It will be hard to find a place that even comes close this gym. The place is not intimidating at all. There are friendly staff members that answer any of your questions. And it has SO many things to offer. Ok, onto the review. My 6 year daughter has been training with Ekata for 2 years and I am very pleased with her progress. The instructors are top notch and very patient. I also like the values that Ekata teaches the kids. They learn to be still through meditation. They learn manners, discipline, and how to handle dangerous situations. The kids curriculum is very well thought out and encompasses so many things that make your child a better martial artist and also a better person. The founders of Ekata are both accomplished martial artists. Sifu Ed and Sifu Joann are experts in Jeet Kune Do, Savate, Muay Thai, just to name a few. Sifu Ed also happens to be a professor at UCLA where he studies the the effects of movement- based awareness training on children and adults to improve their ability to focus and learn more effectively. Sifu Joann is one of the first women in the United States to receive the coveted rank of “Silver Glove” (Black Belt Equivalent) in Boxe Francaise Savate and she was voted the first female president of the American Federation of Boxe Francaise Savate. LIke I said earlier the instruction and professionalism here are top notch. I also became a student at Ekata about a year ago and I can honestly say I’m in better shape now than I have been the past ten years. That’s saying a lot because my job requires me to be in pretty good shape. After 6 months of training at Ekata I noticed I was faster, stronger, more flexible, and had much more energy. Ekata offers Jeet Kune Do, Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Savate, Escrima, Hip Hop Dance, Yoga, child care, a full gym, personal training, a meditation room, massages, and most importantly a positive environment to learn in. Before you lock in on a martial arts gym here in SCV you need to come in and see what Ekata Training Center has to offer. You will not be disappointed.
