Our 6 year old started at the beginning of the year, so he's been doing it now for two and a half months. He loves it, and I honestly can't say enough good things about this place!

The staff is superb. They have just the right mix of kindness, firmness, and discipline. I was really impressed that even as the "new guy," my son was not given a free pass. From day one he was expected to bow onto and off of the mat, and if he forgot he was kindly but firmly led back to the edge so that he could do it correctly...

Wow!!! what a great place. My son loves coming here. My son is very shy and this has helped him tremendously with his confidence. He loves the games and learning all the techniques of BJJ. Cody is great with the kids. Highly recommended.

My son has been training at El Cerrito Martial Arts since the beginning of this school year. We had been looking for both a martial arts program and a new after school program. On the recommendation of a friend, we decided to look into the program at E.C.M.A.

After talking with Cody, I felt comfortable with giving their after school martial arts program a try. This has been a great decision. My son really enjoys it there and has shown tremendous growth in a short period of time. The daily instruction, play, snack, and study times have been of great comfort as a parent. They pick the program's children up from their respective local schools and provide a safe child care option for working parents until 6pm M-F.

This place is great- I immediately felt welcome and like family. Sensei Cody is a patient and knowledgeable teacher and while I was only able to attend for 6 weeks, I feel better prepared to defend myself or my son (God forbid). Life is a little too crazy at the moment which is why I'm taking a break from any extra-curriculars. I would love to come back once life settles down! Please check this dojo out soon :)

4 Tips on Building Your Child's Confidence

Are you worried about what to do

with your kids in the afternoon and early evening?

You wonder how your kids are spending their free time while you’re finishing up your work day.

You want your child to make new friends and build healthy relationships.

Your child struggles with discipline and respect, and you want them to learn these core values.

Being a parent is never easy!

Which is why we have started our After School program…

One of the biggest challenges of parenting is finding wholesome and fun activities for your kids to do after school. It’s especially important if you work and you know your kids will be unsupervised for several hours a day. You want to know where your kids and what they’re doing – and you want them to be learning something and not just playing video games.

That’s where our after-school program comes in. Kids learn about martial arts, including the core tenets of respect, discipline, and perseverance, in a fun and social setting.

your child will grow every day!

Learning martial arts helps kids in many ways. It teaches them to respect themselves and others, and to persist when they have a goal in mind. It emphasizes the mind-body connection and helps them to discipline themselves without being reminded.

Workout Instead of Sitting on the Couch

One of the most challenging things about being a parent these days is finding a way to tear your kids away from computers and video games and get them moving.

Our after-school program gives kids a physical outlet after a long day at school – and teaches them the value of fitness in a fun setting.

A Positive Place to Spend After-School Learning Martial Arts

Our transported after school program is an excellent after school alternative.

We provide professional & free transportation from your child's school to our facility.

Make New Friends & Have Fun

Sometimes, kids struggle to make new friends. It can be hard to find others with common interests or to have the time to socialize at school.

Our after-school program is a social setting, a place where kids can share experiences while learning something new. Many of the kids who attend our programs end up being close friends.

Learn Respect, Discipline, and Persistence

Some after-school programs simply offer parents a place to send their kids without any other benefits. Ours is different.

Kids who study martial arts learn respect for themselves and others, discipline in the pursuit of goals, and the rewards of hard work – lessons that carry over to home, school, and beyond.

Our 6 year old started at the beginning of the year, so he's been doing it now for two and a half months. He loves it, and I honestly can't say enough good things about this place!

I've been taking Jiu Jitsu for almost a year now, and I feel so much healthier. My 2 daughters have been going for 3 and 2 years respectively and they're still at it and having fun learning.
