Founder of Reid's Martial Arts Grandmaster Larry Reid:
The late Grandmaster Larry Reid opened International Self Defense in 1965 and later Reids Martial Arts Supply in Sacramento California.  Grandmaster Reid held the rank of 10th Degree Black Belt in the art of Kenpo Karate and was promoted to Black Belt by Grandmaster Al Tracy and Joe Lewis.  He was a former hand-to-hand combat instructor for the U.S. Army and trained law enforcement agency officers including the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.  Grandmaster Reid was also elected Chairman of the New York Citizens Committee on rape prevention, in which he was instrumental in pioneering several rape prevention programs for various New York school agencies.

Today Reid's Martial Arts is owned and operated by 10th Degree Black Belt Grandmaster Linda Reid  and son 7th Degree Black Belt Daren Reid.  They are carrying on a tradition of martial arts training that started over 50 years ago.

 All classes are taught by qualified Black Belt Instructors who will guide you step by step through your training.
