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.

Kids and Karate During COVID-19

These unprecedented times of social distancing and quarantine during the global coronavirus pandemic is tough on you and your kids. Finding ways to instill a sense of normalcy and continue the healthy progress of your children is challenging without the ability to participate in the activities they enjoy. Those kids who are on a path to master the art of karate in Las Vegas can still take advantage of the benefits and rewards from

Karate provides kids necessary physical and mental disciplines that contribute to the healthy growth of their minds and bodies. This is even more important during the time of COVID-19 when they are far less active and stimulated. As families adjust to their new way of life, they have found ways to keep karate in their kids’ lives through socially distanced in-person classes and online virtual instruction.

Benefits of Karate in Las Vegas During Coronavirus Pandemic

The World Health Organization advises that children from the ages of 5-17 need at least one hour of movement or activity a day, at least three times a week. At this point, just getting your kids to stand up and look anywhere other than the screens of the TV, their computers or cell phones may qualify as the most exercise they have done in days. Physical activity boosts endorphin levels and keeps your child’s body growing and healthy. Building up muscle helps to prevent physical injuries and promotes faster recovery times.

Improves Mental Health, Memory

Getting your kids up and active will also help to improve their overall mental health and memory. Practicing martial arts helps relieve stress and remain focused. Karate training is as much a mental exercise as it is physical. It involves applying ancient philosophies that revolve around self-discipline, healthy competition, and goal setting. Ongoing karate helps promotes all of those attributes that may be otherwise getting lost during periods of quarantine.  

Promotes Routines

They might not want to admit it, but your kids thrive best when following a routine and adhering to a set schedule. It is more important than ever for kids to look to some sort of structure during these times of uncertainty and change. Keeping kids in martial arts classes in some way during the pandemic will give them a sense of security and something to look forward to.

Gives Parents a Break

The fact is that parents need a break once in a while. Having your kids participate in any kind of activity gives you a little time to get the things you need to get done, including your own exercising routine. As you focus on the physical and mental health needs of your children, remember that yours is just as important. Regular exercise provides a variety of health benefits, not the least of which is the ability to build up your immune system, a key factor in the ability to fight off COVID-19.

In-Person Kids Karate

The country has ridden the various waves of the pandemic, with Nevada and the Las Vegas metropolitan area changing and adjusting regulations and recommendations depending on the latest trends. This means that karate schools have been forced to adhere to strict health guidelines or even close all together until the numbers go down.

Either way, expect any in-person karate classes for your kids that are allowed to continue or resume to look and feel a bit different than pre-COVID-19 instruction. Changes to make classroom spaces safest for students and instructors include:

  • Smaller classroom sizes
  • Socially distanced spaces
  • No contact drills or physical contact of any kind
  • Thorough cleaning and disinfecting between classes
  • Students and staff have temperatures taken
  • All participants wear masks

Remote Learning and Virtual Karate in Las Vegas

Video conferencing, facetime, Zoom meetings, and Skype calls have been incredibly useful communication tools for all kinds of personal and business applications as an alternative to in-person gatherings and meetings.

Obviously, the ideal conditions to make the most of karate is through in-person, contact instruction. When that is not possible or advisable, karate students can attend classes from home through online learning.

Remote karate classes allow kids to continue their karate studies and stay active while abiding by social distancing guidelines or quarantine orders. Live streaming and on-demand video technology offers a variety of options for kids looking to start or continue with karate.
