ARIZONA Martial Arts Classes

It is the philosophy of our martial arts to teach those who will peacefully pass their way onto new generations. Martial arts are about improving oneself and challenging oneself. The only competition should be against oneself.

Come join us in our search for the martial arts way and path. You will be glad you did.

In our samurai arts classes, we teach the traditional samurai sword including iaido (fast draw) and kenjutsu (applications). We also teach tanto (knife techniques), yari (spear), naginata (halberd), jujutsu (grappling arts and sword taking), hojojutsu (rope restraints), and hanbo (half-bo).
