About Our Academy
A WORD FROM SIGNING
I’m Sigung Darryl James owner and chief instructor, and I with my wife Cheryl, a practicing Child Psychotherapist and faculty member at San Diego State University and the proud owners of the James Martial Arts Academy. As a Kosho-Ryu and Kajukenbo style instructor with extensive experience training kids, there is nothing better than seeing them grow firsthand.
More importantly than the uniforms and self-defense skills, they learn as the personal skills they develop and carry for life. Because our discipline is so much more than just kicking and punching, and getting the next colorful belt, it’s about developing confidence, discipline, character, focus, and respect. With every class we teach, your kids are growing in mind, body, and character.
That’s because the Japanese style provides instant positive feedback. By learning to focus on the core moves, they develop discipline and respect. They can instantly see and feel a difference, making them destined to build confidence, self-awareness, and self-respect.
And of course, it’s a ton of FUN! That’s why I love teaching kids in this community, and why I know your kids are going to LOVE training. As a bonus of training with us, our students have appeared in four films.
Please have a look below to find out exactly how your kids can benefit from the fun classes we also have training videos.
I’m looking forward to meeting you at our San Diego academy.
