My son with autism had the opportunity to try Karate with love and acceptance especially from mr. Clark. He was welcomed despite of his behavior challenges. We cannot wait to come back!

My Black Belt Journey: Askia Muhammad, My black belt journey began at Action Karate HV back in 2020. My love for karate movies was my inspiration to learn. Since joining Action Karate, I have gained strength, self-discipline, and confidence. Black belt training has been difficult. My instructors are tough, but they push me to believe in myself. My goal is to one day be a black belt instructor! I hope to continue to be a member of the Action Karate community for as long as I can.

I've been training at Action Karate HV for over four years now. To say that I have enjoyed it is a bit of an understatement. The instructors have provided opportunities for me to do things I never thought that I would do. Not only is it fun, but I've developed new friendships and look forward to going to class. I started training at Action HV because I saw they way that Mr. Clark, Mr. Atkins and Mr. Mat worked with my son who was 3 at the time. I not only recommend the school, but continue to train after earning my first degree black belt.

If you're looking for a karate school for your child to learn self-discipline, focus, and concentration then you've come to the right place. The instructors here are fantastic at cultivating young minds, using karate as the art to improve results. Our daughter has had self-control and self-discipline issues and we've noticed a huge improvement from her training. Our entire family now trains at the school, including my wife and I. We love training here, and love the respectfulness that training in the martial arts has brought to our family.

I never imagined that when we had my son's 6th birthday party (3 years ago) that I would find myself training as well. The community of Huntingdon Valley AC, is welcoming and after mom's free in May, I was hooked. Family class is my favorite time! I get to work with my kids and the many other families to keep getting stronger together.

Our journey with Action Katate HV startedwith our youngest son who started at 4 years old. I started training shortly after him. 16 years later we are still at AKHV and it's best investment we could have ever made for our family. The instructors genuinely care for their students and want them to succeed in all facets. I can attest that they build not only strong martial artists, but also individuals of strong character, resilient minds, and inspiring confidence. I count myself proud to be part of the Action HV family.

My name is Stephen G and next month on December 4th will be 8 years since I started at Action Karate Huntingdon Valley as a 4 year old. It has been very challenging but my instructors have always met my needs to make me successful. They have been great mentors and have instilled in me a valuable sense of self worth and confidence that has carried over into my social interactions and success with my schoolwork. I feel my physical, mental and emotional development has benefitted from my karate instruction and I want to strive for many degrees beyond my Adult Black Belt next month. I am nervous but also happy and excited to be challenged because I know I am prepared.
