Thank you so much Action Karate Main Line! My son is a bright boy but required a lot of redirecting. We were struggling how to channel his energy and placed in him karate when he was 4. Over just few years, he has shown amazing improvement in maturity, focus and agility. I find myself also learning to respond better as a parent, using lessons and tools they've taught in action karate. They relate amazing to kids. Also had a birthday party there and HUGE shout out to the team who ran it. Cannot recommend them enough!

We have been very impressed with the staff at Action Karate Main Line. These classes are no joke, these kids are WORKING. The instructors take a lot of time to make sure the kids are learning the moves and doing them safely. My child has gotten so much stronger since she started this summer! I definitely recommend.

My daughter started at AK Main Line in Jan 2021. Over the last 2.5 years she has learned resilience, responsibly and self-control. She is currently training to take the black belt test in December. Mr. Freed and his team of instructors are wonderful. Always supportive and easy to work with. We love being a part of the AK Main Line karate family.

My son has been going to Action Karate here in Ardmore since 2021 and has worked his way up to brown belt. Coming here has really helped him grow. It has helped him become more disciplined and thoughtful as well as giving him the tools needed to be a leader. The instructors are great, I highly recommend it!
Action Karate Main Line changed my life! Prior to my enrollment, I was not exercising at all and did not have the best eating habits. Action Karate Main Line is not just a karate program, it is a way to develop healthy habits little by little, every day! My daily activities have grown to include: planks every morning, hydrating every morning, and a healthy dose of discipline. I would highly recommend! If you are on the fence, just go for it. You won’t regret it!

Action Karate Main Line has been a great experience. My son started a couple years ago and now I train there also. It is a wonderful community and everyone is extremely positive. The Karate instruction is excellent, but it is also all about personal growth for each student. No matter what your level, the idea is to always look for ways to get better. The instructors take time to really know every student so they can find their strengths and also areas for growth. The follow up and communication about your child is well beyond what others offer. My son started out working on areas such as focus and self discipline while learning the basics of Karate. Now, we are both training and working to become instructors. (This will be my son's first job, so he is excited to see it through) Action Karate gave us an area of growth we never would have imagined just a couple years ago.

After a traumatic experience, my son is able to smile again.He started to be confident and address some issues doing Karate and it has taught him discipline and a strong work ethic.However, karate itself couldn’t have done that if there weren’t professional and passionate instructors.Thank you Mr. Wilde and Mr. Freed.My son couldn’t reach this point in karate without your support.He is starting to trust in people again.

My son joined Action Karate about 6 months ago, he was a little shy when he first started but as he got into a weekly schedule he became more comfortable and confident. He’s truly enjoying his classes and is progressing very quickly. He’s already an orange belt ☺️☺️. As a parent I love the environment along with the teachers. They take their time with the kids and if any child is struggling they’ll assist along the way.

We’ve been at action karate mainline for a little over a year now and it’s been great. I love that I can choose the classes each week and I’m not tied into a particular day or time. I have 2 kids in the ninja class and I ended up joining the adult class. Karate has definitely increased confidence in my 5 year old and has been a good lesson in focus for my 6 year old. The adult class has been a great way to work out and have some “me time”. All the instructors are amazing!
