Lorenzo is a world-class champion fighter AND guy! He really loves his dojo and you can feel it in his presence and within his students and the walls of his gym. A-Class!!! Can't possibly recommend any more!

Really enjoyed watching my little brother’s class last night. Sensei Lorenzo was great with the little ones. It’s inspiring what a positive impact he’s making on the younger generation.

Excellent place to have your children’s birthday party. Very kind sensei and everyone is friendly and helpful. By far the best place to take your children and the best place to teach them to be interactive!

Ageless Martial Arts offers an excellent dojo location, Sensei Lorenzo is the warmest welcoming Sensei to host children birthday parties or to learn the arts inclusively. AMA hosted my grandson 8th birthday party yesterday and the Sensei found creative ways to keep the children and parents excitedly entertained...AMA is high on my favorites list

This place has been amazing for my son in so many ways. Sensei Lorenzo is fully invested in helping kids (and adults) challenge themselves to meet their full potential (physically and mentally). He also throws an epic Birthday party (also for kids or adults).

So far we are super happy with Ageless Martial Arts and Sensei Lorenzo. He seems to really care about spreading the benefits of martial arts and takes special care to teach karate to kids in a relatable way. The teaching method is the right balance beteeen discipline and fun. And Sensei does a ridiculous amount of extras for both kids and parents. Nice to see someone ambitiously growing his small business the right way. Highly recommend Ageless Martial Arts

Sensei Lorenzo and his staff go all out and work hard to better our boys and the community. Sensei is passionate, kind and goes to great lengths to please everyone and improve the children’s abilities. Not sure if I have ever met someone who appreciates, accepts and receives thoughts from parents and others to better their business. My boys are learning how to defend themselves, work hard and becoming passionate about being great at Shotokan. They are proud of their accomplishments. Thank you, Sensei!

I have been working out on my own for a very long time but never had much of any practical application of my fitness. I wanted to be able to learn how to apply my force with expertise. This want made me find Ageless. From the first time I spoke to Sensei Lorenzo on the phone he answered all of my questions with expertise and even advised to check out other schools if Ageless did not fit me, this showed me he cared more about my goal instead of his bank account. From the first time I stepped on the mat he was nothing but patient and a professional. I have only just started training at this dojo, but Sensei Lorenzo has made me incredibly excited to steep myself in Japanese tradition and learn the art of Karate. If you're not quite sure about joining or not, give the dojo a call, you'll see all the proof you need as soon as you talk to Sensei Lorenzo.

1. 7 Must-Ask Questions: Choose the Best Karate Classes in Las Vegas

Karate Las Vegas

Ready to learn martial arts in Las Vegas? Whether you’re new to the area or just signing up for kid’s karate classes for the first time, we can help. There are several Las Vegas karate programs to choose from, but not every school offers the same level of high-quality instruction.

Before you book your first karate class and hit the mat, don’t forget to ask these 7 essential questions:

Las Vegas School of Shotokan Karate

  1. What is included in the cost of tuition?

Does tuition for karate classes in Las Vegas cover everything? Not always, but it should!

Some dojos tack on extra fees for gym access, uniforms, and belt tests. Don’t get blindsided by hidden fees and upcharges. Responsible karate schools should always offer transparent tuition contracts with affordable monthly rates.

  1. How is the martial arts curriculum organized?

Working toward a black belt takes years of hard work and dedication, so it’s essential that your sensei has an organized, comprehensive curriculum mapped out.

Initially, students should start with basic blocking and progress through defensive and offensive footwork before adding complex directional movement and weapons. Finally, your child will be prepared to add athletic movements inspired by jiu jitsu and boxing.

Look for a sensei who is transparent about their skills progression with a clear outline of the journey to a black belt.

  1. Do classes cover more than just self-defense?

Self-defense is only one element. Shotokan Karate is a tournament sport that teaches speed, strength, and flexibility along with life-changing soft skills. When searching for karate in Las Vegas, make sure to find a dojo that respects the art and customs of traditional karate and everything that it has to offer.

  1. How much experience does the sensei have?

Every staff member at the dojo should be well-trained and friendly with a passion for teaching and practicing karate. Look for a lead instructor who is a true leader with years of specialized training and proven credibility.

Ageless Karate is led by Sensei Lorenzo – a 4th degree black belt who has studied for more than 20 years with world class masters. He fought as an elite-level athlete and has won several prestigious titles at national and world championships.

  1. What are you doing to keep my child safe?

Safety must be the sensei’s top priority. Attentive supervision and safety gear are fundamental, but you should also consider the dojo’s general attitude toward health and wellness. Karate classes should always include stretching, and it’s important that your sensei has a strong understanding of kinesiology (body movement) to prevent and monitor injuries.

  1. Do you also teach life skills?

Las Vegas summer camps and karate classes can boost confidence, improve self-control, and teach respect. Look for a karate program that explicitly teaches and reinforces life skills. Building character should be at the core of the martial arts curriculum, not just a byproduct.

At Ageless Karate, we teach life skills every day, starting from the very first class. Look for a kid’s martial arts school that connects with children in an encouraging, creative, and inclusive way. We teach students how to lose and take a hit, then apply persistent discipline to keep moving forward.
