I am teaching Shorin-ryu karate and Kobudo classes at Banning's Landing (100 East Water Street, Wilmington, CA 90744). Private lessons are available.
Learning American Kenpo Karate under Rick Jeffcoat has been a complete experience. Rick Jeffcoat is adept at teaching students of many ages, backgrounds, and learning types. I find myself at awe that in one minute he can dissect and simplify techniques that I am struggling with and then the next minute challenge and enrich techniques that I thought I had felt comfortable with. He is adept at both teaching by action and by words. Best of all, I find his "what if" scenarios valuable to bring practicality to the art. The quality of life changes he's been making to the studio has also made it feel like a second home. The place is kept clean and comfortable.
Our instructors all started out at Red Dragon Karate as beginners. We don't hire from outside. All of our instructors care about the students and their progress. They take pride in their acheivements.
Sensei Ali Jafari is an excellent martial art trainer. He has been my martial art instructor for the past twenty years during which not only I have learned karate techniques and instructions, I have also learned many life lessons from him. His patience, enthusiasm, and willing to teach are among many positive qualities that he demonstrates on a consistent basis. He is exceptionally patient with children and individuals who may not learn as quickly as other student. Sensei Jafai is is extremely knowledgeable in Shotkan Karate, Taekwondo, and using weapons in martial art. Sensei Jafari always brings energy and positive attitude to the class. He often finds a balance between paying attention individually to the highest ranked students as well as the lowest rank person. Sensei Jafari is very observant and cares about every individuals progress. He is well informed about what specific and detail areas a student needs to work on in order to be successful in Karate and other areas of life.
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.
My children have been under the instruction of Reginald Venson for years and I couldn't be happier with our experience. He disciplines all the children but with a certain level of compassion and encouragement. He has helped my boys perfect their karate skills and also makes sure they are successful in school. Its been a pleasure working with him.
The service and training is better than expected.
I am a 14-time world champion in forms, fighting, and weapons. I teach men, women, and children of all ages in martial arts, Zumba, MMA, fitness, gymnastics, self-defense, stretching, etc. I enjoy getting you fit and building self confidence, self control, and self discipline.
ISKF Santa Monica offers the real thing: traditional Shotokan karate. We offer Shotokan karate group and private lessons for adults and children, with one of the highest-ranking instructors in North, South, and Central America.
Erik is one of the best teachers of karate that one can find. Even though I have moved a number of times out of the area, I still come to Victory Karate for my training. For the intense workouts, the discipline and commitment to excellence, It's worth it.
Scott is an excellent teacher. I took karate classes from him for 2 years and he always incorporated fun in to serious training. He is dedicated to his work, and loves to teach as much as you will love to learn from him. Highly recommend!
Kevin James is one seriously dangerous karate man! He personally trained the management team of StaffPro Securty, the nation's leading sporting event security staffing firm. Everyone in attendance praised his outstanding delivery of content and professional manner in which classes were conducted. You're not going to find a better instructor anywhere.
American Kenpo is an art of perpetual change and it breaks away from ancient traditional philosopies. This art specializes in physics and geometric motions which makes American Kenpo the most scientific martial art on the system!
To whom it may concern, I have had the pleasure of knowing Maurice Gomez for many years and hold him in the highest regard. Hes an excellent martial artist who can both perform the art of American Kenpo and teach it as well. Having shared the mat with Maurice I can personally attest to his skill and knowledge. Aside from being an excellent martial artist, Maurice is a great friend as well, who Im proud to have as my brother in the art. His attentiveness and genuine concern for his students is always apparent, which makes him not only a great teacher, but a great leader as well. Maurice is one of those instructors who understand that theres more to the martial arts than the memorization of routines. He actually teaches the art with such sophistication and professionalism that his students have the opportunity to become great teachers as well.
