I have a passion for helping community members stay safe while teaching the “art” of martial arts. While teaching techniques that save lives with life skills that work both on and off the mat, our students get the best instruction possible in Rome, NY.

Elizabeth Balick

Bailey’s is incredibly supportive. It is much more than a fitness place. It really like a huge extended family and staff and awesome instructors.

Barb Welch

This school is awesome. The instructors really care about each student. Molly, front desk, goes above and behind to make sure everything goes smoothly no matter what your question or concern is. They encourage you, cheer for u, push u when u can do better. They create an environment that encourages students to support one another and u can see it from the youngest students to the oldest. I love this Karate family!

Sarah Maciolek

I love this karate school. My son started at a different school and when we moved into the area, I was nervous we wouldn’t find a good fit. This school has gone above and beyond my expectations! My daughter takes classes now too and we all love it.
