Soke Hausel of the Arizona School of Traditional Karate in Mesa packed his bags for weekend clinics to teach self-defense in Gillette and Laramie Wyoming, Salt Lake City, Utah as well as in Mesa, Arizona this year. The clinics are very popular for both men and women and designed for the lay-person. Hausel, a martial artist of 45+ years, has taught dozens of clinics to Church groups, social clubs, EMT personnel, other martial artists, universities, sororities, law enforcement, military and other groups. Being an award-winning public speaker and member of the Hall of Fame guarantees both expertise and entertainment.
The University of Wyoming Campus Shorin-Ryu Karate and Kobudo Club sponsored a group of three self-defense clinics for the general public and the University community (staff, faculty, students) in the spring and fall of 2010. The clinics were supported by grants from ASUW and University of Wyoming Housing and Food Services.
Attendees trained in a variety of simple self-defense techniques against a variety of grabs including chokes. Everyone in attendenced appeared to enjoy themselves and found this to be a great way to build friendships. By the time the 2-hour clinic was done, everyone was impressed by how easy it can be to defend oneself with a little knowledge.
The clinic was taught by the North American Black Belt and the World Martial Arts Black Belt Hall of Fame Karate instructor and Grandmaster of Seiyo Shorin-Ryu Karate - Soke Hausel. Hausel has taught a variety of similar clinics to various groups over the past 4 decades.
Grandmaster Hausel teaches martial arts classes several times a week at the Arizona Hombu in Mesa that is open to the public. He is also available to teach clinics to clubs and groups in the Phoenix valley. The hombu is located at 60 W. Baseline in Mesa (near crossroads of Mesa & Country Club).
