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 major universities, Soke Hausel believes martial arts should be both educational & fun. Classes at the Seiyo no Shorin-Ryu Karate Hombu in Arizona are limited to 25 & we have a good mix of men and women with a couple of families. We ask members to pay at the beginning of each month with personal check or cash (no credit cards). Our fees include monthly training fees & periodic rank certification fees (see rank certification below). 


(1) Group martial arts (T, W, Th): Members pay - $125/month. It's not necessary, but we hope you will attend all classes.

(2) Family membership - $150/mo for two! Each additional family member, add $50/mo. Allows you to attend all group classes. 

(3) Private Lessons - $50/hour.

(4) Personal Class. A personal Class for yourself and a friend. This is a weekly class set up for you at a specific hour each week where you will train with our Hall-of-Fame Grandmaster. The fee is $300/month for two people - bring a friend, you can split the cost. 

(5) And we also offer special clinics on some Saturday mornings from 9 to 11 am, and an annual Arizona-Utah clinic in the Spring.

(6) Kids Karate. Basics, respect, discipline and karate kata. Your child must be focused to be accepted, and will be taught to respect martial arts, their instructor, and other students. They will learn a little Japanese language and Okinawan traditions in this class.



  • Periodically, members are asked if they would like to test for rank in karate and kobudo. Depending on the individual, this typically occurs after 2 to 6 months of training. If you pass, you will be promoted and awarded rank certification after a fee is paid for the test. 

  • All mudansha ranks (9th kyu to 1st kyu) known as color belts, are $60/rank.
  • Kobudo certifications - $60.
  • Shodan, Nidan & Sandan, Yondan, Godan fees - $250.
  • All other yudansha ranks - $300 (no honorary ranks - one must earn rank & all pay for their rank and certificates).
