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!
