As one friend put it to me awhile ago pearls before swine. This is how I would describe I Liq Chuan. This internal martial art is what I feel embodies the secrets of martial power and strength. It is unlike any other martial art I have experienced and I have experienced a lot ranging from combatives to aikido, to jujutsu to judo. This martial art helps one to focus on whats going on inside you: proper mental state, structure, balance, relaxation and much, much more. The curriculum is simple, but has so much depth to it. Its fantastic for health and self-defense. Sifu Ashe Higgs is a talented instructor and friend who I find to be very, very skilled, patient and generous with his knowledge. He is one of the best I Liq Chuan instructors in the system and is a personal disciple of Sam Chin, another fantastic teacher. If you want to experience a martial art that goes beyond kata and accumulating techniques, that expands your mind and martial abilities this art is one to explore.

Excellent teacher who pays attention to the whole class, as well as the individual as needed. Teaches them basic essential life skills as well as the basic fundamentals of karate.
To anyone interested in traditional martial arts, exercise or just general self improvement I must absolutely recommend Budo Shingikan as strongly as possible. I personally was only looking for a place to try martial arts again 20 years after a short course in college. I didn't expect to find a group of people that treat you as part of their dojo family right from day 1 and sincerely care about you and your interests. They are absolutely open to all people willing to come onto the mat and learn something new; be it a few nights a month or most nights of the week, children & Adults of all ages. All are treated with an equally warm welcome and I must absolutely recommend this to anyone with an interest in learning something new.
As a vivid participant at the gym, i have come to know the trainers very well over the past year and I can confidently say that my experience has more than been positive and beneficial. I am happy to be apart of the family here at the Academy. Check out Reese, he;s the guy to train with if you want to hate your life!
I wanted to have my 3 and 6 year old boys trained in Karate. Mostly for respect and self esteem. Chad has patiently explained the training to me. He shows a real interest in my kids when he is training them.
Excellent instructor with over 20 years experience she really knows how to teach men women and children. Highly recommended
For over 10 years I have had to opportunity to train with Soke Hausel as myself and other students from our School in Utah travels to Arizona at least 1 time per year, and Soke travels here at least 1 time per year. Wished I lived a bit closer so I/we could train more often. Soke is one of the best I have trained with, his knowledge and ability is as great or better that many of the other masters I have had the opportunity to train with in my over 30 years of training. Soke is easy to approach with questions, and is happy of explain or demonstrate to insure that everyone understands properly. He is always able to teach me something or help me improve on what I already know. Todd Stoneking, Kyoshi, Shichi-dan
This course is extremely informative and useful. Although I am female, and this course is most helpful to females, it is also full of tips, tricks and strategies men can use as well. The physical portion is easily adapted to the learners abilities, existing skill and knowledge level and does not require strength or previous martial arts experience. The moves are easy for anyone to learn and to utilize regardless of size or strength or skill level. Sensei is very good at teaching this information and very good at identifying strengths and weaknesses and helping the student overcome the weaknesses to better deliver the self defense moves. I have had previous martial arts instruction and feel that this instructor is very suited to that role and also very knowledgeable about the subject matter. I highly recommend this course and this instructor
Top-notch martial arts education in Phoenix's East Valley. As a long-term student I can attest to the fact that the Sandoval's have an effective method to teaching and one in which students can easily adopt. I wouldn't go anywhere else before speaking with the instructors, students, and parents at Sandoval's!
We love Goshin Karate and Judo Academy in Scottsdale Arizona... Our family has been students here for years. Great family place... We would recommend.
My son has been going to AZ Wado Karate for 2 years now, he loves it, and I must say it has helped him with his confidence, his leadership skills and Discipline. He is a straight A student. He is also part of the competition team which has enabled him to perform in front of an audience. Sensei Marlon Moore is a wonderful instructor that the kids love and respect.He makes the classes fun but he is also strict. A great indoor activity specially in the summer months. I love my son being part of such a wonderful karate school and I highly recommend this school.
