What are the basic differences between the mindset of a budoka and a Karate sports athlete? What tools do I need to develop to be a professional Karate Instructor? What do I need to become a high performance athlete? What should I do to have my own dojo?
To answer these questions it is necessary to have a holistic view of the martial art. We must understand that just as Karate evolved after the 2nd World War and expanded around the world, today it also gave a leap forward. The inclusion of Karate as an Olympic sport will definitely contribute to the growth of the martial art, but the question is: at what cost? Will traditional Karate disappear?
Those who have had the privilege to be educated to understand the balance between both visions of Karate, the difference between both mindsets, the budoka and the sports athlete, have a responsibility to share that knowledge in an authentic way, so the essence of the martial art can be preserved while the number of its practitioners increases.
Another issue that generates many questions and concerns is how to achieve a sustainable dojo. This is a great challenge for instructors and investors because they must take into account important aspects of management, marketing, communication and accounting, which most of the time are skills that are not well understood and therefore the challenge becomes much larger.
So the purpose of DojoFi is clear, we want to professionalize Karate on and off the tatami with a 360° view.
Dojo = place where one embarks in search of the way
Fi = faithful/loyalty in Latin.
DojoFi will develop the following content:
- High performance physical and technical training
- Mind Training
- Dojo Management
- Education for children
- Budo and philosophy of Karate Do
