What's one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
Breathe! Don't forget to breathe. Also, tap out when needed. Don't try and be a tough guy/girl. We try to prevent injuries by taping out. Lastly, leave your ego at the door. We are a group of humble men and woman who are here to learn, train, work hard, and most important to have fun.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Esteller MMA was first started in 1984 as Esteller Martial Arts at the San Leandro Boys Club. Since then it has evolved to a TRUE Mixed Martial Arts gym with various styles or Martial Arts taught here. Including our Kickboxing/MMA class.
What do you love most about your job?
I truly believe I have the greatest job in the world. Being able to help people get in shape while also teaching them to defend themselves. My "office" is a Mat, and I am changing lives; while having "strangers" turn into Family.
