Sensei Lynda D. Nelson is the Founder and CEO of Quest Martial Arts Academy. Ms. Nelson is a 5th Degree Black Belt in Isshin-Ryu Karate. She began training in 1992 and within a year was placed in an accelerated teaching program due to her natural athletic ability as well as her aptitude to teach students of all ages. Karate became her life passion immediately as she recognized the unlimited opportunities available to teach students of all ages skills which easily transferred outside the karate academy's walls.

In 1995 after being laid off from a health care computer service corporation position, she immediately began plans for Quest Martial Arts Academy. She spent months examining karate facilities across the country looking for the best of the best. It was during this time Sensei Nelson laid the groundwork for Quest.

Quest opened in its current location in 1997, a 5800 square foot state-of- the-art facility, in Barrington, NH. Under the leadership and guidance of Sensei Nelson, Quest is repeatedly identified as the leader in the 10 local communities it serves.

Today, Sensei Nelson's vision for Quest Martial Arts Academy is to utilize the martial arts a vehicle for encouraging students of all ages to develop empowering leadership skills. The programs are specifically designed to teach students how to be physically, mentally, emotionally and socially active and powerful. Quest students have become and will continue to be leaders in our local communities as well as national leaders across our country and beyond.
