 MAP to our Mesa Dojo (Karate School) on the border of Gilbert & Chandler

A Hombu dojo is unique in Okinawan martial arts since the Hombu is the administrative dojo (training center) of a martial arts style or system. Hombu are occupied by legitimate Soke (grandmaster/president) of a particular martial arts association. Thus, the Arizona Hombu Dojo is the home of the grandmaster of Shorin-Ryu Karate - Seiyo Kai, who teaches essentially all classes & clinics at the Hombu of Seiyo no Shorin-Ryu Karate Kobudo Kai.

Karate is about self-defense & self-improvement. Our Martial Arts classes are for women, men & families from beginner to the highest level black belt. If you are a person of peace and integrity, you are welcome in our martial arts school. Feel free to visit our school on the border of Mesa with ChandlerGilbert at the 60 W. Baseline Center (Mesa). We have a nice peanut gallery for you to sit in to observe a class. We do not hire salesmen, so you will never be pressured into signing up for classes. We will answer your questions about martial arts and leave it up to you if you want to join our group. And please compare our experience with anyone in Arizona. 
                                                     And God Bless!
