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.

Thank you for your support!

2016 Winter Camp

We just wrapped up a week of training with Kobayashi Sensei, and what a great camp! Sensei Kobayashi taught several classes on kata, kihon and kumite drills, with special focus on relaxation.

In between classes, we enjoyed the opportunity to take Sensei to a day trip to Islamorada, and we enjoyed several dinners. As always, our members and other dojos enjoyed the opportunity to learn and train and continue to build camaraderie. Below are some photos from the event.

Thank you Kobayashi Sensei for the great camp! We look forward to more!
