World Budo Alliance

Welcome to the Official Website of World Budo Alliance. Established in 1998 by Kyoshi Dave Degrouchie, World Budo Alliance (WBA) stands as a unifying platform for martial artists of diverse styles. Our headquarters proudly reside in Bathurst, New Brunswick, Canada.

I am Grand Master Art Mason, honored to have served as the International President of the World Budo Alliance in 2000, appointed by Kyoshi Degrouchie. Together, we diligently crafted a robust global organization that extends a myriad of services to the martial arts community.

Revitalizing the Legacy: World Budo Alliance Returns

Originally conceived as a non-political organization with a focus on orphaned martial artists, the World Budo Alliance (WBA) swiftly garnered international recognition. Regrettably, due to life changes affecting both Kyoshi Degrouchie and myself, the project was temporarily discontinued and shelved.

Now, with the support of numerous esteemed martial artists from around the globe, I am proud to announce the revival of this crucial organization.

New Beginnings, Expanded Horizons

The World Budo Alliance is back with a renewed mission and exciting new features. While staying true to our roots, we have expanded our initiatives to encompass a broader spectrum of services and opportunities for martial artists worldwide.
