Who can attend classes at Irondequoit Martial Arts?

Our classes are open to students as young as 3 years old. There is no age limit, so don’t let that stop you from trying a class!

What kind of karate do you teach?

We teach Isshin Ryu karate that traces it’s origins to the island of Okanawa, Japan. We are proud to be members of the organization founded by Grand Master Angi Uezu, the Okinawan Isshin Ryu Karate and Kobudo Association, or O.I.K.K.A.

Who will be teaching the classes?

All of our instructors have devoted countless hours to their own study of Isshin Ryu and are regular students in our dojo. With countless years of unique experience and training at their disposal, we are sure you or your child are in the best hands. Best of all, our owner and head instructor Sensei Mark Shavron leads all classes regularly.
