Sensei Mark Chast

Mark started studying Judo back in 1987 in Athens, NY and reached the rank of Shodan in 1994 at the age of 17. He had to take a break from the sport back in 1997 and only recently returned to the mat in the summer of 2007 here with Bushido Kai. Mark still enjoys the occasional competition and likes to travel and support the club team in whatever way he can. He is a recent RIT graduate from the Electrical Engineering department (BS/MS) and currently works at RIT full time. When he isn't training or working he enjoys getting outside for camping, biking, or just hanging out with friends.
