I have been a student of Master Barrios for a few months now and im learning a lot. I just had my yellow belt test and hoping i got my belt. You will feel very comfortable around Master Barrios and you will have fun in his class. He is a great martial artist and i am proud to be his student.

I've been training at EMAC for the past two months, give or take. I really enjoy the workouts and instruction that are given at the school.The instructor provides a straight foward, no non-sense training curriculum and in my opinion is operating one of the best schools around. The instructor is very down to earth and is an all around awesome person. He's very passionate about teaching/sharing his art and it shows in his classes. Along with the awesome instructor and workouts, the school is in a GREAT location. Around the school are a bunch of shops and restaurants(and for the hardcore there is also a 24 hour gym... lol). I would recomend this school to anyone interested in taking advantage of some of the very best training in Bay Area. -ET

I have trained with James for a few years. He is a great teacher along with a friend. His great instruction shows how much he cares about his students, and preserving the study of a traditional Martial Art. If you are looking for a school, and a great teacher who knows his material I would not pass the school up.

James Barrios is one of the best martial artists I know. He has been practicing martial arts since he was very young. I had the pleasure of training with him while he was a member of the Philippine Junior Team. Hardworking and talented, he is one person who is passionate about martial arts. I am happy that he has opened Evolution Martial Arts. I have a 2 year old daughter and I can't wait until she's ready to join his class.

Trained with James for a few years. Great guy, even greater martial artist. His passion for Taekwondo and his attention to detail makes him a very effective teacher. People would do well to learn martial arts under him.

I've been a student of Master Barrios for a couple years and have been practicing taekwondo for 12 years. Master Barrios loves to teach and has vast knowledge about the sport (he has the resume to back it too). Not only is he great at leading workouts but he's there doing it with you. Hands down one of the best schools in the area.

Mr. Barrios is one of the finest people I know, let alone one of the best Taekwondo instructors I have ever had. While he was still a student at Rutgers University, he was holding down a full-time job, all the while tirelessly attending our thrice-weekly Taekwondo practices and all our tests, competitions, and tournaments. His coaching really turned around all of our members' performances, and I couldn't have efficiently run the Rutgers Taekwondo club without him. He has been one of the biggest influences in my life, mentoring me and guiding me not only in the sport of Taekwondo but strengthening me in spirit as well. My tremendous improvement is due to his teaching and dedication all those years. Anyone who has him as a teacher should consider him/herself extremely fortunate. It is rare to find such honesty and integrity in this world of "black belt factories." This school is truly not your generic Taekwondo school.

I used to be instructed by Mr. Barrios, I have to say he is one of the most dedicated martial artist I know. He is always willing to share what he knows with others.

Master Barrios is among the best in the sport. As a former competitive teammate of his at Rutgers University, his practice is unparalleled and his teaching skills are top notch. He was very influential to me through my development as a martial artist. If you are serious about training, it is a privilege to have the chance to be coached by Mr. Barrios. - James Huang 3rd degree black belt, Taekwondo www.kickcoachvideo.com
