  • We Made It!!!

    We Made It!!!

    We made it!!! I was not sure just how this year would end like I am sure many of you all were. But nevertheless, here we are in the last few weeks of this wacky, wonky year. This year has had a lot of ups and downs for a lot of us. We are incredibly grateful for all our members, especially those that stuck it out with us during the rough lock-in months. We have had a lot of changes this year, we raised the floors in the main dojo, we upgraded our lights to energy-efficient LED lights, we moved the Pro Shop to the front, and we have launched more new shirt designs this year than in any other year Keishidojo has been in business. We are excited for 2021 as we hope ....

  • Sword and Dagger Training

    Sword and Dagger Training

    One of my favorite things to train from the Filipino Martial Arts system is Espada Y Daga or Sword and Dagger. In this week's Technique Tuesday video Guro JD shows several different options to a single six-count drill. Whether you decide to use the figure 8 series, the abanico pattern or even a redondo drills to get to six strikes with a sword and knife are pretty simple. Now in this video JD substitutes a stick for the sword, but the technique operates the exact same. We hope you enjoy the video and don't forget to give it a like, share it with someone, and as always please subscribe to the channel as it really helps us out. One last thing, we hit 500 subscribers!!! Thank you, everyone. ....

  • June Newsletter

    June Newsletter

    Happy June everyone, we made it to the halfway point for the year. For many of us the years started off pretty well, then took a crazy turn and for the last few months has been, well, different. We had to skip a promotion cycle, learn online classes and how to navigate that world in a whole new way and even find ways to get you all the services you have come to love from us. Now that school is officially out and summer is upon us, and although we have not been given the green light to completely re-open, I do feel fortunate to be at the state we are at. Several states are just allowing classes to resume (today) in the limited capacity we started weeks ago, and other states have ....

  • History of Keishidojo

    History of Keishidojo

    To tell the story of Keishidojo, we must first go back a bit. In May 1999, Sensei JD arrives in Japan for his dream assignment for the Air Force and is determined to learn Aikido like Sensei Seagal. After just a few months in the country, JD attends a local Aikido class and was unprepared for how little of his martial arts Japanese would help him in a full class. Getting some help from a few fellow students, yet between the detailed techniques and the language barrier, JD decided to take some language lessons first. Enter Greg, he was a coworker and fellow martial artist. He was taking Aikido on base. Without a doubt, JD went to class that evening and met Sensei AJ Weimer. He started the ....

    CV19 Schedule March 16 - 20th

    Everyone, Until the state makes us close, we will be here for our community. Of course, if you have the ability to keep everyone at home, we highly encourage that, although we also understand not everyone has that option. We are taking every precaution possible to prevent the spread of the virus. We are also putting out videos of each training in order to help out those parents and students that wish to train at home. We have begun a rigorous cleaning process to include wiping down all equipment, the mats after the classes (lunchtime and evening) as well as running our ozone machine every night to purify the air in the gym. Upon entering the gym, we are having each child wash their ....
