Self-Defense Classes in the Phoenix East Valley

Karate classes at the Arizona Hombu focus on kata and self-defense applications known as bunkai from those kata.
Self-Defense classes taught at the top martial arts school in Mesa, Arizona: the Arizona Hombu dojo,  focuses on adults, families, school teachers, clergy, engineers, scientists, faculty, prospectors, women, men and grandparents taught by Hall-of-Fame Martial Arts professor, Soke Hausel, formerly with the University of Wyoming. People who attend these classes and clinics are always impressed by what they can do just by using simple strikes and unbalancing their attackers. The training is always a great time for all involved.

Grandmaster Hausel considerable experience teaching self-defense, karate, kobudo, samurai arts, martial arts history, women's self-defense, jujutsu and more. While at the University of Wyoming, he taught staff, faculty, students, sororities, church groups, clergy and other martial artists. His years of teaching taught him to break down techniques and make them simple but effective for self-defense classes and clinics and it paid off. Many students enjoyed the classes and over the years, Grandmaster Hausel has heard back from a few students who were actually attacked and successfully defended themselves.

The Self-Defense classes at the Arizona Hombu include school teachers and professors who are attracted to the classes due to violence in the classroom and on the streets, and also because of it educational value and value for physical fitness.

We highly recommend all women learn martial arts because they never know when they might be attacked. While at the University of Wyoming, Soke Hausel's karate and kobudo classes included about 35% women. In addition, he taught clinics to campus sororities, women's church groups, women's clubs and offered women's self-defense classes on campus simply because authorities report 1 in every 4 women on campus will be sexually assaulted during their college attendance.


So, instead of being a victim, some people in Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, Phoenix and Apache Junction are learning self-defense and karate at the Arizona Hombu in Mesa, Arizona. Recently, some of Grandmaster Hausel's classes have included as many as 60% women who want to be armed with self-defense knowledge. This is simply because when you are trained in self-defense, you don't have to be concerned about how to get to a gun or pepper spray when someone grabs or restricts your arms.

Soke Hausel refers to cases where his students successfully defended themselves. In one situation, a handicapped student was run off the road in Mesa, Arizona by another driver simply because the karate student was driving too slow - road rage is a not so uncommon occurrence in the Phoenix valley. In another case, one of Soke's students was physically attacked by a male essentially twice her height and weight.  He later called the police for assistance after being severely
beaten by the petite karate girl.
