I joined Nikidokai.com the week it began. In preparing to test for my belt I was able to go through the entire curriculum step-by-step to watch and rewatch the videos.
The instructors in the school perform the videos step-by-step repetitiously so that you can easily understand what they are doing. They explained as they go and give you the mechanics in visual and verbal form so that you understand what is required for each exercise.
They have added classes to the program since moving to the new dojo, and every piece of that is on NWU. So anything that is new if you miss a class you are able to catch up on, or if you’ve already learned it in class, you can fine-tune with precision.
I was able to walk into testing last night with the confidence that I knew what was required to achieve my belt, and the online classes are paramount to that as I was able to study on my own for the weeks leading up to the test. I could watch the videos at any time, go back to them if I had a question about something and it was right there in front of me.
This website is one of the most beneficial and innovative that I have seen for any fitness and/or sport program. My daughter watched me test last night and is now motivated to learn Nikidokai as well. Being a college student and working, she can go to class a couple days a week, and then we can go through the videos together so she will be up to speed when she returns to class. I don’t think there are enough good things to be said about the program!
