In 1979, founder Shihan Lonny Riddle created Do No Kai Martial Arts Temple with the goal of teaching and furthering the path of the warrior in a traditional environment. Shihan Riddle has been practicing and teaching martial arts for over 50 years, more than 30 of which have been at Do No Kai Martial Arts Temple.

Shihan Riddle owned and operated The Imperial Martial Arts Academy in Longmont, Colorado from 1973 to 1978. This highly successful commercial dojo offered comprehensive training in Zen Bei Koku Bushikan Ju-Jitsu, Kobu-Jitsu and Wing Chun Kung Fu. Before that period, Shihan was a high school coach, physical education instructor and mathematics teacher for sixteen years.
