The Triangle's
Premier Martial Arts Dojo.

Swing by Chapel Hill Quest Martial Arts and see for yourself how inspiring you can be! We’re much more than just a martial arts facility. Our beautiful Japanese-style dojo was designed by a professional architect to help capture the warm and inviting atmosphere enjoyed by our students.

Whether you’re looking for training in self-defense, functional strength development, or intense and demanding martial arts skills, you’ll find classes to suit any of your personal goals. Since we opened our doors in 1998, we’ve had countless students from all walks of life enter and become a part of our community. Our students mainly hail from Chapel Hill, Carrboro and Durham North Carolina, but our unique martial art brings others from much farther to study with us. Come start with us today, wherever you are, and amaze yourself with how far you can go.

We primarily teach To-Shin Do Ninja martial arts, the 1200 year old Japanese martial art of the legendary Ninja warriors. We have Ninjutsu classes for everyone, from four- to seven-year olds (the Mighty Dragons), youth, and adults of all ages, from beginner to expert.

Throughout the day, you also have the opportunity to take intense classes in kickboxing "Quest Kick", power and strength conditioning "Quest Fit", and "Women's Self-Defense" designed for practical everyday life scenarios. But don’t worry if you’re just starting out! Our instructors love finding the right level of challenge appropriate to a student's fitness needs. What sets us apart is the individual approach we take with each student.

Please take your time browsing our web site, and if you have any questions at all, feel free to give us a call at (919) 489-8893!

Chapel Hill Quest Martial Arts welcomes people of any age, culture, religion, race, gender, political belief, nationality, sexual orientation, gender identity or marital status who share our commitment to safe and effective martial arts training in a strong community.
