Who We Are
The University Karate Center is one of the most established martial arts schools in Plantation, FL, opening its doors in 1980. Yes, that's more than 40 years teaching! We are the home of MuDoKai karate, which translates to "The Unlimited Way". By integrating the best of many martial arts styles, we help you build lifelong skills. Our program is suitable for any age, experience level, or physical ability.
All of our instructors are students themselves. Here are just a few of our active and dedicated team.
Shihan Robert Mason
Founder & Head Instructor
Having started his training in 1962, Shihan Mason has experience from all over the world, bringing these insights back to the MuDoKai curriculum.
Sensei David FungSang
Lead Junior Instructor
Since a young age, Sensei FungSang sought to build his own skills, while passionately helping others in their own pursuits.
Sensei Joe Winn
Instructor & Tai Chi Assistant Instructor
Combining skills in MuDoKai with Tai Chi, Sensei Winn shares his love of learning with all students to help them meet their goals.
We asked students and their families what they loved most about training at University Karate Center. Here's what they shared:
"The lessons I learned at this facility from Shihan Mason are still alive and strong in me. The techniques are awesome, but Mr. Mason is spectacular. He is the real deal and if you have a kid or want training yourself I highly recommend this school."
"Excellent and caring instructors. My daughter has been here for years and loves it."
"The current instructors are my childhood friends. They are as kind as they are talented and experienced. Everyone there is truly passionate about what they do, and about advancing their art and the lives of those they teach."
"University Karate Center is a great place for students to learn self defense and good karate skills. Students are not promoted unless the Sensei thinks they are ready. My son has been here for a year and really enjoys the classes. He also has made lots of friends here."

"Shihan Mason is one of the best martial artists I've had the pleasure to train with."
