Toyotaro Miyazaki first donned his karate gi at the age of 15, when he began studying under Tomasaburo Okano. His journey into the world of martial arts took him to numerous competitions, landed him on the covers of magazines such as Black Belt and Karate Illustrated, and eventually brought him to New York. Once there, he opened his own dojo, Shotokai-USA, where he has taught for more than 40 years.
Like his masters before him, Miyazaki and his staff of teachers pass on the knowledge of shotokan karate’s unarmed and weapon-based fighting styles. They take students aged 3 and up from white belt to black belt, teaching them self-defense, self-discipline, and an acute distaste for two-by-fours.
