Arizona Hombu Karate & Kobudo Dojo

School of Traditional Martial Arts

Lineage of Seiyo Shorin-Ryu

"If there is no kata, there is no karate, just kicking & punching" - Shoshin Nagamine 


Photo to the left shows - Presentation of Seiyo No Shorin-Ryu Karate lineage to Soke Hausel by Dai-Soke Sacharnoski in Dallas in 2007 at the 45th Anniversary of Juko Kai International. Dai-Soke Sacharnoski is considered by many to be the greatest living martial artist in the world. To quote Soke Hausel, "In martial arts, there is no greater honor than training under the greatest martial artist and having this outstanding person to look up to. I owe much of my development and achievements in martial arts to Dr. Sacharnoski, Dai Soke! Without his example, I would have only been another Instructor in a sea of Martial Arts Instructors".



We are a family. Ryu implies family and we are all a family of martial artists. The Hombu of Seiyo No Shorin-Ryu Karate Kobudo Kai(TM) operates independently from all other dojo. All dojo Headmasters and Instructors are completely responsible for their own dojo and their own actions. We only provide martial arts education, guidance & proper certification for our members. Black belt Instructors of Seiyo No Shorin Ryu Karate Remnei are allowed to test their students for rank up to two levels beneath their current rank. As is typical of Traditional Shorin-Ryu Karate. Here is much of our lineage:
