AmeriKick Martial Arts south philly very first opened its doors in the summer of 1993 as American Karate Studios. There were only a few schools in the Tri State area at the time. Jason began his training under his instructor Michael Semeriglia in 1998 under the name American Karate Studios. Jason became the owner and heads intructor in 2003 under AmeriKick Martial Arts. The South Philly Studio has promoted hundreds of black belts over the years and has a great instructor student ratio.
The Amerikick Organization now has over 25 schools across the country. Amerikick as an entirety now has Instructors from all over the country that are versed in a variety of Martial arts teaching the Amerikick system which is a finely honed and organized style teaching efficient and powerful self defense. Amerikick instructors and students are known for their excellent fighting and performance ability, winning World Titles in the spectacular and fast paced World martial arts competitions. Today Amerikick teaches children and adults of all ages and ability levels by starting them with a solid foundation of strong basic martial arts skills and helping them grow into formidable martial artists.
AmerKick South Philly is a school that I highly recommend. The environment is one of warmth, friendliness, openness, and family. In these days of so much violence it is essential for the students to learn lessons for life. Their instructors are very knowledgeable and they have the necessary skills to teach. They instill skills that the students will need to use outside the martial arts world. They provide flexible hours to accommodate all levels of learning. Jason Helmer maintains a well-organized and highly professional school. He is very committed to his instructors, students and their families at maintaining high levels at AmeriKick South Philly.
AmeriKick has helped me so much in dealing with various situations in everyday life and how to overcome them. I also feel that I will become more successful through the sensei’s teachings.
Since the age of 3 AmeriKick South Philly has been an important part in our child’s life. Nine years later our son is still loving karate. Thank You AmeriKick and also the wonderful south philly staff!
Sensei Jason and the staff at AmeriKick do more than teach karate. They are great mentors. Teaching life skills. Self discipline. Respect. As well as doing fun events and family gatherings. They truly care about their students and their families.
AmeriKick offers the best martial arts training in the area in a fun, safe and friendly environment! All the staff are very knowledgeable, patient and excellent with the kids. They start at age 3 and continue up to adults so they have something for everyone!
Place is well located and perfect for my child. My son is catching on fast, the instructors are excellent with small children.
I recently signed my son up for the Dragon (5-6yr old) class. The schedule is flexible and the instructors are patient, professional and organized! My son loves the classes and is having so much fun while getting great exercise and improving mind/body coordination! Great program!
