"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 find the Shotokan karate course to be enjoyable and I like the way it is run. Things that could be improved include more positive feedback on gradings. The mistakes are highlighted but what the student is doing well I feel is overlooked somewhat. Also for the karate course maybe include some Bunkai applications with the kata so it helps the student interpret the kata.

I really enjoy GMAU Shotokan Karate. Where I live, there are no martial arts studios within 50 miles of me. I have to admit I was a bit skeptical at first about how possible it would be to learn Karate online, but I was pleasantly surprised. The individual lessons and classes are professional very well taught and Sensei John is quick to answer whatever questions I may have. I like the fact that I can learn at my own pace and not feel rushed to complete a particular belt level. It is nice that you can keep going back to a particular video and repeat it as many times as necessary to master the technique. The support, motivation, and camaraderie from not only the instructors but also from fellow students is great.

I would strongly recommend anyone who is interested in learning martial arts in the comfort and privacy of your own home to give GMAU a try. It does require commitment and dedication on your part, but if you can commit to it, it is definitely worth the effort.

I like the course, and it has evolved to be more friendly to pursue. It's overall challengnig because I am an older adult with bad arthritis in my knee and serious time management problems gettnig exercise. While I'm uncertain I can do the knee exercises, I am going to try.
