foot square space

Question 9. What if I have injuries or disabilities?

We have members that have injuries and they work around those injuries, we have some members that do not kick and thats fine, they focus more on upper body work.

Question 10. Will I need any special clothing or equipment?

We do like our members to video their exams in a karate uniform (gi), but this is not compulsory. We have a Dojo patch (see question 7) Other equipment is purely optional, as in a punch bag, makiwara (striking board), recommended books, etc.

Question 11. What about the sparring if I train alone?

This is a very good question and one of the hardest things about training at home. One of the most important concepts of karate is Ikken Hissatsu or to finish with one blow. We try and instill this concept in our members by explaining that when blocking and attacking techniques are practiced at speed, they should be executed as if your life depends on it, when you hit the makiwara a full speed, you should not just try to hit it, but break it,destroy it! (obviously after you have executed hundreds of techniques lightly.

Question 12. How long will it take me to reach black belt?

It can accomplished quite quickly, but is entirely down to the individual and also the results can sometimes be very confusing and not make sense at all, let me explain.....If someone is practicing once per week and someone else is practicing three times per week, you would expect the person practicing three times per week to way more advanced after six months, but it depends completely on the attitude of the karateka whilst training, if someone is totally focused and applying the concept of Ikken Hissatsu with all their fast moves and train once per week, they will be way stronger and progress much faster than someone training three times per week, but simply going through the movements with no intent, so it's all down to the attitude of the karateka.

"I Am So Glad I Found Your Website..."

"I am a white belt at my local DoJo but there is not the backup support once you leave the DoJo. Your online classes are a must for anyone wanting to better their training. I am so glad I found your site, being a new member has helped me loads."


"Thank You Immensely"

"I was just looking for some kata videos to help me train on my own at home when I came across yours. I live in Italy so am a bit far from you but I THANK you immensely for uploading your videos and sharing them with the world. They explain basics that every karateka should know in detail."
Cheers from Italy,

Shotokan karate online, is ultimately about the journey, not the destination,

'My 3 small girls should benefit from your videos. They currently are enrolled in Karate, but they still need practice at home, and we need a household sensei to keep them inspired.
Karate, and other disciplines of Martial Arts should be a constant in the schools’ physical education curriculum.
Again, thank you for the gift of your knowledge and expertise." Thank You
