Why Train at AK Martial Arts & Fitness? Read just a few of our testimonials!
My family loves AK Martial Arts and Fitness! I have a 3 year old daughter and a 5 year old son that take karate classes and they love it! The instructors are great with the kids and I love how much my kids adore and respect the instructors. I also take karate classes at AK and love the exercise I get along with learning self defense and many other skills. I think it is wonderful how much they are involved in the community and how much support they give to the local schools.

What a refreshing surprise it was to discover AK Martial Arts and Fitness. Your do jang really does adhere to a higher standard than most; teaching with integrity and exposing us to the great art of Tang Soo Do. One of the reasons we chose your do jang, in the first place, was because of your unique method of testing and sparring. Your testing protocol sets itself apart from that of other martial arts do jangs. At AK Martial Arts and Fitness, testing is performed only upon honest evaluation of abilities and performance. It is truly skill-based and not about anything else (such as money or promotion just for the sake of belt collecting). Your do jang is genuine and true to your art. Additionally, sparring is performed in such a way that is mindful of personal ability and respectful of safety. You eliminate the element of injury, and yet manage to maximize the development of the skill. After being a part of your incredible do jang for nearly five years now, we just want to say Thank You and please keep doing exactly what you’re doing. AK Martial Arts and Fitness…you’re the best!

If you are looking for a different kind of workout, self-defense skills, a positive environment for your children to learn about self-discipline and self-control while picking up valuable lessons regarding physical fitness – then i highly recommend trying out AK Martial Arts and Fitness….Now we all have an activity we can talk about together, something we can do together and something healthy to do at least a couple of times per week. I’m stronger, have better posture and am generally more relaxed.

UNBELIEVABLE…BRILLIANT! This is without a doubt the best Martial Arts Gym in the country. Their RealFit4Life location is big, roomy, clean and inviting. The second you walk in, you’ll feel like family. They teach more than martial arts and fitness, they encourage self confidence and disciplines. Whether your 4, 14, 40 or older, male or female, this is definitely the place to check out. My son started there when he was 3 years old and now he’s 8 and has achieved his Green Belt. He has learned self control, self respect, respect for others and so much more. Every instructor is wonderful..they’re a team, and every member is part of that team too. I can’t say enough. AK Martial Arts & Fitness is the number one choice.

This is a great, positive place for kids to be each week. My boys leave feeling regenerated every time. They have formed friendships and have developed skills in physical coordination, mental focus, memory, and respect for others and the Gym. I definitely recommend meeting the staff and trying out the karate program.

THIS IS SUCH AN AMAZING PLACE.The facility is extremely large and clean. The families that go here are wonderful and they are so positive and encouraging. I really have so much fun being here and socializing with everybody. The instructors are incredibly kind and patient people. They go the extra miles to make sure that all the students and the families are comfortable. The truly dedicate their whole life to this and it such a wonderful thing to see how generous and giving they are. They really take the time to listen to their students and make sure the completely understand what is going on. The most incredible thing about this place is that they don’t just offer martial arts, but sports agility training as well. This is the place to be because it teaches self-discipline and self-control as well as respect. It’s very hard now these days to find people who truly respect one another and this place is just awesome. I would recommend this place to anybody of all ages because it is just a fun atmosphere and you really learn a lot of things that you can take with you and apply it to everyday living.

When I am asked “why do you take Tang Soo Do?” my quick answer is always that it compliments my running and is a great workout. I leave my session sweaty, sore and excited to go back for more. Another explanation would be that A.K. Martial Arts & Fitness is a complete package. They have great community involvement and fun family events. On a personal level, when I leave the Center my brain has been challenged learning new Korean words. My body has been challenged by trying to perform better. My spirit has been lifted by the genuine care, compassion and respect from the instructors. I am grateful to have A.K. Martial Arts & Fitness as a part of my journey.

Sa Bom Nim Gilvey and Sa Bom Nim Estes do not simply teach the requirements of Tang Soo Do, they live them. These instructors show, by example, how to live these time honored principles every day — providing excellent role models for kids and adults alike….I’ve read other great testimonials for AK Martial Arts & Fitness and concur. Without a doubt, this is the best Do Jang in the country.
Gerry & Donna G. San Marcos, CA
AK Martial Arts and Fitness cares about their members. Working out with the head instructors is such a positive experience, an experience that has forever changed the lives of myself and my son. We look forward to spending time at the Center with our instructors and friends.
Joe H., Vista, CA Parent and Student
AK Martial Arts has been a great experience for our grandson. Instructors stress the importance of self control and listening, while at the same time work on motor skills. They are patient and understand the needs of each individual child. We highly recommend them!
Teddy L., San Marcos CA, Parent
Having a strong background in martial arts, I had certain expectations and reservations when starting a new style, let alone a new school. Coming back to martial arts after a four year break wasn’t easy, but has been a very positive experience. Over the past year I have seen this Center grow and watched how the owners/instructors at AK Martial Arts & Fitness treat their members. I have been very impressed with the way this Center has been operated from day one and highly recommend to anyone that is interested in martial arts to visit the facility, meet the owners and watch a class.
Ryan M., Oceanside, CA, Student
The discipline of martial arts has truly impacted my son in a powerful way! Working with instructors that are both compassionate and regimented has helped him strike a balance both physically and socially. There are so many frustrations that adolescents confront today. Tang Soo Do (at AK Martial Arts & Fitness) has been a means of finding a peace and strength that has really made a positive difference in Jake’s life! As a mother, I would strongly recommend it for our sons and daughters!
