I can not recommend this school enough!! My daughter started end of April. The instructors are absolutely incredible. They have so much passion and care about each of their students. My daughter absolutely loves going to class and has built such a family within the walls. She looks forward to putting on her ghee top and bottoms and tying that belt and charging that mat ready to focus and learn. The instructors make the students feel so welcomed and so pumped to have great classes.I started during Action Karate’s Mother’s Day special where moms train free for the month of May. I was anxious and timid and didn’t feel like I belonged sharing the mat with the incredible students this school has. I was so wrong. Every single person welcomed me so warmly and has helped guide me to becoming a better martial artist. What began as a month free, has turned into a passion of something I found I absolutely love and want to continue. I never would have explored this if not for the welcoming of Action Karate, or without the confidence Mr. Wildrick, Miss Miranda, and Mr. Bittner helped me find.This school is so much more than just a karate school. It is a whole community, a family. If you are thinking of getting involved with martial arts, Action Karate is the place to go!!

My daughter recently started at Action Karate and the instructors have all been amazing with her. She is a teenager and naturally very shy but I am already seeing her coming out of her shell some when she is in class. It has already been a wonderful experience and my daughter looks forward to lessons all week.Just to expand on this review, my daughter has been here a bit longer and the other day was having a rough day. Ms. Miranda went out of her way to check on my child and I couldn’t be more pleased and grateful for the instructors.

I highly recommend Action Karate. As an adult student who has wanted to learn karate for years, Action is helping me do that. The instructors are knowledgeable and supportive. They correct mistakes with encouragement and always take the time to explain the moves clearly. Their patient approach inspires me to try harder and keep going.My health has also improved, a big bonus, boosting my confidence in sports. They offer plenty of weekly classes for kids and adults, plus on-demand. I leave class feeling excellent that I did it. Plus, the new studio space is in a great location. Five stars all the way and every day.

This 5 star review goes to every student and staff member at Action Karate! Plenty of students in each level for new students to connect with. Several class times throughout Monday-Thursday and Saturday. Students are able to feel accomplished with stripe weeks (once a month) and belt promotion (every 3 months) and not held back by others which may be hard to find in other sports. Each week has a new lesson and each month has a new “season” (some seasons include: habits, confidence, adaptability) for students to grow as people, not just martial artists. I have spent 16 years practicing martial arts and have never seen this much care and commitment to students. Working at Action provides plenty of room for growth and learning. Mr Bittner has been a phenomenal mentor for me as I grow as an instructor and Miss Miranda is always there to support and encourage me. Action is life changing for all who are a part of it. Thank you Action Karate Phillipsburg!

Action Karate is a great learning environment for all ages. My kids love going to Karate and they are learning life lessons throughout. The instructors here make it all about family and truly do care about there students learning the art of karate and growing as human beings.

We absolutely love action Karate! We started our son off with one-one lessons until he was ready for the ninja class. He is now in the ninja class, and the class teaches great life lesson skills! We’ve seen his confidence, patience, and understanding improve immensely. We believe that action karate and their program has played a great role in helping these skills flourish! I would definitely recommend to all ages and skill levels!

My son has been going to Action Karate for almost a year and he loves it. When he first sign up he was not confident but as time went on he grew his confidence so much. His form and attention span grew as well. The instructors are amazing. They work very well with the children. They correct them on everything even work them out and prepare them for competition. Action Karate is the best place to be. Ms. Miranda is excellent with communication, quick with answering questions and very welcoming. P.S. they have parent night out where you drop the kids off for a couple hours, which is great for a date night.

My daughter recently started classes at Action Karate Phillipsburg and I have to say, they are nothing short of amazing. Miranda was so patient teaching my daughter the basic moves, skills and language my daughter was expected to use during class. Mr. Bittner teaches the kids karate skills and life skills. Mr. Bittner is patient, firm, and truly makes the kids feel comfortable. My daughter loves going to class.

My 3 children have been at Action Karate Nazareth for 8 years. My two daughters have both earned their 1st degree black belts and my son will be testing for his 1st degree in December. The life lessons, skills, and self defense they all learned have been so valuable and can be applied through so many paths in life. We love all our Action Karate instructors! They are amazing! Asah!!
