The American Tigers of Gojuryu is the opportunity of a lifetime. Our school has been spreading Martial Arts in our community since 1995. We are dedicated in providing a safe and family-oriented Martial Arts experience for students of all ages. Our Mission is to foster self-improvement and personal development through focused training. We promote physical fitness and positive social interaction in a courteous and fun atmosphere. Our greatest responsibility is to instill in our students a sense of discipline and a code of ethics to inspire them to lead exemplary lives as leaders in the community. Students and enthusiasts of Martial Arts have many reasons for their interest in this and other Martial Arts styles. Some are drawn to physical fitness and weight-loss aspects of training. Others seek to add discipline and self-control to their lives. While still others are concerned about safety and self-defense. Whether you are interested in our programs for mental or physical well being The American tigers of Gojuryu Karate offers a number of programs that will fit your developmental needs and your busy schedule as well.

Thank you for the commitment to the students. Like I said at your last tournament, if it wasn't for your school, your staff and your commitment to the art I feel that Johannah would not have settled into down and adapted so well. As you know she is dealing with a mental disorder (ADD/ADHD) and the skills that you teach in your classes have helped her to control her out burst and help to focus on her school work. Again thanks. Ms. Gail

Armando, This brings tears to my eyes to know that you can also see God working and appreciating what we do for others. He said "just keep being faithful in your worship and your giving and He will supply all our needs." Thank you God for not allowing me to judge others, but to do what I can for others as if I am doing it unto the Lord. THANK YOU GOD FOR YOUR MANY BLESSINGS BIG AND SMALL. lOVE YOU Winnie Colbourne Reading Coach
We are taught that God hears all and knows all. He is always there when we need him. Continue do the things you do for our children. I know that they take your patience to the end of the rope, but God is watching with his arms open ready to pass out blessing your way. I remember when we were in the small area above the bar. Now look at you. You are now like the little woman who lived in the shoe, "She had so many children she did not know what to do". I pray that the Lord continues to bless you, as you continue to bless our children. Ms. Gail Clotman Norland Elementary School Library Media Center

Good-morning: Received the attached flyer and decided to forward to you. Feel free to send to your friends and relatives who have children who not only want to have fun, but also receive a couple hours of teaching over the summer. I have my child in the year-long tutoring program [one-on-one] and from the results, the program works. Trained teachers provide the strategies. The karate school/summer camp location is State Road 7  just south of Miramar Parkway/Hallandale Beach Boulevard. DISCLOSURE - I have no financial interest in this entity. I just believe in the results of the training. Regards, Carole

My husband and I truly appreciate the time, attention, and effort that is put into the karate class. It is more than just a class. It is a place of enrichment. Kayah looks forward to karate class and looks up to Miss Winnie, Sensei Colbounre,and Mr Clark.
Our family is looking forward to the Christmas Party at the dojo. Please let me know if you need assistance with decorations and/or refreshments.
Again, thanks for everything.
Thanks for guidance & leadership in our children's life ( Jonathan & Joshua) they really enjoyed the competition yesterday... P.S. I think you should address the etiquettes of competition with my Husband ( ha ha ha)... like the screaming. Punch punch... We were laughing last night about that. My husband was the only one Screaming.. How embarrassing...
Thanks for everything, have fun over the weekend. We will be on vacation all next week.
Dear Sensei: Without a great instructor & role model like you our children would not have Achieved this milestone. I thank God for you and pray he would continue Using you in Michael Garrett's life.
Thanks for all you do!
God Bless, Sara Sezumaga
Hello, Nice web page. Damian is really enjoying his training. I also enjoy watching him grow and learn. I am impressed by what I have seen so far in the quality of the students that you teach. I am happy that I found your school. I am a person of faith and I don't believe it was "chance" . I want Damian to grow spiritually as well. i just wanted to drop you an e-mail to let you know that you are appreciated. Thank you, and I look forward to watch you help Damian continue his training. Angelo
Dear Sensei Armando,
Thank you for that beautiful story. I hope all is well. I just wanted to thank you for all you did for Katherine while she was in class. I have found it really difficult to continue during the summer and am going to withdraw her from class at this time since she has not been going, either because we are out of town or somewhere else in Miami during that time. I should have done it sooner but although Katherine did not want me to withdraw her for the summer she realizes how busy it has been for us this summer. We will take it up again in a couple of months once we get our oldest settled in college and the kids settled for their school year. You are a great example to your students. God bless you and much success with your school.
Thanks, Eris Arza
Hi Sensei, We would like to let you know that we too appreciate your dedication,committment and patience (especially with Kenya) in working with our children, Joshua and Kenya. We are very impressed at how much they have learned in only a few months. They are both really excited about martial arts. We visited other Karate' schools and we feel blessed to have come across one that is Christian based. God Bless you. Kene & Becky Niblack.
Where Real Karate lives By deostyle1227 - See deostyle1227's reviews (1) Overall: I have been training with sensei colbourne since I was 15...about 10 years i have been guided by this man and he has not steered me wrong once. I have learned a lot about my self as well as the art which train in in this time. I have gained self confidence, virtue, discipline, as well as way to properly defend myself. To me, Sensei colbourne is more than a teacher, he is a role model, a father figure, to myself as well as the others in the school. He is an excellent instructor and joining his school is the best thing i have ever done. April 22, 2005Pan-American Gojuryu Karate is Awesome; By vealniblack - See vealniblack's reviews (1) Overall: Pros: great instructors
I love Pan-American Gojuryu Karate because the instructors are very child-friendly. They don't yell at the students but instead are patient with them. Each student receives personal attention in class to ensure that they are executing each form and movement properly, the atmosphere is not competitive but supportive of each student, the instructors are knowledgeable and is a great family setting. April 21, 2005 WONDERFUL AND EXCITING. By jovanca_4 - See jovanca_4's reviews (1) Overall: Pros: very charitable and giving of his time I think that he is very attentive and charismatic. At a young age children need something to give them self confidence and guidance and think with his karate class he can give that to them. July 02, 2005 Just what our family,children and community needed By Yahoo! Reviewer Overall: We love this family Karate school, our children's attitudes and academic achievement has improved for the better. They take the discipline they learn in the dojo into the school environment. They have become 'A/B' students and have received many academic achievement awards. We thank Pan-American Gojuryu Karate School for allowing our children to attend their program.
Karate is presented in a simple way that is easy to learn. The profesionalism of the instructors is what impress me, these guys truly care for the students, treat them with respect in an attentive manner. Self esteem is high, students are motivated, parents are delighted with the service. I have visited many parts of the world, Pan American Goju is the Best Dojo I have seen in 25 years of studying Martial Arts. Armando you finally did it you are up there with the world best.
April 10, 2006 Meeting for the first time. By Master Allen - See Master Allen's reviews (2) Overall: I met one of the black belts from this school just recently. I found him to be very courteous, kind, and very confident. Based on that, I would say that is a great relection on the instructor! I would say, join! Feels good to see martial artists without the attitude!!!!
Armando al leer esto estaba tan emocionada que las lagrimas se me salieron. Iam getting old and foolish I am very proud of you, lo malo que hay veces no le decimos a las personas cuanto los queremos. Gracias por esta alegria hoy Domingo. I love very much y estoy orgullosa de ti y tu familia. Nanina
Thank you Sensei for your thoughtful words. I always enjoy hearing about the good work you are doing. I really enjoyed the time I was there with Damian. I will always treasure those memories. I also remember all of the great kids. God bless you for what you do. Angelo Ortiz
Sensei Colbourne, You have a wonderful blog page going on. Please keep up the great work. Your devout dedication to the martial arts is very passionate, and that is very admirable. Enjoy your weekend. I will try to connect with you guys in Texas sometimes when you go there, if possible. Have a good one. Osu! Mjenzi Reese
Mr. Diaz, I just got in to my house, and called voice mail. Sorry I couldn’t return the call, my cell phone battery died and I didn’t have your number anywhere else. Anyway, we made it back safely and everybody really enjoyed the trip and opportunity to see and participate in your test. I would like to thank you for inviting us into the Goju family for the day. Your students and instructors are extremely gracious (and very well-trained), which is a breath of fresh air compared to other schools I’ve experienced in the past.
Congratulations on being part of such a fine organization, and please extend my heartfelt gratitude to Kyoshi and Mrs. Colbourne and all of the Pan-American Goju Family for the hospitality and lunch.
Once again, I hope that Danny and the other students don’t feel too bad about a visiting guest losing a little control during the sparring. He and the entire group are welcome to return the favor anytime.
