Students Honor Soke Hausel’s 50th Anniversary as a Martial ArtistIn 1964, a long-haired teenager from a popular rock n’ roll band in Salt Lake City walked into a local dojo (Black Eagle Federation) in Sugarhouse and began training in karate. In 1964, he had no idea what karate was other than a form of self-defense. This became a lifelong journey with Soke training in many martial arts and receiving more than a dozen certifications in different martial arts. Not only was he awarded sokeshodai (grandmaster) of the Seiyo Shorin-Ryu karate-do and karate-jutsu, he has been awarded Shihan (master) of 4 other martial arts.
