School History

Sensei Marlon Moore opened one of Arizona’s oldest karate schools under the original name of Arizona Wado Karate in 1976. The school originally was located in Mesa though it moved several times during the following decades in the Mesa, Tempe, Chandler area. In 2019 Arizona Wado Karate was renamed to Chandler Martial Arts Center.
