Arizona Hombu Karate Dojo in Mesa, Arizona
Soke Hausel also offered clinics to girl scouts, private groups, political groups, ASU and Chandler Librarians in Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa and Tempe Arizona where the Hall-of-Fame grandmaster now resides. Attendees commented on these clinics and noted the training made them better aware of their surroundings and also forced them to think about possible scenarios and weapons at hand. One remarked they will never be able to look at a magazine again without thinking how quickly it can be made into a weapon. Librarians from Chandler, Arizona were surprised they had been checking weapons out for years without realizing that books can also be used as very effective weapons. In another group - two women from Mesa talked about how they were planning to train together with their car keys and purses after talking one of the self-defense clinics. And one woman from Gilbert mentioned she had actually been mugged while jogging, and now she felt better prepared and confident. One father noted that he plans to sign his daughters up for karate classes by Soke Hausel at the Arizona School of Traditional Karate and train with them to be sure they are prepared before starting classes at Arizona State University.
