How does Nikidokai Worldwide University | Mix Martial Arts Work?
Nikidokai Worldwide University | Mix Martial Arts training course follows the true path in reaching your Martial Arts goal.

We will actively update, add and communicate with our students. Providing new techniques, tips and advisement for our Student Members.

Our Belt Testing Format will be exactly as if you were standing right in front of Hanshi, Sensei or our Senpais for judging.

There are hundreds of online training courses that simply sends you a DVD and you upload your test video for testing and they let you download a certificate or eMail you one. NWU|MMA will not skimp on tradition. You will video conference live and testing will be live for judging. You will receive a Signed by Hanshi, Certified Authentic Belt Certificate and Belt for your rank. As long as your a Student Member of Nikidokai Worldwide University | Mix Martial Arts, you have unlimited access to your Current Modules and Units as well as access to bonus content and secret techniques. This enhanced feature that we provide allows you to go back and refresh what you have learned and learn any new additional content we’ve added or enhanced.

What are the Benefits of an eLearning Course?
For over 30 years, Hanshi Nico has trained an estimated 15,000 or more students. Thousands of these former students may not have achieved their full Nikidokai Black Belt status due to life events. Moving to a different state, parents having new jobs requiring a move or simply having a schedule that makes attending a class weekly difficult to impossible.

Many of these students have expressed their desire to continue their Nikidokai education with Hanshi Nico but are unable to. With NWU, it’s now possible to do so. We created Nikidokai Worldwide University | Mix Martial Arts as a way for former students, as well as NEW students to learn and master the art of Nikidokai remotely. With NWU eLearning Course you can:

• Study & Practice at anytime, any day.

• Use Airplay to view your courses on your HD Screen at home, bedroom or workout room.

• Access to your courses 24/7. Our NWU Dojo is always open for you.

• You save Time. No need to drive to the Dojo. Your living room, bedroom, garage, even at the park using your iPhone can be your Dojo. “Take The Dojo With You”

• You save money. No need to gas up to drive. No need to pay higher monthly membership fees to help pay for a physical dojo location.

• Since you’ll never miss a class with NWU, there is no catch up days to make up with.

• You study at your own pace and leisure.

How Does Testing Work
