This karate academy is excellent. The sensei's were tough but fun. It boosted my daughters conficence in herself. That resulted in higher class participation, involvment in schools athletic, theater and singing events. The fees were reasonable and welll worth the investment!

My daughter and I have been going to kickboxing classes for a year now, its been a great experience. From the first time we started kickboxing, there is a drastic change, from not being able to do a single pushup to now being able to do multiple pushups in a shorter time span... Having a great time and doing something that we are definitely benefiting from.. Would recommend these classes to anyone... the workouts are fun, quick and intense. Big Thank you to Sensei Vlad and his great staff. =)

Good School! They are terrific with kids and kids love the school. All Sensei are very dedicated to the school and its students, very much involved in their student's academic and sport progress and have great relationship with their students. Both of my sons are committed to school''s demands and challenges and have shown great interest and improvement in their skills and discipline

I started attending this school a bit over a year ago and it was one of the best decisions I have made. I take the Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) classes, Adult Karate classes, Cage Fitness classes, Brazilian Jiu Jitsue classes, and have now started the Kickboxing classes. Each class is a different type of training and I love every bit of it. The school has improved my stamina, strength, posture, flexibility, has given me technique and so much more. I can have a really bad day and I will know that I will leave training in a happier state of mind that evening. Even though I still have A LOT more to learn, Sensei Vlad has taught me things that I have never believed I could do. In addition, my 4 year old niece started taking the Little Tigers classes and absolutely loves it. The sensei''s make the class fun and educational. My niece looks forward to it every day. Definitely worth the time to try out this school.

There are so many different Karate schools out there- but as soon as you step inside Amerikick in Staten Island you can feel that this is a place that you DONT want to leave. It is truly one of a kind. The aura, environment, instructors, and other students all give this school a very special feeling. Especially the owner, Vlad who is always there to accomodate you, help and make sure you are 100% satisfied. Everything here is taken seriously with a dose of fun. You must try a class at this school or you are definitely missing out!!

This is a Great program for kids with great, knowledgeable instructors in a fun, but focused environment. My kids are always excited to go and I see them improve with great enthusiasm every time we go. Plus, they have lots of extra activities like movie nights and parties that my kids are always begging me to go to. I also take the kick boxing for ladies classes and feel that is very challenging (I run marathons) and really great for upper strength, core and leg work. The instructors always make time during a class to periodically work with you as an individual to make sure you have got the right technique. REALLY Great!!!!!!!!!!!

Great kickboxing classes that fit my busy work schedule. This is more effective than going to the gym and the staff is wonderful

My both sons are students in the Amerikick School in Staten Island for over 2 years now and they love every day spent in training. It is a rarity to find such dedicated instructors who encourage students to train hard and achieve new heights in martial arts while growing up with proper values in life. Owners of this place are truly creative and sincerely care about their impact on young minds. I would strongly recommend to all interested in offering their children an opportunity to try themselves in karate and I am sure their kids will love it in this school.

"Great for kids and adults " November 19, 2010 You can see happy screaming children come out after their Karate classes, still discussing what they did right or wrong. The instructors and support staff always have time to answer questions and are very helpful and patient. Everyone''s attitude is always positive.

"Perfect both for family and individuals" November 18,2010. Very professional, talented, and passionate staff! My daughter and I take karate classes twice a week, my wife takes kickboxing classes. Should I say more?
Of course... "YES SENSEI!"

- After suffering a personal setback in my life, I was looking for something that would help me to channel negative thoughts and energy into something constructive and positive. I know that I quickly needed to find the balance and focus that had been misplaced in my life. For many Years, I had the thought of someday taking up martial arts instruction. After a solid internet search, I happened upon AmeriKick Staten Island, conveniently nearby. The owner, Sensei Vlad, welcomed me personally and offered me a 2 day trial with no pressure or obligation to stay. Being 34 year old guy starting late in the game, I was nervous about being a rookie surrounded by younger skilled martial artists. MY fears couldn''t have been farther off base! I was instantly welcomed and inspired by Sensei Vlad and the entire class, whose company and camaraderie I have come to enjoy. Sensei Vlad takes a personal interest in my training and my live. In the last 4 months, I have lost weight, increased my strength and endurance, toned up and my social, family and work relationships have all greatly improved. He and my classmates have helped me to relaim my focus and balance and boost my overall outlook on life!
Unlike Any Other! *****By Helen - Jul 24, 2009
You will not regret taking classes at the Amerikick school in Staten Island. What makes this school so unique is that the instructors are very accommodating, friendly, devoted and educated in their skill. Unlike all the other Martial Arts schools out there who take the same impersonal approach, I felt like I was given one-on-one treatment that fit just right to my body type, eating habits, and lifestyle. Especially classes with Sensei vlad were not only challenging but extremely fulfilling.
Great School *****By Vman - Apr 30, 2009
This is a great school! I take kickboxing classes there and I love it. Also planning to send my kids to karate at the same place. My friend''s kids go there for karate and they really like it.
My experience with Amerikick *****- Jani
Approximately three years ago my sister came to me enthusiastically with a flyer of the Amerikick Karate School in Brooklyn stating that she signed us up for ladies kickboxing. My first response to her was “no, that''s not for me,” but then I received a phone call from Sensei Vlad welcoming me and my sister to the Karate school. This kind gesture gave me the sense that Amerikick is a cool place. That phone call brought me into the Karate school for my first lesson. My experience with Amerikick has been and continues to be a fabulous one. The sense of community/environment, the staff, and the Sensei''s allow for your experience to be a positive one. A new Amerikick karate studio had its grand opening a few months ago where Sensei Vlad is an instructor. As one of his students in Park slope, I can say from personal experience that the kids as well as the adults will get a lot out of his lessons. I know that as his student I learned how to defend myself, became more flexible, increased my strength, LOST WEIGHT, AND DISCOVERED THAT I HAD ABS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I also had fun in the process.

I joined AmeriKick in Staten Island a month ago, and I couldn''t have asked for a better kickboxing class. The workouts are intense and nothing like running on the treadmill. I love how Sensei Vlad drills the students and still comes around to correct or help people who don''t quite understand. This kickboxing class is a great way to get in shape and even better way to release any anger or stress on the bag.

I passed by the school because of this flyer I saw in a store. I was skeptical about coming in, but then I just said what the heck! Anyhow, I came in and the environment is so welcoming, I was greeted as soon as I entered. The woman and the desk gave me all the information I needed for Kickboxing. It''s a Grand opening, I don''t know how long that will last but I''m getting 50%off Because I''m signing up NEXT WEEK! So Excited.

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY. A GREAT PLACE TO TAKE YOUR KIDS. THE INSTUCTORS ARE SO PATIENT AND SWEET. ALWAYS SMILING, ALWAYS INTERACTING WITH THE PARENTS. SUCH A GREAT VIBE. MOST OF ALL, ALL THE KIDS HERE LEARN SOMETHING NEW EVER CLASS, NOT LIKE OTHER SCHOOL, THAT TEACH THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN. I PERSONALLY QUITE SCHOOLS 5 TIMES DUE TO LACK OF INTERST IN HOW THE INSTRUCTORS TOUGHT CLASSES. HERE AT AMERIKICK, ITS FUN, INTERESTING, EDUCATIONAL, AND MOST OF ALL IT''S A LESSON FOR LIFE. I AM NOW A BLACK BELT AT THIS SCHOOL AND LOVES TEACHING EVERY SECOND BECAUSE I WANT ALL THE KIDS TO GET THE REAL BENEFIT OF MARTIAL ARTS.
