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!
