Felix G., Martial Posture Testimonials

I've had the privilege of knowing and training with Ish and the Martial Posture family for a little bit over a decade and their professionalism is unmatched. I have watched them mold kids into young adults who will do amazing things for our society. Their willingness to always put their students first is something you won't find anywhere else. Do yourself a favor and try one of their many amazing programs. You will not be disappointed!

Robert B., Martial Posture Testimonials

Great martial arts instruction and practice in a safe, supportive atmosphere. Adult classes are vigorous exercise combined with careful, intense, expert training. Ish, the owner, and chief instructor, believes in practical self-defense techniques. His training and classes are based on a wide range of martial arts theory. No stifling dogma and ceremony here!

The students are decent, bright, high-quality people from various walks of life and age groups.

Paul C., Martial Posture Testimonials

Martial Posture rocks! Great, thoughtful instructors, terrific facilities and programming, and the Admin staff, especially Marie, is fabulous. My two boys have learned a lot and their two younger brothers, who often observe, already know the 'coordination set.' My nine year old has been going for almost six years now. Great community of people.

Hands down the best after care, karate, and dance studio!!!  Each are individually the best.  You cannot make a better choice for your children.

Martial posture is amazing!!! My brother Derrick White grew up with them battling Sickle Cell Disease and Scoliosis his whole life. He still managed to create lasting bonds, obtain a black belt and ultimately teach students. I think the teaching above everything else was his passion. It meant so much to us for Ishmael and some of Derrick's classmates attend his funeral.

I first started going to Martial Posture around 10 years ago, if not longer. I received great instruction from everyone. I even won the sparring championship one year at a tournament that the whole school into. I've going recently every Monday night for kick-boxing. It' one hell of a workout, you learn a lot, and it's just tons of fun!!!

Kafi L. , Martial Posture Testimonials

My son attends after school care and karate classes at Martial Posture. We both absolutely love it.  The instructors are amazing -- they instill discipline and technique in a thoughtful and respectful manner.  The kids learn by example the importance of care for each other and confidence in themselves. While my son has progressed in his training most importantly I've watched his confidence grow and spill into how he tackles school, sports and challenges in general.

Audrey P , Martial Posture Testimonials

Martial Posture is a great place for karate instruction. There is a wide range of students here, from little teeny white belts as young as 4 all the way up to big tall black belts, and everything in between. Located at 21st and Chestnut, this is a convenient location for Center City residents -- close to parking, mass transit and many restaurants.

Classes are held for each level on Saturdays and two days during the week (some M&W, others T&Th). For $99 you get eight lessons a month, which you can take whichever days you want. This flexibility has been very helpful.

What really sets this school apart to me though is the excellent teaching staff. Mr. Ish leads the school and he's a great leader to both the students and his staff. Discipline is maintained, but never in a mean way, always with kindness or humor. Black belt students help with classes and often assist students who need extra help. Classes are small or split up into smaller groups, and each starts with a very good warmup followed by instruction which concentrates on a series of moves; teachers also show the students how the moves apply to actual combat.

In addition to classes there is a sparring class for all ages. There is also a room for students before or after class where they can read, watch a movie or play computer games, do their homework or just hang out. There's a water dispenser. The classes are supplemented by summer camp weeks and there are after school programs and camps that often coincide with school holidays.

I can't speak highly enough of this great school and the terrific job they do here.
