We've had a fantastic experience at Action Karate! The instructors are not only highly skilled but also incredibly patient and encouraging. My 10-year-old son has grown not just in his karate skills but also in confidence and discipline. The classes are well-structured and they always ensure each child is engaged and learning at their pace. Highly recommend to any parent looking to introduce their child to martial arts in a supportive and fun environment!

My son started karate about 3 years ago. Our daughter had already been there and had received her junior Black Belt. He thought it looked interesting and wanted to be like her. It is probably one of the few times he has ever asked to join anything. He is a bit of a shy guy and his confidence isn't always the best. At karate, however, his confidence has grown and he has really stepped out of his comfort zone. He enjoys going and is really looking forward to testing for his junior Black Belt in a few weeks. We are so proud of his growth these past few years! The teachers have always been kind and reassuring to him. They must be doing something right to have 2 junior Black Belts in the family! We look forward to seeing all he can do in the future!

My daughter Caitlyn has been a student at Action Karate Jamison since April 2020. The training there has helped Caitlyn grow in confidence and now she is a black belt candidate. Master Alex (Woojin Kang) is extremely dedicated. He and the other instructors are great at motivating students of all ages. They not only teach sudents self defense, they also teach the importance of self-confidence, focus, and respect.

My son has been a student at Action Karate Jamison for a few months now and I have already seen such a change in his confidence and assertiveness. When we signed up, we were able to talk with the director about the skills and behaviors we wanted to focus on improving or strengthening, and the experience truly feels personal, even with large class sizes. Very grateful we found Action Karate!

Action Karate has been our second home for over two years! We began our journey at Action as it had already came extremely highly recommended. After our first class we knew it was the perfect place for our daughter. Fast forward to today and she is currently the strongest, most confident, healthy, disciplined and dedicated version of herself we could ever hope for. Action fully understands the wholesome components necessary to support children as they explore the world around them. We are forever indebted to AK Jamison for welcoming us into this lifestyle! Thanks Sensei Michael, Master Alex and Miss Ashlee!

My family and I absolutely love coming here. At first, only our child was signed up for classes, but due to the community and the people that work there, my boyfriend and I decided to join. It’s been amazing and a real bonding experience for both my boyfriend and I, but also with our child. Now, we can help our child improve on their karate moves, but also help us work towards different goals and behaviors talked through at their class. 10/10 would recommend!!If you’re looking for a place to build confidence, work on your child’s behaviors, lessons that help build stronger routines for your child, and a good place for you or your child to burn out some energy, this is the place to go!

Our son started at Action Karate back in 2019 when they conducted some classes at his school. He was in Kindergarten back then and he absolutely loved those classes and we eventually became a part of the Action family.We can see the immense change in him. He has become more focused, determined, learnt to speak up for himself which was our biggest concern.All the teachers are absolutely amazing. They're so much invested in all the kids. They give individual attention as well to kids who need that extra help and push.4+ years and our son will be testing for his black belt soon! Thank you to all the teachers who always go that extra mile for their students.

Terrible place, strictly and clearly a pyramid scheme. They don't allow you to cancel, proceed to bill you. Child gets nothing from the range of frequently changing instructors who are only there doing community service required by action karate's black belt programTo respond to their generic and, again, disappointing response - with lack of accountability -Don't waste your money here. They do not listen to your wishes. I can upload some proof of my conversations stating "I'd like to cancel and not bring my daughter in" where they respond "bring her in we'll talk here" completely disregarding and disrespecting my parenting. They are not even paying attention clearly and didn't read my 5 text messages and several emails. At this point, I'd happily settle this with litigators.You guys have people pay more for the black belt program and have them ( a range of ages and people in the black belt program ) teaching our children as it's "mandatory for them to do "community service" to obtain their belt, but it's poorly run and it would be a nice concept, if they actually learned ANYTHING. It's messy, our children became numbers, not even, and we'd be Better off letting them go to a free playground to get their yayas out. The instructors- constantly changing, there's nothing being learned, we're paying 70 dollars a class for them to sub out their work to their own clients. Clearly all a Pyramid scheme and I could tell the first day when they pitched me the full deal. I did it bc my daughter wanted to learn and we as parents wanted her to learn a sense of discipline. Can't learn discipline if they're not disciplined or morally intact themselves!

I am from out of town and decided to try out a lesson with Sara. At first the moves didn’t seem to be that difficult, but as we progressed with the lesson, it started getting harder. As I am not the most flexible, the high kick was challenging for me. Though Sara took the time and patience to show me different ways of doing the move so I wouldn’t get hurt. Her expertise in karate is also apparent, as she is able to teach so many different people of different skill levels. I suggest if anyone comes down for a lesson, they should ask for Sara!!!

My daughter Abigail just recently started at Action Karate Jamison about two months ago. She absolutely loves it. At first she was very shy but all of the instructors worked with her and eventually brought her out of her shell. Every week she is so excited to go in and learn with all of her friends and I especially love seeing how passionate and dedicated the instructors are to teaching. I am so incredibly proud of her and would absolutely recommend this experience to anyone.

I started at Action Karate Jamison when I was only 9 years old, and I fell in love with it immediately. For the past 12 years, karate has been the only constant factor in my life as I explored new interests in various sports and other extracurricular activities. Even today as a full time college student, I am able to train and teach and see first hand how being a part of the Action Karate family has made waves in my life and in who I am as a person today. Sensei Michael, Mr. Hodum, Mr. M and Ms Ashlee are the best mentors I could have ever asked for, and I look to them today as I navigate career opportunities and other big life changes. Action Karate Jamison has truly made me the person I am today, and I will always thank my parents for signing me up and continuously pushing me to reach my goals.

We have been a part of the AK family since 2019, when my oldest child was a little over 3 years old. The staff at AK worked with my son at several classes before we officially joined, and at the time my son was not motivated and was reluctant to follow instructions (as many 3 year-olds are). Fast-forward to 2022, my oldest and middle (4 1/2 y.o.) sons are both at AK Jamison, and eager to participate, learn, and excel! They have both done tournaments, and it is amazing to see them reciting the kata in front of judges and an audience. AK Jamison truly is a family; not just for members, but for the whole community- they frequently have free community classes and events during holidays. Each of the staff members makes a point to assist any and every student during every class, in order to perfect their skills- whether it be a martial arts move, an exercise, or simply sitting or standing still with patience and discipline. My oldest is now frequently raising his hand to volunteer for demonstrations or to answer questions, and has led the class in the student creed. I am constantly amazed at how far he's come, and I can't wait to see my youngest (daughter, currently almost 2) perform at AK Jamison.

They are truly devoted to the children that they teach. They are focused on teaching life lessons and discipline in a very thorough manner. Every young child seems to understand and absorb the lessons that they teach which can be very difficult when dealing with kids. Kudos to the Action Karate family and thank you for making us feel at home!!!

The Instructors are extremely enthusiastic , exude positivity, and are engaging with all the students My daughter is on the Autism Spectrum and attempting to earn her Black Belt. They have welcomed her, understanding her unique challenges. She is treated as any other student but if she needs a little extra assistance, they take the time to see she fully grasps the techniques involved. Her confidence and physical abilities has grown further than we could imagineHighly recommend taking a look at Action Karate at any one of their locations for your child's Martial Arts experience (ok Adults too) .
