Zenki Dojo in Los Feliz offers a practical approach to self-defense and fighting—along with a state-of-the-art gym and personal fitness training.
The word Zenki combines two concepts: Zen refers to the meditative practice and a calm state of mind; Ki means energy, life-force, breath. Zenki Dojo’s approach embodies both these concepts.
Tim Santos, Zenki Dojo’s founder, had a diverse martial arts curriculum in mind when he opened the school in 1997. The variety of classes at Zenki Dojo reflect Santos’ own extensive martial arts training background—white crane kung fu, judo, muay thai and Gracie jiu jitsu.
Sensei Santos is a fifth-degree black belt in kenpo jitsu ryu—a form of karate that blends the circular motions of kung fu with the power punches of shotokan and the paralyzing grips and limb-locks of jujitsu. It’s a modern style, steeped in tradition.
The iconic Bruce Lee combined fighting styles to create his own martial art form. Santos follows that example and continues to pursue a multi-disciplinary approach to kenpo jitsi ryu and other martial arts in his own practice and in the Zenki Dojo curriculum.

Zenki Dojo offers a wide variety of classes:

Kenpo-Jitsu Ryu
Chi Gung
Iaido / Kendo Renshu
Muay Thai
Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)
CrossFit Group and Privates
Private One-On-One Martial Arts Classes
Boxing (one on one and group classes)
Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

“A Great big, Small-Town Newspaper”

The area of Los Feliz, Silver Lake and the Hollywood Hills is a growing, dynamic, eclectic slice of Los Angeles with enough issues and interesting people, places and stories to tell that we felt it deserved its own newspaper.
Since the successful launch of the Los Feliz Ledger in 2005, we have caught on with local residents and business leaders as the source for area information, news and guidance for goods and services.

Currently, we distribute 34,500 copies to homes and business on the last Thursday of each month. Research shows there is a “pass-a-long” factor of three times that amount, as the newspaper is passed from reader to reader in a household or business. For Ledger advertisers, that represents 100,000 potential readers each month.

Not only do we deliver these potential new customers, but we bring to you active and community-minded customers. Readers have told us time and time again they support the paper’s advertisers as a way of demonstrating their own commitment to community.

Whether it’s helping local readers understand how complex city, county, state or nationwide issues affect them, or a story about the first “Princess of Silver Lake,” or a local firefighter receiving a commendation for heroism, the Ledger, as one reader put it, is “a great big, small-town newspaper.”

The Los Feliz Village Business Spotlight: Sumi’s!

Artist quality accessories and gifts.

1812 N Vermont Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90027
(323) 660-0869

http://www.sumisanywhere.com/

Established in the spring of 2005, Sumi’s has become a destination for unique jewelry, gifts and more. Owner, Sumi Siegel, has been in retail in some capacity since the 80s. In 1999 she helped her mother Carita start a handbag company called Carita Viola Designs. All the bags are designed and made by Carita in her Helsinki, Finland studio. At Sumi’s, you’ll find an exclusive selection of her mother’s work, from purses to table runners.
“Before opening the store, I was selling my mom’s bags to other stores as well as at art festivals all over California. One day in March of 2005 my husband Max and I were taking a walk in our neighborhood, when we came across a vacant store front for rent. I was already selling my mom’s work, so it just made sense to open a store.” Sumi and Max built and designed the store themselves. The architectural salvage used to create much of the space makes for a visually stimulating atmosphere. The six large jewelry cases in the store make for an impressive selection. “Though my mom’s bags started it all, we’re best known for our jewelry. The range of price and style is really broad. I wanted to have a store that everyone could shop at. So, you’ll find the classic conservative piece as well as the edgy bold piece. The main criteria I use for selecting jewelry for the store is that it be handmade and that the source be the artist themselves. Being special is important too. This philosophy goes for the rest of my merchandise as well.”
In March of 2011, Sumi finally did what her customers suggested she do… start her own jewelry line. Emma Lou by Sumi’s is made by Sumi herself. It’s affordable, pretty, and the focus of jewelry for sale online. Everything is made to order and if you want something customized, Sumi can do that too.
In the spring of 2014, the store was relocated to Vermont Ave. in Los Feliz.
See the store in person at 1812 N. Vermont Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90027

This place is great! We took our clogged dusty old dirt devil here to be serviced.. Got it back and it run as if it was brand new. They unclogged it, replaced the belt, new bag plus cleaned it up and looks so nice. All for 35 dollars. What a deal. I was just going to buy a new vacuum but no need to now. Friendly service. Picked up some extra cleaning supplies as well.
