"Emeryville Martial Arts professes more than physical stamina, technique, and style. It truly demonstrates the mind and body experience. In the last 2 years, at least 5 teens who have obtained a rank of upper brown belt to black belts, have excelled academically: Attending Harvard and most recently newly admitted to MIT. I feel as an adult, who started taking my children here 4 years ago, and now an active participant, this dojo presents a fantastic environment for growth. Mental stamina, physical fitness, and self-control are the wonderful tenets of this dojo. From the very young to the more seasoned (myself 50's), a strong comradery of individuals interact in a positive way. So, for those of you that are into more than just hitting a bag, this place engages many more of the body's senses." Wayne D, Oakland
"My kids have gone to summer camp and taken regular classes...we have always felt like family there. I liked it from the very beginning because (1) the sensei/teachers never talk down to the students, even the youngest ones; and (2) the culture of the dojo is to have kids who are further along teach and lead those students who are at lower levels. This really encourages the kids to be responsible, and true to the practice.The summer camp is great since they spend intense time on the martial arts, which gets the movements more ''ingrained’'. They also swim often, and do really fun stuff like go to A's games. I've always felt like the owners and teachers really cared about and took care of my kids there." Ruth
"Our 9th grade class visited Emeryville Martial Arts last Friday for a 3 hour self-defense/anti-bullying workshop. It was a fantastic experience for everyone! The instructor was super engaging and very attentive. She got everyone (including the teachers) up and moving. The students came back energized and couldn't stop talking about all the things they'd learned. One student said, "It was the best workshop ever!" Thank you Sensei Terri!"
"Terri was incredibly helpful. She gave me two private lessons preparing me for self defense (body lang, verbal and physical skills) for me to use when traveling the world alone. I highly recommend using her as a resource. She tailored my lessons to my needs, was personable, and I learned a ton and gained confidence! Thanks Terri!" Emma L.
