My son has been taking classes here for over a year, and it’s been an incredibly positive experience for him. It’s boosted his confidence, instilled positive work ethic, and stresses the importance of goals and discipline. Amazing instructors and an awesome family atmosphere.

My son joined the Action Karate family less than a year ago with no prior martial arts experience, and in that short amount of time he has grown tremendously in his skills, so much so that he is already working towards his black belt! The instructors here truly care and are dedicated to helping the children reach their highest potential through discipline and hard work, while still enjoying what they do!. We couldn’t be more proud to be part of the Action family!

Action Karate Newtown has been such a positive experience for my son! We started 1 year ago and the progress my son has made in such a short time is amazing. Not only with his skill level but with his confidence!!! The entire team at Action Karate Newtown are dedicated teachers who genuinely care about the students. I especially will shout out Master Jay as he really supported our son when he was having some difficulty. He took him under his wing, gave him 1:1 classes and offered him some leadership opportunities during class. I cannot say enough about them!!! Highly recommend!!!

I highly recommend Action Karate in Newtown! My daughter is 13 and has been taking karate for a few years now. My husband and I have noticed that she is more confident, self-aware and physically fit and can certainly defend herself! Miss McKenzie and Master Jay, along with all of the instructors are top notch and truly dedicated professionals!

We absolutely love Action Karate Newtown! All of the instructors are so kind and amazing with the kids. My son has been in the Ninja Shark program since he was 3 years old. He was so shy and wouldn’t even get on the mat. The instructors took the time with him for weeks in the private lesson room, and sitting next to him on mat until he slowly built the confidence to take the class on his own. Two yearly later, he still loves going to karate every week and seeing all of the instructors who always greet him by name. 5 stars for AK Newtown! It’s such a family atmosphere.

I started my Kenpo Journey here. It is a well organized school, great people, and a good starter place for self defense and weaponry. I had nothing but a positive experience at AK Newtown!
We started Karate, because my son needed to work on crossing the mid-line. Crazy right? but it is true. Why be tortured by endless hours of therapy when you can learn it through a skill? One of the very first lessons was how to get away from a stranger. That is the type of self defense they started with. This was not fear teaching, they probably didn't even know how important some of those moves are, but the parents understood.It was mind blowing! Every child should know this, and I was sorry my older kids didn't learn this when they were little!So we got to learn how to cross the mid-line, and self defense, but we got so much more. We learned goal setting, respect for parents and siblings. We learned responsibility and how to communicate well with others. We learned to follow instructions (some of our students are 3 yrs old). We learned confidence and how to carry ourselves. We learned self control, and good listening skills. We made friends, and there is so much laughter and support! I could go on and on, but I hope you noticed I mentioned WE a lot. I joined my son on the mat soon after I saw how amazing the lessons were.They have a great schedule, so it gives us plenty of options to take classes. It also allows for the flexibility of life. I hope you will come by and join us, you won't be disappointed!

I signed my son up to start their karate class. He’s about to be 4. They told me to come on a Saturday at a certain time for a private class before they would put him into a full class. We went, the place was closed. I tried calling and texted the person who set it up…no one got back to me.

I could not recommend Action Karate Newtown more. I'd honestly give it six stars. ALL of the coaches are phenomenal. Special shout-out to Miss McKenzie, Master Jay and Mr. Kyle for making Ian's time special while he was a Ninja Shark!

Fees are slightly higher than other schools, but after researching and now experiencing the classes (as a parent), this place is worth it. All the instructors are very attentive and kids are cared for at this school.

My son came to action Karate during the pandemic lock down from another Karate establishment. We were very unhappy with the disorganization from the place we left and we’re looking for something different for my son‘s martial arts training.Action karate was the answer for us. They have a very organized system of earning belts and learning lessons. Each student is self paced and the goals are very clear for all learners.The Staff at action Karate has a lot of energy and inspires each student to succeed. While they are teaching lessons on self-control and discipline, they are not unkind or yelling at kids like the place we left did. We have recommended action Karate to a few friends and they have also been happy. My son is currently on his junior black belt journey and Is looking forward to achieving his big goal.

Karate has given my son soo much more confidence in our short 2 months. He was sooo confident for kindergarten and not afraid of anything. Before karate, he would have been very different (scared, shy). Your program teaches amazing skills to these kids and I am recommending it to everyone I know. I look at kids and say in my head “oh that kid needs karate!” You and your team of instructors are the best educators and role models I’ve seen for his age. I am extremely grateful to have found you.

My 8 year old boy has been training at Action Karate for several years and it has been an incredible experience. He learns about courage, respect, discipline, determination, resilience, focus, grit and so much more. The teachers are fabulous and they really care about the children. It has become apart of his lifestyle that he loves and will grow in this art. Action Karate Newtown is a special, warm and close knit family. We recommend Action Karate Newtown hands down without hesitation.

This place has been such a blessing to my children. Having children with special needs we had tried multiple places that claimed to be able to handle it, however never had any success. I was left with frustration and disappointment. I was reluctant at first to try another karate gym, however I'm so thankful I did. The whole experience has been so wonderful, the classes are well structured and taught appropriately. The staff has been beyond amazing in all they do to help my children gain success from the program and build confidence in themselves. I could not be happier to see my children feel so valued and cared for. I would highly without a doubt recommend this gym to anyone,especially those with children with special needs.

My son started attending class there at age 4. He he now been there for the past 5 years and will be testing for his junior black belt. The instructors there are very professional and gear all of the lessons for the appropriate age group. And they always make it fun!! When they are little, they teach basic motor skills as well as listening and following directions. They also build confidence because they encourage students to lead the class. If you are considering karate, highly recommend giving them a try.
