Action Karate Royersford is Amazing! My son is about to turn 5 and has joined about 2.5 months ago! He has learned so much and did his first Tournament this past weekend which the instructors helped him prepare for it. He has so much confidence because of being apart of this Karate family!

My 11 year son has been apart of the AKR family for a year and a half and it has been a great experience. Not only do they teach kicking, self-defense, cross-jabs, and all the cool karate moves, but they teach valuable life lessons like discipline and respect. Every chance I get with my son, I remind him about the things he’s learning in karate and relate them to real life and it really clicks for him.Miss Shannon, Miss Devon, and all the instructors have a true passion for this business and the students they teach and I’m grateful for them. They work with your personal schedule, even when you think you need to give up, they are encouraging and understanding beyond measure. Thank you so much to the AKR family for all that you do!

Action Karate has been really great for my son. He often struggles to focus and can be very sensitive to criticism. The instructors are very patient and respectful of the students and create a safe environment for them to make mistakes. The classes focus on both martial arts skills as well as self-control, persistence and overcoming challenges. In the seven months we have been attending the school my son has grown more confident, has developed a higher tolerance for frustration, and developed more self control. Miss Shannon worked with me to help hold him to the behavioral expectations both inside and outside of class. I strongly recommend this program for all children interested in Martial Arts.

My daughter transferred here from another AK school she had attended for several years when we moved. She was nervous and shy. Ms. Shannon, her team, and the other students welcomed Emma and made her feel like she’d been there for years. It’s such a positive environment and has built such confidence in my daughter. There’s many class times offered for flexibility and busy families. So happy to have joined Royersford!

I have nothing less than an amazing experience with action karate! I would give them 10 stars if I could. My son has severe autism/with a communication disorder and his instructor/owner has gone above and beyond to give him as much personalized instruction as he needs to learn! He has made so much progress with the support and consideration to his needs it’s incredible! They will always be my first choice. They make you feel like family and teach so many good skills and ethics. I cannot wait to have all of my children learn from the Action Karate family. They are the absolute best!!!!!

Action Karate has been great for my 9 year old daughter. The instructors take their time to work with her despite her overwhelming shyness, and they have coaxed her into practicing with other students and have given her confidence in her abilities. Ms. Devin and Ms. Shannon are always available to help and super responsive, and also very flexible with the class schedules!

I don’t have the words to truly express my gratitude for the instructors at Action Karate Royersford, yet All the instructors have shown and helped my daughter become more confident in herself and her abilities in less than 2 months of participating. As a minority my daughter expresses her gratitude and appreciation for the support and friendships she is fostering in this environment. She feels safe, seen, and supported in every class. She attends 5 out of 6 classes a week. So the proof is in the pudding. Thank you Action Karate Instructors for all of your dedication and hard work with the children. Your work and passion does not go unnoticed.

Please be aware that when you sign up your child for karate and if they can’t go anymore, even if it was due to dire circumstances which they knew about when you signed up, you will be charged entire month of payment no matter what! They will scam you out of $200 plus. Be very cautious! Think twice before signing your kid up and losing out on money

Action Karate Royersford is everything you could hope for and SO MUCH MORE! Ms. Shannon and Ms Devin are one of a kind. Their passion, skillset, and dedication for martial arts, ability to teach all skillset levels, and love for their students and families make them an incredible dynamic duo. The all-inclusive supportive environment is beyond inspirational and within minutes you feel right at home.A few of the parenting benefits include: flexible schedule - making it helpful when juggling multiple activities, communication that is clear, timely, and consistent - always keeping you up to date, and leadership development offered at such a young age which is remarkable.Your personal growth including discipline, confidence, respect, courage, self defense, full body work-out, core strengthening, and leadership are only a FEW of the life changing skills and values you develop on your journey. Skills that you can apply to any aspect of your life, not just martial arts.As a woman and full-time working Mother of two kids its been one of the best decisions our family made to enroll in this school. Not only are we in awe with our children's personal growth mentally, physically, and emotionally, but also with the incredible bond they have with their instructors. I have been so impressed and inspired by this school that I too have joined and began taking adult classes and love it!To say we are grateful for Action Karate Royersford, Ms. Devin, and Ms. Shannon, is a severe understatement. These women are the epitome of powerhouse leadership and we are honored to be mentored by them on our journey to black belt (and beyond).The Action Karate community is a huge family, one that I assure you would enjoy being a part of! If you're on the fence, stop in, say hi, and give it a try - you will NOT be disappointed!

I am not sure if I can truly express in words how amazing this place is! Our son saw the Action Shark next door to his swimming lessons and was immediately intrigued! I reached out and they were quick to respond to schedule us for our first private lesson. It was just supposed to be for my son, but my daughter tagged along….they both LOVED it and we signed them both up! Fast forward a few months, the kids have learned so much, their confidence has increased, they want to go literally every day, and my husband and I have both joined as well and are loving the adult classes. The family and the community spirit is so fun! The instructors are amazing and completely dedicated to the school! We LOVE Action Karate!!!

Hands down my favorite place to learn a new style of martial arts. I have had some prior experience and wow 👌. You feel relaxed and just a positive energy walking in. I feel like I have learned quite a bit in my short time being there so far. And that's due to the instructors giving the time to help each individual in class improve on form and technique. It's also a excellent place to bring the whole family to train and learn the art. I hope I continue to improve and obtain a bucketlist goal of getting my blackbelt through Action Karate!!!

From day one when my daughter walked into Action Karate she fell in love with it. She started off her training just Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Now she only misses one class a week and Wednesday does 2 classes in one day. She became part of the black belt leadership, she loves volunteering to help with any and everything possible when it comes to her Action Karate family. She came a very long way in the short amount of time she has been their. Even the difference in her all around attitude has changed for the better and I couldn’t thank Ms. Shannon and Ms. Devin for all they do at Action karate. Now my second daughter who trains at action karate has a few learning and developmental delays and Ms. Shannon and Ms. Devin worked with her one on one when needed they are patient with her and treat her no different then any other student training. I wouldn’t choose any other school for my girls to train in. Action Karate is our home away from home and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Great experience with Action Karate Collegeville for my 7 yr old. Ms. Devin & Ms. Shannon took extra time with my son who was nervous getting started. It's been great seeing him grow more confident with each class. This is a great place for all kids, and glad to have them in our community!!

I have seen such a difference in my son since he started karate classes with Action Karate Collegeville. My shy, never look you in the eye kid is starting to speak up and even volunteer to lead in class. He’s come so far in such a few short months. He is building confidence, gaining valuable skills, and most importantly having fun! He’s been having such a wonderful time that his little brother decided he needed to join him and take classes too! The teachers are beyond wonderful. They are warm, motivating, skilled, and really get down to the kids level. You can tell that they are really passionate about what they do and it truly shows in the way their students grow!

Action Karate Collegeville is amazing!! We were originally at a different AK location, but when we saw a new one was opening closer to us in Collegeville, we transferred right away. Ms. Shannon and Ms. Devin are incredible instructors/women/black belts/leaders/and entrepreneurs!! Our 6 year old daughter and 9 year old son have been thriving in the classes, and we've since enrolled them in the blackbelt leadership program. My husband and I even enrolled ourselves in the adult program, which can be challenging but rewarding, because the family that kicks together, sticks together!!
