The Year 2017 has been an amazing year for one valley martial arts instructor and geologist (https://www.everipedia.com/Dan_Hausel/). Grandmaster Dan Hausel of Gilbert has been selected for awards acknowledging his lifelong dedication to martial arts, geology and writing. Along with General Colin Powell, he was selected for the Albert Nelson Marquis Who’s Who Lifetime Achievement Award. Along with Grandmaster Jhoon Goo Rhee, Grandmaster Hausel was selected for induction in Who’s Who in Martial Arts.
Earlier, Hausel was notified of selection to Great Men & Women of Science and for the Cambridge Certificate for Outstanding Scientific Achievement. In the past week, he was notified of his selection for Best Martial Arts Teachers in Phoenix award for his expertise. Grandmaster Hausel has been training in martial arts for more than 50 years and taught martial arts for more than 3 decades at the University of Wyoming prior to moving to the valley and first teaching at ASU before opening the Arizona Hombu dojo in Mesa. He has also been a geologist for 45 years and made many significant gemstone, gold and diamond discoveries as well as publishing hundreds of books, papers and abstracts mostly on the geological sciences.
Grandmaster Hausel said that anyone who knew him as a child will likely say this is all a miracle! As a scholastically inferior student in public schools, and afraid of confrontations, it is without a question this is all a miracle - a gift from God. Such as in 1990 when one day he had not ability to sketch, and in the following years, he began producing detailed award-winning pencil and color pencil sketches. God had definintely blessed me.
