What People are saying about us
Elite Leadership Martial Arts has a long history of success with people of our community. Here are some of their comments.
Excellent teaching style - very motivating and positive! Wonderful atmosphere.
This place is the best! My oldest daughter has loved learning here. I, as a parent, like that the instructors focus not only on martial art skills, but also on the character traits that we would like to see our children model.
I signed my son up for karate at Elite Leadership Martial Arts a couple of years ago to help him with building self confidence, and how to overcome challenges. He walked away from soccer when he was in SK, after being expected to play like the older kids, because he tall for his age. ELMA has helped him to rebuild confidence, and teach skills that he now also uses in baseball. He now breaks down challenges instead of getting angry.
Our kid has started Karate at Elite Leadership Martial Arts since 2019. Sensei are nice and professional, kids all seem to cooperate well. Except the practical techniques, we love the way that the Sensei teach kids how to develop good behaviour/habits/leadership toward real life! We find that our kid loves to obey the "rules" from the program which help a lot to develop his daily good habits.
More Success Stories
Our daughter has been attending classes at Elite Leadership Martial Arts (ELMA) for about 3 months now and we couldn't be happier. The flexible scheduling is a blessing for our two-home kiddo and the online portal is convenient and easy to use. Both Renshi Jeff and Sensei April are fantastic and the mixed-belt classes provide an opportunity for our white-belt to model those ahead of her. It has been an amazing experience thus far and we look forward to many more years with ELMA!
I joined Elite Leadership Martial Arts – along with my two daughters – approximately one year ago. As a parent, I have witnessed how the ELMA program has helped my children build confidence, discipline, respect & motivation that are reflected in everyday life. My girls feel a real sense of accomplishment, a sense of belonging, how to set goals, how to handle themselves in situations about bullying & stranger danger. Shihan Jeff Burroughs & Sensei April are dedicated, family oriented, positive role models that demonstrate true leadership & commitment in their teachings. For me, I have also benefited from the ELMA program physically, mentally & socially. Thank you for making such an impact & being a part of all our lives. - Tobi
I joined Elite Leadership Martial Arts a year and a half ago. Being nearly forty years old, I was concerned it could realistically be too late to begin a martial arts program. But the team at ELMA encouraged me that it’s never too late to make a positive life change. The program has been incredible. The physical and self-defence benefits of learning karate are amazing, and I am in better shape now than I have ever been. The program is also highly focused on improving one’s character. Renshi Jeff and Sensei April consistently inspire discipline, dedication, determination, and perseverance in their students, while always modelling the qualities of patience, encouragement, kindness, and respect. The team embraces the concept of healthy competition and being a good sport, while also reminding students that life isn’t all about being better than someone else, but rather being the best you that you can be. Renshi Jeff talks about the Japanese concept of “kaizen”, meaning “continuous improvement”, and its importance not only in learning karate, but in everything you do. I highly recommend this dojo!
