Our six-year-old daughter absolutely loves this place! They are very good at teaching karate along with life skills and discipline which they emphasize.

Review №2

The staff is wonderful. They teach not only how to protect and defend yourself. The staff also teaches when it’s ok to use Karate and how to avoid conflict by using our words 1st. They teach to think positively and are always encouraging. Words can not describe how much I appreciate everything they have done for my son. Thank you East Mesa Karate. And a special thank you to the Baker Brothers.

I signed up my son about 7 months ago and it has been a life changing experience for him. Karate is a great activity to instill self-confidence, discipline and respect for others, all traits that are so important for kids to learn these days. We cant be happier with everything about the school- the classes and instructors are top-notch. They also hold monthly events- Kids Night Out (more like Parents Night out) and occasional sleepovers which help build social skills for the kids. My son loves them all, the last one was Nerf themed and he had so much fun. We also just threw his birthday party at the school- they have parties for 10-20 kids, and take care of everything, all you need to worry about is the cake. The kids had so much fun. Even his friends outside of karate loved it! Thanks to the owners, instructors, students and fellow parents for the wonderful environment at East Mesa Karate. There arent many places like it!

My 4 yr old had his first trail class tonight. My son has tons of energy and has a hard time following directions but the teachers were very patient and understanding. We will be returning for another trial next week. And most likely will be enrolling him in future classes.

A functional impass in the system limits me to a mere 5 stars. So all 5 of them are of immense size, solid gold and jewel encrusted. Our family loves all of the instructors. They promote the best aspirations of the kids and the results have been seen in school and home in our case. 👏👏 YOU ROCKEAST MESA KARATE.

So far very nice experience.

Review №20

They are family owned and you can tell. The Bakers are AWESOME!!! They are great with kids and adults alike. They emphasize discipline and fairness. They teach great karate skills but also teach kids not to use them in the wrong manner, only in self-defense. They are definitely not training any bullies, quite the opposite. Their door is always open. Come check them out!!

It was good

Review №37

Let me elaborate on how awesome East Mesa Karate truly is. They never have less than 2 instructors present at any given time, in some cases Ive seen 4 instructors @ once. Those not directing the class walk around and provide assistance to struggling students. They seem to know everybodys names, impressive considering they have 300+ students. Instructors will even sit down beside parents or students and have casual conversation, getting to know you and your needs from the school. A casual, welcoming and sometimes funny atmosphere when you walk in, yet professional and knowledgeable when you have questions. Ive observed instructors (upon request) have a kind of private class off to the side or outside the school when that student needs more assistance after their class is over (i.e. black belt class has started but the student is a yellow belt). Despite having a casual atmosphere, instructors display excellent professionalism and are serious when trying to avoid injuries during certain takedowns. Even then they ask that we consult our current partners on how rough we can go. I had one partner who asked to go slow and gentle on account of prior back problems, and another partner who didnt mind how fast I went as long as I did the move correctly. A friendly and cooperative class makes for happy students 😁. But thats not all. Instructors are consistent in every aspect one finds important, friendly and respectful not only to students and parents but amongst themselves as well. They make what theyre teaching remarkably easy to understand, as with each instructor comes a different understanding to learn the same material. As a former student of Tae-Kwon-Do, much of the terminology is the same and what I dont know is easy to understand. To wrap up, I highly recommend any persons of any age to join East Mesa Karate if they are On a Quest to be the Best! East Mesa Rocks!
