All reviews seem positive

Editorial review from Citysearch 2/16/2013

I don't consider Action Karate a Martial Arts school. It is expensive baby sitting. The children played dodgeball in class. How does that teach them any martial arts. It is extremely over priced with very little martial arts training offered in class. The school itself was very dingy and dirty. Don't waste your time. more

FANTASTIC for Children 8/25/2010

Bar none, this is finest experience you can provide to your children. This was the first ""extra-curricular"" experience my children had, my oldest starting at the age of 4 and the others when they were 3. We initially took for granted how phenomenally good the instructors are with the kids, until we enrolled our kids in other activities, camps, etc. and saw the difference. The instructors at Action HV (who, by the way, haven't changed in the 5 years we have been training) provide an incredibly positive experience for every kid who comes through their doors. They are passionate about the martial arts as a way of life and a way of teaching values to kids. You really won't believe it when you see 15 three-year-old kids concentrating on their class - until you see it week after week after week. They are actually completely engaged in what they are doing, and the full credit for that goes to the teachers. Obviously the way they deliver the message has changed as our kids have aged and progressed to new levels and belts here, but the message remains the same: balance (mental and physical), focus, respect, coordination, teamwork, control. It's all positive, and the kids really get it. The instructors get the kids to believe that they can meet any challenge they are given. And, with the tools they are developing here, plus a lot of hard work, they really can. Not to mention, they know their martial arts. One of the instructors was a world champion, and the Demonstration Teams (Demo Teams) consistently win top honors at competitions. We just stumbled on Action HV 5 years ago, no research, no shopping around. I'm so glad we did. I can't imagine taking my kids anywhere else. more

Awesome program! 5/31/2008

I feel obligated to send a big Kudos to the instructors at Action Karate! I had been inspired by a co-worker who got into shape by training at Action. I am so glad I started there- not only have I gotten to my ideal weight, but I'm strong and confident in my ability to defend myself. I have also learned the importance of setting goals and planning the route to reach them. I highly recommend this program. Pros: There are new classes always starting, so I trained with other ""new"" adults and felt comfortable.Also flexible schedule, classes available 5 days a week. Cons: None! more

Watch your child soar! 5/31/2008

I have done my research, now I'm watching my children reap the rewards! I love this karate school. My children have made dramatic changes in their ability to set goals and stay focused, as well as learning self-control and good sportsmanship. My oldest, who was painfully shy, does school presentations with the utmost confidence. I can't thank the instructors enough for all of their efforts and positive reinforcement. I don't have to worry about my children becoming stagnant wanting to play video games all day, they want to spend as much time as possible at Action. When you see what polite, courteous, confident well-rounded individuals the older students are, you feel great knowing your children will have positive role-models. Pros: age appropriate classes, great instructors, positive reinforcement more
