Training Body & Mind

Paradise Valley School of Karate was established in 1981 under Sensei Mike Wall, an 8th Dan in the traditional Matsumura Seito Shorin Ryu style of Karate. Sensei Wall has worked hard over the last 40 years to establish himself as a valued member of the Paradise Valley community through programs that enrich not only the mind and body, but also the spirit.

Our school offers a comprehensive set of programs to fit anyone's needs. Our Kids Karate programs are the perfect way to instill life skills for kids starting as young as age 4 and we train all the way into adulthood. We also offer After School programs to incorporate Karate training and homework time - even some play time as well! Alongside all of that, we also offer regular Women's Self Defense Seminars, partner with FKA Phoenix for Kali instruction, and support and help our students move on to competition in forms, sparring, and weapons.
