After more than 5 decades of martial arts training vested in a lifetime, Grandmaster Hausel of Mesa and Gilbert Arizona  looks back on his experiences and training. Soke Hausel has been rewarded with three of the highest awards in martial arts along with numerous national and international awards for teaching. Anyone can check the Internet about Grandmaster Hausel's background and find a long list of black belt students and many  of his successful students" who are not only successful in karate and other martial arts, but more importantly, are successful in their professions which include many PhDs, some university professors, school teachers, clergy, engineers, chemists, astronomers, geologists, biologists, physicists, military leaders, accountants and more. Because of his past background of teaching at four different universities, he indicates his life has been blessed with many professionals.

Grandmaster Hausel indicates, "I don't make money teaching traditional martial arts: it is a way of life - a way of life I will not walk away from and will practice until my last breath as it teaches others to respect one another".

When it comes to martial arts, many people think of karate. When it comes to martial arts at the University of Wyoming, many think of Hall of Fame martial artist Grandmaster Hausel. Now when people think of the traditional martial arts, many people in the East Valley of Phoenix are starting to think of Grandmaster Hausel.

It was in 2006 that Soke Hausel, grandmaster of Shorin-Ryu Karate and Kobudo decided to retire from the University of Wyoming. He and his wife packed up some bags, mats, hundreds of rocks and books and moved to Gilbert, Arizona and opened the Arizona Hombu in Mesa, Arizona. Soke Hausel was a research geologist and geological consultant who had published more than a 1000 books, papers and maps while also teaching karate, martial arts weapons known as kobudo, self-defense, samurai arts including the samurai sword, spear, halberd, and throwing arts known as jujutsu, and also taught classes in women's self-defense and martial arts history. Each week in Arizona, Soke Hausel now teaches several classes to adults and families at the Arizona Hombu on Baseline Road on the border of Mesa and Gilbert. The Mesa Karate Instructor taught traditional martial arts at the University of Wyoming for 30 years and recently celebrated his golden anniversary in martial arts.

In 2014, Grandmaster Hausel was selected for Marquis Who's Who in America and Who's Who in the World for accomplishments as a martial arts instructor, martial artist, and geologist. In 2015, he has selected for Marquis Who's Who in Science and Engineering, Who's Who in America and Who's Who in the World for many accomplishments in martial arts and also in geological sciences. He was also selected for other prestigious awards including the Cambridge Award and the DaVinci Award. Soke Hausel indicates that he loves teaching martial arts as much as he loves hunting for gold and gemstone deposits. He reports he was born as an individual and continues living as an individual and is everything but gregarious - "I seek my own path".

"Those seeking to learn more about the traditional martial arts will enjoy training at the Arizona Hombu dojo - our classes focus on adults and families, and we also have a large percentage of female martial artists.  "Classes typically have about 30% women, and recently a few classes have included as many as 50% women with one evening in November (2015) when we had 60% women in a karate class". 

Classes at the Arizona Hombu are traditional Okinawan in that one will learn to bow, show respect, learn a little Japanese, train in effective self-defense, and they will never be subjected to any competition. Our philosophy is the same as most Okinawan Karate schools where karate evolved from Kung Fu - the late great father of modern karate, Gichin Funakoshi stated,

"The Purpose of Karate Lies Not in Victory or Defeat, but in the Perfection of Its Participants".
