Arizona's Adult & Family Karate and Self-Defense Classes

We specialize in teaching adults and families! Adults of all sizes and all ages!

Hall-of-Fame Grandmaster Hausel loves to teach martial arts. He started teaching martial arts more than 4 decades ago and through the years, taught classes at four universities where 99% of his students were adults. Some years, his karate and jujutsu classes included 50% female. While at the University of Wyoming, he taught a variety of martial arts classes and taught self-defense to ROTC, women's groups, faculty and staff, church groups, and often teamed up with University Police Chief Tim Banks to teach classes in Self-Defense for Women.

He has since become one of the top martial arts instructors in the West and continues to teach traditional karate, kobudo, self-defense and samurai arts to adults and a few families. In fact, because of his love of educating people in martial arts, he has been awarded several national and international awards by various organizations for his teaching methods. All one has to do is to examine his martial arts awards and then take a look at wiki. We highly recommend that you research his background with a quick internet search on Google and Bing for Soke Hausel. If you think he may be the right instructor for you, then by all means, please stop by our dojo (we don't have any salesmen so you won't be harassed into signing up for classes) and take a seat in our peanut gallery and watch a class or two. Then, please compare our instructor and our martial arts school to others that may interest you. We can almost guarantee that we have one of the more highly educated martial arts groups with scientists, engineers, accountants and teachers and also some of the friendliest martial arts groups in Arizona.

2008 Martial arts clinic at the University of Wyoming
It was on the plains of Laramie, Wyoming where a martial arts instructor continued his teaching career offering a wide variety of martial arts classes and clinics to the faculty, staff, student body and general public - traditional karate classes, traditional kobudo classes, self-defense for adults, self-defense for women, samurai arts classes for adults, traditional jujutsu classes for adults, Women's karate classes and more.  While teaching adult karate classes, this martial arts instructor continued his research in Archean rocks and mineral deposits (rocks older than 2.5 billion years), diamond deposits, gemstones and gold. This instructor enjoyed teaching people about prospecting and at the same time, loved to teach the students and faculty all aspects of the traditional Okinawan martial arts

After 30 years of teaching, he retired from Wyoming and packed up and left for Arizona where he continues research on rocks and minerals as well as continues teaching adults and now families how to defend themselves using their hands and feet.

So, today, the Hall-of-Fame Grandmaster of Shorin-Ryu Karate and Kobudo teaches several adult-oriented karate classes at the Arizona Hombu Dojo in Mesa. The reason for his focus on adult (and family) martial arts classes is because he has always taught karate and kobudo to adults at various universities where kids were not an option.  The only difference today, it that his classes are now smaller due to available space. When he taught adult karate at the University of Wyoming, his classes often exceeded 100 people because of the available gyms. Whereas today, his Arizona karate school has a size that limits classes to 25 adults and families.

Grandmaster of Karate teaches Self-Defense to Arizona Adults

Group hug with Soke Hausel, Sensei Paula Borea (2nd dan) and Sensei Bill Borea (3rd dan) at the
Arizona Hombu - home of the Hall-of-Fame Grandmaster
Soke Hausel has been teaching martial arts most of his life in-between prospecting and consulting for gold and gemstones. He was actually on an exploration team of 7 geologists who discovered what is thought to be one of the ten largest gold deposits ever found in history. And he had made other gold discoveries and found diamond and gemstone deposits for companies and the State of Wyoming. In addition to research on mineral deposits and writing books (and occasionally sketching) he teaches traditional Okinawan martial arts

His focus is adults and families- this is because he has taught martial arts for 40 years at various universities, where the martial arts students were faculty, staff and the university student body. Grandmaster Hausel loves to teach and you can find him most any day at his karate school (dojo) at 60W Baseline Center in Mesa, or prospecting - either way, he is working with rocks

If you are a rock hound and forget your rock pick, Soke Hausel has a solution for you.
