SAMURAI ARTS. We teach the following samurai weapons and forms at the Arizona Hombu dojo in Mesa - samurai sword known as katana as used in the Japanese art of iaido or fast-draw samurai sword and kenjutsu (pragmatic applications). No sharpen blades are allowed. Other samurai arts taught at the Arizona Hombu dojo include hanbo (3-foot staff), jujutsu (throwing arts), naginata (pole arm), sojutsu (yari or Japanese spear), kusari fundo also known as manriki gusari (weighted chain), hojojutsu (rope restraining), tanto (knife), tsue (cane), tekko (referred to as Okinawan knuckle dusters), bo (6-foot staff), kubotan (short stick), bokken (wooden sword) and modern weapons such as the Asp or kioga (expandable baton). 

Some of these arts have kata (forms) and others are jutsu arts (traditional combat arts with no kata). Few other martial artists in the West teach so many samurai arts and kobudo weapons. Grandmaster Hausel was awarded the title of 'Samurai' by Dai-Soke Sacharnoski at the Juko Kai International Hombu several years ago. In addition, the Arizona Hombu dojo has an actual blood-line samurai - Sensei Paula Borea,  who was born in Japan with Samurai Lineage. You'll love meeting and training with her and enjoy learning samurai arts in our weekly Arizona Samurai Arts Class.
