About Saucon Valley Karate Academy in Hellertown, PA

Meet Philip J Geiter

Owner and Chief Instructor at
Saucon Valley Karate Academy in Hellertown
4th Degree Black Belt

Saucon Valley Karate Academy - Our Goal is Black Belt Excellence!

Have you heard of the traditional Korean Martial Art of Tang Soo Do? This Korean form of self-defense is based on scientific methods of empty hand and foot techniques, combined with weapon skills, designed to turn your body into a powerhouse of excellence!

Whether you are new to martial arts, a seasoned pro, or simply want an activity for your child to get passionate about after school...you can count on a traditional "home" feel within our modern martial arts training programs.

Certified instructors get you results, safely. It's easy to get caught up in the hype of hybrid classes of Crossfit-style moves mixed with martial arts techniques you only see in the movies. They look like a lot of fun, after all! But we focus on larger goals than teaching you how to quickly do a burpee to a roundhouse kick.

We want you healthy, successful, and kicking it into high gear as safely as possible. Qualified instructors will prepare you for real world experiences by training in a dynamic, fast paced atmosphere with over 2,000 years of study and skill behind the lessons.

Through Tang Soo Do you'll become part of a rich legacy of martial artists, with a stellar reputation, and invaluable life saving skills. Students develop defensive and offensive skills, learn how to handle and defend against weapons, and learn how to develop both physical and mental power through rigorous training.

At Saucon Valley Karate Academy we build leaders. We aim to build an atmosphere within the studio for all students to have a positive sanctuary. A place they can train knowing their efforts are what counts towards achieving amazing results!

We'll help you and your family improve not only your lives, but the lives of those you love and care about. Stop by or check out one of our web special to find out how you can join our family today; we can't wait to help you strive for Black Belt Excellence!
