Dojo Spotlight: Scottsdale Martial Arts Center


A Martial Arts Success Story


As part of our ever--growing effort to expand the KarateMart.com blog into different facets of the martial arts, we want to take a moment each month to highlight one particular school or dojo. Our goal is not only to give recognition to those schools out there doing it right, but also to provide a resource from which other dojos may learn. We want to help give a boost to those martial artists out there that may struggling to maintain a successful martial arts program.

Whether you need a fresh outlook on the direction you school is taking, help on your latest marketing idea, or just a few tips that might help bolster enrollment, it is our genuine hope that our Dojo Spotlight series will help.

So let's jump right in to our very first Dojo Spotlight shall we?
Did Someone Ask For 5 Minutes Of 'Mark Of The Ninja' Gameplay Footage?


Klei Entertainment's ambitious foray into the often overlooked world of 2-D stealth games has garnered some serious attention in the past few months. Mark of the Ninja has easily been one of this year's most hotly anticipated Xbox Live Arcade releases. And if the videos we've seen have been any indication, the hype is well deserved indeed.

If you've been following our tidbits on this stylish stealth game, you'll be able to appreciate the above gameplay video. Who are we kidding? Anyone with even half an inkling to stalk through the shadows as a ninja on a mission will get all giddy watching this footage.

Too bad the game itself isn't out until next month (October 2nd to be exact). In slightly related news, I shall be taking a week off from this blogging thing as of October 3rd. For that is the week I must make my official mark as a feared ninja by way of my Xbox.

UPDATE: So apparently Mark of the Ninja came out last week and nobody told me?! What do I pay you guys for?! Seriously, this game was an insta-buy for me after playing through the demo. Awesome. Just awesome.

Cybernetic Ninja Fights Undead Hordes In New Video Game Teaser Trailer 'Yaiba'


It perhaps goes without saying but, come Zombie Apocalypse Hour, I'm heading for samurai sword and fast. Handguns and rifles? Pfft. They're all well and good till the ammo starts running low. Meanwhile, you know what doesn't run out of ammo and is perfect for separate zombified head from body? Yep. The aforementioned samurai sword. But I digress...

The above teaser trailer for Yaiba keeps the deets to a minimum but what we do know is this: There's a one mean looking ninja with a robot arm slicing up a plethora of zombies. In Yaiba's case, that's enough awesome to earn my money, I just need to know when this masterpiece will be released!

And for those skeptical few out there, let me remind you that said game comes from none other than the legendary Keiji Inafune, the mind behind such classics as Megan Man and Resident Evil. Did I also mention he was behind Dead Rising? So yeah, he's earned his zombie merit badge and them some.

Stay tuned to the good ol' KarateMart Martial Arts Blog and you'll know more as soon as we do!

When a game is going this strong after 18 years (yes, I felt ancient just typing that sentence) you know something very, very right is going on.
