"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!"

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.

The Shotokan Karate course is very well organized. The different chapters/belt levels are in correspondence with the actual level of skills the student has. For me personally, the ability to train wherever and whenever i want to is very convenient. The videos are of high quality and high standards. They keep you motivated. I have noticed that my level of fitness improved considerably during the training and that was the main reason for me to get involved in the program.
The videos for the kata's were a bit difficult to follow for me, due to the camera angles, but i believe they improved it already :).
I'm very pleased with this great way to exercise!
