  • 6 Things to Look at When Choosing a Martial Arts School

    6 Things to Look at When Choosing a Martial Arts School

    When choosing a martial arts school, use the same approach you would when choosing an educational school for a child. Just because the curriculum is punches and kicks instead of math and English, doesn’t mean that modern-day scrutiny of professionalism, teachers, and facilities does not apply. Being a black belt, no matter the level, or a champion at numerous competitions doesn’t guarantee that someone is a good teacher or knows how to run a business. Just because someone has achieved a high level of ability doesn’t mean you’ll get your money’s worth from your lessons. Here are six things to look at when choosing a martial arts school: 1. Facilities

    Online Help

    Everyone wants to get to the coveted Black Belt, yet the truth is only a very few people ever actually earn the rank of Black Belt. The problem is all too often the student cannot remember all the different techniques required to pass the belt exams. To assist all of our members we here at Keishidojo are a member of the Martial Arts Unlimited Association (MAUA). This is actually something that I (JD Olsen) have used to assist me in attaining several of my black belts with my various instructors. Something that makes the MAUA unique is the fact that people with an active account gain access to an online video vault. The vault contains videos for the MAUA broken down by program and by ....

  • The Long Road

    The Long Road

    The road to a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or BJJ Black Belt for me has been a really long windy road. It all started back in 1999 when I began training under Martial Arts Unlimited (formally Progressive Martial Arts) Instructor AJ Weimer. At the time the program was termed Jiu-Jitsu Submission Fighting. The original curriculum had a lot of striking and would basically be an MMA program by today's standards. It had all the elements necessary of a Jiu-Jitsu or BJJ program on the ground, although there was a lot of emphasis on Boxing and Muay Thai too. In 2003 I earned my Black Belt in that program (I was in an accelerated program due to military relocation). I had these workout sheets to complete ....

  • Jeet Kune Do

    Jeet Kune Do

    The term jeet kune do was coined and put into use in 1967 by Bruce Lee in an attempt to put a name to his martial expression. Lee wrestled with putting a name to his art as he constantly veered away from any type of crystallization (and thereby limitation) of its essence, however, the simple need to refer to it in some concrete way won out and jeet kune do was born. The idea of intercepting is key to jkd, whether it be the interception of your opponent’s technique or his intent. The basic guiding principles are: simplicity
    , directness
    and freedom
    (the form of no form). The techniques and philosophies of JKD can be applied to real combat as well as challenging life situations. Jeet ....
