About Richard

The Brain Dojo online platform has been created as both a 'stepping stone' to starting Martial Arts training and a supplement for existing Martial Arts practitioners. It is also a great place to get some basic safety training (what is often referred to as self defence).

The platform is designed to help both those individuals interested in Martial Arts training but perhaps unsure, nervous or not feeling confident enough to visit a local school and those people who already train in the Arts but would like some extra input and training ideas. 

Brian Dojo also has lots of information which will benefit individuals who are looking for a resource to enable them to become physically more healthy, emotionally stronger and interpersonally more resourceful, yet have no interest in Martial Arts or safety training. 

It was initially created by Richard Vince (8th Dan) to provide people who wanted more Information, detail and substance than they could pick up in group training sessions with some extra information.


It has been developed from that initial concept with the help of Maisie Emmerson (4th Dan), to provide more and more information relating to many aspects of physical, mental and relationship training.

Richard began training in Martial Arts in 1978 and went on to represent England and Gt. Britain at 19 international Karate events, before switching to Kickboxing and going on to win British, European and World Kickboxing titles in the Super Heavyweight category.  

Richard has, since 1980 been running a full time Martial Arts academy. During that time, he has come to understand that Martial Arts Tuition (Karate, Kickboxing, Muay Thai and other formats) are fantastic vehicles to enable students to learn so much more than simply the physical techniques. Martial Arts is, for many, the vehicle to develop a strong mind, a fit healthy body, resourceful thinking and great interpersonal skills. With Brain Dojo he has provided a way for individuals to become aware of and master those skills.

Richard provides 2 online classes live (and on demand) each week. 

1. Shield training - these classes cover many, many aspects of how to think about and deal with potentially dangerous situations. From simple unwanted but not dangerous attention to potentially life altering scenarios. Shield training assumes the students begins with zero or close to zero knowledge and builds from there. 

2. 'Added Extras' - a real mix of combat technique, training drills, fitness workouts and applications that will be of interest to many martial arts practitioners.


Both of these classes are included in the monthly and yearly memberships. 


Richard has also spent much of his time creating ground breaking training equipment, following a strict path of innovation, rather than imitation.

Our 'Superstrike Pro' and 'Supercoach Pro' products are easy to use, affordable and that can be used “Anytime, Anywhere” whilst offering the maximum possible workout for the user. These can be ordered from this site. 

Our Products

Here at RichardVince.com, we have two revolutionary products for which we are most well known.

Both of these products are inflatable and, despite first impressions, are extremely tough, durable and effective training aids.

We believe in the design and manufacture of products that are easy to use, affordable and that can be used “Anytime, Anywhere” whilst offering the maximum possible workout for the user.

Each product has been designed, sometimes over many years, keeping in mind the different age groups and fitness abilities of the users. Some want to train to boost confidence in the comfort of their own home prior to joining a martial arts club, some to sustain their level of training at home or whilst travelling, others are already experienced martial arts enthusiasts looking for a different training option, or looking for something to add to their already existing training plan.

What Makes us Different?

These revolutionary new training tools make training possible in almost any location. Our inflatable kick/punch bag (Superstrike Pro) will fit onto most door frames, small trees and posts to give you a durable striking target. 

Carry it with you when you run or travel, unpack it and inflate in seconds. Workout wherever you are with minimal hassle. 

100% replacement or money back guarantee if you are not delighted with these products.

Our Supercoach Pro is just as easy to carry around with you - ideal for travelling fighters and coaches!
