Welcome to Dobbs Ferry Karate

Established in 1977, we are one of the oldest martial arts schools in Westchester. We pride ourselves on being like a family. Come join us today!


Having been around for as long as we have has allowed us to have a unique perspective on both our students and the community here in Westchester. We balance ourselves between the traditional aspects of martial arts and the fun of our group atmosphere. Shihan works hard to be sure each student receives a solid traditional foundation so that they develop into strong martial artists. Events that are geared towards the kids programming happen year round—including our Summer Program—while our adults get their own special events to explore other martial arts, learn new skills and further their technique. We are proud to be part of Dobbs Ferry for as long as we have been, please stop by our dojo on Main street any time to view a class, speak with an instructor, or take a quick tour of the dojo. If you are interested in the free trial class, please contact Shihan for details and when best to jump in and start your martial arts career!



Your First Class is Free!

Looking for a dojo that has a range of ages both in our Adult program and our Junior program?

We pride ourselves on our “family” atmosphere. The mix of traditional and modern teaching styles makes us unique and we feel, quite addictive! Our program doesn't have a start date—you can begin when you want! We recommend starting in September, but you shouldn't feel as though you've “missed enrollment” at any point. We've included a few quick points that might be helpful!

  • We offer group classes 6 days a week.
  • Private & Semi-Private Lessons are available weekly and can be scheduled with the Chief Instructor.
  • We are a family run business and offer large family discounts to those that enroll more than one family member.
  • We love our parents becoming students! Karate is a great family activity and an important skill for the whole family. Jump in the class on Saturday mornings with your children!
  • Referral incentives are also offered that allow you to save money off tuition every single month!
  • Free trial classes are always offered. We want you and your children to feel comfortable before signing up. Trial classes can be taken any day of the week. No need to schedule an appointment. Just walk in during one of the appropriate class times on the schedule and begin your karate journey! Please wear gym/workout clothes, no need for sneakers, we're barefoot on the dojo mat.
  • Feel free to call us, or email us, with any additional questions. Our staff is available to speak with you after 4pm on weekdays, otherwise please leave a voicemail. 914-693-3707.
