This place is great & has amazing teachers
We signed my son up with Action Karate about a month ago and could not be happier with them and their program! He absolutely loves it, the instructors are extremely attentive and engaging, and it is overall one of the best experiences we have had my son participate in. I cannot recommend Action Karate Cherry Hill enough!!!

I love taking classes at AK Cherry Hill, I started with a women’s self defense class and loved it since!! Ms Kelly is beyond helpful and Mr. Keane is an awesome instructor! It’s an amazing community, always fun, and a great workout.

I am so glad I walked in to Action Karate Cherry Hill. You just know when you’re in the right place. I’m pretty shy and insecure around others - especially when doing something new but Ms. Kelly and Mr. Keane made me feel comfortable from when I walked in the door. Their mode of instruction is tailored to individual needs. No judgment and no pressure - just positive reinforcement and confidence building. I am grateful to have found this place. Thank you!

I started my 10 year old with Ms Kelly and Mr Keane in the fall and it has been an amazing experience! My daughter loves it but I do too. Ms Kelly and Mr Keane are amazing with the kids and celebrate their wins with us as much as we do. I'm so happy we found Action Karate in Cherry Hill. It's our new home away from home!

My experience with Miss Kelly and Mr Keane was the most positive. I absolutely love the style of karate, the one on one attention the kids receive is beyond anything I've seen in a Karate Studio. Everything is always spoken about in a positive inspirational way. I would recommend this place a thousand times over.

I am so happy we joined Action Karate! Mr. Keane, Miss Kelly, and staff members have high energy and make the class so much fun for the kids while teaching them techniques and skills. My daughter joined the Ninja sharks group and she was very shy at first but through their dedication in a personal level she has overcome her fear and can’t wait to go! I am very impressed with the structure of the class and that everyone is involved and the children are attentive through the entire class. They teach self defense, self discipline, and active listening to the students while creating a fun and interactive environment and that is very important to me. I would highly recommend this group to anyone who may be interested in sending their child to a karate class or even joining yourself!

Action Karate has been amazing for my 3 year old. Both Mr Keane and Miss Kelly have been so patient and attentive to him. He loves it and is learning so much. Pretty sure he would go every day if he could.

Nothing but great things to say about Action Karate in Cherry Hill. Mr. Keane & Mrs. Kelly have been nothing short of amazing. We came across their fun trial class over the winter break -- Kickin' It with the Grinch & my kids instantly fell in love with the class. (Mind you, this is their 3rd karate program they have tried through the last 2.5 years. Third times a charm!) My two are now yellow belts with 2 stripes each, with a goal of earning their black belt! I love watching their confidence and determination grow on a weekly basis. Thank you to their wonderful instructors who devote their patience and time!

Action karate has been such an amazing experience for our family. We started with just our son Declan, who was 3 at the time, and now both my sons 4&13 AND myself are all karate members! It has helped me to build a bond with my sons and has helped to build confidence, especially with my teenager. Mr Keane and Ms Kelly are the greatest teachers. I could not have asked for a better sport to get my boys involved in. We are so grateful to have found our new family at Action Karate

I did a class with Ms. Kelly and Mr. Keane and had a great learning experience. You can tell they’re very passionate about what they do and they made sure everyone has plenty of practice to get each movement right and it was a very large class. Ms. Kelly led the class and is so sweet and easy to talk to.
