Review from the 2022 Party SurveyFun ! Kids had a great time. But the staff were young and not super experienced and as parents I did need to help manage the kids when one kid was playing and got abit carried away . Granted it is tough to manage a party of 15 high energy excited kids
Review from the 2022 Summer Camp SurveyLocation: 5th Avenue/14th Street Park Slope How old was your child when they attended camp this summer? 10 Review: This was my daughter's first introduction to karate. She really enjoyed working with the senseis, and the week long camp did really spark her interest in pursuing regular karate classes. However, I found communication with the camp itself challenging. Registration wasn't confirmed for months, a week or two before camp began, and payment need to be made in cash only. Also, my daughter's camp week occurred during a brutal heatwave and the campers were left in the playground for 2 hours near midday during a 6 hour camp. The equipment was too hot to use and my daughter became overheated.
ISO: Boxing / Kickboxing ClassesTry Amerikick on 14th St/5th Ave. They have Muai Thai classes for adults/teens that are basically kick boxing… great place ! Also great karate classes that kids love.
Amerikick summer camp (or similar) -- seeking reviewsMy 4.5 yr old has been eager to take Karate and we just signed up for the 3-class/$19.95 intro special at Amerikick. His first 2 classes were today and we were all beyond delighted with them. (Note the the 15 min, 1:1 introductory course with a Sensei to learn basic moves counts as 1 of the 3 classes, and worth it in my opinion). Right afterward, he joined a 30-min group class in his age group. Both parents were allowed to watch and everyone was very friendly, professional and communicative. I’m surprised you’re not getting an email response—from the moment we signed up/paid for the offer we’ve been getting texts and emails from Sensei Alex (or a very proactive marketing engagement system!) to schedule the first class, and several more to get feedback on how it went. They also have an app that makes checking in and scheduling future classes a bit easier. I would just call directly and ask for Ann—she was incredibly helpful to us. Anyway, my kid LOVED it and though he struggles to stay tuned in and follow instructions for very long in most settings, he was totally into both classes. So, it’s just one day, and a younger kid, but based off of that small but positive experience, I’m def signing up for more and am going to try to enroll him in the camp later this summer. The special also includes the karate uniform and first belt, which is pretty cool.
Anyone done Champions Martial arts camp- south slopeMy daughter has been going to Amerikick karate, etc classes since she was 3 yrs old (she’s now 10). We are very happy there. I just wanted to chime in because Amerikick just started doing their classes outside. The classes are run behind JJ Byrne playground on 5th Ave and 4th St. I have no experience with these particular classes because my daughter does their zoom classes online now, but just wanted to let you know that they exist.
Review from the 2019 Summer Camp SurveyMy son had an OK time here, but it wasn't a great fit. I sent him to AK specifically because I'd heard it was good for ADHD/special needs kids, and they advertise as teaching discipline and anti-bullying and no screens, but that was not our experience. The kids are in one large group ages 5-12, so there was just too much going on for him and the physicality expected of him seemed excessive (25 burpees?!). It seemed like there was a core group of kids who took classes regularly and they dominated the group, which didn't seem very open for new kids with zero experience and my son was picked on to the point of tears, especially on days they went to the playground sprinklers. But where they really lost me was with all these hidden costs on top of tuition: extra $100 for karate uniform that he barely wore, one T-shirt he had to wear every day, and a cheap backpack PLUS an additional $20 each week for the field trips (which were geared for the older kids and not fun for him). Why not just build those costs into the price of tuition? It was not clear when registering that there would be extra costs, making this overall NOT an affordable camp. We will not be going back next year, and I would not recommend it for anyone under 9 years old. What would you change? : organization and communication (misplaced paperwork, I didn't receive multiple emails, no invoices, etc.), and being up-front about ALL of the costs required. As well having separate age groups, 5-8 and 9-12 or something, would make the tasks and expectations more age appropriate.
Sports programs for non sporty kidsMy kids go to Amerikick in Park Slope and they love it. They are open to all levels and are very encouraging. It definitely makes them feel empowered and builds confidence as they get better at different tricks.
Review from Kids Birthday and Bar/Bat Mitzvah Party Survey - 2016Age of child: 4 Venue Review: The place was great. The karate area is big. There was ample room for all the parents and to serve snacks, pizza and cake. The kids had an amazing time and the parents even got in some fun with some dodge ball at the end of the party.
Re: [PSP] ISO mini-campCheck out Amerikick - it is pretty awesome!
Re: [PSP] Martial Arts ClassI highly highly recommend Amerikick on 14th and 5th ave. The senseis are amazing and loving role models and teachers. We absolute love it! (Feb 2014)
Recommend(2012 Birthday Party Survey)
(no subject)I very highly recommend Amerikick on 5th Avenue. Sensei Alex and his talented crew of instructors do a wonderful job of helping kids learn karate skills, discipline, and personal responsibility.
(no subject)My son is nine years old had tried soccer, basketball, baseball swimming and gymnastics but he could not find a sport he loved until we went to Amerikick. He insisted on signing up after his first class with Sensei Kiara and his experience there has been life changing for him and for our family. Amerikick is more than just a Karate school, it's a community and everyone from the receptionist to the Senseis to the other students and families have been incredibly warm and welcoming to us. In every class they teach so much more than just Karate moves. They talk about important values like respect and focus and they reward students for good grades and effort. They also offer all kinds of activities above and beyond the classes: movie nights and sleepovers and "board breaking" fundraisers for Japan relief efforts to name a few. (He broke three boards!) My son is thrilled to be a part of the group there and we are thrilled that he has found a sport and a community that is helping shape him, body and soul. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
Birthday Party Survey 2010Age of Child: 5 Reason for Choice: of special interest to my child, ease of planning. Likes: The party was fun and super easy. It included a full karate lesson that was around 45 minutes long, that as well as a show that was very entertaining. Pizza for the children, beverages, and paper goods are also included in the price. I think they will even provide invitations if you want them. All you need to do is show up and bring the cake. We arrived 15 minutes beforehand to set up additional snacks and drinks, and also added to the pizza order for the grown-ups. A great time was had by all. Not included in the Party Package: Party bags, cake, Cost Per Child: $11-$15 DO you recommend? (Choices: Highly/Recommend/DoNot) Highly recommend
