Hidy Ochiai Karate of Northern Virginia

We're the area’s premier traditional Japanese martial arts school, showing people of all ages how to improve their mind & body to become their very best!

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!

We had a full house for Master Ochiai’s last class this month! Thank you for another wonderful visit. We can’t wait until next time! #HidyOchiaiKarate #HidyOchiai #karatenova #WashinRyu #traditionalkarate #traditionalmartialarts #karate #martialarts #dojo

Martial arts can improve your attention span and alertness long term – new study

"What we and other researchers have found is that their practice is one of those rare crossovers that helps significantly improve the brain just as much as the body"

theconversation.com Martial arts help boost both brain and body.

Thank you Master Ochiai for another wonderful visit last week!

We all learn so much each time from your tremendous wisdom, knowledge, and experience. We can't wait until your next visit!

Also, remember that even though schools are closed today, the Dojo is open for class tonight. We'll see you then!

Japan Information & Culture Center, Embassy of Japan

Another great video from the Japan Culture Center!

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.

Despite the extreme cold and snow, we had a wonderful time this weekend at Hatsu Geiko with Master Ochiai. One of our students, Emir, even won the raffle for Master Ochiai's calligraphy!

Thank you Osensei for all the wisdom you shared with us to help guide us in the New Year. We look forward to seeing you again soon here in Virginia!

Study: Martial arts can reduce aggressive tendencies in youth

While much more scientific research is needed in this area to demonstrate what we, as traditional martial arts professionals, already know martial arts can do for children (and adults), the most interesting take-away is this:

“According to the Bar-Ilan study, previous research clearly shows that traditional martial arts, where common themes of repetitive movements, controlled behaviors, and respect are key, are most beneficial in reducing anger and violent behaviors, as opposed to modern martial arts, which in fact can actually increase aggression.”


israelnationalnews.com Researchers at Bar-Ilan University find that traditional martial arts training may be effective as a rehabilitative intervention.

[10/21/17]   REMINDER: The Dojo will be closed today, because Sensei Winkler will be at National Headquarters in New York attending the annual Instructor Training with Master Ochiai.

Have a great weekend, and we'll see you in class on Monday!
