Karate – Forward – Always

Step Forward Martial Arts brings the joy of karate training to the Rochester, Brighton, Henrietta, and Pittsford New York area. Conveniently located on Monroe Avenue, near Twelve Corners in Brighton. We strive to bring karate training to students of all ages and abilities. Following in the footsteps of the karate masters before us, we seek to push the limits of our students through the traditional art of Issin-ryu Karate. 

 All our karate classes are small and inclusive, bringing the mental, physical, and emotional challenges of karate training to students of all abilities. Our Little Dragons (3-6 years old), Youth (6-12 years old), and Teen/Adult Classes (13+) specifically focus on skills, techniques, and discussions that focus on what you are seeking to get out of training. We also offer one-on-one classes for students that would prefer a more private experience. 

 We seek to optimize the mental, emotional, and physical benefits of karate training for all of our students. In addition, as a result of our experience and passion, we strive to serve an otherwise underserved population, students with special needs. We have extensive experience in working with students who struggle with: Autism, Aspergers, Tourets, Down Syndrome, Learning Disabilities, and much more. We are happy to say that all class options are available for students with special needs: once or twice a week small group classes or one on one classes. Please call or email us to check current availability.
