We have seen so much growth in our son (karate skills and in his character) since he began at age 3. The instructors take to heart getting to know each child and connecting with them. They meet students at whatever level they are at and help them progress. My son treasures each of them and walks taller because of the confidence and strength they have helped him find. Couldn’t recommend them more highly.

Our kids started classes earlier this year and they love it! The instructors are friendly and really take the time to work with our kids when they need the extra help. There are lots of fun special days each month and the kids look forward to each of those. It’s a super family friendly atmosphere and we’re happy we’ve chosen to be a part of the Nazareth AK family 😊

Update: this first post was 5 years ago. Now at age (well, not young) I decided to try karate myself. Still love this place. They are SO supportive and everyone, employees and classmates, are so nice. In the few months since I joined, I've lost a little weight, lost even more inches, learned new defense techniques, gotten stronger, and am having SO MUCH FUN.ORIGINAL POST: This place has been a blessing for my son and I. It has a wonderful after-school program but more importantly the care and concern shown to my son has boosted his confidence and given him a drive to succeed. He loves the karate classes and always speaks well of all the instructors. Love this place!

Our daughter has been going to AK since she was 4 (she's now almost 7). Within 3 weeks we could see her focus, discipline and confidence go through the roof. She has grown so much thanks to the programs that AK offers and we are forever grateful for that. Staff is so kind and communicative, and there are always fun events going on. Whether you are 4, 40, or 102, Action Karate will help you meet whatever your goals have.

Action Karate has been such a positive impact to our family. Our 8 year old son has been attending for less than a year and he has excelled in his skills so much. He has a blast and is slowly becoming the best karate kid he can be right in front of my eyes. It’s amazing. They give the kids so much room to grow and have fun. We really love being apart of the AK family. 10/10 recommended!!

Both of my children have been involved with Action Karate Nazareth since they were 5 years old and over the years I have seen a huge positive change in their character and self-confidence. My son was very shy and guarded and has grown into a confident and social young man who values respect. He holds homself to his own high standards. He has progressed and earned his junior black belt with the help of all of our amazing instructors. He is currently working on his senior black belt. My daughter has become strong and outspoken and can hold her own as she works towards her junior black belt. She has made friends and loves her teachers so much. Right now they're both on par to earn their next black belt at the same time and that would be an AMAZING experience. I would highly recommend Action Karate to any parent. It isn't just about defending yourself but also learning life lessons along the way and developing those young minds into wonderful and respectful people. Thank you to everyone at Action Karate Nazareth!

My daughter has been involved in Action Karate for over 2 years now and she absolutely loves the classes and instructors. She has grown and matured so much from the lessons she has learned through the instructors and also through summer camp. It is such a positive and welcoming environment that we are so proud she is a part of!

Action Karate Nazareth has undoubtedly been one of the most influential and best decisions we have ever made as Parents for our two sons. They have been going to Action Karate Nazareth for the past three years and have successfully achieved their Junior black belts. From the Grand Master Seth to all our kids instructors Mr Dylan, Ms Alicia, Ms Megan, Mr Michael, Ms Casey our kids have really enjoyed their journey to their Junior Black Belts.Along side learning defensive techniques, the school has also taught them how to be confident, self determined, disciplined and how to carry oneself in school.They make the classes fun and interactive. The instructors make sure the kids understand the moves before moving onto the next one. It is definitely not one of those schools where you are rushed to the next belt cycle. I highly recommend Action Karate Nazareth to any parent or adult who is looking for some extra curricular activities for themselves or theirs kids to learn the amazing world of martial arts. Great safe school, environment and teachers.

Action Karate Nazareth has been the best thing for my son. The staff is always amazing and so kind, and make my whole family feel like we’re all family. The extra activities are so great and I love that they even involve parents to come out to the mat with the kids, it just makes for such a great bonding experience. My sons confidence has sky rocketed, he’s lost some weight and his attitude has improved tremendously. It’s truly been an investment for our whole family.
