Erik Scott:

Erik is really excited to be a member of the Extreme Team here at Extreme Martial Arts this Summer. Erik loves the energy that the kids bring to the gym, and enjoys watching and helping them learn discipline, leadership skills, and the importance of self control.


For Erik, Summers were all about family and VBS, and when he got older he was able to grow into a leadership role at his church.


After High School, he received his bachelors degree in Communication Studies at Texas State University, and decided the Hill Country will always be home.


He believes that it is important to be active and is excited to be a part of Extreme's mission to provide a safe space for your kids to learn and grow; which is the perfect place to be introduced to the positive effects that all exercise brings. He looks forward to meeting your children and getting to know them better!
