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.

Why your child needs to learn how to lose: Las Vegas Kids Karate

Why does your child need to learn how to lose?

Hello my name is Sensei Lorenzo Sandoval, I am the owner and head instructor of Ageless Martial Arts in Las Vegas. It is really important to teach kids how to fail and how to among failure learn how to get through it and learn how to become stronger in their journey. I will go over why during any activity in this case Karate, why its important for kids to learn how to fail. Though, this might be a common and often times obvious reason why kids should learn failure, I feel strongly as a instructor it should be a topic that should be discussed. We will go over based on my experience as an educator in the martial arts why failing is a huge importance of a child’s success.

FAILURE CREATES SUCCESS

Failure can create self esteem issues, but if the child has learned anything and building from understanding that they are worth the time and the effort to succeed, they must push themselves to get to the results they want. Often times parents will always try to get kids to quit on goals, on certain aspects of life of challenges, but we must teach children that quitting is not the answer. That, teaching them when its hard that when you should push through it. Sometimes, it can take weeks, months to convince them, but everyone goes through a low point and we need to teach them that life in general is not about quitting its about having the the discipline to push through it to get the success they need to gain.

WINNERS NEVER WIN

There alot of people I have trained over the years I have met who often times, win. Most gold medalist, most who are amazing at what they do. Though, they exceed that excellent in that field of study they never really grasp everything else and often times it comes at a price. That price usually is, an unbalanced in other areas of their life. Sometimes they will lack other areas of life that are important to them or their life skills to often survive in the real world. I myself have experienced that as well, and it important to teach children that real life circumstances need to be addressed. Someone who wins all the time never real does, they sacrifice so much that sometimes that’s all they can do for a skill, hobby or something that should have balanced. If their time is used wisely, maybe they can gain different times of ideas that can help them grow.

The best example I look to use is like this, I can relate it mostly to martial arts because that is my field of study. For example, sometimes you get as child that uses the same move in sparring. Every time they use the same series of fighting combinations, and thats all they use. Now they other argument is they can “master” this technique over and over again, which for the most part is true. But, also, we must teach kids to be versatile in how they think and how they can fight, and how they can fight for a better life and show their strengths to the world. We must show them that their must be balance in all aspects of life in general and teach them the importance that you can be good at one thing, but also learn that their are other aspects of it that can make that one thing better. To enhance that skill, you must add other areas of relevant material that will make it great.

Winners never win, because its almost a curse. Your so great at one thing, that often times everything else is neglected and forgotten. So we must teach our kids to be a winner in life, surrounfd yourself with different sets of skills that will help them grow.
