Introductory Shotokan Karate Course

"I cannot say enough good things about Global Martial Arts University. I had always wanted to study Shotokan Karate, and through life's twists and turns, never had the opportunity. Two years ago, after moving to Texas and discovering that there were no local dojo’s that I could attend that would fit my schedule, I started searching online. I came across Global Martial Arts University and couldn’t have been happier. Not only am I able to train and earn real rank through GMAU, but I can train anywhere, anytime, on my own schedule! Not to mention that the guidance and one on one instruction from Sensei John and Sensei Michael, is something that is rare to find at ANY dojo. Over the past 2 years I have not only learned so much physically, but I have also been able to make significant improvements with battling panic disorder. Something that I have battled my entire life. I am currently a yellow belt and will soon be testing for my orange. My journey has only just begun, and I am proud to be a part of Global Martial Arts University!"

What Our Students

are Saying...

I absolutely love being at GMAU! The Senseis are down to earth and the courses are easy to follow along with. It is a well designed program and you even get personal feedback via video from your instructors. It is inexpensive and you can do it at your own pace in your own home. I would highly recommend GMAU to anyone! It is a lot of fun and a wise investment!

I am enjoying this course a lot. It covers techniques in fine detail which my old brick and motor Shotokan school didn't do. Sensei's Jon and Jonas's teaching approach's are great. I wish there was more review video classes to follow along too. I know it's important to practice on my own, but I am only half way's through my yellow belt curriculum and have completed all the required training videos already.

Vincent Dean Jarema
Shotokan Karate Student

The course is excellently presented and easy to follow. There are great breakdowns for all the individual techniques. Lots of classes at the lower belt levels - not so many after blue belt. More classes through blue, purple, brown would help. Also, a bit more focus on the fighting/self defence aspects of Shotokan would make the course more awesome. Overall, highly recommended!

Marcus Regan
Shotokan Karate Student

The training material is good, the exams aren’t easy…you really need to earn a rank/belt. It is no fake MCdojo :). I can train where and whenever I have the time. I just took the yellow belt exam and received a 25 minute long personal video from Sensei Jon reviewing my material.
