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!

Margo has a lot of passion for martial arts and it comes out in his training sessions. After only a few sessions I saw improvement in my form and confidence. I would recommend this to anyone regardless of their experience level.

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!

Great martial arts and fitness gym for any age or experience. From the athletes who want to push themselves further and compete in mixed martial arts, to the ones who just want to set a health goal and smash it, and for those who just want to learn some self defense. Great coaches and friendly environment with other members.

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.

    Verified review

    My name is Ciro, I am from Italy and, since 1996, when I went to California for my first time, it was great to meet a special man as Tom Hagan. I trained with Coach Tom Hagan and his class was something unique which I haven't seen till that moment. During my training with Tom, it was amazing to grow and improve myself in gymnastics exercises and martial arts skills, blended together with part of the Chinese philosophy. People who want to discover themselves, who are also searching their own way to express their mental and physical skills, must try Tom Hagan's training method.

    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.

      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
