He began his study of martial arts in 1974 in the discipline of Moo Duk Kwan (Tae Kwan Do), under the leadership and direction of Sabumnim Bill Timme at the Ridgewood YMCA. He was introduced to the art of Jujutsu through O'Sensei Michael DePasquale, Sr. (deceased) of Yoshitsune Jujitsu and Hakko-ryu Jujutsu. He continued his study of martial arts under the leadership and direction of Bill Smith, Hanshi in the disciplines of Aikijujitsu, Ken-jutsu and Karate-Do earning the rank and status of Menkyo Kaiden.

Hanshi Chase is the Headmaster and Kaiso of Sentou-ryu Sogo Budo Rengokai, a modern system/style/ryu-ha of Budo, which consists of Aiki-jujutsu, Goshin-jutsu, Katate, Jujutsu, Ken-jutsu and Happo-jutsu (Healing Arts - Reiki). Chase, Kaiso is also the Kaicho (President) of the International Combat Aiki-jujutsu Federation.

"Chase Sensei has demonstrated a true mastery of combative applications of aikijutsu and has some extremely powerful expressions of budo. His own expression of aiki-related arts is complementary to many systems. He has a superb teaching/delivery style and a great "mat rapport" while teaching."
