Browse these Krav Maga lessons with great ratings from Thumbtack customers in San Gabriel.
Very professional, thorough and patient which worked for as a beginner in this kind of fitness. My only con is that I can't do as many lessons as I'd like. Overall a great trainer.
I've been training at Sparta Academy for several months now and could not be happier with my experience. The environment crafted by the instructors and trainers in the classes could not be more encouraging or positive. Not only are the instructors and owners remarkably encouraging, you will find the community of students to have the same attitude. There is always someone willing and ready to help if you have any questions. Regardless of your level of experience, either in the Martial Arts or Cross-Training (&lifting), you will never be disappointed with how you will be pushed and encouraged to move past your boundaries and constantly improve. Learning Krav Maga these past few months (bear in mind, I started with absolutely zero experience), has not only improved my fitness immensely, but left me with a surprising amount of confidence that I wasn't expecting as a result of these classes. I would absolutely recommend taking any of the classes offered. I particularly enjoy learning martial arts, as it's a discipline I never imagined I could do but has quickly become a passion of mine. Also, I love attending the morning cross-training classes as I've learned new techniques to increase my strength while always ensuring I'm performing movements correctly and will not injure myself (I've previously had several shoulder surgeries). Large egos are unwelcome, so have no fear if you are very new to any of the disciplines, as you will be welcomed just as much as the most advanced student in the class. I highly recommend Sparta Academy. It's not all serious either, in case you're concerned. It's a community of highly professional, but real people who aren't afraid to joke and laugh in between sets. Everyone is personable and welcoming, and you're certain to get your money's worth.
I originally was looking for a trainer who could teach me self-defense for a trip I was going to be taking where these skills might be needed in case of emergency. I found Vinny on thumbtack and was immediately impressed with his resume. He made the effort to come all the way from Santa Clarita to my house which I appreciated. Just after one lesson, I could see a difference in myself. After just a few lessons, Vinny has taught me so much. I am now more confident in what I can do and in my safety. He has helped me to realize that with practice and skill, I can take on any challenge that I may come up against. At 16, it means a lot to know that I have taken certain pre-cautions to ensure my safety and well-being which causes me to have a peace of mind. I owe it all to Vinny and I highly recommend him as a trainer because every girl deserves to know that they have the power and right to learn and defend themselves.
The self defense lessons were great! I have been taking them for a few years and I have learned so much. Martin is a great teacher and very knowledgeable in his trade. I would recommend his classes to everyone.
Carlos cares training people to defend themselves - he always goes above and beyond in reviewing and adding in extra lessons as well. His brother Omar is also greatly is appreciated; being the guinea pig and taking the brunt of much practice from neophytes. I highly recommend this course, and plan on going through it again.
Joseph is an outstanding instructor. My kids love working with him, and he is very attentive to their needs. I could not recommend a better person! Thank you so much and I look forward to my kid's next lesson
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!
Minju is very knowledgeable and passionate about boxing. That's definitely what you want in a teacher/trainer. That's exactly what I got. Very happy with my experience.
Intended for beginners and intermediates, my lessons will show you the fundamentals of the martial art of muay thai. The art of the eight limbs consists of kicks, punches, elbows and knees that get that killer shape you always wanted. Whether you're looking to learn self-defense, experience an intense workout or just have fun while getting your fit on, my muay thai lessons may be exactly what you need.

I was an amateur and professional boxer with over 100 fights. I'm looking to start showing people how to box.
We've been taking karate at American Kenpo Karate in both group and private class for two years. As an educator who works with both kids and young adults, I appreciate their care and professionalism. I know my daughter is safe with her instructors. She has thrived under their study and has earned her belts through hard work and well executed katas. In addition Kenpo is the best form of self defense for karate. The classes teach discipline, excellent form and responsibility. I would look here before considering anywhere else. They are a step above the rest!
I have 10 years of experience with a shotokan karate black belt. Protect yourself from the increasing dangers and homicides being conducted in this era.
Mr Hall came into my studio to give a self defense demonstration to my students. The lesson was educational and very detailed. He did an excellent job explaining the concept of each applications. I walked away learning quite a bit in only 1 session.
