About us Budo Providence, is currently located in the South East Village of Avalon Park. One must truly read Sekai Sokeshi Luis Alba, Hanshi., Biography to appreciated the history he holds amongst our Traditional Arts of Today. He is one whom truly holds Tradition alive, unlike any other Shihan or Masters of our current time. To see him execute techniques against many or just one apponent is truly magical, what can only be called supernatural. A blessing to encounter his pressence. He is a man of True Spirit, and the top leaders of the Arts today too have Blessed him as such.
For many years hes only affiliated himself, and taught Masters of the Arts. After much thought and consideration he has finally opened Budo Temple to the public. Charging nothing at all for those whom are Instructors, Masters, or Sensei's of the Arts. Those of non tradition or deep background he merly charges a small percent, a simple donation as he puts it. Budo Temple is and has been run by the many Donations of the students through out the World. For those new to the Arts he merly asks dedication.
"Dedication to the Arts, is truly a must if you wish to succed not only in Budo but life as well. Budo cant be learned through merly reading a book or what's taught in class. You must dedicate at home on your time off to Master what i've taught you. If i teach you something, I expect you to master it. If you come back to me in a week and have forgoten my teachings then you'll never master the Arts, Time is truly of the Essence, we'll leave it at that". LA.

Note: Sekai Sokeshi Luis F. Alba, Hanshi. Comes from a direct lineage of O'Sensei's most important students since before the war and after. His Great Grandfather trained under O'Sensei in Japan. As so did his son SokeShi's Grandfather Guillermo Alba after the war. They where both military men in their time. Many cultures of Japan are shared with those of Colombia for the Yokoyama Ocean line has joined them as one for thousands of centuries. Shiba, Tanaka, and Zusuki Sensei are amongst the first and most influential Teachers of Sokeshi. O'Sensei's Budo was then being taught to Sokeshi not in a school but as gift, a passing of Wisdom, from father to Son. Shiba and Zusuki Sensei raised him as their own child for many years teaching Sokeshi under the roof of their homes, their only student at the time. Many familes from all over the World where just moving to the big city New York. Passing their wisdom to a skilled child had become a great Honor for these two Masters of the Arts.
These Ranks that are seen above is how Sokeshi sees the certain individuals whom can pass on his gift. For all of them put together do bring forth Sokeshi's true Art. There are over Twelve Thousand Students that have trained under Sokeshi through the many years, though not all are allowed to teach nor traine the public. The names listed here Are the most current and active individuals of today.
"Just like many of us, when our loved ones move on, and we dream of them. So do I with O'Sensei. He currects my posture and shows me correct movement in my dreams. He helps guide my Sword when in my hands. As if I where his Grandson we've shared laughes, smiles, spoken of many things in life, and the Universe itself. I believe we can all have this connection. For the Spirit of Budo, is but a breath away". L.A.

AikiBudo Foundation of Traditional Aikido. "World Wide Legacy of O'Senei Morihei Uyeshiba".
We have began the creation of a Federation which will welcome all current Budokas regardless of Affiliation. With it we have started a Foundation to raise money not only to continue managing out site but to begin the construction of a Large Dojo in Central Florida, where visitors and UchiDeshi can come and enjoy our way of trainning, and have the chance to also visit all of our Local Parks. By doing so we expect to help our economy by providing jobs to all of our Memebers and non Practitioners of the Arts.
