We love the flexible lesson times and the welcoming family atmosphere that the team at DeStolfo’s demonstrates every visit. Mr Fred is a also a master of child psychology!" - Richard Lyntton, Lafayette Hill, Pa
“My 7 year old son has been taking karate lessons at DeStolfos since he was 4. We've had a fantastic experience & continue to do so. It has, to name just a few, increased his focus, athletic ability & discipline. His karate skills, of course, continue to improve & grow. It's a very caring environment at DeStolfos, they want everyone to succeed and memorize every child's name on the first day. I love the take away message the instructor gives to the kids at the end of class. The other week it was about 'Responsibility'. They give real life examples that the kids understand, relevant to their age group. They are all asked to participate by answering questions. I've also had several birthday parties there as well, very affordable & the kids have a blast while being active participating in athletic & exciting games. I look forward to my son continuing to grow at DeStolfos for years to come." - Sue Cappiz, Conshohocken Pa

“ I have two boys age 9 and 11 who have been going to the DeStolfo's Martial Arts for almost 4 years now. My husband and I are very pleased with their accomplishments through out these years. Both my boys have gained so much confidence and maturity at such a young age. They have been able to obtain their Junior Black-Belt status last year and continue to learn more skills as they get prepared for their CTF certification by the end of next summer. As a parent I also appreciate the safe and caring atmosphere of this family run establishment. All the instructors pre skilled and qualified to train different levels and age groups. The leadership classes have also been extremely helpful to teach valuable lessons to my children.” - Donna G (Parent)
“We love the close knit community that the DeStolfos have developed both with and among their students over the 30+ years that they have been in business. People stay at this school, which is why there are over a dozen master level martial artists here and why the level of instruction is so high. There is great emphasis in the children’s program on ethics and safety. In the Black Belt Training and Leadership programs my ten year old has learned that he can set goals and achieve them and every year his interest in the martial arts seems to expand. The Adult programs are fun and challenging.“ -

“When I started training in 1993 I was a very overweight and a very shy 16 year old. I had no self confidence, a terrible attitude and was afraid of the world. I was down in the dumps and so my parents asked me if I wanted to try tae kwon do because my cousins did it and they loved it. I didn't want to at first, but after getting picked on quite harshly at the beginning of 10th grade I decided I had nothing to lose. “
“I wasn't very good at tae kwon do, but the instructors never lost patience with me. They challenged me and in time, my skills improved, and my confidence soared. In just 6 months time I had lost 40 pounds. Around the time I made it to black belt I started college. Although I was a C and D student in high school, I found that my focus and confidence had improved, and soon found myself carrying a 3.6 GPA at Penn State University. Thanks to the lessons and training, I was excelling in places that I traditionally struggled in. As the years rolled by and as my role in the school increased so did my successes. At 33 years old I am married and my wife and I are expecting our first child in December. Although not rich by any means, I can say that I am extremely happy with my life. If I trace the steps back that got me here, the road started on the cold January night I walked into Destolfo’s and trained for the first time."
“I would recommend anyone interested in any of the martial arts programs offered to come and meet either of the Destolfo’s. They are remarkable people, with years of training and expertise. “ - Dennis Koenig - 4th degree black belt.
