Read the BOOK-See the VIDEO! Black Belt Instructor's Manual-DVD

This syllabus was developed by the DOJO-Academy of Martial Arts. This training manual provides a unique and innovative approach to martial arts and self-defense instruction.


There are many instructional videos on the market. But, not everyone has a DVD player. Sometimes you want to look a detail up in a book, but it doesn’t provide enough information on direction or is unclear in its explanation. Here the two are combined. The associated DVD provides a demonstration of how the "kata" or formal exercise is practiced as well as the applications of each technique. A book, for all its detail, cannot adequately show movement. Thus, both are necessary and form a proper unit for study and self-instruction. Or, it may serve as a reference and guide for traditional Dojo training.
