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.

JKA/AF 2016 National Training Camp

Miami Shotokan recently attended the 2016 National Training Camp hosted by JKA/AF, and enjoyed the opportunity to train with guest instructor, Koichiro Okuma, 6th Dan JKA.

The camp, held in New Orleans, covered a variety of trainings over the weekend of June 9th, 2016. Our dojo members greatly appreciated the opportunity to learn and train with our fellow KarateKas from other dojos.

Thank you JKA/AF for hosting another great training camp! Osu.
