Evolution Martial Arts

I have been a student of Master Barrios for a few months now and im learning a lot. I just had my yellow belt test and hoping i got my belt. You will feel very comfortable around Master Barrios and you will have fun in his class. He is a great martial artist and i am proud to be his student.



Awesome place to train!

I've been training at EMAC for the past two months, give or take. I really enjoy the workouts and instruction that are given at the school.The instructor provides a straight foward, no non-sense training curriculum and in my opinion is operating one of the best schools around.

The instructor is very down to earth and is an all around awesome person. He's very passionate about teaching/sharing his art and it shows in his classes.

Along with the awesome instructor and workouts, the school is in a GREAT location. Around the school are a bunch of shops and restaurants(and for the hardcore there is also a 24 hour gym... lol).

I would recomend this school to anyone interested in taking advantage of some of the very best training in Bay Area.




Intense but fun!

Trained with James for a few years. Great guy, even greater martial artist. His passion for Taekwondo and his attention to detail makes him a very effective teacher. People would do well to learn martial arts under him.



Solid School

I've been one of Master Barrios' students for a couple years not. The school is solid for all around taekwondo training and workouts. Bottom line, he loves to teach and does it well. I'm impressed with his attitude and love for the sport.



You will not be disappointed

Mr. Barrios is one of the finest people I know, let alone one of the best Taekwondo instructors I have ever had. While he was still a student at Rutgers University, he was holding down a full-time job, all the while tirelessly attending our thrice-weekly Taekwondo practices and all our tests, competitions, and tournaments. His coaching really turned around all of our members' performances, and I couldn't have efficiently run the Rutgers Taekwondo club without him. He has been one of the biggest influences in my life, mentoring me and guiding me not only in the sport of Taekwondo but strengthening me in spirit as well. My tremendous improvement is due to his teaching and dedication all those years. Anyone who has him as a teacher should consider him/herself extremely fortunate. It is rare to find such honesty and integrity in this world of "black belt factories." This school is truly not your generic Taekwondo school. Whether you want to go far with competitions or just want to get excellent instruction, then this is the place to choose.



A Revolution to Martial Arts

Master Barrios is not only witty and athletic but he is compassionate and hardworking. I've done one on one workouts and practices with him and I have to admit, I have learned a great from him and will take it with me my entire life.
