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!

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!

Sensei Ali Jafari is an extremely experienced and creative instructor who continually teaches the "art" in martial arts with great patience and respect for students of all ages and abilities. In my 13 years of martial arts training with Sensei Jafari, I have always appreciated the sense of community spirit he fosters in our dojo. Through our training, we as students learn from each other and support each other in our efforts to reach our goals - whether it be to get in shape mentally and physically, achieve more balance in life, or simply to become a better human being.

I have been a student of Sparta Academy for several months now (nearly a year) and could not be happier with my experience. I have attended their cross training classes consistently and have experienced remarkable results physically as I am constantly encouraged to push myself further than I thought myself capable while being held accountable for doing every move correctly and never putting myself in a position to sustain injury. Beyond this though, I cannot speak highly enough about my experience in their martial arts classes and in particular, through personal training with Kiara in Krav Maga. She is professional, encouraging, but also demands the best out of her students in every way. She has helped me to perfect my technique, improve on my skills, and gain a newfound confidence through a sport I was hesitant to even begin. I have been told I look taller, leaner, and carry a more pronounced confidence in myself through my experiences here. The community of students and instructors is highly encouraging and always challenging you to push your limits and give your best effort. I would highly recommend any of the classes and instructors/coaches at Sparta Academy.

I studied with Master Frank for about a year before moving out of Southern California. My experience could not have been better. He knows the martial arts extremely well and is an excellent instructor. He is particularly good with children, and his fees are very reasonable.
