Action Karate Collingswood is a wonderful martial arts school with amazing instructors! My 7 year-old daughter has been going to AKC for the last year, earning several belts in the process. She’s also had the opportunity to participate in two tournaments which were also a great experiences for her. Sensei Tariq and Sensei Jaden are fabulous instructors who do a great job connecting with their students while teaching them not only martial arts, but the importance of confidence, determination and hard work.

This is our first karate experience and I wish we’d had the opportunity sooner! We’ve seen tremendous growth in our child’s self-control, ability to focus, and developing a concept of work and achievement. He values his time with his senseis and truly views them as mentors.

Absolutely delighted with my daughter's experience at Action Karate in Collingswood! She has been attending classes for a few months, and I can't express enough how much the sensei's genuine care for both the children and the community has made a positive impact. My daughter thoroughly enjoys every class, and we're grateful to be part of such a supportive martial arts community.

Action karate has so much to offer and has been a superb choice for my sons to begin their martial arts journey. What makes Action Karate stand out is the customizable approach that Sensei Tariq and Mr.Jayden use to instruct and encourage each student while in a group setting. They provide strict and firm guidance but are not overbearing and make it fun. They demonstrate a great deal of empathy and students continue to learn valuable lessons on the journey towards success in both karate and life. I have seen an immense improvement in confidence, focus, and stamina in both of my boys.I would highly recommend Action Karate to any parent who is looking for a fun activity in a safe environment for their child to grow physically and mentally.We are so grateful to be apart of Action Karate !

Sensei Tariq & his crew are really wonderful with the kids. My son is in their ninja sharks program, and he often struggles with mutism and performance anxiety. It speaks volumes that less than 2 months in, he is talking in class and tries to do all the moves. I also really appreciate the diversity among the students and instructors - that’s not always easily found in this area.

We love this place...our son started from a Halloween giveaway. He has now been enrolled for 3 months and is a yellow belt. His sensei is well educated and hands on with the kids. We're enjoying our journey to the black belt. We joined to learn how to deal with bullies and ended up learning so much more. This maybe the best thing for your child too! Check it out!

We’ve been at Action Karate for almost six months now. We started when my son turned 4 and my daughter was 6 with the Ninja Sharks program. It’s a great introductory program geared perfectly for that age group. The activities are engaging and fun! Also a great confidence builder. My daughter has since moved up to the White to Red belt program. It’s been so much fun to see her progress. Again, the program is tailored to the age group with more skill based activities. If you are thinking about checking Action Karate out, I highly recommend doing a trial. We did trials at three different places and there was no contest compared to Action!

As a parent of children with special needs it’s always difficult to find a place where there is not just understanding, but acceptance and patience. A lot of places may state they work with children with special needs but there is so many varying factors when it comes to needs/support. When a place lacks the understanding and patience, It’s easy to become frustrated because sometimes kids don’t fall right into place with their peers. After initially speaking with Sensei Jaden about the program at Action Karate, I decided to bring my boys in to give it a try. Sensei Tariq and Jaden have been amazing!! They are so patient and work with my boys to meet them at their level all while still pushing them to achieve new skills. I can’t recommend Action Karate Collingswood enough!!

Our family loves this karate studio! After trying several others, it was clear that Action Karate was the right vibe for us. Super friendly and fun, not intimidating.The instructors are so kind, knowledgeable, engaging, and patient — especially with the littlest ninjas. You can really tell they are passionate about the craft and about teaching.It’s been amazing to see our kindergarten gain confidence and coordination each week!The classes are quick (~30ish min) but action packed, including time for stretching, practicing new skills, and goal setting. There are plenty of options throughout the week that make scheduling easy, including some Zoom classes.

We've been taking out 5yo son here for the past several weeks and even in that short amount of time we've seen such positive changes in him. He's more confident and outgoing. The teachers are especially nice and great with young kids. We look forward to every lesson.

Truthfully, I do not know anything about karate. But I read about Action Karate and I really liked their approach and positive reinforcement so although I live in Philadelphia, I decided to register my grandson at the Collingswood action karate because it’s close to his mothers home. My grandson is a little unsettled due to the recent death of his father, so I was looking for something that could get him involved and active and work on his self control. Although, he’s only been to about six classes. I am already impressed at the very professional way the instructors deal with the students and the way they do so much positive reinforcement. I am glad I chose Action Karate Collingswood.

Absolutely the best! Sensei Tariq and Mr. Jaden are amazing with students of all ages. They really care and are incredibly patient, always taking the time to focus on each student's individual needs. Everyone we have met at Action Karate has been great. Starting this program has been one of the best decisions I've ever made for myself and my children. It has made such a huge difference in our lives by building confidence, developing resilience, teaching respect and getting us in shape. I can't recommend them highly enough. You should definitely give Action Karate Collingswood a try - you won't regret it!

Sensei Tariq has a special gift. It is a combination of being a highly qualified martial arts artist and physical expertise. Tariq provides a safe non competitive program that builds character development and strong morals. I have witnessed the perseverance, love, and joy of learning reflected in the members who have joined his classes. Tariq is patient and his classes are fun!

Sensei Tariq is extremely personable and high energy which is what my teenager needs and is responding to. We have witnessed tremendous growth in our son's physical ability, including strength and he is exuding much more confidence from his positive experience at the dojo. I highly recommend Action karate to other families that are looking for their children to have a positive physical outlet while mastering their martial arts training!
