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."

This is my daughter Madeleine's story (age 9 1/2) of her journey to her Junior Black Belt...... First I was begging my mom to get me in karate. Then three months later she found Action Karate Parkwood. I started off very excited and then decided after a few months to join the Black Belt Track and work towards my Junior Black Belt. I also started sparring but lost interest after I was hit in the mouth on two occasions. Around January 2015, after 2 ½ years, I wanted to stop karate. I felt it did not seem fun anymore. I talked to my Aunt and Uncle who had recently joined Action Karate Feasterville. They encouraged me to come back and finish out my commitment. I then talked to Mr. B at the Memorial Day Parade 2015 and he also encouraged me to return and suggested switching to the Feasterville site to be with my Aunt, Uncle and cousins. At this time, I was a brown belt. After not going to classes for 6 months, I decided to attend classes and continue my Journey to Jr. Black Belt. At first it was hard because I still didn’t want to do it but I started getting it and I was doing good so I was liking it. Now I’m trying and practicing it and now I’m excited to get my black belt and I’m can’t wait to say that I got my black belt. I am especially proud to go for my Black Belt with my Cousins and Aunt and Uncle.

Being a member of Action Karate, whether it is your child, or you, gives the participant an opportunity to exercise their body and brain. The thought processes taught are some of the most important lessons one can learn in life, and the physical fitness and martial arts aspect is also excellent. The other great thing about Action is the flexible schedule. Classes are offered all week long, and although you need to attend two, not being tied down to one night is really awesome. Well done Action. Black belt journey - Trying to be a good parent often involves finding what activities your child likes to do, wants to do, and figuring out which ones he or she will be successful at. As a dad who is involved in music, swimming, and Irish culture, it seemed only fitting that my daughter would do activities that revolve around those activities. Hailey took swim lessons, piano lessons, Irish dance lessons, and of course played the obligatory T Ball. A few summers ago, after watching many episodes of old and new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, she asked when she would start taking Karate lessons. This took us a bit by surprise since it was out of nowhere and we had never suggested it. We shook our head yes, and then figured we would need to figure this out. Since the Action shark is everywhere, it seemed only fitting to pick the biggest school in the area. After watching Hailey participate, she asked when I was going to start taking class. Since I noticed that I had not been working out as much as possible, and I hated being called Hailey's dad, and wanted a real name, I began training. The past three years have been amazing. I have not only incorporated great workouts into my weekly routine, but I have learned a ton of self defense techniques, weekly lessons, Katas, had great workouts and met a great group of friends. The camaraderie in the adult class is awesome. We are all equal on the mat in our black gis, and various color belts. We don't know what careers people have, how much money they make, or what their philosophies of life are. What we do know is that we are all in this together, we are learning the same lessons of the week, and we all work hard to get ourselves and our kids to karate, and still remember whatever this week's self defense technique is. To look back and see how far we have come, and now to see Hailey as a ten year old and my son Jack as a 5 year old doing techniques that I didn't know three years ago is amazing. Now I look forward to giving back to the other new students as the blackbelts gave back to us.

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 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.

this is my sons (ryan sweeney) story about action karate Feasterville. I started at action karate Feasterville when I was 7. I remember when I was a white belt I found everything to be new and exciting. I liked that they partnered us up and made the work fun. I found action karate to be beneficial in many ways. First it really helped me with discipline. I remember I was goofing off in my first couple of classes. Miss Jackie would not tolerate it. She told me I had to get out of class if I would not be quiet and listen. I did not want to leave class so I decided to stop goofing off and to start listening. I also learned to focus a lot better because we were constantly learning new moves, katas, and exercises. So if you did not focus you could not keep up. I also learned to get my anger out when something happened. There was many times I wanted to quit because the work got really hard. My parents and instructors helped me to keep going. Action karate helped me go from a wimp to a hulk. I had difficulties doing push ups and sit ups in the beginning but I am a lot stronger now from constantly doing them. I’m training for my junior black belt now and I find it to be the hardest thing I ever done in my life. The excessives every night is very hard especially when your muscles are hurting from the day before. I’m stressed out for test day because there are so many katas to remember. during practices I freeze up because it’s very hard to remember them all. The instructors have become a lot more strict during our black belt training. If your form is not perfect they make you do it again. I’m also proud of myself because I’m keeping up with all the hard work. I’m getting a lot stronger now and I know I will get my black belt soon and all the hard work will pay off.
