I occasionally observe my 2 young granddaughters. Sensei is very patient with the younger age groups and does his best to teach basic karate skills as well life lessons (focus, practice, being rewarded for showing improvement).

My daughter (6) and I both attend Chase Karate Academy and love our classes. Sensei Chase is absolutely fabulous with the kids classes and teaches them to focus and also have fun—it’s been wonderful for my daughter! And he transitions to adult classes seamlessly. I always get a lot out of my classes and look forward to them weekly.

There are lots of martial arts studios in the Rochester area that are flashy and have big schools. Chase karate is the perfect answer to those types of dojos. All the classes are taught by master Chris, he is patient with the kids, but also has the ability to push them when they need to be pushed and challenged. My girls gained a lot of self-confidence learning karate, and I highly recommend this school if your kids or you are interested in learning from the best!

Got Questions? We Got Answers

My child isn't athletic. Can he/she still participate in martial arts?

Absolutely. Martial Arts teaches kids to be coordinated, flexible and strong. Kids who don't naturally have these qualities develop them. Kids who do have these qualities develop them even more.

Are these Martial Arts classes fun?

Yes! After all, these are children we're dealing with here. And kids love their fun. We do a variety of games and activities that have kids laughing and smiling. We work hard here - but we play just as hard.

Can Martial Arts cause injury?

Because we place such a huge focus on safety and injury prevention, we're proud to say that injuries are very few and far between with our program. In fact, because Martial Arts gets you in great shape, and makes you strong and flexible, people often see LESS injuries in their lives.

Do you have to be in good shape to take Martial Arts?

Not at all! In fact, many people use martial arts as a way to get in good shape. They come to us out of shape, and quickly become athletic and limber.

Is Martial Arts violent?

No! Because self-defense technique is taught in Martial Arts, it's often thought of as violent. However, the philosophies behind Martial Arts revolve around peace and harmony. The moves are more of a way to become connected with your body. We teach diplomacy and friendship. However, if a violent situation ever arises in your life, you'll have powerful tools to defend yourself and your loved ones.

What's a good age for a child to start Martial Arts?

Honestly, practically every age is a good age to start! We have young children, as well as teenagers. We also have specific programs for adults. So no matter what age - we've got you covered.
