Margo is a great trainer and really caters to the results you want to see. He makes working out fun. Highly recommend for anyone who wants to learn self defense skills and wants healthy long lasting results.
I am an athlete at heart and I found myself completely unhappy with my body and health about a year ago. After trying to work on my self esteem first, I decided in September it was time to get back into fitness like I had been my whole life. I came on thumbtack and scheduled meetings with five different trainers. I met with JJ first and cancelled the rest before I even had a workout with him. Honestly I hired him only based off of his personality and game plan for for getting me back into shape. He literally is one of the funniest people I have met. However he doesn't mess around when it's time to work. And each workout I find that he can push me to limits I didn't know I had. I have lost 24 pounds so far but have become so much stronger and healthier. We weight lift, do cardio, and he has taught me personal defense. I was skeptical paying money to get fit but I'm investing in my health and it truly makes me happy. (He is going to make fun of me for getting sappy on this but whatever he deserves it)
Brian is very knowledgeable in the art of Self Defense. It's apparent from lesson #1 that he has a true passion and intellect for self defense and the teaching of! 5 Stars.
I completed the course Escape to Gain Safety with Miguel and I feel so good about it! I feel stronger and more confident that I can protect myself. Self defense isn’t just good for ladies, I saw many men in the classes that were strong but needed to know the proper techniques. Thanks Miguel!!!
Lila was right on time (early, actually) and hit it off with my girls right away. She got down to business with them quickly and I could tell that although the girls were being challenged they were having fun. I look forward to seeing them progress in self defense technique over the next several weeks.
Johnny is the best there is! There is literally nothing we come up with that he doesn't have a solution for. He cares very much for the safety of his clients and is very patient. I can't imagine a better or more qualified self defense instructor!!
I take a self-defense/kickboxing class with Jorge twice a week. He's an amazing instructor, able to teach practical self-defense and kickboxing concepts while giving me a great workout! The power, speed, and technique of my kicks and punches have improved drastically since training with him. Jorge, thanks so much for your guidance and knowledge. Let's hit those mitts again soon! You rock!
Always very punctual as well as helpful. He has taught me a lot about self defense and how to protect myself in a dangerous situation. I would definitely recommend Vinny to anyone interested.
Great martial arts instructor. We did a general intro of women's self defense, hapkido, taekwondo. Very patient and good for beginners.
Ken and Erin are awesome! They have really changed the way my self and my wife approach fitness ! There knowledge and experience is very apparent from the first work out! I really appreciate how they custom fit each individual to there full potential ! For me and my wife it is equally important to work with someone that is easy going and personable! I can truly say that this dynamic duo is just that to sum it up knowledgeable, personable ,and very professional! I personally would recommend EFV to anyone that is interested in learning the proper ways to work out and build confidence in themselves
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!
Working out with Adam help me get my self confidence back he's personalized service is above the competition if you looking to fight or just get in shape he's the man to train with
Scott's classes really helped my son! We had just moved here and he was getting bullied by some kids at school. After two months my son was able to defend himself and I was surprised to see how much his self confidence grew too
Everything was great! I learned a lot and feel confident in my ability to handle a gun properly in front of camera for filming. The added self defense was a huge bonus! I recommend this instructor. Very knowledgeable and helpful!
Alan is an awesome teacher! He talks to children in their eye-level and always provide welcomed attomsophir to everyone. My sons alway enjoyed his class! And when they got home from his class they taught me how we can self defense! ;)
