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.

The Art Of Martial Arts

Your kids will learn in any of the martial arts schools in Las Vegas that martial arts have diverse art forms. These art forms are what they will get trained in and they are:

  1. Karate

Grappling is a technique that entails fighting in very close proximity with your opponent. It involves lots of body contact and can involve diverse techniques ranging from throws to holds like strangling.

Jujitsu uses the momentum of the attacker to engage in joint locks in a  bid to restrain the opponent.

However, some others encourage their practitioners to make use of their opponent’s force against them. Some of its schools emphasize focusing on visualization and relaxation techniques.

  1. Capoeira

It is a Brazilian martial art that Angolan slaves first developed. They disguised their self-defense moves in the form of dance. Capoeira is quite acrobatic as it makes use of punches, flips, and kicks.

The Science Of Martial Arts

When it comes down to the science of martial arts, it will amaze you to note that martial arts can actively improve brain cognition. While this is a surprise to most people, you must note that martial arts are more than just a fighting system.
