What People Say

Martha J.

Great atmosphere! Great music! Great with kids! Awesome motivator! Awesome person period!  He has all the attribute of a Master Sensei. I recommend highly.

Jamie P.

After watching the students of Sensei Ash Martial Arts and Fitness perform during the Tarzana Safari Walk Sidewalk Fair, I was just so impressed! His students of all ages and belt levels carried a great discipline and confidence that shined through. 

Sensei Ash offers a 2 week trial, but it did not take that long for me to see this is where my son needs to be. I just wish I signed him up sooner. My kid who is 9 likes to skateboard so I wouldn't say he's not active. However coming here is aiding him to become stronger, more disciplined, and more confident. The program Sensei Ash offers for kids is wonderful as he incorporates kickboxing fitness along with martial arts. 

Classes for kids are three days a week and the prices are great. There are adult classes as well. I definitely recommend Sensei Ash Martial Arts and Fitness!

Carole K.

I cannot speak highly enough about my experience at Sensei Ash's martial art. Sensei Ash is an amazing role model and a teacher. 

Am extremely pleased with the quality of his teaching. He is some kind of role model to all the kids who are learning self-discipline and respect for themselves and to others at his dojo.

Good job Sensei!

Sensei Ash was my children"s first Martial Arts teacher and I now understand why they loved and blossomed under his instruction. 

I have been training in the Fitness Kickboxing program for a year and half and love both the classes and the results. During that time, the structure, music and content of every class has varied however every class is definitely challenging with a sense of fun. He"s always introducing new "fun" ways to work different areas and manages to provide workouts that accommodate students of all ages and levels. Sensei Ash"s enthusiasm and energy level is contagious, he has an amazing ability to motivate his students who then push themselves to, and past, the limits they have previously set. He clearly loves what he is doing, and enjoys helping students reach their goals, whether its kids on their journey to black belt or adults wanting to maintain a high level of fitness. Although the classes are exhausting, I always leave feeling good about myself and my achievements and look forward to the next class.

We were looking for a training center where our children would not only learn martial arts but also gain a deeper sense of self-discipline, humility, kindness, and respect for others, and we found it here.  What distinguishes this studio is that Sensei Ash and his teachers truly understand the individual needs and abilities of each student and they work with them accordingly with tremendous patience and support.  We also appreciate Sensei Ash's comprehensive approach to teaching martial arts: a variety of styles are organically incorporated into the training curriculum to forge a complete martial artist.  

There is a brilliantly conceived fitness class for kids offered on the weekend that emphasizes foundational movement, balance, and stamina while also reinforcing the martial arts training they receive during their weekday classes.  We were so impressed with this class that it inspired my wife and I to train privately with Sensei Ash, similarly incorporating physical fitness with martial arts training.  The results so far have been nothing short of transformative.

This is a special place, and a warm sense of community fills the studio.  Parents and children are friendly and cheer everybody on.  Joining here was simply one of the best decisions we have made as a family.

My 9 year old daughter had been doing martial arts with Sensei Ash for 3 years and loves it! Sensei Ash has such a great energy with the kids which makes the classes so fun. Not only does my daughter have a great time in class, but she is challenged physically and mentally. I am grateful to have found a place that encourages health, strength, and confidence for my daughter.

I noticed one of the moms bodies really slimming down and toning up and had to ask what SHE was doing. She told me to try one of Sensei Ash's adult fitness classes with her, and I've been addicted ever since! I've never looked or felt so good! Such a fun energetic class that he makes work for men and women of ALL ages. Now my husband and 14 year old son take the classes too! I love that it's something that we can do as a family. I'm proud to have a healthy, fit family. Thank you so much Sensei Ash!!!

Sam V.

My daughters have been going to Sensei Ash Martial Art for almost 2 years now.  I can't say enough about what a positive experience this has been for both of them.  One day, when I'm injury free I'll join too!  Very family oriented.  Sensei Ash is always very friendly and makes it a point to know each student.  He quickly finds strengths and weaknesses, and instruct accordingly.  I can't say enough good things about this fitness.  I feel very fortunate to have found such an excellent place for my children to learn a martial art.  Also our family love parents nights out! :)) Thanks to Sensei Ash...

The qualities that are striking about Sensei Ash that make him an excellent instructor are: 

1. He is an great motivator. I took his Saturday morning kick-boxing and work-out class. As the sweat was dripping off me and my will power to continue with some exceptionally difficult exercise was flagging, he had a great way about his personality of motivating me to keep on going - usually using humor. For example, when he started counting down the last 10 seconds of an exercise, the class knew those seconds always magically turned into 30 seconds. That always elicited playful groans. His classes were both grueling, yet fun.

2. His upbeat personality. Mr. Ash is always cheerful and good humored both on and off the mat. His spirit shines through and infect his classes and his students. 

3. Overall, you can just sense that Sensei Ash loves what he does, has great pride in his skill, and is a consummate martial artist. For example, I once sparred him and it was like fighting a demon fast Octopus. His skill at teaching forms is unsurpassed. And he is a great teacher of both kids and adults, which is rare. Both of my kids have been taught by him, as well as I. We all respect him.

I used to HATE working out. The idea of it seemed absolutely awful to me. I would think that any one who said working out was a hobby of theirs was crazy. And I can now proudly say I am one of those wackos. Sensei Ash's Fitness Kickboxing class has changed my life. I look forward to working out everyday and I am in the best shape of my life. I owe it all to him and his great tactics. His class is fun, hard, challenging, and relaxing all at the same time. The family created within the class is a whole different reward on its own. Everyone supports each other. And it truly is a community of people who just want to live a better and more fit life. Join the family and try his two week trial. I promise you will not regret it.

Wow! I can"t believe that it has been about four or five years since I started learning Hapkido with you as my instructor. I have learned so much ever since then. You are the biggest reason why I am still doing karate & testing for my black belt. You made learning fun in a way that no one else that has ever taught me, has. If you hadn"t been my instructor, I most likely wouldn"t be a black belt candidate right now, and most likely would"ve quit a long time ago. I can not believe you are leaving Team Karate Centers and finally starting you own place. Time flies by so quickly. I wish you the best with your new studio and I hope it turns into a success. 
Sincerely ,
Parand. (or as you liked to call me Par-1)

Sensei Ash's classes are one of a kind. Best place for kids to balance their energy, learn self confident and for sure best fitness place ever!

We do mother and daughter training and my six years old love it .

Michelle Z.

f you want an amazing, one of a kind workout where you are getting toned sculpted muscles, strengthing your core, and improving your flexibility - this is the place to be. Sensei Ash is a fantastic teacher, plays great music in a fun atmosphere while you workout and drip your fat away!!! I've tried out a lot of studios and Sensei Ash's is one of a kind --combining CrossFit,martial arts, TRX, interval and strength training to give you a unique workout you can't duplicate anywhere else!

I highly  recommend him and his studio. You can't go wrong!!

Margaret K.

One of a kind training, one of a kind trainer! Sensei Ash truly cares about every single person that walks through his door. Whether you are an adult who wants to lose weight or simply get fit, or a child, who wants to learn self defense, Sensei Ash will commit to you and will motivate you 100%. Check his place out. You won't regret it!

Gloria D.

I cant say enough great things about Sensei Ash and his classes.  I've been attending  for almost a year and have noticed such a huge difference in my body.  His classes are incredibly fun and motivating.  Great music and everyone there is so supportive and friendly!   Well worth trying the free trial, no doubt you will be addicted!!!!


If you are a parent and you want your child to learn morals, values, discipline, and respect -BRING HIM OR HER TO SENSEI ASH!! I know there are so many Martial Arts Studios now and so many places to go or take your child to or to choose from-BUT quantity will never make up for QUALITY!!  Quality is what you need to look for and if you want quality than you will find it with Sensei Ash and his discipline style! He is definitely worth the money, time , and energy!!  I also posted a schedule of his classes if you want to see when he's teaching!

Try him out, ! I know for a fact you will not regret it!!

Krist D.

Sensei Ash is amazing. I have been taking his class 2 years. Not only have I lost 30 lbs but I made some great friends and really strengthened my body. I feel my balance and agility is also much better. I love the class which is saying a lot for me because I dont really love working out. I def recommend you try it!

Brandon F.

This place is the best! I consider myself a health fanatic and have tried it all...Gyms, P90X, running , biking, hiking etc.... but nothing compares to the full body workouts in the "fitness kickboxing classes" that Sensei Ash brings to the table. He'll build your strength, speed, stamina, determination, and overall well-being. And if that wasn't enough... he's also a fourth degree black belt.

Great for kids, teens, and adults. Classes for beginners to intermediate. Learn discipline, respect, empowerment, all while getting in great shape. No one better than Sensei Ash...FIT LIFE!

Tony P.

This is by FAR the greatest fitness class ever created, and it all starts with Sensei Ash. His energy, knowledge, and spirit will inspire you to get the best from yourself. Using a mixture of different principles, such as Kick Boxing, Karate, Cardio, and core training, class is always fresh n challenging and joining the incredible community of people that attend, you will have fun getting healthy.  It will take only one class for you to realize you've stepped into something special. Would recommend his Fitness Kickboxing program for anyone, regardless of what shape you think you're in.  I've been going to these classes for over 2 years, and nothing made me happier than when I cancelled my gym membership. It's great to see the rewards, not just in myself, but of everyone in the class. I guarantee if you try just one class, you'll end up writing a review like this within weeks. 

Danny C.

It does not get any better than Sensei Ash Martial Arts & Fitness.  Hands down, one of the best workouts in the valley.  Perfect combination of strength and cardio training to get you in the best shape of your life.  His personality in infectious and his workouts are addicting.  He is unbelievable with kids as well, my 9 year old and 5 year old just adore Sensei Ash and cannot wait for the days they get to train with him.

His enthusiasm and passion for what he does shows everyday. Sensei Ash truly cares about his students as people and would do whatever he could to help them achieve their goals.

If you haven't gone yet, you gotta check this place out!!  You won't be sorry that you did.....

5 STAR for Sensei Ash!

As a Marine for over 20 years- being deployed to war zones and as a Drill Instructor for Marines and in charge of platoons of over 100 Marines -fitness was a must for us! Physical Training every day hauling 70pounds on our backs etc. etc. Preparing for war, simulation situation, war zone situation and preparation for attacks and these are physically intense and constant every day! A Marine is always a Marine whether active or retired! 

My wife took (emphasize the word took) me by force to Sensei Ash place because she believed she found a perfect match for me, but I laughed at her! In my head no one or nothing can match up to the Marine style training! Before she had kids she was trained by Professional Fighters so this is her world -not mine! But she insisted (by force) to try out his class for only one night, so I agreed so I can stop her fussing ;)!  I met Sensei Ash.. walked onto the mat.. the music came on and the workout started and within 20 minutes I turned to my wife and told her "I LIKE THIS!" and 30 minutes later I told her "I'M SIGNING UP!" and I did that same night! I was very impressed with his style. I don't know if there's a name for his style but I loved it! I was dripping sweat from head to toe within 45 minutes! He is an amazing cool humble guy and very down to earth too! 

I walked into his place over 200 pounds and three months later my V.A physical weighed me at 182 and stated my cholesterol level is low and blood pressure is low too and gave me a good bill of health! Sensei Ash is the Real Deal!  He is a great motivator!

Richard W.

Without a doubt, this is the best workout class and experience that I have ever participated in. I am a triathlete and have run 2 marathons in the last year  all with Sensei Ash's help. I have been going to his classes for over 1 year now and without his guidance I would not have been able to achieve any of my athletic accomplishments. Each class is unique and different every time. His style of teaching, positive reinforcement and motivational skills is what makes me come back for more. The other people in the class are supportive as well and it's like a great group of friends getting together for a nice sweat and my kids love going to see him as well. Sensei Ash has enabled me to push myself to limits beyond what I could imagine for myself. No better place for me than Sensei Ash Martial Arts and Fitness!!

Megha J.

Sensei Ash is the greatest karate (hapkido) trainer I have ever seen. He pushes you hard but works with you to make sure you achieve the goals that need to be achieved. He is great with all the kids and pays detailed attention to everyone. 

I have trained with him for over a year and love his style. He knows exactly when to be soft and encouraging and when to be hard and stern. 

He also offers a couple of weeks free. Definitely worth trying- I am sure you will love his classes; Karate as well as fitness


Where do I begin? Believe it or not I love this place. If you want a great workout this is the place to come. The atmosphere is always positive. I mean I love this place so much that my whole family has enrolled. If you need that extra push come on down I promise you won't be disappointed.

Zaven K.

Great place to workout. Great music and great motivation by Sensei ash. My biggest mistake was stopping for 3 months and trying the gym. This is the way to go. Best workout of my life.
