Self-defense (Bunkai) Classes, Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, AZ
SELF DEFENSE. Tuesdays we focus on kata and throw in a little bunkai. Wednesdays we focus on bunkai and throw in a little kata. Bunkai is the self-defense applications extracted from karate kata emphasizing many techniques for women.
We defend against grabs, throws, chokes, bear-hugs, takedowns, punches, sucker punches, kicks, haymakers, knives, handguns, rifles, and clubs. We haven't figured out how to use karate against a tank, but we're working on it. Karate is the ultimate form of empty-hand self-defense, and traditional karate has been around for centuries only because it works. We want to teach our families, friends, and neighbors how to defense themselves. We have senior citizens and families in our classes. You can be too young to learn karate, but never too old!
In addition to using hands and feet, we also add kobudo to this class and even show students how to use common weapons and tools in self defense. We train with traditional Okinawa kobudo weapons, samurai weapons & pens, fingernail files, canes, umbrellas, keychains, magazines, belts, etc. You are surrounded by weapons, you just need to learn to recognize them!
Soke Hausel, taught dozens of self-defense classes, clinics, and self-defense for women at the University of Wyoming over 30 years Because of his skills and creativity, he is one of a handful of westerners to receive an award for Menkyo Wajutsu (martial arts genius). Recently, he taught self-defense to Chandler Arizona librarians, women's clubs, girls scouts, senior citizens, and church groups. Self-defense training starts as ippon kumite (one-step attack). Kids who attend our classes train with their parents. So, unlike other dojo, you will not have to defend against a 3-year-old who will kick you in the shin. And if you are a school teacher, you should check us out, so you can learn to defend yourself and your students.
