I have been working with JJ for about 1 year and 5 months. Great working environment... JJ has helped me lose so much weight and I’ve learned proper workout techniques in this journey. I maxed out at 240 pounds, but today I weight 205 and still Iosing. I would highly recommend sparta academy for anyone looking to pursue a healthy lifestyle. My martial arts has improved tremendously too. JJ is a good trainer on both cross training and martial arts. JJ teaches Brazilian jiu jitsu, Krav Maga, and Muay Thai for martial arts. JJ would encourage you to come to class as many times you can to see results and improvements. If you ever need to lose weight or learn martial arts, then JJ is the man!

I’ve been going to Summit Fitness and specifically training with Michelle since about March, 2015. She’s such an awesome trainer, I love and respect her approach to training in that she incorporates a variety approaches, activities, and exercises that range from the typical to the not so typical. For example, for strength training we of course use weights and resistance but she also routinely incorporates yoga and martial arts exercises into the mix which keeps it both interesting and at times dare I say fun! I would also describe her approach to training as being holistic in that she recognizes that it’s not just about building up one’s strength and cardio; flexibility, diet, deep stretching, etc., are as equally important and sometimes entire sessions are devoted to just that which as a long-time runner I know my legs desperately need. I really can’t say enough about her, other things that have been huge plusses for me are 1- she’s a female trainer and as such she has been able to provide a level of comfort I’m not sure I would be able to have with a male trainer especially when doing certain exercises or taking my body measurements and 2- how attentive she is to the needs and goals of all her clients. She genuinely cares about us and her actions prove that… just ask the clients who she has gone athletic shoe shopping with or has met at the track to jump start a running regiment.

I'm enjoying learning Johnny's combination of Krav Maga and other forms of martial arts. He's patient, great at explaining the mechanics behind moves, and offers me options when one move proves difficult. If you work with him one on one, he custom designs the training and pacing for your needs. I'm not looking to compete, just protect myself and family when I travel. So with Johnny, I got up and running quickly with basic moves on day one. You won't spend weeks learning ornate movements as you might in other martial arts. You'll learn how to end a conflict as quickly as possible, from day one. Highly recommended.

Jorge is an exceptional trainer, teacher, coach, and motivator. He teaches me boxing and various forms of martial arts and each day that I work with him I learn so much -- about myself, about the craft, about Jorge's skills, and Jorge's abilities and patience as a teacher. I can feel myself making progress after every session with Jorge. His ability to break down movements and describe how they all fit together is incredible. He weaves in breath work, ancient wisdom, and practical skill application into every lesson. He positively challenges you to do your best each time, and his fabulous attitude and cheerfulness is contagious. I can't recommend him highly enough! You will not be disappointed if you choose to work with Jorge!

Sifu Walden is a skillful martial artist and a great instructor. He is masterful in the use of weapons with superior trapping skills. His teaching methods will bring the necessary attributes that will make you in to a competent fighter, capable of defending yourself. My favorite arts to practice are Panantukan and Pananjakmam (Filipino dirty boxing & kicking arts), Silat and Combat Sambo. My best experience at the Kamiya kan Academy was the day when I started Flowing from weapons to empty hand, from long range to trapping range to ground fighting, from art to art. Effortlessly like Bruce Lee said feeling not thinking ; becoming like water. I am sure you will enjoy every class the same way I do.

About

We have been teaching Brazilian martial art for over 30 years. Our goal is to help people to have a healthier life.

About

The American Kenpo Jiu Jitsu Academy opened in 1990, and for over two decades, we have been serving the community, helping hundreds of children, teenagers and adults to develop confidence, respect, focus, concentration, physical fitness, and other unique benefits of a martial arts education. As instructors, we make a commitment to our community: We do whatever it takes to help each student become successful, not only in the martial arts, but also "achieving their black belt and beyond" in every area of life. In their own words (Feedback from our students and their families): "I love that the instructor are great with the smaller kids while maintaining a healthy and reasonable level of discipline and respect in class. "I have see my 4 year old participate in class and practice at home, but watching him during testing was a source of great pride; to see him put his best foot forward in front of peers and older, much older than himself, was priceless. "American Kenpo Jiu Jitsu Academy has been a great outlet not just for burning energy or keeping busy, but to learn discipline outside the parent-child realm." Lynn S. - Kids Program "I would like to take this opportunity to thank the teachers, Mohamad and Jose, for my daughter, Reiko's amazing transformation! This is a very significant, before-and-after story. I encourage all parents, who raised their child to be a responsible, productive and polite citizen in this world, to consider enrolling their child. "Our daughter is a kind and gentle spirit raised with morals, integrity and principles any parent would be proud of; unfortunately, her kindness and good nature made her an easy target for those individuals who were not raised with similar values. "After a few months of training at the academy, she acquired the confidence and strength to be able to stand up for herself, for what is right and even to stand up for others who were not able to defend themselves! "Armed not with weapons, but with the confidence that springs from self-respect, loyalty, discipline and honor, she now has the tools to better face the challenges of this world. "Any parent who wants to invest in his or her child's future should consider investing in martial arts. This is not a trendy gift, but rather, one that transcends and is life altering!" Respectfully, Mary and Andrew K. - Juniors Program "I can't thank Mohamed and Jose for all they have taught me over the past few months. I have come to realize that within me, I have the inner power to change myself for the better. "Mohamed's teachings and techniques help a student to learn about their inner strengths and weakness, while continuing to build confidence in the art of American kenpo and jujitsu. Jose was not only patient, but very knowledgeable in his skills as well, always willing to stick by my side until I got the technique perfected. "I look forward to hearing more success stories of the new students and recurring students who have found their own inner power because of the great teachings of the American Kenpo and Jujitsu Academy in Woodland Hills. "All my best to future students, Jose and Mohamed. Thank you for all you have taught me!" Sincerely, Leslie R. - Adults Program "American Kenpo Jiu Jitsu is a great martial art form, and I enjoy the constant challenge and learning. Everyone at the academy helps one another, and we really have a great group of instructors and students that evolved over the years. "It is the best! "The instructors are great, the knowledge and understanding of kenpo and jiu-jitsu, the process of learning, the exercise, challenge, friendships, and great teachers make this the only place for me to train." Norm K. - Adults Program
