Budo Camp

A Midwest Martial Arts tradition since 2003

 Location: Steiner Academy of Martial Arts, 3908 N 138th St, Omaha, NE 68164

Dates & Times: Saturday, September 19, 2020 – 9:30 am to 5:30 pm & Sunday, September 20, 2020 – 10:00 am to 5:30 pm

Budo Camp began with a simple idea. What if we could bring martial artists together to learn from each other, in an environment where equality and humility are standard? Could we create a learning environment that would be appropriate for all martial artists, regardless of rank?

The word “budo” has been defined as “the spiritual foundation for martial arts; the ethical code on which martial arts are based”. What if we could create a martial arts camp that exemplified the very foundation of martial arts? If you have been searching for the same thing, look no further. Budo Camp is the Midwest’s finest martial arts camp. We believe that studying across disciplines makes us better martial artists. There is no minimum experience level needed to join us for Budo Camp; the only requirements are a positive training attitude and a willingness to see all martial artists as fellow travelers on the path of budo. Don’t wait any longer to start your journey.

This year’s Budo Camp will have a special guest instructor. There will be our normal multi-martial arts seminar on Saturday Sep 19 followed by a special all-day seminar with Dr. Ron Chapél focusing on the Martial Science University American Tactical Chúan-Fa Concepts. This seminar will focus on the important martial/ physical principles and American Chúan-Fa. This is an opportunity to improve and augment your martial skill toolbox and get insight and instruction from an Icon in the Martial Arts World. This seminar is also day one for a special Midwest training camp for Dr. Chapél’s current students.

Budo Camp is an opportunity to meet open minded martial artists from a variety of styles to broaden your scope of experience. If you are an instructor interested in teaching at Budo Camp or if you have styles you wish to explore, please let us know.
