Fantastic place. The instructors and their helpers do a fantastic job. Most children are apprehensive at first about going out on the mats with the class. The instructors take them out and stay by them until they are comfortable. They are very encouraging and have a new positive message every week that these build upon while teaching karate skills. I have seen a lot of shy children, including my son, grow and mature with the confidence and skills they learn. Want your child learning about respect and caring, while also learning them self-defense (anti-bullying) and confidence?

Our son Nate was a shy student when he first began his karate journey, but under the direction of the Action Karate Instructors, Nate has opened up and now regularly participates in class. Not only has Nate blossomed at Action Karate, he has also become more confident within his School environment. The Instructors are so helpful and encouraging! They always find the time to acknowledge all students during class that do a great job!

My name is Melissa Schlemmer and I began my journey to Black Belt almost 3 years ago. When I first started attending classes at Action Karate in Feasterville, my daughters were already attending classes there and they were on their own journey to achieve their Junior Black Belts. I knew a few of the parents who were attending the adult classes and I figured why not give it a shot for myself. As the first few weeks of attending classes had started to get under way, I started to wonder what the heck had I gotten myself into. I couldn’t do any sit ups without holding onto my legs to help me up, I could barely do push ups and my body hurt in places that I never even knew I could hurt. But as the weeks, months and then years passed I found that as I got stronger, I became more determined than ever to see this through until Black Belt. I’m not even sure when exactly it was that it hit me because all along as I received each of my under belts I used to say, yellow is the new black or blue is the new black at each promotion because even though I was really starting to enjoy taking classes and was proud of my accomplishments I guess I just didn’t think at the time that I was going to get to Black Belt. But somewhere along the way I became determined to prove to myself that I could and I would get my Black Belt and that for the first time in my life I wouldn’t give up on a goal that I set for myself. I wanted to set an example for my girls that hard work does pay off and even though the journey may not always be easy, if you believe you can do something and put your mind to it, put in the hard work and never give up, then those goals will be achieved. Those goals may not be achieved overnight but they will be achieved. And believe me when I say it wasn’t always easy. I’ve had my ups and downs along the way, whether it was juggling my girls other after school activities and homework plus their own classes at Action or just when you think you’ve got everything figured out and life throws you a major curve ball and you’ve got to pull it together emotionally, but every week I put on my Gi, bowed onto the mat and put in the work to get to this point I’m at today. I can honestly say that I’m proud of myself, that I made this happen for myself and in a few weeks when I’m testing for my 1st degree Black Belt, and my muscles are screaming at me and I have sweat dripping down my back, I’ll know that I gave it my all and proved to myself that giving up was no longer an option, so when my Black Belt gets handed to me at the end of the day, I’ll know that I EARNED IT!

My name is Aidan Davis. I watched my brother Drew and my sister Ryann get their Black Belts. I was so proud of them and wanted to be like them. There were times when I wanted to quit but my mom and Miss Rebecca helped me and now I'm getting ready to test. ACTION has taught me a lo of things like self control and confidence. I'm a better student in school because of this.

This is my daughter Ella's (age 11) experience with Action Karate- " I started karate when I was in 3rd grade because I was dealing with bullies in school and wanted to learn how to stand up for myself. I was very nervous when I started, and struggled to learn the moves and remember them every week. I found the workouts to be challenging, and wasn't sure I wanted to continue, but the instructors were a lot of fun and made it fun to come every week, so I decided that I wanted to continue and joined the black belt leadership. I worked hard, and all of a sudden the moves and workouts got easier and easier for me. I started to spar, then participated in my first tournament, and knew that I was going to work as hard as I could to earn my black belt. I made the demo team, and am constantly facing and overcoming new challenges frequently. I am more confident as I am able to overcome these challenges, and have had many personal triumphs as I have grown in my karate practice. My biggest triumph will be the challenge of earning my black belt, and continuing my training even afterwards. I am so happy I decided not to quit when things were hard, and I showed myself I could do it with hard work."

My name is Devika Diwan and I began my martial arts training almost three years ago. Having never been a particularly athletic person, karate was something that I never expected myself to do. But when I first started, I thought of it as a fun way for me to stay active. The first class I went to was probably one of the most challenging for me. When I had come home that night, I could only think about how much my body hurt and how much more it would hurt the next day. Initially, I felt defeated, but that feeling gave me the motivation I needed to decide to go back to class again because I knew that if I wanted to get better, I couldn’t quit. As time went on, I became stronger, and each Promotion Night felt less challenging than the last. Karate has not only improved my physical abilities, but it has also helped me come out of my shell. I have always been a quiet and reserved person, and talking in front of a group of people was something I had always had a lot of trouble with. But by coming to class and meeting so many people that shared this interest with me, I started to open up to everyone around me a lot more. One Black Belt in particular has told me numerous times about how much more open I have become. When I first started, I rarely spoke to anyone and kept to myself most of the time, but now, I walk into class smiling and greeting everyone I know. Martial Arts gave me the self-confidence I needed to believe in myself, and become more outgoing. Earning a new belt every three months gave me the determination I needed to know that quitting was not an option. I think the goal of achieving my Black Belt had always been sitting in the back of my mind since I first started, but it didn’t really surface until I earned my blue belt and realized that I was already almost half way there. In these weeks of preparation, I have come to realize how much work I have put into this, memorizing katas and self-defense moves and making it to class, while juggling karate with school and other activities. This journey was in no way an easy one, but I am proud of myself for not giving up on this goal, despite how difficult it has been at times. Now that I am only a few weeks away from testing for my 1st degree Black Belt, I am proud of myself for reaching this point and I know that I am prepared for this next big step in my martial arts career, no matter how challenging it may be.

My journey to Black Belt began with my son, Trae, repeatedly and persistently asking his father and me to begin martial arts training. After some consideration and recommendations from the Bell Family, we decided to enroll the kids at Action Karate. About a week or so in, my husband, Charles, insisted we should join as well. I was more than skeptical but obliged. Once we said our words and earned our white belts, I was intrigued. I enjoyed the fitness regimen especially experiencing it with not only my family, but other adults that had interesting stories and backgrounds and some even had physical limitations or obstacles to overcome. Time went by, we promoted belt after belt. I enjoyed feeling stronger and more equipped to defend myself although hoping it would never be necessary. One class, a recently earned Senior Black Belt told his journey to Black Belt story. It was then that I decided that if he and many others could do it, so could I! I set a long-term goal to eventually test for Senior Black Belt. The journey was not without many obstacles. I tore a joint in my back which was extremely painful. I was to refrain from all exercise per doctor’s orders and required to wear a back brace for months. I was able to attend training sessions to learn the defense moves and not fall behind. It was painful to return to exercise even once cleared, but I needed to persevere if I wanted to obtain my ultimate goal. Utilizing the self-discipline and focus skills learned at Action I managed to get back on track with my training and workout routine. Another significant obstacle I faced was after undergoing oral surgery, I was in extreme pain for weeks and again restricted to exercise as per doctor’s orders to allow operated area to heal. I had to settle for visualizing the self-defense moves and kata’s until I could take class again and resume exercising. Perhaps my biggest obstacle was overcoming the fear and self-doubt of my inability to accomplish many physical requirements. I’ve never participated in team sports or been particularly athletic but Action and the Action family gave me confidence I needed to accomplish and improve everything from my kicks and stances to my push-ups and burpees. Now that the ultimate goal is within reach, I have to thank my husband for all of his help with training and moral support, my kids for their encouragement and motivation, Action and its instructors for devoting time and energy to teaching and improving my martial arts skills and most of all myself, for maintaining the self-discipline, focus and concentration to achieve my ultimate goal of becoming a Senior Black Belt of Martial Arts.
