I'm doing the 16 week challenge also. I've been working hard, trying to eat better, and have lost weight, but better than that, I'm getting back in shape finally!! Everything was VERY difficult, at first.It's been about 5 weeks now, and i no longer wheeze and have found I can do more when I'm out and about. We are gaining strength, flexibility, coordination (gaining, not there yet!) and I'm having fun kickboxing! So glad I bit the bullet and signed up! Thanks for offering this to those of us who really needed it!
Amazing way to stay fit and learn Self confidence. Awesome community.
I was impressed. My son always has a blast and it's good for him. Worth checking out
How much does it cost per month because my mom wants to put me in karate
This place is 2 nd family to me. Its not bout kicking butt. The instructors teach physical, mental, and emotional. Great people to get a great work out with.
I have had an excellent experience with this studio--not just for my kids--but I also enjoyed attending Eldred's when I was their age. My two kids were 5 and 10 when they started and stayed enrolled for almost 3 years. The only reason we are not currently attending is due to location. Our family recently relocated but if we find ourselves back in the Escondido area we will re-enroll. From the stand point of a working mom of 3, a HUGE pro was the schedule! The class times made it a breeze to get them to class. They have classes that accommodate immediately after school up through the early evening (very practical for working families). Also, there are classes available on Saturday mornings which were fun to sit and watch with the other parents. The Tae Kwon Do studio is also very festive! There are always fun offsite picnics in the works, Kona Ice trucks, egg hunts, haunted houses, Santa and even SNOW (yes. Snow. In. Escondido.) :) Lastly, the staff is great! I like how they teach the students to address adults with respect! Most of the instructors have been with the studio since they were white belts which is kind of neat--as they can teach the kids, while understanding first hand the experience the students are having in the program. All in all this is not only a great place to learn martial arts, but it is also a great place if you are considering a productive and fulfilling extra curricular for your kids (or yourself)!
My daughter loves her class
Awesome school! Teaches so much more than martial arts, such as self discipline, how to deal with peer pressure, respect for others, the value of education, accomplishment and community service! Worth every penny!
Great Martial Arts school, excellent instructors, they have four floors to offer plenty of space for your training, lots of classes Mon - Sat! Students will get out of it what they put into it, the Instructors support you and push you to be your best!
I personally went to this school when I was younger, and I agree with Jenny, I felt belittled. When I went for tests I was always nervous because I knew I would have a hard time moving on if I didn't do it right. I eventually got to a state where I went home frustrated and sad and I ended up quitting. This was hard for me because I am an athlete who doesn't give up on things like this, but it was taking up time where I could be doing something more with other sports rather than feel bad! The instructors are amazing and I loved them, but whenever Randy was there I was nervous. If you want your child to learn this way that is perfectly fine! It is a great school for martial arts. I learned a lot and loved the instructors! I actually followed one of them to a different studio because he was my favorite and was going to be running this studio, and it was much better. But I personally did not enjoy the teaching style at Eldred's. Sorry if this came off rude but I think people should know what they're getting in to. Everyone has different teaching styles, this one just didn't work for me! Try it if you would like! It is amazing if you can get past the instruction type :) (4 stars because I learned so much!! I loved it otherwise, I'm just not good with criticism)
Great community, I have known Mr Eldred since I was in High School and used to teach near the Grape Day park.
I like it because leslie it's doing well since she started eldred's school of martial arts and she Lerner the discipline because before I had a problem with her .
Studying martial arts at Eldred’s School of Martial Arts has been one of the most influential teachings in my life I grew in confidence, strength and heart. I went way beyond my perceived limitations – mind, body and spirit. I absolutely loved my martial arts training and can’t say enough about this studio and Master Randy Eldred. I felt supported, empowered and ultimately cared for. The passion that Master Eldred and Sheila Eldred have for their students and the true ‘art’ of martial arts is felt the moment you walk into this studio. If you are ready to become a skilled martial artist, breakthrough your fears, grow as a person, get stronger, meet some amazing people and have a lot of fun in the process then Eldred’s School of Martial Arts is your place to train.

The instructors really do care about their student's success! My daughter loves her instructor, Mr. Vargas. I recommend this place!
Best martial arts school in north county.
Marvelous Taekwondo studio! Son has gone for a year now and it offers sooo much more then the other studios that can sometimes be cheesy. My son went from shy and scared to confident and determined. They not only learn taekwondo, but bigger life lessons such as self control, discipline, respect, honor, determination and perseverance. A couple picnics during the summer, holiday activities and special promotional activities outside of normal practices make it all the more fun.
The school has done so much for my son! He has chance so much I will always be grateful
this place is like my second home.. a place where I've learned more about myself than I ever imagined. I'm a loyal student forever.
Long stem roses for Mothers Day?!!! Thank you all- for this and being the BEST decision we ever made for Matthew! He loves sports and his instructors, but more importantly HIMSELF! Love your studio!
