Peaceful Warrior Martial Arts is the valley’s premiere martial arts training facility.

Our karate school is based in the Phoenix, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, Arizona area. 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 that’s right for everyone!

Our base is traditional Shorin-Ryu Karate, one of the oldest systems from Okinawa, Japan. Students ages 7 to adult learn long-established kata, self-defense techniques and karate fundamentals in this deep-rooted practice. We also teach a distinctive Kobudo, or Okinawan system, where students may earn separate ranking. This system is rich in history, and stems from ancient Okinawan warriors.

It’s never too early to start karate! We boast a Little Warriors Program for children ages 3-6 so your little one can begin to learn the basics of karate, motor control, balance, listening skills and confidence.

We offer a no-frills Women’s Self-Defense Workshop, Corporate Self-Defense Program and a Girls Empowerment Course for young girls ages 7-12.

No need for the added cost of a gym membership! Our distinct center offers a gym, personal training and Fitness Classes on-site. Fitness enthusiasts, from novice to pro, can work out while your child or spouse trains martial arts, or supplement your own karate program with flexibility and strength training exercises to maintain tip-top shape.
