Personnel Funakoshi Shotokan Karate Association
Address 1293 South Park Victoria Ave. Milpitas CA 95035 USA


Sensei Miriam Garnica began her Shotokan Karate training with Shihan Funakoshi in June 1990. In addition to training on a regular basis, she taught Shotokan Karate at the Hollister, California dojo from 2001 to 2008. Dedication and support to FSKA has been the hallmark of her years of training. Sensei Garnica has participated in many seminars and tournaments worldwide and provided invaluable support to each of these events. She has been a strong competitor in both kata and kumite at the many tournaments that she has participated in from 1990 through 2002. In addition to competing at tournaments, Sensei Garnica began helping at tournaments when she first started training in 1990, and this has grown into her being responsible for registration and staging of competitors at FSKA tournaments. This, along with teaching the basics of timekeeping and score-keeping to the many volunteers who assist at the tournaments, has made her a key member of the FSKA tournament staff.
