Congratulations to our Little Pandas who graduated this week!! Everyone did really well.

Our next session is a Renshu (practice) session, which gets going next Wednesday. We look forward to seeing you there!

[03/08/19]   It may be snowing outside, but the Dojo is open for classes this evening. Please drive safely out there!

We had an excellent time at Master Class with Master Hidy Ochiai this past weekend. There were over 100 Wa-shin Ryu Black Belts in attendance!

We're already looking forward to next year, when we expect to have even more black belts from Virginia represented!

[02/20/19]   SCHEDULE UPDATE: In consideration of our little ones’ safety, we have rescheduled today's Little Panda's class for Saturday at 9:00AM. We will still have All Ranks class tonight at 6:15pm.

If you do venture out for class tonight, please stay safe on the roads. We hope you've been having a great snow day ❄️!

[02/01/19]   The Dojo is open for all classes tonight! It was snowier than we thought it would be today, but the parking lot and sidewalks are plowed and salted.

Come get your training in before having a nice, warm Friday night inside!

[01/29/19]   Due to the bad weather and potentially dangerous road conditions, we have decided to cancel all classes this afternoon.

We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to seeing you in class tomorrow!

We had a fantastic New Year's Celebration with Master Ochiai this past weekend! Ever since we opened our doors in 2014 we've wanted to host this event, and with our new space we finally have a place large enough.

There was a training and lecture with Master Ochiai, followed by a Japanese themed lunch with treats, a gift for all attendees, and a three chances to win one of Master Ochiai's Sumi-e calligraphies!

This was the first of many to come. Thank you to all who attended. And, if you missed it, make sure you join us for it next year!

We have a very long overdue CONGRATULATIONS to Michael on his promotion to Junior Black Belt over the summer!! We're sorry for the late recognition!

You have come a long way over the years and are now a model student. We are so very proud of your hard work, dedication, and commitment to constantly improving both your character and physical technique.

We look forward to seeing you grow and continue to progress in your training. Again, congratulations. You are a wonderful example for all the other juniors!

#Budo

Today’s budo arts all evolved from the training systems used by the samurai, which can be seen most in the ancient art of kobudo. But you can even see these practices in the modern arts of kendo, judo, karate, and more.

[11/21/18]   Holiday Schedule Reminder:

We have both Little Pandas at 5:00 and All Ranks class at 6:15 today. We are closed Thursday through Sunday and reopen for all classes on Monday, November 26.

Have a wonderful holiday weekend!

CONGRATULATIONS Scarlett on your promotion to Junior Black Belt!!

You've worked very hard over the years, and you've shown a tremendous amount of patience and perseverance. We are so proud of you and your accomplishment!

Remember, Black Belt is just one of many milestones along the path of self-development. Keep doing your best and keep a "fresh mind" as you continue your traditional martial arts education.

Congratulations again! See you in class!

We had a wonderful visit with Master Ochiai at the end of last week. It was a full house!

Thank you Master Ochiai for your continued commitment to your students here in Virginia. We're looking forward to seeing you later in December!

[11/15/18]   ANNOUNCEMENT: All classes are cancelled today due to the continued bad weather and hazardous road conditions. We were hoping to be able to hold classes, but out of concern for safety, we're closing the school for the day.

Please stay safe out there. Osensei Ochiai and Sensei Winkler look forward to seeing everyone on Friday and Saturday!

We're back from the Toyama Ryu Iaido & Hanbo Seminar with Master Hidy Ochiai this weekend and ready for classes this week!

Sadly, we didn't get any pics from the seminar this weekend, so here's one from the Toyama Ryu and Kendo Seminar we had here in VA back in June. Can't wait to hold another of these!

The pictures from our Grand Opening celebration are finally up! It was an amazing, fun-filled weekend that went by too fast.

Thank you to all of our dedicated students, past and present, and the greater Loudoun County community, all of whom made this beautiful, new school possible!

We're looking forward to many, many more years to come!

The History Of The Onna-Bugeisha — Japan's Badass Female Samurai

allthatsinteresting.com Though the depiction of samurai warriors is traditionally male-oriented, the Onna-bugeisha, female samurai existed and were just as fearsome.

We know it's been awhile since we posted, and we apologize for the blackout. It's been a whirlwind since we opened our doors to our new Dojo in June. But, we've got a bunch backlogged from our packed summer that we'll get up here soon!

In the meantime, there was the annual Wa-shin Ryu Tournament in upstate New York this past weekend that some of our students competed in, and we wanted to say CONGRATULATIONS!!! Everyone did so well, with each competitor bringing home at least one medal!!

Unfortunately, we're missing one our competitors, so we'll have a complete photo soon. Congratulations again. We're all very proud of you!

Thank you so much to all our students and their families for their help this weekend getting us moved out of our old school and in to our new one!! It was a great success, and now we’re ready for opening day!

While we’ll be doing more improvements to the school in preparation for our Grand Opening in the Fall, this was a wonderful start to a new chapter for our Dojo. Thank you again for everyone’s help!

The sign is up and the mirrors are installed! It’s official: ALL classes will be held in our new space starting Monday, June 25!

Stay tuned, there is more work to be done in the next week and a half. It’s an exciting and busy time! #HidyOchiaiKarate #karatenova #ashburnkarate #WashinRyu #ashburnmartialarts #traditionalkarate #traditionaljapanesemartialarts #karate #martialarts #budo

The coat rack is done and the wood work in the lobby is getting its final spray! Next up is mirrors and benches and then we’re almost there! #HidyOchiaiKarate #karatenova #WashinRyu #ashburnkarate #ashburnmartialarts #karate #martialarts #budo #traditionalmartialarts #japanesemaetialarts #dojo

[05/26/18]   The Dojo is closed for the Memorial Day Holiday. We'll be back open on Tuesday, May 29 for all classes.

Have a safe and wonderful weekend. See you next week!

The wood floor is finished and now we’re moving towards finishing the rest of the wood work in the lobby! In just a few short weeks, it’ll all be transformed! #nofilter #HidyOchiaiKarate #karatenova #traditionaljapanesemartialarts #ashburnkarate #ashburnmartialarts #karate #dojo #martialarts #budo

The wood floor is down and the sanders are out. It won’t be long now before it’s done! #HidyOchiaiKarate #WashinRyu #karatenova #traditionalkarate #japanesekarate #ashburnkarate #ashburnmartialarts #karate #martialarts

It’s another busy day here at the new Dojo. The finish wood is going down and the entrance to the training floor is taking shape! #HidyOchiaiKarate #WashinRyu #karatenova #ashburnmartialarts #ashburncrossing #ashburnkarate #Dojo #karate #martialarts

The subfloor is just about finished and the finish wood has arrived. By this time next week it should be done! #HidyOchiaiKarate #karatenova #ashburnmartialarts #traditionalmartialarts #Japanesemartialarts

We’ve entered into the next phase of the construction. The wood floor is going down and the finish carpentry has begun! #HidyOchiaiKarate #karatenova #ashburnmartialarts

We had a great Spring Session of Little Pandas! Looking forward to seeing everyone at our Renshu Session starting this afternoon! #LittlePandas #HidyOchiaiKarate #karatenova #karatekids #kidsmartialarts #ashburnmartialarts

We’ve got a bunch of machines in here working on the polishing and staining the floors. Can’t wait to see what it’ll look like once it’s done! #karatenova #HidyOchiaiKarate #ashburnmartialarts #WashinRyu

Training floor is getting painted and the offices are getting insulation. Things are really starting to take shape! #HidyOchiaiKarate #AshburnMartialArts #karatenova #WashinRyu #HidyOchiai #OchiaiLLC #karate #martialarts #traditionalmartialarts #japanesemartialarts #karateashburn

Construction is moving along at a fast pace! Drywall is up on the training floor, the ceiling grid is hung for the offices, and did someone say SHOWERS???...That's right the cut in the concrete floor you see is plumbing for showers, which will be in both the men's and women's locker room!

So, you may have heard...we are MOVING!! Later this Spring, we will be in our brand new, 5,500 sqft. Dojo in Ashburn! It is 4 times larger than our current school, and among many other great upgrades, it will have a traditional wooden floor!

The address is 21140 Ashburn Crossing Drive Suite 150. It's right across from Redskins Park (you can see the bubble from our front door), and just minutes from One Loudoun. They've already got the lights on our training floor up and things are going quickly!

Stay tuned for more updates and photos! And to get all of the latest developments, you can follow us on instagram @hidyochiaikarate_nova or go to our website www.karatenova.com.

[03/21/18]   SCHEDULE UPDATE: All classes are cancelled today. The parking lot for the entire business park has not been plowed nor have any of the sidewalks been treated, so it's not safe at all. We apologize for the inconvenience.

We fully expect to be open tomorrow. Enjoy the rest of your snow day. See you then!

[03/20/18]   UPDATE: We are still open for classes this evening. Stay tuned though as things may change if the weather significantly worsens.

If you do come, please be safe out there!
