Soke Hausel gives credit to Dai-Soke Sacharnoski who has been his personal instructor and mentor since 1993 for his abilities in martial arts. Hausel state's that "Dai-Soke Sacharnoski is the best martial artist I have ever seen and has provided me with a great model and path to follow".
Hausel says he is also grateful "God has blessed me with all of his accomplishments as a person and polymath". In his early life, Hausel had more or less been thought by some (including his high school counsellor) to have been the least likely to succeed.
Today, Soke Hausel teaches a variety of traditional martial arts to adults and families at the Arizona Hombu dojo in the 60 W Baseline Center in Mesa. All are welcome to visit the dojo and watch classes.
