History of Hakuzan-Kai Martial Arts in Phoenix


Hakuzan-Kai (White Mountain Group) was registered with Hakkoryu Hombu Dojo from 2005 until 2011. Changes in leadership of Hakkoryu for non-Japanese members prompted our school (dojo) to sever its ties with Hakkoryu. After studying Hakkoryu for over 25 years we continue to use its teachings as the core of our curriculum.

As students of Arizona Martial Arts Academy in Phoenix/Glendale we have gradually incorporated Shorin-ryu Karate and other  teachings of Master Jiro Shiroma into our classes. Every instructor at Hakuzan-Kai has learned a different mix of martial arts and our teaching includes some of each Sensei. Our history will continue to evolve just as martial arts continue to change.
