For years, the club sponsored free self-defense clinics for University students, staff, faculty and members of the Laramie Community. The club activities included water training in the UW pool, and numerous clinics and seminars on advanced martial arts. Members of the club traveled to martial arts clinics in Casper and Saratoga Wyoming, Murray Utah, Kentucky, Maine, Dallas, Florida Missouri and North Carolina. Due to Hausel's connections in the martial arts, he also brought two world-famous martial artists to the University of Wyoming to teach special clinics - Dai Soke Sacharnoski, 12th dan and O Sensei Tadashi Yamashita, 9th dan.
In 1999, Sensei Hausel reached one of the highest levels in martial arts when he was promoted to grandmaster of Shorin-Ryu karate, which brought prestige to the university karate club.
