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...

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.

If you’re on this page and you want to learn Shotokan Karate and finally start your martial arts journey, this is the community you need. Yeah, I know this is an online course but let me explain...

At this time we're living in, I believe that online courses are a legitimate way to learn new skills and that includes Shotokan Karate. GMAU looks after its own students and helps you progress one step at a time. Even sending you a video answering your questions (they actually did that when I had a question) and I appreciate that.

So, look no further and just join this great community of martial artists.

As a husband and father, finding the time to train at a dojo had been very difficult. When I found GMAU, I was beyond excited to be able to train at my convenience, in my own home. What I didn't expect was the AMAZING Senseis and training programs that came along with GMAU. Aside from actual dojo level training, being able to speak with your Senseis 1-on-1, and have individual questions answered is something that many physical dojos may not have the time to address ... I can’t recommend this great organization enough!

I totally enjoy GMAU and my study of Shotokan Karate. I am able to practice at my own pace at the time that is convenient for me. The training is no joke. The fact that I am able to ask my Sensei questions at any time is great.
