Peaceful Warrior Martial Arts is the Valley’s Premiere Martial Arts Training Facility.
Our karate school is based in the Scottsdale and Paradise Valley, Arizona area. Peaceful Warrior students enjoy a wide range of youth, teen and adult classes in various martial arts forms. From traditional to contemporary styles, we have a martial arts program for anyone!
Our base is traditional Shorin-Ryu Karate (and Youth Shorin-Ryu Karate) one of the oldest systems around, from Okinawa, Japan. Students learn long-established kata, self-defense techniques, weapons training and rich history in this deep-rooted practice. Another classical art Peaceful Warrior specializes in is Jujitsu (and Youth Jujitsu), utilizing all forms of grappling techniques, locks, holds, chokes and ground escapes.
For the more modern martial artist, we offer an array of contemporary classes including Street Survival Self Defense and a unique Women’s Self-Defense Program. No need for the added cost of a gym membership! Our distinct center also combines a variety of Fitness Classes including Yoga, Zumba and Cardio Kick Boxing. Fitness enthusiasts, from novice to pro, can work out while their child or spouse trains martial arts. It's a win-win for everyone.
In addition, families can also train together with our exciting Family Class. Parents can be a role model for physical activity and significantly improve the chances that their children will lead healthy and active lives as well!
