PPKC not only teaches karate but builds leadership, character, and respect. The PPKC staff are more than teachers, they are role models, mentors, motivators, and family! We are better people being part of their program.

Lindsay Yanklowski

My 5 and 8 year olds have been taking classes for almost 2 months, and love it here so much. The instructors are incredibly kind and caring while also teaching them discipline and how to follow directions. They are great with making every class a blend of having fun and learning karate.

PPKC is a very very special place and Sensei Peter is easily one of the best martial arts teacher. He is great guy and words are not enough to describe him, When you talk to Peter you will notice that you are talking to a very intelligent person with exceptionally high positive energy levels. His discipline, dedication, professionalism towards his students is incredible. Together Nicole, Peter and Lukas are a great team, super friendly and are highly passionate about all the students. They remember the name of each kid, their strength, weakness and they get the best out of all kids. Each and every class they conduct is full of energy, high quality learning and a memorable experience. In addition to Karate, Peter and Lukas also gives them real life lessons around discipline, hardwork, honesty, integrity and much more. They always raise their bar higher and higher. During these lockdowns, PPKC quickly moved to online lessons with same levels of intensity and quality and now in-person learning is back again with all the necessary safety measures and guidelines. All of these transition was very well managed. Thanks PPKC for everything you do for the kids.

This one motivation that kept kids going during peak pandemic times. Every one stepped back but PPKC stepped up in these times and helped kids get physical exercise and continued to teach Karate and conducted tests. PPKC team Never gave up!!!

Samantha Sickorez

We love this dojo and Sensei and all the teachers! So much changed suddenly this year, yet my boys' were able to move very smoothly to virtual karate lessons, which gave them a sense of routine and consistency throughout the spring and summer. My youngest son struggles to control his body and his emotions, and his time learning karate and working with these fabulous instructors has resulted in fantastic growth! So grateful

Jen Shapiro

Nicole, Peter and their team are truly wonderful partners in the community. They have so many offerings based on your needs and are so caring to all the kids and families who belong to the dojo. They know every child's name and balance an impressive mix of fun along with focus, respect and discipline to the practice. We've been going for years - both to the karate classes and camp. My son loves it there!

Jasmin Keramaty

Sensei Peter Pippos is a special person--his energy and positivity are infectious. This place is full of heart and a great place for physical and emotional growth. It is family run, and clear they are all passionate about their students. It has really helped keep some balance in our lives during the pandemic.

Thank Goodness I heard about PPKC when I moved to Acton! The Pippos family is a great support for the Acton community in so many ways. I first knew of the Center for their after school program, which I'd say is the BEST in town. We're very unhappy with the AB Community Education Extended Care program and fortunately PPKC had an opening and we're able to move our daughter to their afterschool program starting in January on 2020 and that was the best decision we could have made. The environment is so bright and so positive, our daughter was much happier, with the plus that now she was also doing Karate. Sensei Peter is a great leader, everybody loves him. After the pandemic, PPKC quickly started offering online lessons which was great for everyone in the middle of the lockdown and with so much anxiety for what was going on. Nicole Pippos even organized a few time online activities through zoom, like Bingo or treasure hunts. When school started in the fall of 2020, they started the Empower Academy for kids taking online classes which has been a lifesaver for working parents and has offered some sense of normalcy to our children. I cannot express my gratitude for the PPKC family for the positive impact they have in our life. We love you!

Peter is a positive role model instilling values into kids. I’ve seen my son develop confidence in himself that I directly attribute to this school and what they teach. Peter, Lukas, and Morgan make class fun while teaching karate and life lessons. I highly recommend this school if you are looking to develop your physical abilities, learn self defense, and build a positive mindset.

Thank you Nicole and Peter for your all efforts for keeping your all students and family engaged, connected and motivated in this Covid19 situation.
Stay safe and healthy!!!

Honestly, this is better than counseling or therapy! Veronica has never needed to go to a therapist, but I can really see how kids in need can benefit for doing Karate with Sensei Peter. He has a wonderful spirit! Thank you!!! I'd say you are the best we have encountered in Acton since we moved!

Great Karate Center! Sensei's classes are fun and educational. Both my girls attend classes here twice a week. Its not just about the Karate, Sensei teaches them about life lessons and responsibility. He makes the class fun and interesting. If there is time at the end he will always try and finish with some musical game of some sort which the kids love. Been coming over a year now and can't wait till my girls reach Black belt. Sensei always has a smile on his face and will go out of his way to say hello to all parents.

Summer Camp

The Best Summer Camps Teach Martial Arts

It might not seem possible, but summer is almost here. The kids will be out of school – and you’ll be wondering what you can do to help them fill their days with something other than endless rounds of video games.
We have the ideal solution in our summer camp for kids. The children who attend our camps get to enjoy a wide range of activities – and they’ll have a great time doing it. Let’s talk about some of the benefits of signing your kids up for our summer camp.

#1: You Won’t Have to Worry Where Your Kids Are
Whether you work all day or you’re in and out of the house, you’re probably accustomed to spending some of your summer worrying about what your kids are doing. Will they stay at home or get into trouble?
When your kids are with us, they’ll be supervised. You’ll have the peace of mind of knowing where they are, who they’re with, and what they’re doing.

#2: They’ll Get Plenty of Exercise
Our summer camp for kids ensures that your kids won’t spend their summers lounging in front of video games. They’ll get age-appropriate martial arts instruction that includes intense workouts to help them get (or stay) in shape.
Kids need exercise to be healthy. The achievable goals and regular testing that are the hallmarks of martial arts instruction will help them build the habit of exercise and keep them motivated both in and out of class.

#3: They’ll Learn Things to Help Them in School
The five tenets of martial arts teach kids to be courteous, dignified, controlled, confident, and spirited. These are qualities that will help them at camp, and they’ll take them back to school when the summer ends.
We think one of the biggest benefits of attending martial arts camp is that kids learn the kinds of skills they need to be successful in life. They’ll head back to school with new tools and a strong mindset that will help them be better students.

#4: They’ll Make New Friends
Summer is the season when kids can spend time with their friends. But for some kids, it can also be a time when friends are traveling and loneliness sets in. That’s not the case with our martial arts summer camp.
The kids who come here have plenty of time to socialize with one another. Classes are grouped by age and every child who attends comes in knowing they have something in common with the other campers. We’ve seen life-long friendships formed at our camp. Your child’s new best friend could be waiting for them here!

#5: Your Kids Will Have Fun
It might not be easy to get your kids to agree to summer camp, but we find that’s not the case when parents propose our martial arts camp to their kids. Studying the martial arts is fun, and it’s a great social activity.
In addition to martial arts, we offer tons of other fun activities for kids. They’ll play games, laugh, and get to know other kids in a relaxed setting. We think it’s the best way to spend a summer vacation – and we think your kids will agree!

Instead of worrying where your kids are or what they’re doing the summer, why not enroll them in our summer camp? They’ll have a great time, learn something new, and pick up skills that will endure for a lifetime.
