My daughter is a member of Action Karate . Mr. K and Mrs. G are AMAZING! They are incredibly kind and patient , they know how to connect with the children. They keep them engaged and excited about learning the next lesson/maneuver! It's incredible to watch the kids gain confidence every lesson! The instructors exemplify the values they teach. What drew us to Action Karate was the family-oriented vibe, as they truly care about both the students and families. Hanna has improved her focus, character, and confidence significantly since joining the Action Karate family, and I sincerely appreciate that. They really invest in the kids, helping them along the way to success while imparting useful life skills. As a proud parent of an Action Karate kid, I highly recommend!

My 5 year old struggles alot with his adhd and impulse control. We thought we would give this a try and see how he did. Right on the first day I knew it was the best choice. Mr. K and Mrs. G know exactly how to connect with these kids and how to let them have fun while working hard and staying focused. My older son is now a member as well. Just got their yellow belts and looking forward to working to the next one.

Joining Action Karate with Mr. & Mrs. K was like joining a family! I love that I have found something healthy my son and I can do together, in a positive atmosphere. I can’t speak highly enough about the dedication these two put into their “students” of all ages. My body is getting stronger every day and working out has never been so much fun!

My family had a great experience at Action Karate. Mr. Paul, Ms. Gina and Mr. Jack are positive and encouraging. In addition to teaching karate, they discuss things such as respect and discipline and how they can apply it to their daily lives. They host fun activities such as Glow in the Dark karate and encourage involvement in community projects such as food drives. I would highly recommend this studio. It's a great atmosphere for children and families!

My daughter was a very shy 6 year old when she began her journey at Action Karate. Over the past four months I have watched her confidence grow with each session. In addition to karate techniques my daughter has learned life lessons and leadership skills. Paul and Gina are so patient and kind. I highly recommend Action Karate River Hills.
