2017 and 2018 has been a productive time for one valley martial arts instructor and geologist. Grandmaster Hausel of Gilbert, Arizona was selected for awards that acknowledge a life time of dedication to martial arts, geology and writing. AND recently, Phoenix Voyage Magazine highlighted the Hall of Fame martial arts instructor. And along with General Colin Powell, Hausel was selected for the Albert Nelson Marquis Who’s Who Lifetime Achievement Award. And along with Grandmaster Jhoon Goo Rhee, Grandmaster Hausel was selected for induction in Who’s Who in Martial Arts Legends. Hausel is listed as a notable person in Gilbert Arizona.
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 is also a geologist and made many significant gemstone, gold and diamond discoveries as well as publishing hundreds of books, papers and abstracts primarily 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.
