We absolutely love Action Karate. From the first trial class my daughter loved it! The instructors are so amazing. They are patient, knowledgeable and caring. I am proud to say we are part of the Action Karate Family! I can’t wait to see her grow and achieve her goals with this studio.

Today was Ronny's first beginner Karate Lesson. It was a free class to the community. What 2 great instructors who showed him listening skills, eye contact, and most importantly having respect with Yes Sir, and Yes Ma'am. I recommend to come see what Action Karate is all about. Awesome job well done.

We had the pleasure of working with Mr Keffer during his time as an instructor at Action Karate Nazareth. Mr Keffer is a knowledgeable leader in the martial arts. He works well with students of all ages.

Mr. Keffer is a fabulous instructor. He takes time to break down the moves and theory behind them to build your training from the fundamental basics to advance moves. While I'm very excited for his next move in opening this school, I will miss having his weekly classes. If you live in or near Whitehall, please take this wonderful opportunity to train and grow at his new school.

Mr. Keffer is one of my favorite karate instructors EVER. His explanations are on point and, so many times, it’s HIS story about a self defense or technique that makes it finally stick in my brain. He’s a wonderful martial artist - his school will be amazing! Highly recommend for any age to join his establishment, but most especially adults! You will appreciate his style and motivation! ??

Mr Keffer is an amazing instructor. He is an exceptional motivator. He has taught my daughter and I so much. anyone who has him as a mentor is and will be truly successful. He always takes the time to make sure that you understand what he is teaching. He was an amazing supporter during my black testing, and never seemed annoyed when I asked a question for the millionth time before testing.

Over the past four years I have had the pleasure of both training with and learning under Mr. Keffer, who is a dedicated life long martial artist and an excellent instructor. Patient, kind, motivational, and bursting with knowledge. Under his leadership I have no doubt Action Karate Whitehall will be a tremendous success, and prove a valued, welcome addition to the Whitehall community!

Being an Accountability Partner for our Children

Most of have heard that when we are trying to achieve a goal, like losing weight or falling into a regular workout routine, it’s good to have an accountability party.

What does an accountability partner do? At the core, they keep us honest about our progress on our goals.   They stay involved and are up to date on our successes and our failures. They listen when we struggle, they help us stay on task when we get sidetracked. They don’t criticize or blame. They are supportive.

Studies have shown that people with an accountability partner are more likely to achieve their goals.

What can we do to be good partners for our children?

  1. Know what their goal is.
    1. It’s hard to know what route you should take if you don’t have a destination in mind.
    2. SMART Goals (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant & Timebound)
  2. Have some way to visually track progress.
    1. Entries on a calendar, a shared Google Doc, a checklist hanging on the fridge.
  3. Encourage them to have a routine.
    1. Committing to a schedule and reserving time in advance is a great way to make sure you have the opportunity to do what you need to do.
    2. We’ve all had that moment where it is time for bed, and someone suddenly remembers they have something they have to do for the next day, resulting in a late night scramble. Plan ahead to get the best use of your time.
  4. Stay informed.
    1. Ask questions.
    2. Check their progress.
  5. Be a role model.
    1. What you do is more important than what you say.
    2. Is there something in your life that you could have your child be your accountability party for?
