Welcome to our traditional karate school & Hombu in Mesa, Arizona, featuring our Hall-of-Fame grandmaster along with our karate, kobudo, self-defense & samurai arts classes for adults & families. Our grandmaster has more than 5 decades of experience and taught in the past at four major universities. He is certified as Kyoju no Budo (professor of martial arts). We teach Shorin-Ryu Karate & are affiliated with Juko Kai International, Zen Kokusai Soke Budo-Bugei Renmei & Seiyo No Shorin-Ryu Karate Kobudo Kai.
The Arizona Hombu serves as a traditional (non-competitive) martial arts facility & as the Arizona School of Traditional Karate. We offer karate, kobudo (weapons), self-defense & samurai arts classes for women, men, senior citizens, families, school teachers, church groups, librarians, medical professionals, engineers, scientists, laborers, lawyers, accountants, artists, secretaries, etc. We also provide rank certification. Our classes are beginner to the highest level black belt. Children train with parents, as our classes focus on adults.
As stated by the father of Modern Karate, Gichin Funakoshi, "The Purpose of Karate lies not in defeat or victory, but in the perfection of its participants". Karate is considered a 'weapon', not a 'sport' and it needs to be taught as a weapon, but at the same time, the student must be 'perfected' to respect all others. We teach karate to adults, families and senior citizens, and we reserve the right to refuse to teach those who are aggressive and show a lack of respect to others. If you would like to see our karate and kobudo, watch our videos.
