Best birthday party here at Evoke!!!! We celebrated our daughter’s 12th birthday at Evoke and everyone really enjoyed the party!Guest comment during the party: “Wow we have never attended a martial arts birthday before. This is super fun and our children are really enjoying the activities.”It... was a very well planned party with super fun activities and all of this arranged by Evoke! As parents we were really relaxed as everything was managed by Evoke staff.My daughter’s friends really enjoyed all the activities and everyone at the party was engaged throughout the 2 hours. Time management was excellent, everything was ready when we arrived.Best birthday party experience. Highly recommend!!My daughter also attends the Hapkido Kidz class at Evoke! When she first started, it was really challenging for her. But the teachers at Evoke were so encouraging and supportive that very soon she started getting comfortable in her classes. We are really happy seeing her progress and really appreciate the staff at Evoke! Thank you so much for your wonderful lessons and teaching these important life skills with so much determination!Highly recommend their classes!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

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

I recently had the opportunity to attend a kickboxing lesson at Evoke Martial Arts and I must say, it was an outstanding experience. The class was held on early May and took place in a clean and well-maintained training area.The highlight of the lesson was undoubtedly the coach. They were... incredibly patient and knowledgeable, taking the time to guide us through various kickboxing combos. Their teaching style was effective, as they explained each technique clearly and demonstrated it with precision. I particularly appreciated their willingness to provide individual attention and personalized feedback, ensuring that every participant understood and executed the techniques correctly.The class had a great atmosphere, with a diverse group of participants who were enthusiastic and motivated. The energy level was high, creating an encouraging and supportive environment. It was evident that the coach fostered a sense of camaraderie among the students, which made the lesson even more enjoyable.In terms of the workout, the kickboxing lesson provided an excellent physical challenge. The coach incorporated a variety of exercises to warm us up and stretch our muscles before delving into the techniques. The cardio component was intense, offering a fantastic opportunity to improve endurance and burn calories.I have been so impressed with my experience that I have already recommended this kickboxing lesson to many of my friends. If you're looking to learn kickboxing in a supportive and engaging environment, I highly recommend giving this class a try. The coach's expertise, combined with the well-maintained facilities and the positive atmosphere, make it an exceptional choice for beginners and experienced practitioners alike.In conclusion, my kickboxing lesson at Evoke Martial Arts exceeded my expectations. The patient and knowledgeable coach, combined with the energetic class atmosphere, created an environment that was both enjoyable and conducive to learning.

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

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.

Our son loves his classes at Evoke! He's enthusiastic and looks forward to them every week. Several of his friends have joined the classes as well. They're all 5-6 years old and we have nothing but good things to say about the classes, the instructors and the staff. Watching my son progress over... the past few months has been very satisfying.

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

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

My son has been attending classes for just over a month and really enjoys the program; he's asked a few times whether he can increase the number of weekly classes from 2 per week to more. I'm grateful for the combination of physical challenge, focus training, and the short meditation he gets at... the beginning of class. 5 stars.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

I started Hapkido ten years ago as a middle age adult, having never taken any martial art before. While athletic, I had little flexibility and the training that the senior belts were doing looked... impossible. Four years later, with hard work and encouragement, I was awarded my black belt.

I can’t say enough good things about Master Dayo, Miss Tess and the rest of the staff. I can honestly say that they, and the people I’ve trained with along the way, are like family.

Regardless of your age or athletic ability, I encourage you to give Hapkido a try. It is honestly one of the most rewarding things I have ever done.

My family has been part of the Evoke community for over 10 years. Not only have my children learned the many skills provided by the Hapkido curriculum, but the classes are led by a remarkable staff... who that incorporate important life lessons.
I can’t say enough about how much my two sons have gained from their many years of studying Hapkido at Evoke Martial Arts. It has helped with their balance, their fitness but more importantly their confidence and the ability to respect themselves and others. I highly recommend Evoke Martial Arts as a place for young and old to study Hapkido, Muay Thai, or kickboxing.

I started Kick boxing 6 months ago, then added Muay Thai. I feel challenged in the best way with every class, my upper body strength and flexibility have increased and so has my endurance. T.H.A. is... an awesome place to reach your fitness goals, guided by coaches who love what they do!read more

I've been at other martial arts schools over the years and THA is by far the best. Master Dayo, Ms. Tess and the other instructors are excellent and help you learn in a relaxed and fun environment. ... My wife, 7 year old son and I all are members and we'll eventually get our 3 year old to become a Lil' Dragon soon.

If you've ever thought of trying martial arts, you have to give The Toronto Hapkido Academy a try.- you'll love it!

Recovering your lost bitcoin or funds as the case might be, is not what you can do alone, you'd require the service of a trained specialist. A recovery specialist is a... person or a group of people who are well equipped to work around the crypto network.
