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.
We learn to defend against grabs, throws, chokes, bear-hugs, takedowns, punches, sucker punches, kicks, haymakers, knives, handguns, rifles, etc. Karate is the ultimate form of empty-hand self-defense, and traditional karate has been around for centuries because it works. We teach our families, friends, and neighbors to defend. You can be too young to learn karate, but never too old!
In addition to using hands and feet, we add kobudo to and even show students how to use common tools for self defense, such as 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 men, women, students, faculty at the University of Wyoming over 30 years, as well as military, staff, martial artists etc. Because of skill and creativity, he is one of a handful of westerners to ever receive an award for Menkyo Wajutsu (martial arts genius). Recently, he taught self-defense to Chandler Arizona librarians, women's clubs, girls scouts, high school students, 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.
Self-Defense for School Teachers
BUNKAI. Okinawa martial artists developed kata (forms) that teach muscle memory, focus, speed and extreme power. Each kata consists of pragmatic self-defense applications, such that when a person learns kata, they soon learn the bunkai, as self-defense applications for almost any kind of attack. Karate and kobudo students at the Hombu learn these applications and forms, and train constantly so these become second nature and can be applied on the street, if ever attacked.
SELF-DEFENSE. We've taught dozens of self-defense clinics, classes and seminars to a hundreds of martial artists, students, faculty, military, scouts, religious groups, seniors, public schools, businesses, etc. over the years. In one case, Soke Hausel taught a group of taekwondo school black belts from Idaho and Wyoming, that one school owner (5th degree black belt), actually closed his school and moved to Laramie, so he could train under Soke. In these clinics, attendees not only learn effective and simple self-defense applications, they also learn to use everyday tools for weapons.
