DOJO Press is a fair and honest, business. We do not lie, steal or cheat. We are men of honor. We welcome and salute all martial artists.
DOJO Press is the desktop publishing branch of DOJO-Academy of the Martial Arts,
a division of Yudansha (Black Belt) International. DOJO Press was established by
the friends and fans of Ashida Kim as a way of making available to members of the
DOJO-Academy of martial Arts certain restricted materials and manuscripts that had
not been selected for publication by other means.
example, Master Kim completed work on "The Invisible Fist" ten years ago, but it
was repeatedly rejected. So DOJO Press published this book and sold it for Master
Kim until last year, when Citadel Press also released it, whereupon it was immediately
accepted and has enjoyed great success. But, even there, some selections were
deleted to protect the publisher from liability.
DOJO Press is
an equal opportunity, fair and honest, business. We do not lie, steal or cheat. We do
not delay or hide behind contracts or under-report sales. We are men of honor.
Over the years, our small operation has grown to include a network of associates worldwide, and all because we were willing to
interview any martial artist, regardless of style or lineage. Many of whom had books or
tapes of their own they couldn't get published due to the unwillingness of the industry
The problem is, nobody wants to try anything new.
They all want to stick to tired old formulae they know will work.
That's were we come in. We help the novelist publish his or her idea. A great many creative
people are not given an opportunity to express themselves or their ideas. We let them.
In addition, we serve as a contact agency for schools and martial artists worldwide and as the exclusive agent for distribution of the works of Grandmaster
Ashida Kim. Audio, video, and text.
If you have an idea, we would
like to hear it. If you have a problem, we would like to help. Why ? Because we are a
service fraternity, and this is our mission.
Our company is presently
expanding our operations and we would like any and all who wish to participate in this great
adventure to make themselves known. Good people are hard to find because they are
usually humble and do not push themselves forward. We are here to help. DOJO Press Mission Statement
If you think your Teacher is great, suggest the idea to him of a book or tape. If you are a Teacher,
establish in a text or on tape your technique. Many of our people have remarked on how, years after
a tape was produced, it was the only record of their Sensei's teaching. A legacy, to be passed on to
the next generation. Everyone has a book inside them, waiting to be written down. And, as with the
striving for perfection of a martial artist, it is the writing down of it that is the true lesson, not whether
anyone ever reads it.
