Arizona Karate - Nobody in Arizona Does it Better


Consider this as a challenge!!!

We do not believe that anyone in Arizona teaches such a wide variety of martial arts in the entire state - see if you can find anyone who does. Look at what you learn at our dojo!

Classes at the Arizona Hombu dojo in Mesa Arizona include training in Shorin-Ryu karate, kobudo and bunkai. Our head instructor is one of the highest ranked martial artists in the West, and being certified as sokeshodai (grandmaster), people learn both karate and kobudo. 

Kobudo covers many Okinawan tools used as weapons of self-defense such as rokubo, nuntibo, nitanbo, ekubo, kubotan, nunchaku, sansetsukon, tekko, kuwa, rake, kama, sai, tonfa, tsue, kusari fundo and ASP (expandable baton). Along with kobudo, karate (empty hand) focuses on kata, shitai kori, and bunkai (self-defense).

Our soke not only has certifications in Shorin-Ryu karate and kobudo, he is also recognized as shihan (master instructor) in samurai arts. So at the Hombu in Mesa, Arizona, our martial arts students and instructors also learn classical samurai arts of iaido, kenjutsu, sojutsu, naginatajutsu, hanbojutsu, tantojutsu, manrikigusari, hojojutsu, bokken and jujutsu.
