Welcome to the Rhode Island Budo Academy! Based in Seekonk Massachusetts, The Academy promotes martial arts, physical fitness, and self defense through traditional Japanese Budo arts. We gladly accept Women and Men high school ages and up. For pre-teen classes please contact us for info on the dojo’s family Shotokan Karate classes!

     The Martial Arts were developed hundreds of years ago as a means to defend oneself in a combat situation. But, what the average person doesn’t realize is that the Martial Arts are also a wonderful tool to unlock the human potential.

     Classes are taught in a relaxed but challenging atmosphere gearing the student towards constant, steady improvement in their lives as well as in their martial arts skills. Sensei Tom Duffy takes a personal interest in the development of each individual student.

We look forward to you joining our family in the Kai
