The Dojo

The Actor's Dojo

What are we about?

We're here to empower fellow actors to:
1. Significantly increase the odds of achieving their vision of success.
2. Make that journey one of ease and joy. 'Coz — spoiler alert — it's possible.

How do we do this?

We study the best frameworks and practices from sports science, then alchemise these into practical tools to facilitate actor peak performance and holistic well-being.

Essentially, we do a shed tonne of research (so you don't have to) and turn game-changing insights originally intended for athletes into game-changing insights specifically tailored to actors.

Why "Dojo"?

"Dojo" is a Japanese word comprised of (way, pursuit) + (a place). So, at the surface level, "dojo" means a place dedicated to practising a specified pursuit.

At a deeper level (from Joe Hyams in Zen in the Martial Arts):

"A dojo is a miniature cosmos where we make contact with ourselves — our fears, anxieties, reactions, and habits. It is an arena of confined conflict where we confront an opponent who is not an opponent but rather a partner engaged in helping us understand ourselves more fully."
