Hi praise for the wonderful team at Evoke. My 7 year old daughter loves the Little Dragon program and is exited to go to every single class. It's incredible to see the added boost in her confidence and focus in such a short period of time. Special events, such as the parent's night out, was also... a fun and exciting time for the kids and certainly appreciated by the parents.read more
I know the place for about nine years. Somehow I missed to leave a review earlier! My kids going there learned patience, respect, social skills in addition to their martial art techniques. They gained self confidence and experienced deep friendships. Our lives were much easier when it came to... teenage emotions!read more
This is by far one of the best kids parties we’ve ever hosted. We have celebrated both of our kids party here. It is an amazing experience for the kids. They are kept active with none stop games and make sure the birthday child is the center of the party! Can’t recommend enough.
I can’t say enough good things about the program and instructors at Evoke. There are other kids martial arts program offered across the city and closer to home, but what Evoke offers here is something I haven’t seen in other programs. They are compassionate and kind in their teachings but yet... expect individuals to focus and give their all. Evoke has built a safe environment for mix martial artists to learn and grow and to build not only their character but their phycological and physical strength. I can’t recommend Evoke enough. Both my girls have been attending since 2019. Thank you Master Dao and to the entire Evoke team & family.read more

We love this program! All the staff is super-friendly and knowledgeable. Besides burning a lot of energy, our son is quickly improving his self-esteem and self-regulation. The keywords and actions they work on, like patience and discipline, are very helpful. Thank you Evoke Team!
I've been training at Evoke Martial Arts for a month and am so grateful for the experience! The team's genuine care and welcoming attitude make learning martial arts less intimidating and more enjoyable. I highly recommend it to anyone seeking to improve their physical and mental well-being.
I recently had the pleasure of participating in the kickboxing lessons, and I must say it was an absolutely exhilarating experience! From start to finish, every aspect of the session exceeded my expectations, leaving me feeling both physically and mentally empowered. Here's why I would... wholeheartedly give it a 5.0 rating:1. Expert Instruction: The kickboxing lesson was led by 2 highly skilled and knowledgeable instructors who demonstrated exceptional expertise in the art of kickboxing. Their ability to break down complex techniques into digestible steps made it easy for beginners like me to grasp the fundamentals quickly. Their constant guidance and encouragement throughout the session helped me improve my technique and push my limits.read more
My son attended the Hapkido classes for a short time here. Unfortunately, we are moving very soon and he is not able to attend anymore. In these few weeks, he has learned so much that he is determined to continue with martial arts and Hapkido. He loved being in Evoke Martial Arts School with his... new friends and instructors. Besides physical strength, he also started learning discipline. As parents, we liked being able to attend and watch the classes, feeling much like being a part of the family. Thanks for everything one more time.read more
I cannot imagine my son’s childhood without his classes at Evoke. The best thing we could have done for him as parents is register him for the martial arts programme at this amazing place. He goes twice a week and has made incredible friendships, while learning the values of discipline, teamwork,... commitment, focus and hard work. We see the benefits with every single class. Even the summer camp programme is exemplary. Truly this place is one of the highlights of living in the area. Well done Evoke for caring about your Little Dragons so much.read more
Have been going here for the Muay Thai classes. The team is absolutely amazing!!! Very supportive, provide clear instructions and help for the classes, friendly and kind, and know you by name which I believe shows how much they care. The place itself is very clean, bright, and overall suitable for... the classes. I do a biweekly membership and it's definitely worth it if you can go consistently, otherwise they offer class packages too. I really enjoy going here and would recommend anyone considering a place to join here!read more

After attending the first of 2 kickboxing trial classes at Evoke, I felt so good that I decided to sign up right away! I am not a person who is motivated at a regular gym without instruction. Here, the academy and the instructors have such good, positive energy. They understand your endurance... levels and tell you to put in as much effort as you can while also making sure to gently encourage you to test and push your limit each time. I saw results in just 3 classes in being able to hold my plank longer than my first class. Love that every class focuses on improving kickboxing technique and has different combos and burnouts. In my 5 weeks here my endurance, fitness levels and breathing has improved. Also happy that my sciatica that used to affect me often while walking, had completely gone away in less than 2 weeks.I should mention that they take the time to personally check in via text to see if you’re ok when you miss a class. The camaraderie is instant here amongst members and staff. 🙂 Thanks, team, for being so wonderful!read more
