The Purpose

The nice feeling of training together

The idea to this online dojo came from requests from students travelling a lot, spending time in hotel rooms wanting to train. There are many options for training apps etc but not a serious one where you can have your daily exercise and at the same time keep yourself on track with your karate techniques... Here we are.

We do not claim that what we do is the correct way, but technically we strive to be as true to all that we have learned over the years from Higaonna Sensei and all the Seniors of IOGKF. 

Please use the videos as much as you like in your daily training routine. Let yourself be guided through a high intensive training session, train a specific kata or get inspiration for how to build up your own training drills.

The concept

The words of Higaonna Sensei

The idea to the name of this online dojo is "stolen" from hearing it said by Higaonna Sensei during many a training session in Higaonna dojo, Okinawa; the way to learn karate is to:

- LOOK at your sensei and other seniors

- LISTEN to your sensei and other seniors

- SWEAT - train again and again -
