Hear From GMAU Students

I've studied martial arts previously, starting in kung fu and eventually doing MMA for awhile. GMAU was the first time I've got to do more traditional and formal training while earning ranks in a martial arts. I chose shotokan karate because I was always interested in learning karate. The set up is wonderful. It's super convenient for people like me who have a child/children and a job. I can train on my own time at my own pace. The videos are really well done with tons of tips and examples on how to properly preform your technique, as well other students are able to comment and commune back and forth so that we help each other along the way. Most importantly for me, is the instructors themselves. I can say with all honesty I have messaged sensei Michael and sensei Jon several times since starting my journey, and they always reply with the best advice they can give. Particularly sensei Jon, who has helped me tremendously on the side with more of the personality, mental and spiritual aspect of martial arts. He's really took the time to reply with video messages and help me get my mind more at peace while I work on my body to further assist me to one day being a karate master myself. GMAU is a great thing for those interested in martial arts but may not have time to devote to local classes

Shaun Adams
Shotokan Karate Student

The GMAU has been a fantastic fit for me. It has allowed me to further my love for martial arts at my own pace with the highest quality instruction. I absolutely love it. Instructors are always positive and supportive. I plan to be a life long student of martial arts, and I believe this is the perfect place to do it.

Dustin Richison
GMAU Student

Greetings to all readers/to whom it may concern,

This is a review of GMAU's online Shotokan course. My assessment is generally good. As a medical employee who works evening or night shift, my ability to train at a conventional dojo is very limited, so I had to find an alternative form of training. GMAU is excellent for those who, like myself, may not have the schedule or access to a conventional martial arts school. In addition, the Senseis provide interesting new content, and strive to make the whole course feel like an actual training experience in a class room.

There is great merit in that. The material itself seems to be, to me, a very traditional Japanese style of karate. If you are interested in traditional arts, and a more interesting exercise than just running or doing sit-ups, I would recommend GMAU's program.

Nathaniel Jason Binkley
Shotokan Karate Student

I have been enrolled into Shotokan Karate for the last month or so, and it has completely changed my entire outlook on life. I am a former Combat Veteran and this has helped tremendously with my PTSD. I am more focused and have less anxiety. The course is perfect for my schedule with a wife and two sons, full-time job, and working on a Master's degree. I love the fact that I can review lessons whenever and wherever on my mobile phone. I have taken and passed my first belt test, and the feedback was very helpful. I am currently working towards my 8th Kyu Yellow Belt. Everyone has been very helpful and encouraging.

Al Roucher
Shotokan Karate Student

The title of US Marine was not given to me, I earned it (man oh man, how I earned it).
I was not given my degree in higher education, that I earned.
My professional license was not handed to me, I earned it.

Through years of work, sweat, dedication, and time commitments for my personal growth balanced with commitments to family and work life, my impending black belt achievement through the GMAU Shotokan Karate program will not be handed to me, I will have earned it. Proudly.

Sensei Jon and Sensei Jonas (and all the GMAU instructors) are incredible teachers. They are supportive in my journey as a karateka and encouraging in my personal growth and dedicated to the art.

Before committing to a martial arts journey, I did a ton of internet research. I found numerous dojos within driving distance of my home. Each dojo had its posted schedule, average cost and particular style of martial arts (mostly TKD, Krav Maga and BJJ, all excellent in their own right). However, their schedule did not match my schedule. Their long term cost was an extraordinary burden to my budget. And their style of martial arts was not exactly what I wanted at this time.

Joining GMAU Shotokan Karate has allowed me to walk the path of the peaceful warrior in my own time, at my own pace and in my chosen space.

Of the many paths I have walked (and continue to walk) throughout my life, I can say, with confidence, GMAU is an incredibly positive choice for me. The course is affordable. The classes are bite sized, in depth and easy to follow. The support is phenomenal.

The path I chose is laid before me. The most difficult step is the first one. Even though this is an online program, I know I do not walk this path alone. The GMAU community of students are wonderfully supportive and encouraging. My black belt achievement will not be the end of the journey, it is a starting point to a wider path. And, I am having FUN!
