Hi, I am 11 years old. I started martial arts when I was 4 years old. I love coming to class, training with my friends, meeting new people, and being on the AAU Competition Team. Oh yeah, did I say I love training with my friends :-)? I have met so many awesome people while taking martial arts. I don't know what I would do without it.
My son began training at ECMA about two years ago. Master Tommy took care in evaluating and placing him at the appropriate level engendering a seamless transition. The experienced instructors are engaging and dedicated to helping each child develop and grow. In addition, Master Tommy is readily available and frequently steps in to work with a group or offer a student one-on-one instruction on a challenging skill. During this unpredictable and challenging time of the Coronovirus, knowing that my son has Taekwondo still available to him, has been a gift. Being able to virtually attend his weekly classes allows him to continue working on his body and mind which is especially important during these trying times. Master Tommy focuses on developing the 'whole' student. Through his Life Lessons Blog, he is instilling useful knowledge and principles in his students. Master Tommy, Thank you for all your hard work!
Thank you all so much for all of the hard work and time you have been spending on keeping our TKD students training during this challenging time. The lessons and workouts have been exceptional, almost like being in regular class. The support and training you are giving the students to be able to continue training is phenomenal. You can feel the passion and care from all the instructors as they want to see our kids succeed in their training. We all look forward to the online classes and know that they are organized and well put together. Also, thanks for the great communication outreach during this time with the zoom meetings and emails. The updates always let us know what is happening at ECMA. We also truly appreciate the "extra" classes you are providing for extra training like the Black Belt candidate classes on Saturdays. The ECMA Crew is amazing and we hope you all continue to be safe. Thank you so much for all that you do!
My son has been taking classes here for almost 6 months and he loves it. He's learning great skills and having a fun time while he does. The instructors are great with the kids and have a ton of patience. We highly recommend East Coast Martial Arts!
Been coming here for over 7 years; started bringing our daughter when she was 3 due to being bullied in daycare. After about 3 weeks with Master Erik, the bullying stopped! Since then, she's loved the sport, loves the school & instructors. She looked like she was having so much fun, me and my wife joined her 3 years ago and now we all are members having a blast in class moving up the ranks and compete together on ECMA's AAU TKD Competition Team. Winning gold medals together at tournaments and competing in The AAU National Championships last year and seeing our little Warrior Princess get her Black Belt was like nothing we've ever experienced. We love our ECMA family...ECMA ROCKS!
Great learning environment, and great people. Whether you want to learn Taekwondo or Jiu Jitsu, the staff is very knowledgeable and well trained. I highly recommend this business.
The facilities in Annapolis are great, including regularly cleaned bathrooms, the two training floors are divided into three areas that allow us to have three different classes going on at the same time. In addition, there is a great seating area for spectators to watch.
If you are looking for a school to start or continue training in martial arts, come check out ECMA! You will not be disappointed!
I have two boys who have been going to ECMA-Edgewater since December. It is the ONLY sport they have ever asked to do and they LOVE it. They ask pretty much every day when the next "Karate Day" is and they are very motivated to do well. The teachers are firm but kind and work well with young kids.
Couldn't ask for a more enthusiastic and motivational instructor. You'll always get a great workout in a great space without am inferiority complex. Everyone is pushed at their own level to achieve their goals. Love the affordability and always different workouts.
As one of the top schools in the country (and maybe THE best), they don't just hand out black belts. Students really have to work very, very hard for them. There are many rungs on the ladder toward black belt, but the instructors are so positive and motivating and encouraging every step of the way. For kids they strive to make the classes fun. For adult students, they are particularly good at acknowledging your limitations, working with you on on them, and helping you learn how to get around and even overcome them. In our late 40s, my husband and I joined a few months after our young daughter started--it was a great way to get our exercise together as a family. Although our daughter eventually decided to stop, my husband continued and earned his black belt after 5 years. I took a year off training as an advanced belt (red senior) for a health issue but then came back motivated to review all the skills and recondition my body for another 18 months to finally earn my own black belt. Such a great feeling of accomplishment, especially as now I'm 53!
