What Students Are Saying...
East Coast Academy of Martial Arts rescued me from the daily grind of life!
ECA has been a welcome distraction from the stresses and pressure that come with
career, family, etc...I came to ECA with zero martial arts experience. Michele
Thompson has used the right blend of instruction, support and no nonsense direction
to make the experience exciting, interesting, and rewarding. I'm glad to be a part
of ECA and look forward to the challenges.
Exercise is good for you. It's common knowledge, but the thought of going to the
gym and running in place or using any of those machines for even 15 minutes
has always felt like torture to me. I always found it sooooooo boring. So when
SiFu opened across the street from where I was living, it seemed like a great
opportunity to try something physically and mentally demanding. And let me tell
you, it was. And better yet, I enjoyed every second of it. In the first four months
I lost 20 pounds. Without dieting. Everyone at East Coast Martial Arts Academy
has become like family and when the workouts are especially intense you can
always count on someone to cheer you through it. Because of ECAMA I've lost
2 pant sizes and am in better shape than I have been since I was a teenager.
Come for the martial arts, stay for the fun! The learning is serious, but the
atmosphere is fun and relaxed. The skills you acquire and the conditioning are tremendous!
I can’t imagine going anywhere else for martial arts lessons! I appreciate being
in a class where every student is striving to reach their own personal best, and
every person – no matter their skill level – is very encouraging of those around
them. As a beginner (and a woman) I thought I might feel intimidated, but I was
greeted with a warm welcome from my very first class!
