Hear From GMAU Students

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.

I am 9 years old so I train with Dad and I think it is an amazing experience to be a student at the GMAU. I love to learn new things and especially to be able to move forward knowing there is a goal a head, that I actually can reach if I train hard and make a strong effort. The Films (classes and lessons) we watch online are very easy to follow and we can ask questions to the instructor at any time. It is also great to know you can practice at any time of the week so even if you miss a practice you can just train some other day instead. It is just a lot of fun, more kids in my age should try this!

I am enjoying the Taekwondo classes. Mr. Gerrald starts us out from the get go on conditioning, (which I need so much more of). I want to get lots more flexible than I am. I know my age may interfere with that but I am eager to continue learning. I’m more flexible now than three years ago but still not where I’d like to be.

Taekwondo 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!

Sean Robinson
Shotokan Karate Student

My name is Kelly and this is my story:
I started browsing online in search of a good martial arts academy, since I had been training in jiu jitsu, kickboxing, karate and mixed martial arts for some years already. I had also become immensely interested in Krav Maga as a discipline, so I started looking in my area, extending to far and beyond and I couldn't find an appropriate Krav Maga training facility to meet my specific needs.
I continued to browse the internet because I really fancied this new fighting style that I had found. I watched a lot of YouTube videos on Krav Maga and I really wanted to start training Krav seriously.
Then one day I stumbled on the Global Martial Arts University and the Krav Maga home study course. It was exactly what I was looking for. What really attracted me was the method of studying and training with the videos and then filming and submitting ones own video to the instructor in order to grade. I was really impressed because the system was user friendly, allowing for a flexible schedule and it would work perfectly for me.
The only drawback that I had was that, living in a small city in South Africa, I thought that I wouldn't be able to pay for the course since I don't have a credit card. However, Mr. Hodge was really accommodating and he advised me regarding alternative methods of payment, for which I will always be grateful. So I experienced first hand, even before my enrolment, the personal touch that is so important to all of us as students and this has never stopped in all the time that I have been with GMAU as a student.
I have now been with GMAU for almost two years. I am about to grade for my blue belt in Krav Maga and I am really enjoying the videos with instructors Mr. Koppel and Mr. South, whom I respect highly. Mr. Koppel, specifically, is my instructor and he grades my work and gives me feedback, as quickly as possible after my gradings.
Whenever I submit a question or an assignment or a belt grading, Mr Koppel acts immediatelty and I receive my answer or feedback within a few days. Mr. Koppel corrects my technique by filming himself doing the technique on someone and he also corrects my mistakes step by step explaining where I went wrong and what is expected of me. I then re-film those techniques and he re-films himself stating whether he is happy or not and if I passed or not.
I also love the way that the GMAU Krav Maga course is laid out. The videos are very clear and distinct and every technique is explained in detail in the lessons. Then there are classes that follow the lessons. Each class has fun ways of training and excellent drills to train. I feel as if I am there in the class with them. In the lessons not only did I learn Krav Maga techniques but also a lot of life skills, including awareness.
The instructors go out of their way to make the classes interesting and as practical as possible
The GMAU Krav Maga course which is globaly recognised and internationally accredited has also benefited me greatly since the standards are high. This has made me a much better Krav Maga practitioner than I had ever imagined.
The course is also very affordable and it has been every cent worth it.
I highly recommend GMAU to anyone who would like to study krav maga.
They really are the best!
