Martial arts training at US Budokai Karate Association - improving the world one person at a time.
US Budokai Karate Association was founded in March of 1987 by William J. Reid. Prior to that, Mr. Reid was the chief instructor of Albany Seido Karate, one of the largest branches of World Seido Karate. The World Seido Karate Organization, based in New York City, was founded in 1976 by Kaicho Tadashi Nakamura. Kaicho Nakamura, a ninth degree black belt, trained under Mas Oyama in Japan, and in 1969 he brought Kyokushinkai Karate to America. He taught many students in Kyokushinkai until he formed the World Seido Karate Organization.
Over the past 30 years, Mr. Reid has trained thousands of students in the Capital District, many of his students have gone on to ivy league colleges, become educators, and successful business leaders themselves. In May of 2005, William Reid was honored with the rank of Eighth Degree Black Belt and the title Hanshi.
At US Budokai Karate Association, we believe martial arts education is a vehicle for self-discovery and positive change.Martial arts training helps teach respect, self-discipline and responsibility, as well as condition the body and teach self-defense. Budokai Karate helps to develop character, spirit, and strong positive attitudes. Using as much traditional Japanese theory as possible, we strive to build a strong mind, body and spirit, which leads to self-esteem.
