This man "Trueli" put me on a successful path of fitness, nutrition, self defense and overall well being. From everything to understanding how the body works, correctly performing exercises and sharpening ones reflexes, Eli has so much to offer. He has reveled to me how strong the human body and mind can be. In all honesty, I couldn't be more grateful to have found a trainer that not only cares about achieving the best results in the safest, most efficient way possible, but also who cares about me as an person. With such a powerful style of training and unique personality, I would say give him a call before a better opportunity calls him.

When being taught self defense by him, he went through everything step-by-step and always was had me go through the movement one step at time until I go the hang of it.

Very straight forward, real world applications, which is exactly what we need - just get right down to it. We have tried other self defense courses which spend a lot of time on learning discipline and self control (which is great if that's what someone is looking for) but this jumps right in and we're learning real world techniques in the first minute. Highly recommend and looking forward to the next session.

I love this dojo! its clean, fully equipped and matted. Not like some others schools in the area that just train on carpet and use hard flooring. Blisters on the feet from carpet burns are not fun. Duarte Shotokan teaches Real Karate from a traditional lineage and it is a safe place to train, especially for kids. All the instructors and assistants are very kind and caring too. I have been in class for a few weeks already and I love the intense workouts and practical self defense lessons that are taught. I would recommend Duarte Martial arts Academy to anyone looking for a fun, safe and caring dojo.

    Wow! An hour goes so fast and I get a good workout plus learning Krav Maga. It is a friendly helpful environment that you are only in competition with yourself. Always encouraged to push yourself to do your very best. Lots of one on one because the instructors walk around the students when doing the drills/exercises and make suggestions and corrections as needed. (In Orange county I was charged $100.00 for 45 minutes for a one on one.) They have a wide range of people from children’s classes to adult classes with ages from teens to 70s. The common thread seems that everyone wants to learn Krav Maga, build self-confidence, get stronger and more fit while having fun. Can’t bet that!

      We love Bunda's Kajukenbo!! Grand Master Bunda works great with children and teaches discipline, respect, and hard work. Our son loves going to Kajukenbo and has set goals for himself on what he would like to accomplish. This is a real dojo...not a commercialized franchise. Grand Master is the real thing!! :)

      This is very different from other traditional or martial arts schools because this style emphasizes on the reality of self-defense rather than how to defend yourself in a controlled idealistic situation. Every drill and every exercise that is taught by the school translates to real combat applications such as sparring, sticky hands free flow, and self defense reactions. On the first day I was blown away by Sifu Lin's demonstration of impluse power how he doesn't need muscle or body weight to release the energy from his hand to the opponent causing much discomfort and pain. Looking forward to more hours of intense training!

It is straightforward, using leverage, timing and distance, kicks , punches, joint locks and the fighting mentality . You learn how to use sticks and knives, as you learn the hand-to-hand techniques. We will need a small room or carpeted area to train in. Private lessons will run about 45 per hr. Similar to krav maga and many other arts as Kung fu San Soo is one of the oldest martial arts in the world. Now contracted to teach class at the community center at 1st st. in yucaipa.
