ARIZONA MARTIAL ARTS SCHOOL - Internationally Recognized Training, Education, Students and Instructors

We were excited that our Martial Arts School and Quality of Martial Arts Instruction was awarded Best of Mesa for 2013. Thank you Mesa!
During this year, so far, our martial arts instructors and seniors (senpai) continued to earn national and international recognition. Dr. Neal Adam, a professor of biology at Grand Canyon University, was awarded the rank of Rokudan (6th degree black belt) and title of Dai-Shihan (great martial arts master instructor) by Seiyo Kai International. Dr. Adam also received certification as Menkyo Okuden (1st degree black belt) in Juko Ryu Kijutsu (also known as Combat Ki) by Juko Kai International. Combat Ki is one of the toughest martial arts in the world.

Our Grandmaster and head instructor at our traditional martial arts school on the border of Gilbert and Mesa, Arizona, Professor Hausel, retired Professor of Budo from the University of Wyoming and senior economic geologist from the Wyoming Geological Survey at the University, was awarded Junidan (12th dan) in December, 2012, and awarded Meijin Wa-jutsu (Master of Masters) in 2013 at the Juko Kai International hombu in Texas. He was also selected for Who's Who in America 2013 and 2014 and Who's Who in the World 2013 and also 2014.

One of our seniors (senpai), Jesse Bergkamp, returned from training in Okinawa and was awarded sankyu by Seiyo Kai International. He also passed exams for PhD in organic chemistry at Arizona State University and is moving on to Rutgers University. We will all miss Dr. Bergkamp and wish him all our best!

 And one of our deshi (students) was presented a national award at the Juko Kai International Clinic in New Braunfels, Texas for "Outstanding Male Martial Arts Student of the Year". We are very proud that Ryan Nemec was presented this award. Juko Kai International is likely the largest traditional martial arts association in the West and one of the most prestigeous in the world. To be recognized by JKI is an incredible honor!

Our KARATE SCHOOL servicing residents of Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, Phoenix, Tempe and Scottsdale Arizona was recognized for its Outstanding Blog Presentations and Education of the General Public in Martial Arts. Snippet.Com from the United Kingdom found information published by the Arizona School of Traditional Karate in Mesa and Gilbert and its martial arts association - Seiyo No Shorin-Ryu Karate Kobudo Kai - to provide great educational value and information on Karate and Martial Arts.

The Arizona School of Traditional Karate at 60 W. Baseline Road lies on the border of Gilbert and Mesa and a mile from Chandler. The School and its blogs were recognized for web presentation about its martial arts classes and training.
