Mission Statements  

  • To promote the culture and history of Okinawa, particularly those aspects related to the martial arts, and to embrace all other cultures and their indigenous methods of self-defense.  

  • Live Life Daily In A State Of Excellence and Appreciation. 
    Teach Others To Do The Same. 




The RyuBuKan Dojo was established by Pedro J. Bernardy as a  means of giving back to his instructors and their arts.  The name RyuBuKan is formed from the Ryukyu culture from which the basis of our studies originate (RYU), the expression of martial art as a way of life (BU), and a home for all who wish to learn and share from these efforts (KAN).   The RyuBuKan Dojo is a family affair where lessons are earned by consistent effort and positive attitude.  Students come and go but our hope is that the strength and sincerity learned here will carry them through all of life's challenges.
