"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 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 Chandler & Gilbert at the 60 W. Baseline Center (Mesa). We have a nice peanut gallery and 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 more than a century of combined martial arts experience!
