About School Of Martial Arts West LA
Our classes combine intense total-body workouts with cutting edge self-defense. Our students learn a time-honored skill, and they have fun doing it. Getting in shape? That’s just a bonus.
What differentiates us
Most Dojos fall under one of two categories: fight clubs or day care. The School of Martial Arts is different. We offer offer a third choice: Real Martial Arts, taught well.
Many schools say they train the mind as well as the body. Actually finding mindfulness in practice is unfortunately very rare. Our students gain both mental and physical discipline. They become not only better fighters but better fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, employers and employees.
How we were trained
Sifu Ryan Scott has practiced martial arts since the age of 8 in Dojos across the US, in China and Japan. He has extensive experience with some of the worldâs highest-ranking martial artists in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Judo, Aikido, Tae Kwon Do, and Yuchia Kung Fu.
Sifu Scott is one of only 5 students (out of thousands) to ever reach the rank of black under Sifu Robert Brown, a martial arts master with 40 years of experience and black belts in 4 different styles.
As a lifetime student and instructor, Sifu Scott's passion for practice is surpassed only by his love for teaching the martial arts. He has seen the same transformation in the lives of his students as he has experienced in his own, and thrives on their continued success both on and off the mats.
Why we love what we do
At the School of Martial Arts, we strike a balance between tradition and a modern, scientific approach to self-defense. We practice as partners, not opponents. The whole dojo learns and sweats together. Gain a complete understanding of self-defense, fitness and the deeper aspects that practice of Real Martial Arts has to offer.
