Elite Training Center (formerly LOTAR Self Defense) is located in Redondo Beach, California, in the South Bay of Los Angeles. Elite Training Center is a martial arts school focusing on self-defense and fitness. Students include South Bay residents and those in the L.A. region, male and female, adult and youth, those with no prior self-defense experience and those experienced in martial arts.
Teaching confidence while respecting others, our school is founded on the four principals of Respect, Honor, Discipline, and Strength. Techniques include LOTAR and Krav Maga (intuitive self-defense independent of strength or size), Muay Thai kickboxing, Adult Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) as sport, youth MMA that emphasizes our founding principles, and Kali/Silat/Eskrima (Filipino open hand and stick/weapon fighting). Elite Training Center instructors are experienced both in teaching and in application of defense techniques in actual street or combat situations.
