About Martial Arts America

Martial Arts America has been offering instruction and training in Karate since 1980. Our three branches served the communities of Rochester, Brighton, Pittsford, Henrietta, Penfield, Fairport and Webster (as well as surrounding towns such as Perinton, Gananda, Macedon, Rush and Irondequouit).  Martial Arts America has taught thousands of students the benefits of training in the martial arts. Headed by Matt Dorsey (8th Degree black belt) and a staff of expert instructors and managers, including Kelly Williams, Monika Winkelman, Bryan Winkelman, Andrew Ragazzo, Mark Cardona, Jon Emerson and others, Martial Arts America offers a number of programs for physical fitness and instruction in Karate.

The instructors were able to get across, without saying it in so many words, that what’s imbedded in a child’s ability to look a person in the eye and firmly shake hands is dignity as well as confidence.

This karate experience has boosted Carly’s self confidence and self esteem. This has made her a more mature, a more poised and a more confident person. She has learned that with commitment and sacrifice she can achieve a major goal. This will serve her well in life. Christopher A.

Liana has gained self confidence through karate. This gives her the platform to succeed in anything she sets her mind to. I see this in her school work, horseback riding and day to day interactions with people. Mrs. A
