TBT – Beach Practice

Last month we had yet another successful beach practice, in celebration of our founding. We met at the Crandon Park Beach at 8 a.m. for training, and then spent the day playing baseball, grilling and celebrating with our dojo members. Once again, our friends at Fandango Pictures beautifully captured this event.

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.
