International Karate Ctr Of Ny
2928 Long Beach Rd, Oceanside, NY 11572
Having trained in a traditional style of martial arts for several years, I was skeptical about where I would resume my training after moving from NYC to Nassau County. My sensei had retired in 2005, and then I had back and leg problems that kept me out of the dojo for a time. I was willing to shop for another sensei at another dojo, and that's how I found Sensei Adel. The training has far exceeded my expectations, with each sensei contributing their unique experience and training to their students' development. The style is Shotokan Karate, which is very similar to my previous training. At Adels, they instill respect for the art, discipline that generalizes to the rest of my endeavors, and an enthusiasm for the training. I couldn't be more pleased.

Just read a negative review about Adel's Dojo.
Wow, couldn't be further from what really occurs.
Adel and his instructors are very talented and the classes are of the size where students receive an incredible amount of attention.
They are very much in control of their classes and, unlike other places, promote their students when its earned.
We took our son out of a very popular chain to Adel's and we could not be happier.

I have recently been reading the reviews about Adels International Karate - Oceanside NY and have been very disappointed to read there was some negativity. My son has been going to Adels for over 3 years. A former student of martial arts and now back into it as an adult, I wanted to find a school that focuses on tradition, strong teaching, honor, character, mentoring, discipline and overall family friendly. I had searched for a long time and decided to enroll my son. This school has brought so much to my son and his development. Sensei Adel treats every student, parent and teacher as family. He is honest, honorable and an overall excellent instructor. I was so impressed with my son's progress that I personally enrolled and have been going for almost 2 years. Sensei Adel is always looking for way to improve the experience and teaching of his students. I couldn't see myself training anywhere else.
PAMELA SHANTZ-YOU MUST HAVE A VERY DISTORTED SOUR OUTLOOK ON LIFE (QUIT SUCKING ON LEMONS)
Kudos to Adel's International Karate Center-a dojo of excellence for karate training! My children studied Shotokan karate at this school and attained their black belts under the instruction of Sensei Adel and his staff. It didn't take long for me to begin my study of karate here too! Sensei has years of experience training students in the dojo but also coaching them for state, national and international competitions. His staff instructors are highly qualified (some are USA-NKF Karate Champions) and very professional in terms of how they teach students and run classes. This school has been around for a long time and with good reason. Sensei and his staff have taught the students what karate is about..it is a way of life...discipline, respect, and honor.
so...AVOID PAMELA SHANTZ'S REVIEW AT ALL COSTS!

Kudos to Adel's International Karate Center-a dojo of excellence for karate training. My children studied Shotokan karate at this school for many years and attained their black belts (yes..it does take time to get one's black belt..any dojo that promises you a black belt in 1 year is one to avoid!) under the instruction of Sensei Adel and his staff. It didn't take long for me to begin my study of karate here too after seeing the wonderful positive experience my children and others always received at this fine dojo. Sensei has years of experience training students in the dojo as well as coaching them on state , national and international competition levels. His staff instructors are highly qualified (some are USA-NKF Karate Champions) and very professional in terms of how they teach students. This school has been around for a long time and with good reason! Sensei and his staff have taught the students what karate is about- a way of life..discipline..respect and honor. A positive experience, professional, great rapport with students. This is certainly the BLACK BELT OF DOJOS!
**AS FOR ""PAMELA SHANTZ'S"" SCATHING REVIEW & FALSE ACCUSATIONS OF THE DOJO.. REALLY ""PAMELA"", REALLY?!! IT CERTAINLY SOUNDS LIKE YOU LIVE IN QUITE A DISTORTION. I CAN ONLY IMAGINE WHAT YOU WOULD HAVE TO REPORT ABOUT THE RESTAURANT, TAVERN ON THE GREEN! OH...THAT'S RIGHT...PAMELA... IT CLOSED FOUR YEARS AGO... BUT DON'T WORRY, DON'T PAT YOURSELF ON THE BACK..IT CERTAINLY WASN'T DUE TO A REVIEW BY YOU! I JUST SAY...
AVOID PAMELA SHANTZ'S REVIEWS ABOUT EVERYTHING AT ALL COSTS!!!!!
Without Question the Review of Pamela Shantz is a slanderous and libelous straight forward lie. THE TRUTH: My two children have attended this Fine School for over 8 years, and then I became a student as well in the adult class. Sensei Adel, Jason and Brian, among other guest Sensei, are some of the finest teachers I have come to know. They all put their heart and soul into each class, teaching my children and I about karate as a Life pursuit and how to defend ourselves, if and when necessary. I have seen improved discipline, courtesy and actual positive behavioral changes, which stem from the Sensei and the Karate Classes at the school. My children and I, are ultimately more self-confident and self-determined. Performance is stressed and self improvement is acquired. IF YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN ARE NOT STUDENTS AT THIS SCHOOL YOU ARE MISSING THE PERFECTION IN THE PURSUIT OF SHOTOKAN KARATE.

In Response to PamelaShantz review don't believe any review that member post. its a fake account and a fake review concocted by our competition to defame our school. We Have never had a student or parent by that last name. And the review was written in the same week we let go a disgruntled employee. The truth is anyone who would write something so negative would do so out of jealousy,because they know how good we really are.

Sensei Adel is one of the finest and undoubtedly talented instructors available today. He is a champion fighter extremely well versed in the traditional teachings of Shotokan Karate. He is an excellent teacher to children focusing on discipline, learning and concentration.
