It is the purpose of the U.S. Budo Kai-Kan to promote the development of goodwill and integrity for our students and within the martial arts community by encouraging the practice of a variety of arts under one roof.

All classes are overseen by Chief Grand Master Rico Guy and taught by his highly trained black belts. He is founder and head of the U.S. Budo Kai-Kan dojo. Mr. Guy is ranked as follows: Iaido (Japanese Swordsmanship) 9th degree; Kendo (Japanese Fencing) 8th degree; Goju-Ryu Karate 10th degree; and in Go Kempo-Jitsu he is the founder and 10th degree.

The operative word of the dojo is Budo; the way of martial discipline. Through the practice of Budo, one may develop oneself mentally, physically and otherwise. A daily involvement with the acquisition and application of combat technique tends to create unity of mind and body, heightening awareness of oneself and one’s environment, thus increasing sensitivity to other people.

These are the primary elements of self-defense. The practical and philosophical ramifications of Budo are broad and deep, and they are accessible to all people.

Our dojo teaches Iaido, Kendo, Goju-Ryu Karate and Go-Kempo Jitsu.
