Action Karate 🥋 is such a great atmosphere for learning. Mr. Manny has great patience. My boys have been enjoying their lessons!! They have made so much improvement with the extra support of Mr Brandon. They also have enjoyed all of the extra activities and functions they offer. Ms Lisa has been so helpful and worked with us on the financial end as well, she also is always available to answer questions. We are happy we made the choice to join the Action Karate family. (ASAH)

We signed up our son a month ago and we are already seeing the benefits of karate, especially at Action Karate with Mr. Manny and Miss Lisa! They both have made our family feel so welcome to the school. We absolutely recommend Action Karate!

We found action karate online and went for a free trial, then signed up that day because of a ‘sign on the spot’ deal. After the initial deal, the price went up, I didn’t realize and it turned out to be more expensive that I’d like to pay, especially compared to other places, but Ms.Lisa and Mr. Manny are great with my son, helping him stay focused on the mat. My son has enjoyed the time when on the mat and felt proud when earning a belt and showing his skills. I do wish they did shorter sessions, 6 months is a long time for an activity for a 3/4 year old kid, maybe offering 6 or 8 week sessions would have been more ideal.

We first discovered Action Karate at a local event. They were kind and got our kids motivated very quickly. Their structure promotes discipline, routine, and consistency.I started training in the adult classes as well. It is rigorous and gets better use out of the hour than any gym would.Definitely recommend to anyone trying to get in shape, learn discipline, or tiring out the kids.

From the very first day, I knew I would love this place. All of the instructors make sure to emphasize focus, attention and maintaining discipline. Not only that, but they also make sure to keep it fun with other activities that the whole family can participate in as well. When my son loses his focus, they quickly and respectfully get him back on track. I would definitely recommend this karate school to anyone looking to add some discipline and good life lessons to their kids' lives. Looking forward to seeing my son grow in confidence and discipline with them.

When we started at Action Karate in November it was just to get my son out of his room and off the gaming system. His grades are excellent in school and he’s managed to get his orange belt. I see he’s enjoying his sessions and being really social with his fellow classmates.

I High recommend Action Karate Voorhees to all families! Miss.Lisa, and Mr.Manny are exceptional with the kid, and help support the children in areas where they are struggling in, especially when it comes to discipline, focus, and self confidence. All 3 of my kids, and husband are in karate and are always looking forward to every single class. Miss Lisa, and Mr.Manny are also very supportive to families and are great with communication, and understanding. You won’t regret it!!

My kids have been in karate action for a little over a month. They love it here. I would recommend this place to any one. You will love it once you start I have seen it with my kids. It’s really good exercise discipline and builds your confidence. Miss Lissa has been so welcoming since the day my family has started. Mr.Manny is a great instructor and so patient with all ages. Mr.Brandon has been wonderful with my son when he first started and did a private lesson with him. He also helps with Mr.Manny in classes as well. My kids love it here. We will be staying here for a long time.

I am thoroughly impressed with our experience at Action Karate since my son started several months ago. Mr Manny and Ms Lisa are always open and transparent with objectives, professional, and consistent with the children. When we initially signed up for this, I felt it was going to be just another “activity” my son wanted to do, but it’s so much more. The pride he displays on his face when he is praised by the instructors or achieves new milestones is priceless. But I also appreciate how they set the expectation of good behavior and performance, and do not waiver from it. I’ve seen such growth in my son since we started!

My son joined action karate in December . Initially , he was hesitant. We are 4 months in and he has grown to love the classes but also the attention and support from Mr Manny and Miss Lisa. Mr Manny and Miss Lisa know how to handle with care through support and structure. Our family gives a huge thank you!

We won 3 free classes to give karate a try. I was unsure how my daughter would like it. But after the 2nd class she told me she loved it. Miss Lisa and Mr. Manny made her feel comfortable and was patient with her from the beginning. For the past couple years Gemma has struggled in school with her confidence, attention, and education. We have had help from her teachers but we felt something was missing. After only a couple months of doing karate her teachers told me they saw a difference in her. She was more confident in herself and kept trying at the hard problems. Her attention in class was more under control. And they told me they honestly believed the karate has helped her. She even tried her first tournament and won 2nd place from all her hard work. Seeing her face light up with happiness and Mr. Manny and Miss Lisa cheering her on, she came over to me and finally said the words I prayed for her to say one day, “mom I am proud of myself”. This place has helped our daughter in many ways. The instructors are amazing and even the families that attend have been great with her. She has made new friends and continues to believe in herself. A parent can’t ask for anything better than that!

We entered a raffle won 2 free weeks worth of classes for our daughter. We didn’t think she would like it but thought we would try it because Karate is all about self discipline, structure, and self confidence and that’s what we want for our child. Boy was i wrong! Mr Manny and Miss Lisa make class fun! It’s all she could (and still does) talk about! She loves coming to class and meeting new friends and she even invited her friends to come and they also joined class with her. Both instructors are amazing and are always there to help with anything. Both instructors care about every child that steps on the mat. Always available to talk about progress and to help wherever they are needed. Not to mention, they are all about getting the parents involved. Anytime someone asks me what activities my child does i recommend Action Karate!

Our son Frankie is very shy. Since September he has come such a long way breaking out of his shell. He is always ready for the next move. He is starting to volunteer in class. We couldn’t thank Mr. Manny and Miss Lisa enough for not just in the dojo but it shows when he is in school also. Also I cannot thank them enough with myself starting classes as I break out of my comfort zone and hit the mat with 100% every time. They are truly incredible people. Thank you!

Miss Kelly and Mr. Keane are amazing! The classes were engaging and fun and both instructors offered encouragement to our daughter throughout her classes. We loved that a positive attitude, respect, and team building skills were emphasized. This is a great place for kids due to the excellent instructors and the values they convey.

I don't write reviews often, but I felt that this one needed to be shared. My story begins over at once upon a child in Moorestown, NJ. My son and I were going to purchase some clothes and saw a man standing outside the store with a spinning wheel. We stopped and he introduced himself and said he was from Action Karate. My son has never shown an interesting karate but he has experience in several other sports and activities.The gentleman asked us to spin the wheel and my son won 2 weeks free of karate class. We went home that day and I completely forgot about it. About a week and a half later I was speaking to my mom, and mentioned that I'd like to get him in to try the class.Our first visit, was not a good one. My son was belligerent to Miss Lisa, he was not respectful, he was unwilling to try and participate, and truthfully I was utterly embarrassed. Miss Lisa took me aside and said he needs to be here. She said sometimes it's very tough but you need to be the one to make him come to class and not allow him to quit.I agreed that I would push him and bring him for at least the first 2 weeks. It was tough. My son did not want to go, he would cry and tell me if he just never spun that wheel his life would be better and going on and on and on. Keep in mind this child is seven lol.After the first 2 weeks, even though he was still a little resistant, I decided to sign him up and make the commitment. After a few more weeks, he started to fall into line, became much more respectful, increased his focus, increase his attentiveness, increasing his grit and perseverance, and his overall mental and physical health.We started his classes at the end of August, and by November he was promoted to yellow belt. Just recently, he was invited to be a part of the Black belt leadership program to assist other students with their form during combinations and exercises. This added responsibility has brought great joy and excitement to my son.We have also seen huge positive changes in him at home and in school. He's been participating more, listening and focusing better, persevering through problems that he has difficulty with and also even helping his peers in areas that they struggle.For me and my son, this is been a life-changing experience. This is not just a sport or an activity. This is a lifestyle. I can't wait to see my son continue to progress at this wonderful facility.Miss Lisa and Mr. Manny are absolutely phenomenal with the children, the classes are thorough and challenging for everyone. They are open to feedback constantly, and are always willing to make changes as needed to improve the program for the children.I think this will be one of the best decisions I've ever made for my son. I also think this will end up being one of his largest accomplishments in life. He is committed to getting his black belt. He is committed to karate. He is committed to this lifestyle.I couldn't imagine anything better!Thank you, MISS LISA, MR. MANNY AND ACTION KARATE FOR CHANGING OUR LIVES IN SUCH A POSITIVE WAY!GIVE IT A TRY, YOU WONT REGRET IT!ACTION KARATE VOORHEES, NJ

I was not very familiar with martial arts, but the teachers at action karate came to my daughter’s preschool and she loved the experience and asked to try it. From the very beginning, Miss Lisa and Mr Manny have been so patient, kind, and supportive. Not only are they wonderful teachers, but it’s very obvious that they are also fantastic people who truly care. My daughter can be rather unsure of herself when in unfamiliar situations, but she leaves karate every time telling me how proud that she is of herself for going out of her comfort zone. Action Karate has really helped my daughter hone in on her grit, listening skills, and ability to follow rules and I am so grateful that we gave it a chance!
