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!

Your New Family Activity: Martial Arts

March is Family Month at Action Karate, and it’s the ideal time to talk about how to find family activities. If you have kids of different ages, then you know how challenging it can be to find things to do as a group. What excites your 10-year-old daughter is likely to bore your 7-year-old son – and vice versa.

There’s one exception that we know of – and that’s taking martial arts classes! Studying the martial arts is fun for people of all ages. It’s a great way to learn something new, get in shape, and discover common ground with the people who matter most to you. Here are some of the best reasons to study martial arts as a family.

#1: Making Exercise a Priority is Good for Everyone

People with kids sometimes struggle to make time in their busy schedules for exercise. And, a lot of kids would be content to spend their days sitting in front of a video game or television. The solution? Signing the whole family up to study martial arts! As parents, you’ll be setting a good example by practicing what you preach about exercise. Kids will have a chance to burn off some of the excess energy they have, and the whole family can improve their health by getting regular workouts.

#2: Finding Common Ground Will Bring You Closer

When you do things together as a family, you build strong bonds that bring you closer. Even though you and your kids will be in separate classes, we think martial arts still qualifies as a group activity because you’ll all be pursuing similar goals.

In your free time, you’ll be able to talk about what you’ve learned. You may decide to practice together as a family – and you can attend competitions or go see the latest martial arts movie together. These things can all help you find common ground with one another.

#3: Learning the Five Tenets Improves Interpersonal Relationships

The five tenets of martial arts are the core of what you’ll learn in class – and they go far beyond the physical movements you’ll be working to master. In fact, practicing self-control, courtesy, and persistence will help you in every area of your life.

Families who study martial arts together find that their ability to focus on what’s important improves as a result. You’ll all learn to be aware of each other’s needs and to respect one another. Those are important lessons for kids, siblings, and parents.

#4: Studying Martial Arts is Fun

Anything you’re going to do as a family should be fun – and martial arts classes are! A good martial arts class is a social event combined with a great workout. You’ll get a boost of feelgood hormones after class and the whole family will be smiling.

Kids who might balk at doing a “boring” family activity will look forward to learning how to execute perfects kicks and punches or break a board with their fist. You won’t have to worry about whether the whole family will enjoy studying martial arts – they will!

Conclusion

Studying martial arts as a family can help you come together across the generations – and it’s a great way to carve some family time out of your busy lives.
