COVID-19 Update
To our valued Budo Family Members: we have decided to temporarily cancel our regular group classes until May 16th, effective immediately. We are currently providing online classes to all members with active memberships. We will closely monitor the progress of the Coronavirus and will keep you updated if it is determined we are able to open our facility sooner or need to extend the closure. Please follow us on Instagram and/or Facebook for our latest updates.
If you have any questions, please contact us at 805-704-7666. Click here to read a note from Eric Sandahl.

No "Has-Been"s or "Never-Was"s here...At the Budo Ryu, ALL of our instructors are dedicated to continue their training and perfecting their art. Our instructors are all ACTIVE competitors in their art; when they're not teaching, they are training! Our Krav Maga instructors all maintain current certifications through Krav Maga Worldwide, and are encouraged to continue their tactical and martial arts training in other areas including firearms training through Spartan Tactical Resources, wilderness and survival training through Krav Maga Worldwide's Krav vs. Wild seminars, and tactical movement and Israeli SWAT tactics through Aaron Cohen's IMS Counter Terror School. All of our Fitness Instructors have qualifications through NASM and/or hold certifications as a MonkeyBar Fitness Natural Trainer directly under Jon Hinds, or Russian Kettlebell Certification directly under RKC Chris Holder.
