We have been in business at this location since February of 2000. There are no other martial arts schools in Brockton that has been at their current location as long as us. Len Testa, CEO of the Brockton Uechi-Ryu Karate Academy Inc. began karate training in January 1980 at the Brockton Dojo of Mattson Academy of Karate under the direction of Grandmaster Robert Bethoney. After receiving the 1st degree rank of Shodan in 1983, Len has taught Uechi-ryu Karate to thousands of children at various Brockton Community schools after school programs before opening the BUKA in February 2000.
Len is now the 9th degree rank of Kyudan and 4th degree master rank of Hanshi Sei. He is the program director. He still teaches children, teens and adults of all ranks at BUKA. Many, of which, have received their black belts and are now instructors at BUKA.
The BUKA is affiliated with Grandmaster Bethoney's Bushido Organization, Grandmaster George Mattson's International Uechi-ryu Karate Federation (IUKF), Uechi-ryu International, and Sadaneo Uechi of Uechiryu Karate Association in Okinawa Japan (SOKE).
