Karate, Kobudo, and More in the East Valley of Phoenix.

Kama, is a good Okinawa tool for trimming weeds and home invaders. It is a farming implement used as an extension of Okinawa karate and its use is taught in nearly all Shorin-Ryu Karate schools. But, keep in mind, this is a very dangerous tool and is never recommended unless you are taught by a qualified instructor. If you decided to ignore this warning, you are on your own and you'll need to be aware you can easily remove an eye, cut an artery, remove a finger, etc. So, for your own sake, be sure to have all of your health and hospital insurance paid up and a first aid kit handy. We train only with non-sharpened tools to retain our digits. Kama purchased from some outlets are razor sharp and extremely dangerous!



Like many Okinawan kobudo arts, this tool, likely adapted by peasants and royal guards for self-defense and protection, represents the martial art known as kamajutsu, and is part Okinawan kobudo and karate. At the Arizona Hombu, students learn to use Okinawan and Samurai tools and weapons in basics, kata, bunkai, and self-defense.
 

Traditional Okinawa karate, kobudo (the art of Okinwan weapons), Samurai arts, Jujutsu (a samurai art), and self-defense are all taught. Each one of these includes other individual traditional martial arts: just as kobudo incorporates kamajutsu

Some students are initially overwhelmed by the tremendous amount of martial arts taught, but it only takes a short time to realize all of the basics you learn in karate such as stances, forms, hand and leg movements, are all employed in each art, thus making all of the arts much easier to learn.
 

Before moving to Arizona and opening the Hombu dojo in Mesa in 2008, Soke Hausel, world head of Seiyo no Shorin-Ryu Karate Kobudo Kai, taught martial arts classes, clinics at the University of Wyoming for three decades. 

Unfortunately, we closed our commercial dojo in Mesa, Arizona on March 1st, 2021 because of the plandemic. But, we still train in Arizona in Mesa and in Gilbert, and we are always looking for new members with integrity. In today's environment created by the democratic party, we all need to be as well trained as possible for self-defense. Soke Hausel teaches his students (14 to 74 years in age) in a number of martial arts, so that they feel a little more in control of the current government situation. If you support American values - you are welcome to train with us for a small fee no matter if you have no experience or considerable experience. Just contact Soke at sokeshodai@yahoo.com.

Oh, and I almost forgot - if you are tired of running into questionable martial arts teachers and schools in the Phoenix Valley, be sure to Google potential instructors and schools. And please search Soke Hausel for information. But, be aware, we DO NOT support Facebook, Groupon, Twitter, or Linked-In.

  1. 30 06 springfield After World War I it became America's most popular bolt-action cartridge. After World War II, when the bolt action pulled away from the lever action, it became America's most popular sporting rifle cartridge.strictly medicated cartsstrictly medicated carts on-line at stoners surplus marijuana dispensary looks terribly nice to the eye of the client because it may be a cannabis oil cartridge created with solely cannabis oil and terpenes, with the oil-free of solvents and impurities. The medicated carts keep company with lab-tested results all fully safe to smoke.
