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.

How Karate instills confidence in Timid children

Karate Las Vegas

Karate is an activity for your child to engage with that provides a space to build confidence. That’s why it’s essential to get your child signed up today at Ageless Martial Arts, one of the best martial arts studios in Las Vegas.

How Karate is Different Than a Team Sport

While competing only happens at a tournament, karate is a non-competitive sport when children can build a community. Achievements are very much connected to the child’s improvement with each session.

Outside of tournaments, karate is also not a spectator sport. Sometimes, parents will watch a class or participate in it. This idea allows for a comfortable environment for a child to be able to gain skills without feeling put on the spot.

Karate: Useful tools to build confidence

Karate provides a space for your child to step outside of their comfort zone also well as learn about the limits of their body and their strengths. No matter the size or gender of your child, with Karate, they will learn how to achieve their goals no matter the barriers that are in their way.

Learning Karate can be especially helpful for children who go through bullying by recognizing their abilities. While many people who face bullying are usually timid and lack confidence, Karate gives them tools to build themselves back up and have a stronger sense of self.

Helping Your Child Find Their Voice

Instructors will be there to help children learn how to speak up for themselves at home, at school, and even with friends. Getting training in a skill that values self-defense will help your child feel comfortable to break out of their shell.

The sort of self-confidence that Karate offers is an understanding of the discipline and how it can impact other parts of a person’s life.

Provide space for healthy social interaction

Good Karate classes include a great amount of fun to make it easier for children to connect with other peers, make new friends, and join in on fun activities that will help them feel safe to get out of their comfort zone.

Having space that Karate provides where your child can engage with social interactions will also make them feel more comfortable later on in life. Tournaments also give children a space to showcase what they have learned and their progress.

 

Acknowledgment of Each Student’s Growth

Karate instructors keep track of how each student is doing and give them praise for what they achieve to let them know what they are doing correctly. This praise gives children who usually feel shy and afraid to do things recognize that they have the drive and confidence to do whatever they put energy into.

With Karate, there is a specific achievement system with the colors of belts that give a signifier to the trainee that they are progressing and that their hard work is paying off. Your child will be recognized for what they are good at and worked on through the process of earning a new belt.

There are also specific skills that your child can focus on that can give them a sense of standing out for other classmates, encouraging even more self-confidence. Starting first with being awarded a white belt, then intermediate level blue belts, to finally achieving a black belt, as long as they put in the work and have a good discipline.

Building Self-Defense and An Assertive Voice

Karate is also where your child with learning how to be assertive when engaging with peers and other people throughout their life. Asking for help from both instructors and other peers allows your child to develop the ability to be direct in their communication and assert their needs without feeling embarrassed.

Later on in life, the skill of being assertive will help your child feel comfortable to ask questions and be assertive in situations. It also encourages your child to be ok with not knowing the answer to something.

It also makes them recognize when they need to speak up and that it is valid for them to express their boundaries. The environment of a Karate class also gives your child a shared group of kids working together to build skills for self-defense and gain confidence.

In conclusion

At Ageless Martial Arts, the art of Karate is provided by signing up for a class whether you’re a child or an adult. This fact is one of the best studios to learn Karate in Las Vegas with classes for all skill sets and even a summer camp, which is now open for registration.
