Zone Martial Arts
Zone Martial Arts teaches Tae Kwon Do for overall defense, with an emphasis on kicking attacks and defense. We add American Boxing for upper body strength, close-in standing defense, and Jui Jitsu for prone defense and grappling. Finally, for grappling and street fighting skills, Master Erik Ekholm (U.S. Army, Veteran) teaches Krav Maga, a military self-defense developed in Israel that combines all these disciplines with realistic fight training to keep our students safe in any situation.
This unique approach to martial arts was developed by Master Erik Ekholm, a 6th degree Black Belt in taekwondo with many years of military training and certification in Krav Maga , Brazilian jiu-jitsu, Kickboxing, and American Boxing. Master Ekholm’s martial arts training started in 1977 in Jacksonville, Florida at the age of 12. He was immediately hooked; the structure and discipline, which was taught in a fun and challenging manner, developed his deep passion for the martial arts.

Building for the future…EXCELLENT. Thank you MUCH.. ZONE Leadership. for inspiration, guidance, terrific training. What a stellar lifetime investment!
Great school. Small family business but run very well. The kids love it there and the main coach (erik) doesn’t just teach them the physical aspects of martial arts, he focuses on mental toughness, doing what’s right, and teaching the kids to NOT be the bully. The physical fitness is also great for the kids. Lastly the kids have to earn their progress rather than just getting “a trophy for signing up”. We tried a corporate place first and were glad we left and committed to zone.
If your looking👀for a place⛩for yourself or your kids to learn👊karate and self🥷defense, then Zone is the✅right place! Not only do Zone🥋instructors teach🤺fighting, but they also teach life🌎skills. For example skills that include respect,🧎♂️discipline, focus, staying😁positive,🧠learning💬social skills, and much more! Zone also offers group🏋♀️🏋♂️🏋fitness so you can accomplish👍your goals!

“Great environment and instructors!”

My self confidence, control, and overall attitude has improved since I started…I wish I would have joined a long time ago! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! The Academy is TOP NOTCH! I can’t get enough 🙂
Great environment and instructors! My son has opened up a lot and made friends since he’s been here. They have large classes but give attention to every kid. Would highly recommend for everyone!
Uma Kayla G
My youngest has enjoyed every class! My oldest has been participating in the ladies series. She recently participated in the Teen Police Academy and had confidence taking charge in a drill, approaching the boys for their names, etc. I asked her what made her feel so confident (as this is 180° from her normal shyness) and she said ‘going to the ladies classes’. She is now asking to get enrolled after her sport season.

“Great place Awesome people live this place
“Such an amazing and Profesional atmosphere.”
“Great for youth to build confidence, discipline and use energy.”
This place is clean and nice. Everyone was very welcoming and made my kid feel safe and comfortable. Only been once so far. But plan on signing up for the year. My son was very happy and had a fun class.
This place is very unprofessional I would never in life refer this business. I have been rescheduled 4 times and this last time was not even a hour before being there not sure if it’s a race thing but Steve unprofessional
Great for youth to build confidence, discipline and use energy. Have a great teen group too. Can go 2-4 times a week so I get my me time regularly. 🙌🏾

“The instructor is very patient with kids from all ages.”
“Mr. Cornado offers the best martial arts in San Marco!”
Disclaimer: I haven’t taken a class yet but my car battery died at the light on Atlantic and Hendricks by the Chase bank…. and Nathanial Coronado offered to help me push my car somewhere safe. Him and the woman he was with were so happy and kind to help! Genuine kind hearted people, he didn’t bring up his business until I asked what he did for work. Signed up as soon as I got home.
Very good training to help kids grow through life. The instructor is very patient with kids from all ages. It’s also nice that parents can be involved by partition in the training. It’s two times a week and I like the fact that kids have to be respectful, positive, and discipline themselves through their training. So far so good.
Mr. Cornado offers the best martial arts in San Marco! If you are looking for a family friendly environment but also a workout, this is the place!
