Team Robot Dojo was a team predominately from Colorado, with assistance from members in Minnesota, that competed in the second season of Robot Wars: Extreme Warriors and Nickelodeon Robot Wars.

The TeamEdit

Team captain Mike Konshak from Colorado designed and built two robots for the show; Propeller-Head and Diskotek. Propeller-Head was entered by Mike and his wife Becky. They were joined by Jacob Holland, a 13-year-old from a family at Mike's church, who drove the robot during its appearance on Nickelodeon Robot Wars.

Diskotek was captained by Mike's motor supplier Norm Domholt of NPC Robotics from Minnesota. Norm was joined by his son Eric, who drove the robot during Nickelodeon Robot Wars, and engineering student Michael Gallaway, for whom Mike Konshak had provided welding on a robot entered in BattleBots.

The two robots enjoyed differing levels of success. Propeller-Head reached the Grand Final of the US Championship in US Season 2 and won the Nickelodeon Mayhem competition, while Diskotek lost in the first round of both competitions.

Team Robot Dojo was one of eight US teams to compete in Nickelodeon Robot Wars with multiple robots. Like several other teams, one of the loanerbots was given to Team Robot Dojo - Humdrum, which competed in the Nickelodeon House Robot Rebellion.
