Arizona Martial Arts Blog

We recently finished a group of successful self-defense clinics at universities for martial artists & the general public: we all had a great time. Earlier this year, we taught self-defense clinics to special groups who flew into Phoenix to train at the Arizona School of Traditional Karate in Mesa in the East Valley.
Statistics show that ~25% of women will be sexually assaulted during their college career. Violence on campuses are out of control. Recently, a woman was dragged to death in Tempe and a straight-A male student was murdered by two thugs simply for his computer and cell phone. These are very sad commentaries on our society and the only way it will change is with swift capital punishment (which isn't going to happen thanks to our liberal court system) or by arming all good people with weapons - including empty hand self-defense training.
Not all self-defense training will be successful, but it definitely increases your chance of survival. Just think about using your hands, knees, elbows, keys, book, etc for weapons! But one must continue to practice and train in self-defense - it must become a lifetime commitment.
Over the years, we have taught many dozens of self-defense clinics in association with campus police agencies as well as clinics to specialized groups and clubs - such as EMTs, Taekwondo Associations, military groups, sororities, church groups, senior groups, political groups and more. In addition to these clinics, classes are taught every week at the Arizona School of Traditional Karate in Mesa. The Arizona School of Traditional Karate is associated with Seiyo Kai International and Juko Kai International so you will receive the best possible training and martial arts education at the Arizona School of Traditional Karate.
Our clinics are successful due to the combination of our Grandmaster who has taught martial arts for more than 4 decades and who is also an award winning public speaker. Most martial artists tend to teach complicated techniques to the public - however, Soke Hausel focuses on simple and pragmatic techniques to insure one can easily use the technique in real life situations.
