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.

Las Vegas Parents: 5 steps for your child to listen to you.


Every parent struggles with getting their child to follow directions and learn how to listen to their directions. What are some key concepts that we’ve learned at our martial arts school, that can help them listen to you and help you along the way to teach them focus and direction in their life. At Ageless Martial Arts Las Vegas our key is to help kids grow and develop mindsets  that will ultimately create better people through the martial arts.

STEP 1 : GOALS AND ASPIRATIONS 


     One of the key factors is telling children that we need to set goals and aspirations is that they must understand that there is a consequence when they do not try hard. In martial arts we use this by teaching them that if they cannot try hard they will not get the skill needed to move forward and progress. It is important to show the child that their are always going to challenges in everything they do, always. But if they value that cause, that goal, they will have to work hard to attain that knowledge, skill, or at times earn that item they want. Giving them goals and working for it is such important role to show as a parent that it will help them and teach them to work hard for the things they want. 

     I realize too, not everyone does martial arts, and we can use these examples in all aspects of life, football, basketball, violin, etc. But the goal is to always teach your child to work hard for something or anything so they develop good habits that will give them strong goal setting foundations in life.

STEP 2:  LEAD BY EXAMPLE 

       I get, no one is perfect, we all make mistakes and this one can be hard to look at but I truly believe this is a true statement. Kids follow us, watch us as they learn. I can’t tell you how many times kids will copy adults and see how it can affect how they act around our world. Leading by example is super important. We know this as a martial arts school, because kids watch us all the time, and they follow our example even in the way we act, what Karate moves we do, and what systems we create. Imitating leaders is a common thing that we do even as adults. We need to show our children that we have a standard in the way who we are as people so they can be better than us in the future. 

STEP 3: HAVE RULES AND DISCIPLINE

You are the parent, not the friend, not the buddy next door. You have to teach them to learn how to do daily task to teach them discipline and responsibility. Always know sometimes its ok not to always get what you want, its ok to fail and more importantly trying your best everyday will help this way of teaching them discipline. Having rules in the house teaches them structure and it teaches them they must do daily task to live a good life style that will help succeed. In martial arts, doing the same things repeatedly help you attain much greater skills of self defense work. Teaching them rules and smalls steps in doing things the right way, will help them attain rewards that pay off in the end. By following rules, it teaches them to never give up and create a life worth living through structure. 



STEP 4: LOVE AND COMPASSION 

Be there, for your child. Support them in everything they do, its hard to do things alone, and show them that you care. Create a team that they know you love them, and they are part of your everyday reason why you exist to help them grow into the person they deserve to be. You want them to listen to you? Show them love, whatever version of love you feel they must have, all kids are different sure, but from a martial arts stand point we show care and respect to show we want them to be better. We want them to attain that skills and its valuable to them, that we care about their well being and that will go a long way in the relationship of them listening to you. 

STEP 5: TEACH THEM TO LISTEN. 

Teach them to listen to the right people, that listening is such an important skill. Not only to listen, but to apply it to everyday life especially if it can help them! Listening to specific direction can teach them not only can replicate it, but understanding the knowledge thats handed to them. I find that in general sometimes kids tend to be stubborn, especially when a child feels they don’t want to listen because they feel like they know, or lack of appreciation in certain aspects of their life. Sometimes, having a role model. a teacher, or a positive outside person can help them to realize that parents that care about their child, they should be willing to listen and take the time to learn from them. 

Of course these are general statements, and this is just my experience as a Sensei and Martial arts instructor over the years. These are key factors in how I get our kids to follow directions and be successful in our martial arts school in Las Vegas. Hope that helps.
