Martial Arts Child
"I've looked into many dojo's for my son. My son thrives off discipline, structure and tough love. Budo Kai incorporates home, school and the dojo to mold a well rounded individual. Soke, Sesai's and Shihan's teach to the heart and soul of my son. They've reached him in a way no one else has been able to." -- Jessica Leigh
Martial Arts Family
"I’ve been a student of the Budo Kai Martial Arts Institute on and off since the late 90s and there is no better martial arts institute around.
I signed up my daughters, Stephanie and Stacy in 2017 at the ages of 10 and 7...There is no better feeling in the world for a father than to know his girls can take care of themselves both financially and physically. I would highly recommend the Budo Kai Martial Arts Institute to any parent that feels the same way."-- David Butler

"You are treated like family here. A friend and fellow student of the Institute brought me in one morning to check it out and I was immediately welcomed to join in. There is zero intimidation here and everyone is willing to help. There is also a very high concentration of skilled Martial Artists under one roof. I am truly thankful to train here. Always a great learning experience." --Mark Evens
Martial Arts Family
"Rick LeClair and his team of instructors are phenomenal. Both my husband and I, plus all four of our children, grew up in his dojo, working our/their way up through the ranks. His methods teach self-respect, honesty, integrity, and model giving to others- qualities not found in other programs. Even after my children have grown, his mentoring continues as Rick takes time to check on them--The dedication of this dojo to their clients is second-to-none." -- Elaine Gagne
Martial Arts Adult
"This is a great place to learn Martial Arts systems that really work. Ranks are not just "handed out" because you cough up some money every few months. This is a real dojo where members respect each other and you actually must earn your rank. So if your looking for a place to hand you a black belt in 1 or 2 years so you can pat yourself on the back, then this is not the place for you. But, if you are looking for a dojo that will teach you effective systems and your willing to put in the time and commitment, then this is the place for you." -- Erik Serating
"At the Budo Kai Martial Arts Institute, I have gained much personally, and I have been embraced by a trusting and skilled Dojo family with strong lasting relationships to be respected and cherished, ever lastingly." So I ask you, "Are you prepared to defend yourself, the ones you love, and others?" It's personal." -- Tammaris Mitchell
