More About Coach James

Certified Black Belt,Full time Martial Arts Instructor since 2006. Graduate of 2­ year Instructor Certification Program. Participate in 2‐3 Martial Arts training sessions every week. I am a graduate of Bryan University in Los Angeles and hold an Associates degree in Advance Health and Fitness. I have taught 100+ students per week, and 10 to 12 one­ hour group classes per week. I have taught through the after school program since 2007.

Whether you are a beginner or experienced martial artist, I have a program to fit your needs. Men, women and children of all ages participate in my Private and Group Training Programs. The martial arts is a workout like none other and is always interesting and fun to learn. With me you are not just another student or client. You will realize your full potential, because you are special to me.

I enjoy working with students of all ages. All students can train at their own pace and at their own abilities.

The hardest part is staying consistent. Whether you want to improve your fitness, learn how to defend yourself, or just have fun, my goal is to help you stay on track and achieve your goals. A discipline, sport, and a way of life, the Martial Arts offers each individual many unique benefits. You may be a professional looking for that added mental edge in business, or someone who just wants to feel stronger and more energetic. Individuals who exercise have lower blood pressure, increased muscular strength, better flexibility and less body fat than those who do not exercise. Clients can also cope with high levels of stress and have a more confident self- image

Why not invest in yourself and or your child and prepare for the time you may have to defend yourself? I will help you gain the confidence you need to take control of any situation. Not only will you learn the physical principles of self defense, but you will also develop the mental awareness you need to recognize and avoid problem situations.

Now is the time to take care of the most cherished things in life and achieve the goals important to you.

Each session begins with a Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire, making sure all my clients are able to participate in physical activity. After a brief discussion regarding my clients goals and expectations we then go through a fitness assessment, this is used a baseline to map out what muscles maybe overactive and underactive. Each training program is customized to each individual clients fitness goals.

I follow the Optimum Performance Training Model or OPT model which systematically progresses a client through their fitness goals. In conjunction with the OPT model I also build a proper foundation for training with the use of body weight, suspension, kettlebells, steel club and steel mace. With this training modalities each client will be able to experience how even the lightest of weight can feel heavy. Slow is smooth and smooth is... Beautiful!

Client Reviews

Coach James is doing a great job with my son. His technique is fun and effective

Great coach. I enjoy working with him.

James is very dedicated, patient, and a very knowledgeable instructor.

James is an awesome trainer. He is very encouraging, truly cares about helping you reach your goals, and knows exactly how hard to push you in order to reach them.

Skill. Knowledge. Clarity. Patience. Discipline. Humor. These are the qualities that best describe Sensei James. Having trained in the martial art of Kempo under Sensei James for a year and a half (and, my kids having trained under him for twice that long), I can with certainty attest to the fact that he is a highly effective teacher, an expert practitioner, and a man of highest integrity, honesty and good-will. That he knows his subject matter thoroughly is without question. His ability to pass on his skill and knowledge in all its aspects – physically, intellectually and symbolically – with clarity and simplicity is remarkable. He approaches each of his students as individuals, recognizing the inherent strengths and limitations of each student and adjusting his physical demands and expectations accordingly, while nevertheless pushing each student to his or her capacity. (I speak from firsthand experience, having started my training with Sensei James well into my 50s, while my kids’ training started as pre-teens.) He also brings an ancillary knowledge of anatomy, musculature and nutrition to his training, contributing to the overall well-being of his students. Whether in group classes or in private instruction, his expectations are high and his patience unending, all delivered with a sense of humor that makes training not only highly satisfying but also a pure joy. As a trainer, an instructor and a practitioner, Sensei James is simply the best! - Brad G
