Dojo Exercises Overview

These exercises are great in many ways. One of the benefits is that there is no need for purchasing expensive gym equipment.  More importantly, these exercises are purely functional since athletic performance is about moving our own body weight. All suggested exercises can be done in the dojo (with a partner) and no weights (just body weight).   Chest: Lateral Push Up Jumps Lateral Push Up Walk with Partner Push Up Partner Walk with Claps Partner Push Ups Heavy Bag Throwing Heavy Bag Throwing with Push Ups   Bizeps: Biceps Pulls   Back & Lats: Partner Lats Pull   Triceps: Triceps Dips with Partner   Shoulders: Partner Assisted Handstand Walks   Legs: Backwards Lunges Forward Lunges Partner Leg Press 1 Partner Leg Press 2 Partner Squats Lunge Pattern “No” Lunges Balance Squat forward One Leg Squatting Partner Leg Hops Spider Walk Yoko Geri Strengthening Exercise Mae Geri Strengthening Exercise   Plyometric Chest & Hamstring Drill   Gluteus Maximus: Butt Kick outs to the Rear Butt Kick outs to the Side Butt Lifts   Core: Core Arms Up & Down Core Holding Holding Side Rises Core Holding Core Superman Push Up Clapping Hands Game   Abs: Abs Stand Ups Abs Side to Side Feet Touch Abs Side Crunches Abs Lateral V-Ups Abs Frog Style     Other Exercise (full body, reaction, arms etc):  Tennis Ball Reaction Drill
