Special Events

Dear Martial Arts America Students and Families,
Due to the COVID-19 health situation and the county/federal recommendations, starting Monday March 16th our dojo will be pausing in-person classes and will be setting up online training opportunities and provide Progress Challenge activities for our students. We will have the home training program in place within a few days.
Each week, on the weekend, we will assess to see if holding in person training will resume (my guess is 1 – 2 weeks). We will continue to communicate with you through email, our dojo Facebook pages and notifications through our dojo app.
We understand the difficulties everyone is facing at this time. We hope you will join our MAA instructor team in staying calm, making smart choices and doing the very best we can to socially distance and protect the vulnerable during this short term pause in our in-person training.
The study and practice of the martial arts is essentially one of strengthening the mind, body and spirit to overcome the challenges of life. Let’s get through this challenging time together by applying the life skills of our dojo.
Thank you for your support and understanding. Please contact us with any questions, concerns, suggestions and/or words of support.
Sensei Matt Dorsey
Sensei Kelly Williams
Sensei Jon Emerson
p.s. if you did not receive our email, please contact us at info@rochesterkarate.com and give us your current email and students name.
