Karate and Kobudo School in Mesa
Soke Hausel explains at the Arizona Hombu martial arts school in Mesa Arizona, that Shorin-Ryu Karate has a long heritage traced back to the 6th century at the Shaolin Temple in China.
Legend suggests that a Buddhist monk named Bodhidharma traveled from India to the northern Henan province of China in order to teach Zen philosophy at the Shaolin Temple. The time of this event is unknown, but some suggest it many have occurred at 525 AD.
