"The purpose of Karate lies not in victory or defeat, but in perfection of its participants" - Gichin Funakoshi, Okinawa
Traditional Karate, Kobudo, Samurai Arts & Self-Defense (Bunkai) Classes
A Hombu dojo is unique in Okinawan martial arts since a Hombu is the administrative dojo (world 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 Karate & Kobudo Dojo is the home of a grandmaster of Shorin-Ryu Karate (Seiyo Kai), who teaches most classes & clinics in Mesa, Arizona at the Hombu for 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 will enjoy our martial arts school. Feel free to visit our school on the border of Mesa with Chandler & Gilbert at the 60 W. Baseline Center (Mesa). We will answer questions about martial arts and leave it up to you if you want to join our group. Please compare our experience with anyone in Arizona - our instructors at the Arizona Hombu Dojo have nearly two centuries of combined martial arts experience!
