SAMURAI ARTS. Not only do you have an opportunity to learn Shorin-Ryu Karate & Kobudo at the Arizona Hombu Dojo in Mesa, but we also provide training in samurai arts - all for the same price. We seriously doubt that anyone in Arizona teaches as many samurai weapons as Soke Hausel, who has Shihan certifications in samurai arts.

Here are some of the samurai weapons that we teach: 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 allowed). Other samurai arts 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). 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. You'll love meeting and training with her and learning samurai arts in our weekly Arizona Samurai Arts Class.
