Traditional Okinawan Martial Arts (Karate, Kobudo, Self-Defense, Samurai Arts)

Schedule - Martial Arts Classes & Clinics

Traditional Martial Arts are about self-defense, self-esteem & self-confidence. We teach people to be proficient with feet & hands: but, we don't stop at teaching kicks & punches, Kyoju (professor of martial arts) Hausel will educate you traditional martial arts to build self-esteem. We have fun learning martial arts. Our classes are for adults & families.

In the following schedule, Tuesday evenings begin training with kata (forms) of karate & we periodically examine bunkai. This is the most important training in karate. Wednesdays begin with Karate & we review karate, kobudo and self-defense taught in other classes. This is followed by Self Defense (Kata Bunkai) where members learn kata techniques to defend against a variety of attacks. Thursdays start with Samurai Arts Dressed in karate jacket and black hakama, members learn the samurai sword, Okinawan spear, naginata, jujutsu, manrikigusari, hanbo & other similar weapons.

CLASSES. Gichin Funakoshi, the father of modern Okinawa Karate & Kobudo, summed up our philosophy in a simple statement. "The purpose of karate lies not in victory or defeat, but in perfection of its participants". After training in martial arts for >5 decades & teaching at four universities, Soke Hausel believes learning martial arts should be both educational & fun.  Classes are limited to 20 people & we have a good mix of men and women, with a couple of families.
