Self-Defense (Bunkai) Classes

"To win 100 victories in 100 battles is not the highest skill. To subdue an enemy without fighting is the highest skill" - Sun-Tzu


SELF-DEFENSE at the Arizona School of Traditional Okinawa Martial Arts focus on traditions of Shorin-Ryu Karate by emphasizing ethics, morals, values, self-esteem & self-confidence. We teach self-defense when all else fails.


All persons, regardless of age should learn self-defense. After you start training, set goals to keep yourself in classes for the rest of your life - your health will benefit from physical exercise & training. We offer group classes in self-defense & traditional karate.


If you are a member of a sorority, women's association, church group, you should learn self-defense! If you are a high school student, college student, you need self-defense. If you are a father, learn self-defense and remember, you cannot always be there for your daughters and sons: so be sure they learn proper self-defense!. If you are a flight attendant you need self-defense! We offer self-defense training for travelers, groups, airline associations, flight attendant associations, etc.


Don't wait until it's too late! 


Our students train in pragmatic self-defense while learning to use maximum force, but at the same time, limit contact while exercising control so minimize injuries. Along with powerful strikes, we train select members in body-hardening. Karate is more about learning respect one another and building self-confidence.
