Paks Karate Academy of Mandarin is an excellent environment for motivated individuals of all ages. Students are provided with a quality education in the Martial Arts. Additionally, strength, control, endurance, perseverance and respect are just a few of the areas of focus taught daily.
The Paks Karate experience is about so much more than class, as many hours are spent at social, service, educational, leadership, family and just plain fun activities. The Instructors are always serving in some capacity and are continuously exhibiting behavior becoming of a black belt, a great example for the younger students.
As students advance in belt rank their concentration, commitment and confidence increase, helping them grow as individuals, which benefits them in areas of their life outside of karate. The dedication to excellence through mentoring support and encouragement from the Paks Karate Academy of Mandarin leadership team is unparallelled! Thank you!
Engaging staff, great family atmosphere, very positive on discipline, self esteem, and helping others. Great experience for our son over past 4 years!
This place is great. Hands-down the best martial arts program going in Jacksonville. My son has tried every sport and activity under the sun, baseball, soccer (my favorite), drums, violin, cello, Cub Scouts, even another martial arts school and more. This is the only one were I don't have to remind him to get ready, as soon as he gets back from school, he's in his uniform ready to go!
The staff is professional and expects a higher level of performance and a proper attitude from the students.
There is a great viewing area for parents to watch and keep up on their kids progress.
The location is perfect, there is a dance studio next door that my daughters go to, there's a pizza joint and yogurt store near by and when the kids have back to back classes there is a great scrapbook store to head over to, to shop or just browse.
Pak's is also very community oriented, we can't wait for our first Fall Festival with them!
The pricing is all inclusive, so unlike other extracurriculars where you pay up front and them seemingly every other month for some sort of fee, they don't do that here. One price, as much Karate as you can take!
Pak's Mandarin is one of the special places where you not only buy karate lessons but where you also get a family. My son is extremely happy at Pak's Mandarin and I have made many friends. Excellent karate school!
