Action Karate follows a holistic approach to physical and mental well-being

Action Karate’s martial arts classes provide a great physical workout for kids but the mental health aspect should not be overlooked either. We go beyond helping your child stay fit and healthy. Instead, we also help students manage their emotions and respond effectively in challenging situations.

That’s because martial arts is more than just physical exercise. It’s a training philosophy that incorporates emotional intelligence training that ultimately results in good mental balance and emotional well-being

10/10 for my family. We first met the owner at a local block party. They donate their time quite regularly in the community. We started off with two weeks of free classes and that turned into my kids attending once a week. I cannot think the action karate family enough for welcoming us. I have a set of twins and we had tried two other activities and my kids had no real interest. Once we tried karate they seem to love it. I look forward to the future with action karate. My kids are learning very important the values as well as self-defense. I couldn't be happier. Lastly we recently had a birthday party hosted by action karate. That was very cool they were board breaking, a samurai sword cake cutting plus games. I'm so happy we decided to continue classes here

Since enrolling our son in Action Karate, we have seen such tremendous changes in his confidence and self-discipline. The instructors are so kind and patient with the kids. They support their growth and challenge them in each class. It is a wonderful opportunity for your child to exercise, have fun, and develop life long skills in a safe, welcoming, and supportive environment. :)

Adrian attended a birthday party and we signed him up to see if karate was something of interest. We haven't looked back since. It has been a great experience for him. Go Orange!

I can't recommend this studio and the owners/instructors enough. They are filled with energy, kindness, respect, love, skill, and patience. It's everything you would want for any age student.

I love how confident my son has become since he started at Action Karate Oreland! Even his teacher noticed that he was participating more in class. Mr. Sude and Ms. Genevieve are such strong role models and excellent teachers. They strive to have each child do their best and it really shows. I highly recommend them!

I am so happy my grandchildren started this program. My grandson has learned so much self control and my granddaughter has really built up her confidence. Something that is needed as she goes into middle school. After watching them train for so long, I decided to enroll myself! Thanks to Mr. Sude and Ms. Genevieve for being amazing instructors and getting the best out of their martial artists!

What can I say. This is an amazing experience we have had. So far, my son has blossomed into a gentleman and loves going here. Usually we see a drop out, or no enthusiasm when we say we are going to go to "X" when I tell him it is AK night, nothing is better than to see him light up and smile. I can't thank Mrs. Genevieve & Mr. Sude, for our journey so far. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Our son is a Ninja Shark and goes 3-4 days a week. He absolutely loves it. The Sude’s are the best. They have a lot of patience and are excellent teachers, I couldn’t ask for better karate teachers. We love being part of the Action Karate Oreland family and plan on being there in the years to come!

Mrs. Genevieve and Mr. Sude from Action Karate provided a wonderful demonstration for our second grade students. Following the presentation, they took the time to meet with each individual second grade class. The presentation was age appropriate, enjoyable and interactive. It was a pleasure to have Action Karate Oreland visit our school.

Back in the 90s my parents signed me up for Action Karate when it was still in its early stages in Warrington. Now 20 (ish) years later, my daughters are part of the shark gang 🦈🥋 They love going every week mostly because Ms. Genevieve and Mr. Sude's energy and patience is truly something to be admired! I highly recommend Action Karate (Oreland) if you want an energetic, confidence boosting, exercise for your child or yourself!
