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.

I cannot say enough good things about this amazing studio, and its incredible owners, Ted and Tanya! Both my 11 year old daughter and my 8 year old son take Kempo classes here, and they absolutely love it! Neither of my kids had any martial arts experience when they started, and they have learned so much in such a short amount of time. Sensei Ted has such a positive energy that shines through when he is teaching the kids! He makes the classes fun and engaging while teaching the kids skills, self discipline and positive attitude. It is a great, family-friendly studio!

Dan and Russ make it fun to work out. What can often be a chore is something I look forward to throughout the week. Mixing in martial arts, boxing, and circuit training, the time I spend there flies by, and no two workouts are the same. The best part of it all, is that they really LISTEN to you. They cater to how your feeling while pushing you (gently) to be your best. No yelling "one more set", or "push through the pain". They pay attention to what your body is doing, often asking how you're feeling, and they don't do anything to put your health or body in jeopardy. As someone who is middle aged and doesn't heal as fast as he used to, this is vital to me. Knowing I'm in a safe environment with people looking out for me while I'm there, and for the long term is very reassuring. Combine this with nutrition and meal guidance, and you have a trainer who really cares about his clients.

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!

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.

Sifu Walden is a skillful martial artist and a great instructor. He is masterful in the use of weapons with superior trapping skills. His teaching methods will bring the necessary attributes that will make you in to a competent fighter, capable of defending yourself. My favorite arts to practice are Panantukan and Pananjakmam (Filipino dirty boxing & kicking arts), Silat and Combat Sambo. My best experience at the Kamiya kan Academy was the day when I started Flowing from weapons to empty hand, from long range to trapping range to ground fighting, from art to art. Effortlessly like Bruce Lee said feeling not thinking ; becoming like water. I am sure you will enjoy every class the same way I do.

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.
