Bud Uzoras

Sensei Bud has been a student of martial arts for over 30 years. He holds black belts in two different styles of Karate, and is on the path toward earning a black belt in Jiu Jitsu. He is trained in Kobudō and Muay Thai. Bud’s journey in the martial arts began when he was in grade school. He enrolled in a Karate school after getting bullied repeatedly by kids. His training gave him the knowledge and confidence to protect himself. Bud studied philosophy and religion in college, and earned a bachelor’s degree in theology and philosophy. According to Sensei Bud, good self-defense occurs on the battlefield of the mind, and he is known for teaching “Mind Karate” before “Body Karate”, and even claims to know a few Jedi Mind Tricks. Bud was raised in and around the city of Chicago, specifically in Calumet City. Bud enjoys science, basketball, writing, and playing Magic: The Gathering.
