We are Miami Shotokan Karate Club, Miami’s premier karate dojo based in Southwest Miami-Dade county. Our dojo welcomes students from all walks of life – regardless of whether or not you have a martial arts background. Miami Shotokan is led by Sensei Jose Ferrand, 6th degree black belt and we are affiliated with the Japan Karate Association (JKA) and JKA/American Federation.

What we teach

Our dojo practices the art of Shotokan Karate – a traditional Japanese martial art that comes from Okinawa. Classes will focus on basic movements (Kihon), forms (Kata) and sparring technique (Kumite.) The classes are taught at the level of the students and will advance as our students advance.
