  Our currently featured dojo is GEM Martial Arts of Webster, NY.  GEM Martial Arts is the result of a chance happening that transpired about 17 years ago.  Sensei Charlie Michels made a phone call to advise Gail Maslich that her son Zach had won free karate lessons as a result of a demonstration at Zach's daycare center.  Soon after Zach started, Gail was inspired to learn as well.
  Sensei Gail Maslich (4th Dan) and Sempai Zach Dries (3rd Dan) opened GEM Martial Arts in 2012.  Together, with their sensei, Renshi Charlie Michels (6th Dan), they share the passion and dedication of teaching Isshinryu. 
  The goal at GEM Martial Arts is to provide quality personal instruction to each student in a peaceful, positive family-like atmosphere.  Their dojo is committed to continuing the teachings of Grand Master Angi Uezu through teaching classes for children, teenagers, adults, and students in wheelchairs.  Sensei Maslich says,"We could not be more honored or proud of all the GEMs who train with us.  And we are grateful to be associated with and guided by Grand Master Christopher Chase, Grand Master Angi Uezu and the OIKKA."
