Our grandson Thomas Perez had issues with focus and self-control. I mentioned it to a friend at work, she told me about Action Karate Cinnaminson. We took him and he started in Feb. 2016. We felt that private classes at first would be best. After 2 weeks she stated he is ready. He were worry that he would disrupt the class. But she was right he did very well.He continued through his belts was invited to the BBLC in 2019.His confidence also improved. He works hard to accomplish his task. There are times he wants to give up, but we keep pushing him. Here we are 2021 and he is testing for his Jr Blackbelt. He did it he earned the Jr Blackbelt. He continued and is going through the process of hard work and endurance. Here we are again March 2024 invited to the Sr Blackbelt challenge which the testing will take place in June.

I can’t say enough good things about Action Karate Cinnaminson! My son is only 3 (he joined right after his 3rd birthday so we started as soon as he was able) I was nervous because he’s so young but the instructors are all so good with him and all of the students. You can see they truly care about what they do and their students success . Mr.Bobby helped CJ feel comfortable while earning his white belt. My son’s confidence is building and he loves coming to class. If you are on the fence about joining , do it you will not regret it :)

Action Karate has been with us through the dark Covid times.We happened to see a Facebook ad for a free online karate class in spring of 2020. My son tried it out and we were impressed with how engaging the instructor (Mr Brenner) was.He joined as a regular student and stuck with it as the refined the offering. The offering went from 100% online with a mix of local and remote students, to hybrid, to a separation of online students to their own instructor Mr Timin.The instructors not only teach karate but also lesson of the week. Even through a screen my son learned a lot if we could tell that the instructors cared and were very personable.Mr Timin (online instructor) develops a great connection with each of the kids and is great at balancing communication with them (he has a lot of patience with my son who usually replies with a long story).The best moment was when my son earned his yellow belt. He had been having a bad week but after he earned his yellow belt he had a look of relief on his face, a recognition of his efforts.Whether you are looking for an online instructor or a local school, Action offers a very personable approach to learning martial arts.

My son absolutely loves it here! The instructors are so welcoming and patient. I was looking for something to introduce my son to first, all I was looking into was sports, and then his school came across action karate. And we could not be happier we chose this! We go twice a week and not once has my son not wanted to come. Thank you to all the instructors!

Love Action Karate! My 9-year old became a student there in February and absolutely loves it. He is on the Autism spectrum and we were looking for a sport to put him in, and we are so glad we chose karate. I love that the instructors are so helpful and accommodating to all of their students. I watched my son having so much fun during class that I decided to sign up for the adult class myself! I would choose this program over going to the gym any day 😊 Totally recommend it to everyone!

Action Karate is an amazing program! My child started at 3 years old and has learned not only martial arts but discipline, dedication and perseverance. He loves it and has committed to going ahead and earn his black belt! The instructors are great with the kids and keep them engaged. Highly recommend!

Action Karate not only welcomed my daughter but also our family. They have awesome events out of class that support the socializing skills of students from various developmental stages. All the teachers are amazing. They get to know all their students individually and provide positive feedback. Since my daughter started her journey with Action Karate, she has grown not just as a student in class but also as a person. She uses the school’s creed to overcome barriers. Thank you so much, Action, for supporting my daughter’s growth!

My son has been attending Action Karate Cinnaminson for 1 1/2 years and the experience has been amazing! The instructors are hands on and the class availability makes it possible to participate in classes 2-3 times a week even with our busy schedule. It’s a great workout that’s challenging and rewarding!

Our daughter, Autumn, began her Action Karate journey during the pandemic in Spring 2020. She was a very active and social child and needed an outlet for her energy after being socially isolated and confined by the lockdown. She immediately built a rapport with her instructors, Ms Frannie and Mr. McQuade, and enjoyed participating with other students via zoom. She worked on her stretches, katas, and self defense moves. She especially enjoyed Terrific Thursday events and getting valuable advice from the lesson of the week. The Action Karate instructors including Ms.Barb, Ms. Marla and Mr. Weller modeled discipline, commitment, and enjoyed learning so much that Autumn convinced her dad to join too.As parents we appreciated her commitment to her new-found self discipline, which included making her own bed, picking out her own clothes and sitting down to do her homework each afternoon upon arriving home. Through Action Karate Autumn has learned to develop a strong work ethic and realize that it is ok to struggle and not give up. Her face completely lit up when she was selected to join the Black Belt Leadership Group and got to wear the red gi.Autumn has grown stronger both physically and mentally through her journey. She still loves working with Mr. Timin on zoom and also going to the dojo and working with Mr. Gavin and Mr. Fred. We are so proud of her for building her confidence, developing core values of honesty, commitment and grit while maintaining her enthusiasm, creativity and spirit.Thank you Action Karate!Michael and Rhonda Joyce

My son has been going to Action for almost 3 years. He has grown so much since starting karate. He has become much more confident. He used to be very nervous to do anything in front of a group but now he volunteers to lead the student creed and katas. Our whole family has been welcomed into the Action Karate family and we all enjoy going to the community events that Action hosts like Trunk-or-Treat or parents night out.

3 years ago my son started his journey with Action Karate Cinnaminson. He previously tried some sports, but they just weren’t his thing. He loved being out with his friends on the field, but never got into the sport itself and had difficulty focusing on the game. We gave karate a try and we found his calling. He is not the athletic type, but with the mental and physical training he has come a long way. Things I never thought possible for him, he has crushed. He brings home and applies everything he learns. He will be the first one to tell you that you can do anything with self discipline and perseverance. Let’s just say his vocabulary has expanded as well. We are grateful to be part of the Action Karate Family.

We joined Action Karate Cinnaminson a little over a month ago and our daughter LOVES it! The environment is family oriented and very welcoming. Our daughter was very shy at the beginning and in a short period of time we have seen her confidence bloom! She has already stood in front of the class twice to recite the creed. The instructors are very positive! We are very glad that we signed her up with Action Karate Cinnaminson. They are a wonderful group!Judy PlunkettAugust 4

I recently signed up my son Anthony to Action Karate and I haven't regretted one moment of my decision. My family was welcomed by Miss Kim so warmly on our initial visit as we informed her of the reasons why we were there for our son, Anthony. He needed focus, discipline and confidence and in a few weeks, thanks to the great instructors, we have seen Anthony grow, whether its taking initiative, being patient, confident to perform in front of others and perserverence. My wife and I are very happy with our time with Action Karate where you can learn self defense and have fun while you do it..5 stars.

My son has been at Action for 9 years (he is 13) and my daughter (she is 9) for 6 years now. It has been a home away from home for my kids for most of their lives. My son will be testing for his Black belt in June. He earned his junior Black belt 3 years and now is trying to accomplish the next step. My daughter will be testing for her junior Black belt in June.Action has been a great place for the kids from the beginning. The staff is very inviting and will meet you wherever you are with your interests and concerns. What I really like about Action, having a profession in Special Education, is that they are very inclusive to ALL children and go above and beyond to make it a positive experience for ALL children. I don't think there are many places that would work with some of the students/families I have seen come to Action. Action also from the being of the Pandemic allowed students to continue with karate which has made my children's opportunity to test in June still possible which I greatly appreciate.My children have grown in many ways over the years in their development and attending Action I feel has played a role in this development. I feel both kids have learned to make a commitment over years to accomplishing a goal and sticking with it which is emphasized at Action. I recommend any family considering starting karate with their children to step foot in Action because I know you will not be disappointed.

All three of our daughters have been taken Karate at Action for several months now, all three have now earned their next belt. They are building their confidence while learning self defense and a sense of achievement.It’s good to see them away from the television, computers or cell phones. They are learning to interact with other children and make friends. The instructors are excellent with the kids and constantly encourage them. The kids earn what they achieve, nothing is handed to them.I highly recommend Action Karate for anyone thinking of enrolling.

Update November 2020: Here we are, almost 7 years after our son started coming here. He will be testing for his senior black belt in December, and Mr McQuade and Mr Brenner can take a lot of credit for that. They encouraged my son to continue when he wanted to quit, they've been hard on him, but always fair. In a year with many restrictions, they came up with solutions so students could continue their progress toward a higher rank. As I said before, they treat you like family - always friendly and accommodating. There is no other place I would want my son to have earned his black belt. ASAH!===========================================================My son has been a part of the Action Karate family since January 2014. It's been a great journey, in a place who treats everyone walking through that door like family. For our son it's been a journey of learning respect/self respect, discipline/self discipline, building confidence and physical strength. Mr. Brenner and Mr. McQuade do an awesome job - great martial artists and human beings. In addition I want to mention all the "volunteer" instructors - they all do a great job, for us personally Ms. Mary has been a great help. Thank you all for how you have treated my son and us over the past three and a half years. ASAH!

My son (Zakk age 11) took the White Belt Challenge during his time at home because of COVID-19 stay at home. He did Zoom live classes and some pre-recorded classes. He loved it. The instructors were great. He learned some karate moves, but also self-discipline, focus and confidence. The only reason we are not continuing with Action Karate is because they are not close to us. However the staff has gotten him excited to learn more so we are enrolling him in a school close by us so he can continue. Thanks Action Karate staff! He even did the class while we were camping.
