Karate around the world at MSKC

Visiting South Florida for a few days? We always welcome fellow KarateKas! We’ve enjoyed meeting and training with fellow KarateKas from all over the United States, the Caribbean, South America and Europe.  Just last week, a fellow KarateKa from France dropped in to train with us.

Support Miami Shotokan

Miami Shotokan Karate Club is looking to represent both Miami and the USA in both tournaments and camps this year. And we need your support!  Coming up in September, our sensei and some of our dojo members will be representing the US Team in the South American Championship in Chile.

We’ve started a GoFundMe account to help our dojo pay for the honor of representing the US team in Chile, and we would love your support! All donations will be used to assist with travel costs to and from tournaments and camps.

Thank you for your support!

You’re invited to Miami Shotokan’s Movie Night

Join us on Saturday, June 25th at 7:00 p.m. to watch the 13th Funakoshi Gichin Cup World Karate Championship. This worldwide tournament took place in Tokyo in 2014 and Miami Shotokan had several dojo members participate as part of the US Team. Our Sensei also participated as one of the US Team Coaches.

Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for children and there will be food and beverages for sale. All proceeds from the event benefit Miami Shotokan Karate Club’s dojo members representing the US Team in the South American Championship in Chile this September.

We look forward to seeing you all on Saturday!

Unsu Demonstration

As we are ramping up our YouTube channel, we wanted to share this demonstration of the kata, Unsu that Sensei Jose and dojo member Andre Fiallos recorded recently. In this demonstration they show the bunkai of each movement. For those of you not familiar with the term, bunkai means the practical application of the technique.

Enjoy!
