Student

Say hello to karate wearable

We understand your pain

Karate training that lead nowhere is frustrating.

As Karate parents, we created and patented this technology with our son, Shotokan black belt.

How this wearable works

When student puts on the wearables during practice, their moves are displayed and compared to their Sensei's technique. Immediately, they can see how well their punches and kicks match with Sensei on any screen: TV, cell phone, monitor. Karateka can practice anywhere and anytime, in addition to karate classes, and it's like having your Sensei right there with you.

Frequently asked questions

What kind of wearable is it?

It is a system of 4 sensors that you put on your wrists and ankles during training. They can be worn underneath karate gear.

Do KikSense wearables need WiFi?

Yes, wearables need WiFi. But, if there is no internet connection during your training, the feedback is saved for you to view later.

What feedback will I get from wearables?

Wearables compare student's technique to sensei's and display the results on any screen. They also track progress and where the student stands compared to fellow karatekas.

What if my Sensei doesn't want to use technology?

You can still use KikSense wearables. Preset library of techniques is available for you to use. You can track your progress as long as you wear the sensors in training.

How do I know my kicks and punches are done right?

When you put on wearables and begin training, KikSense compares your kicks and punches to the ones that your Sensei saved earlier. The results are displayed on the screen of your choice: TV, laptop, cell phone. You can instantly see, if your move matched with Sensei.

KikSense story

Our son Daniel has been a karateka since he was almost 7 years old. He has 1st degree black belt (Shodan) in Shotokan karate. Through the years, we have seen bored students, overwhelmed coaches, and lack of results.

Hard to believe, but a 12 year old had an epiphany. Daniel came home one evening from karate class and said that he wants to create something that makes karate training fun. Something that will help students advance. Something that will help coaches teach.

As any parent would have done, I dropped everything and began researching :-). No, seriously, the idea intrigued us. We saw the need for technology in karate. There is nothing in existence that would solve boredom, stress, and human error in karate. With Daniel as our ring leader, KikSense was born.

Since then, we patented KikSense wearables. We have been working on KikSense's n-th prototype. And, we are now in Beta testing.
