Action Karate Bethlehem is beyond amazing! The atmosphere and instructors are incredible! They are the definition of patience. My daughter has made so many new friends as well as taking away valuable information for each lesson she’s been to. Action karate is more than karate, they have become our family ♥️

My son started karate at AK Bethlehem back in October 2023. It was completely new for the both of us but I wanted to keep him active and around kids his age since he's not in daycare or school. The instructors have welcomed him with open arms and he's learning so much which is applied at karate and home! Thank you to Ms. Casey, Mr. Ron, Ms. Lauren, Mr. R and all of the instructors for being amazing with our little ninjas!

Our son, Grayson, started at AK Bethlehem several years ago and is currently working towards earning his jr. Black Belt. His older brother earned his black belt many years ago. Because Grayson looks up to him, he too expressed interest in karate. So we thought that we would give it a try and we are grateful that we did . Grayson has learned a great deal over the last couple of years. He has gained some confidence and made new friends along the way. The instructors are kind, knowledgeable and understanding. We are happy with the experience at AK Bethlehem!

My daughter started at AK Bethlehem in 2021, because she expressed that karate was something she would like to try. She has learned so much, and gained a lot of confidence through participating in classes and tournaments. She is currently working toward earning her Junior Black Belt, and we are so grateful for Action Karate's supportive and welcoming environment. It has been exciting to watch her progress, and we look forward to what comes next!

My son Evan Hosking's Action karate journey. At the start of the pandemic Evan wanted to try karate and my wife found a Facebook black Friday special. He gave it a try and enjoyef it. As time went on and things started opening up he started playing different sports and it became more difficult to make it to enough classes. There was a few times that he didn't want to come to karate but he pushed through it and made it to class. He joined black belt leadership at purple belt. He started helping out with the ninja classes a little bit. Now he is ready to try and tes. For his black belt.

Journey to Junior Black Belt…My son, Lucas, has been a student at Action Karate Bethlehem since February 2021. I have to say that it has been quite an amazing journey, for both of us, getting to this point where he is preparing to test for his Jr. Black Belt. Lucas started this karate adventure as a shy 10-year-old kid who lacked self-confidence and had absolutely no experience with martial arts beyond watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles when he was younger. He was interested in trying karate, but was tentative about it up until the moment he met Miss Casey for his initial private lesson. Miss Casey was wonderful with Lucas and was able to coax him out of his shell while teaching some basic kicks and punches that form the foundation of karate. Lucas left that trial private lesson with his new karate gi and gear, and he was absolutely hooked. Fast forward to the present, and Lucas is extremely dedicated to karate, as he attends his regular classes 5 days per week, helps in Ninja (ages 3-6 years) classes each of those days, participates in sparring lessons, and is a member of the Senior Demo Team.As a parent, there are so many changes I have seen in Lucas that can be directly attributed to his involvement in karate. He has grown into a confident young man, who has impressive patience and kindness with an aptitude for teaching. These qualities are best displayed during his Black Belt Leadership classes, where Lucas has been assisting the instructors with teaching the Ninjas. Lucas’s self-discipline continues to improve, and it translates into his home life by completing homework and chores without needing to be prompted. The qualities of respect, courage, and teamwork develop naturally simply by going to and participating in classes. I have observed the changes in Lucas’s focus, determination, and perseverance with growth every time he faces difficulty or challenge.Action Karate has made a huge difference in Lucas’s life and I couldn’t be any happier that we are part of the Action Karate family!

My 12 year old son started at Action Karate Bethlehem over a year ago after transferring from another martial arts studio. He's been training overall since he was 5 years old. I have to say the staff at Action Karate has been amazing in helping him continue his journey to now becoming a black belt. The instructors are great with the students and very interested in their development. I would highly recommend them for anyone looking to start or continue their karate experience!

When my son first went to Action Karate, we had high expectations, because he was being bullied at school and even though he said he didn't care, sometimes he looked sad and worried.Action Karate has increased his confidence, he seems happier, and bullying seems to be in the past.Thank you for working to inspire children's lives and teach them to be wise, honest and strong.

Action Karate has been great for my son. He's a very active little boy and solid direction is best for him. They have good focus on positive vocabulary and verbal stimulation as well as well timed exercises and lessons for their age (3-5 yr olds). I love the help they get from the older classmates. It's good getting direction and aid from cool older kids who are setting the example for them to follow. Lessons in action. Good job guys:)

My daughter has been with Action Karate since September and it has been an amazing experience. Action Karate Bethlehem really cares about the lessons they teach and are always willing to provide extra help when needed to make sure our children meet their goals. My son joined Action Karate in February I was very skeptical about if he was going to be able to progress. Miss Casey and her team worked wonders with him and even though he still causes some disruption during class he has made so much progress and continues to grow every class. Thank you Action Karate you have definitely made a difference in my children's lives and we are very grateful.
