Action Karate Doylestown is an outstanding martial arts academy! My son has been attending classes here, and I couldn't be more impressed. The instructors not only teach discipline but also make the classes incredibly fun. I appreciate the personalized attention each child receives, ensuring they progress at their own pace. Highly recommend for anyone looking to instill confidence and discipline in their child while having a blast!

Five stars is the max, but I would give double if I could.We’ve allowed our two kids to enroll in programs and classes that they are drawn to, rather than trying to shoehorn them into our interests, or force them into a commitment for an activity they didn’t ask for in the first place.A bit over a year ago, our (then) 8 year old son expressed interest in karate, and through a circuitous series of events, we landed in AK Doylestown. At first, we loved it because he loved it. Very quickly we noticed changes in his behavior; where before he started he tended to be distracted by all the world has to offer, but was now able to lock in and focus.Miss Nicole made him feel so welcome, seen, and valued. It may be trite to say about a business that they make you feel like family, but it’s absolutely true here. And not just because Miss Nicole’s original teaching assistant was her own son!Soon my wife and I started taking classes (trust me when I tell you, it was very.out of character for the two of us…) It has been transformative for our whole family. We communicate better, we laugh more, and personally, I am in the best physical condition of the last twenty years.As word has spread, more and more families have been coming to AK Doylestown, and just like with my family, you’ll see mom or dad watching their kid train, and a few days later you’ll be learning self defense with that same parent out on the mat. The dojo’s growth hasn’t diluted the product one bit, if anything, it’s better when shared with more people. Mr. Riley is the newest addition to the training staff. He stands approximately 9 feet 7 inches, but never intimidates his students.Again, at the risk of sounding corny, Action Karate Doylestown has been an incredible blessing to our family and our community. Come check it out, you’ll be glad you did!

We started our 3-year-old in classes at Action Karate Doylestown back in December, and it was the best decision! We weren't sure he was old enough yet, but the confidence and focus he has developed in the past few months has been amazing! It has been awesome to watch him grow, and to see how much passion he has developed for Karate! Ms. Nicole & Mr. Riley, along with their leadership team have been nothing but encouraging and supportive with our kiddo! Highly recommend starting them early!

My daughter loves Action Karate of Doylestown. The lead instructors, Nicole and Riley, do an excellent job of instilling discipline and confidence in the kids. The classes are fun and also provide the kids positive habits and valuable information for every day life. I would recommend this Karate studio to everyone.

If you are an adult or have kids, it doesn't matter - this is for you. You sit all day at work and need motivation to work out, it's for you. You don't like gym environments, it's for you. You like having a community, it's for you. You like solitude, it's for you. You have kids and don't have time for yourself, it's for you. You have kids, it's for you.Our son started karate here 9 months ago and the difference in his attitude, confidence, habits, behaviors is enormous. Let's be real, kids don't come with a manual. They say it takes a village, but our village is non existent on a day to day basis, particularly if you are working parents. We found our village and our manual at AK. Miss Nicole and Mr. Riley are phenomenal in getting everyone inspired. They teach kids every single day about what really matters in life. Every month focuses on something different. Our son asks us to do "10 minute tidy" because Miss. Nicole and Mr. Riley ingrained it in them in such a fun and thoughtful manner that it resonates every day with him. Whenever he can't focus, we need to say "natural stance" and that becomes his reset. If he gets angry, he just sits and takes deep breaths. Now seriously, how many 5 year olds can do all this?! Even adults struggle with it!Our son inspired us to try it out too. I don't exercise because I have no motivation - too tired, too much to do, want to sleep, too cold outside - I have all the excuses. But after trying it, we absolutely love it! Me and my husband look forward to going to karate for ourselves. It doesn't matter that I have spondyloarthritis. There are teenagers and 70 year olds in the class giving their best and having fun. Miss Nicole and Mr Riley encourage us and cheer us on. I never thought I'd look forward to exercising but here I am!Honestly, just give it a try. You'll love it! If you want something meaningful, just come to one class, you'll see what I mean.

AK is one of the best things that has happened to my son, thanks to Miss Nicole and Mister Ryley he has managed to be more disciplined, focused and much more respectful than he already was, but above all he now has confidence in itself. It is not just the martial arts but the connection and interaction that the teachers have with the children. I'm very grateful.

My husband and I are super grateful for Action Karate, Mr. Riley and Ms. Nicole.Our son has been taking part in private lessons to work on focus, discipline, with a long term goal of coexisting positively in a group setting.C took part in his first group class this past week which he thoroughly enjoyed from start to finish. Similes for days.We are very happy continuing to make karate part of our sons life. Mr. Riley works so well with him. He has learned to engage with C in fun ninja ways to capture his attention and crush goals. There has been a wonderful shift in our son’s overall disposition since he started karate 3-4 months ago and I couldn’t be happier with the direction we are going.We can’t thank you enough for all you do.

Hi! 😊If you are considering trying karate lessons, I could not possibly recommend Action Karate Fountainville more highly!!!! Our 6 year old has been attending since the beginning of 2023. The value and positive outcomes to his development shaped by his participation in their program is something I am so grateful for. I watch every class feeling so thankful for Ms. Nicole and Mr. Riley. A parent couldn't hope for better karate instructors! They have a student for life, or at least until he's 18. AK Fountainville gets the highest marks for professionalism, expertise, and genuine caring for each individual child as a person. There could be 4 kids or 13 in a class and I see that each one still receives personal attention. This school is a very valuable part of our community and I know you will love them too!!

Action Karate Fountainville is the BEST!!! My son has been attending classes since May and I’ve already seen such an improvement in his focus, attention and, most recently, resilience. Miss Nicole, Mr Riley and Mr Gray are most definitely a dream team - their patience alongside their training techniques speak volumes. Highly recommend for anyone looking to get involved with karate. Assa!
