Well, let me tell you, one of the great things about martial arts is that anyone can start learning at any time, all it takes is the will. Yes, the will to stop procrastinating and get going.
It's As Easy As Showing Up For Your First Class.
Surprisingly, people who have never taken martial arts before assume that when they enroll in our Adult Martial Arts program, you just learn some cool moves like the ones seen in movies. However, training in the martial arts gives you so much more than that. Specifically, when you enroll at our school, you will gain a ton of benefits that you probably didn't think about.

If you are ready, we want you to be our next student. Hopefully, we want you to get all of the benefits that martial arts have to offer.
"Martial Arts Gets You Into The Best Shape Of Your Life."
At times finding a basic fitness routine that you like and enjoy should not be an impossible task.
However, we know you are busy. For example, the kids have to be taken care of, and work has its own stresses. Well, what you need is a routine that isn't dull and boring. Sometimes, you might need an Adult Martial Arts workout that you can do in under an hour and that works out your whole body from head to toe.
Look no further, we are here to help. Don't let yourself get stuck in rut. Get out of your comfort zone.
A Different Type Of Workout.
When you enroll, you’ll get a completely different type of workout in a new environment and actually learn some practical defense skills. As a result, martial arts can do wonders for your health.
In fact, a martial artist’s body is unlike the body of any other athlete. For example, there is a huge difference in the way a martial artist works out, and the standard day at the fitness center. Sometimes, we differ by focusing on teaching you specific methods of gaining strength, speed, flexibility, and endurance. In addition, workouts are never boring because you are constantly interacting with other students.
Also, the martial arts workout is not like a typical aerobics class. In particular, each movement is taught in detail and therefore you will never feel "lost" or out of place. Fortunately, we know that you may have never taken martial arts before. However, we are always patient, and professional. Indeed, the instructors are totally committed to making you progress. With this intention, you take training at your own pace and you are never too old or too out of shape to start.
Also, you will learn the most efficient way to get in and stay in shape. All things considered, it is a fun, fulfilling, motivating, workout, where everyone walks away with something new each day. However, the best thing about our workouts is: you accomplish two things at once. Specifically, you develop your body and health while you learn self-defense.
So, when you enroll in the adult martial arts program, there are 2 specific types of improvements you will see.
Martial Arts Classes Improve Your Cardio.
First, you will improve your cardiovascular fitness.
This kind of body conditioning are essential for fighting. Also, Cardiovascular workouts are the ones that get your blood pumping.
As a result, you see your metabolism speed up and you will start to burn calories even at rest. In addition, you will relieve stress, and you end up sleeping way better at night.
Honestly, the secret that makes martial arts training such a great way to lose weight is that martial arts moves utilize the muscles in the entire body.
Martial arts don't just tone one specific area of your body.
It works out your: Legs, Core, Abdominal's, Chest, Biceps ...and everything else in between.
Again, when you train in the martial arts your whole body is learning to move in new ways. Also, you start to use muscles that you have never engaged before.
Namely, once you start building muscles your body automatically starts to burn more calories, even when resting.
With our Adult Martial Arts program you can actually accelerate your body's metabolism.
Here's the story:
I started training in martial arts as a teenager. At that time in my life, I was getting into a LOT of trouble. I was hanging out with the wrong crowd.
But wait, it didn't stop there...
Unfortunately, I was staying out late without calling. Basically, I was a juvenile delinquent. In truth, I was my parent's worst nightmare come true.
Astonishing, isn't it?
Suffice to say I owe my parents a BIG apology!
Anyway, at this time, I wasn't actively looking for the benefits that the martial arts had to offer.
Honestly, I just thought it was the coolest thing in the world to be able to actually learn this stuff. However, it was only after a few months of training that I became aware of all of the benefits that training in martial arts had to offer.
My name is Kevin Kawada and my wife’s name is Renee Kawada. Martial arts training had a remarkable positive impact on my life.
Because of this, we decided to open our own martial arts school in March of 2004. At that time we made a promise to improve the lives of all our students. Truly, we want you to experience the life-transforming experience that is martial arts.
Please come in and see our school in person! We would love to have you as our next student!
"Martial Arts Classes Gives You Flexibility."
Secondly, there is flexibility. Most people wish they were more flexible but don’t do anything about it. However, training in adult martial arts will give you flexibility without having to stretch for hours at a time.
Old age is really a loss of flexibility and suppleness of your body.
Also, flexibility training in martial arts will keep you young. With work, you can improve your flexibility at any age.
"No Judgment, This Is Not Bootcamp. You Take Things At Your Own Pace. "
Adult martial arts classes at our academy are for everyone. All levels of fitness are welcome. Everyone is a work in progress and you have to start somewhere.
Setting small goals for yourself and then accomplishing those goals is the way to fulfill your potential.
Obviously, a college degree is not earned in just a semester. Similarly, Kung Fu can't be mastered in a month. Any big and overwhelming endeavor can be managed successfully by breaking it into manageable sections.
"Martial Arts Classes Gives You Increased Focus And Concentration."
Improved focus comes from the diligent practice of the forms and routines found in the martial arts.
Sometimes, when you have to memorize and be aware of every detail of your posture, stance power, speed and fluidity, your ability to focus, grows by leaps and bounds.
One of the biggest benefits of training here is the improvement you will see in your level of discipline.
To be successful in the martial arts, large amounts of self-discipline are required.
As a result, this kind of discipline translates directly to all other areas of your life, such as work and family.
Martial Arts Training Gives You Confidence.
The second benefit you will see once you start training here is that you will feel like you have become a lot tougher mentally not just physically.
Every class that you attend is you pushing yourself slightly outside of your comfort zone; You push through your previous limits a little every class. Hence, you start to EVOLVE into a mentally strong person that can withstand the pettiness of everyday life with nothing more than a shrug!
You essentially become a fighter outside of the gym, in ALL aspects of your life.
Toughness IS confidence.
Remember, belief in yourself comes from accomplishment. In addition, the best part is that the more you achieve in martial arts the more confidence you gain.
Now, of course, it takes hard work and dedication to achieve a high level in martial arts. However, if it were easy, you wouldn't get anything out of it. As a result, you would not feel the same sense of self-confidence your self-esteem would remain the same.
Adult Martial Arts Classes Will Give You An Improved Social Life.
In today's world of increased isolation, being part of a group of like-minded individuals can be invaluable. Everyone in our adult martial arts program is on the same path as you,
The other students are interested in the same goals. They are working toward improving and bettering themselves, just like you.
Being part of a tribe of people with similar values and goals lead to lasting friendships even outside of the school.
You Will Learn Real Self-defense That Can Save Your Life
But make no mistake about it...
Our Adult Martial Arts program teaches essential self-defense skills. Furthermore, we teach practical, proven self-defense methods that do not rely on individual techniques but rather on principles.
Honestly, real self-defense is not taught at many martial arts schools. Even in MMA, there are quite a few rules that limit you to what you do.
Self-defense starts by knowing how to avoid conflict. Martial artists always walk away from potential fights whenever they can. Martial arts techniques are only used when there is no other option.
That being said, you will learn to quickly incapacitate an attacker using practical self-defense techniques.
For example, you are not allowed to kick your opponent in the groin in a boxing match. Moreover, you are not allowed to use any kind of weapon. There are no multiple attackers. Sometimes, strikes to the sensitive areas of the human body such as the eyes throat and groin are all fair game in a real-life self-defense confrontation. One must remember, there are no rules when it comes to protecting yourself and your family.
It is most likely that there is no help on the way and at this point, it will be up to you to go home safe.
The adult martial arts curriculum is put together from reality-based styles and systems. For example, Jeet Kune Do, Wing Chun, Kali, and Kung Fu are all self-defense based styles that are not meant for the ring.
Don't get me wrong, sport martial arts such as wrestling and boxing can be used for self-defense. However, the best styles are the ancient martial arts I have mentioned above because they were designed from the ground up to be practical and effective.
A Word Of Caution: Not All Martial Arts Schools Are Created Equal
It's sad, but true - there are too many schools out there that claim they can deliver what parents really want but don't quite get the job done.
Why Join The Las Vegas Kung Fu Academy?
To begin with, you have so many choices when it comes to enrolling in a martial arts school.
Think about it...
When you enroll in an Adult Martial Arts program you will be spending time, money and effort at the school. Before enrolling, you want to make the right decision from the very beginning.
OK, I know what you're thinking.
So how are we different?
You Will Receive Personalized Instruction
The only way to get you the benefits that you are looking for is to make every class personalized for each student.
Let me show you exactly how this works:
First, when you come to class it is my job to find out what kind of learner you are. Sometimes, people learn very well through verbal instructions. On the other hand, other students may learn from having me physically go and move their arms in the correct position.
However, others may learn best from seeing some of the advanced students perform movements.
At our academy, there are many teaching techniques we use in class to make sure that every single student walks away from the class with something fresh. However, this doesn't mean we teach something new each class. Instead, we found a way to keep things interesting.
Next, when you start Adult Martial Arts classes at our school you will not just be a number in the crowd. Of course, we (the instructors) know every single student's name in our entire school, and you will soon know everyone's name as well.
Throughout my life, I have been to many martial arts schools. Unfortunately, I would at times have to work partner drills with people without even knowing each other's name! At our academy, it is a friendly atmosphere and we all know each other's name.
Afterall, don't you want to train at a school where everyone is friendly and the atmosphere is non-intimidating?
Passionate Instructors Who Truly Care
Our instructors have high expectations for all students.
All of the instructors and helpers at our academy are PASSIONATE and Energetic.
Some of the instructors have been teaching for 27 years. Yes, we truly love working with people. Look, we understand that the most fun teachers are the teachers who have fun themselves while teaching.
Finally, we also understand the responsibility that comes with being a martial arts instructor. Most of the times, people look up to their instructors and will make lasting memories that will stay with them for a lifetime.
But Don't Take My Word For It! Here Are Some Of Our Students Talking About Our Adult Martial Arts Program:
"I am currently in the best shape of my life but even more important I am gaining confidence in myself that I never thought possible."
Dear Kevin and Renee, I would like to take this time to thank you for the positive changes you and your studio has made to my life over the last six months.
Before I joined your studio, I called and spoke to Kevin on the telephone. I was inquiring about the type of training you provided. Also, I was looking for a studio that I could learn the art of kung fu but needed a place that was patient and encouraging.
In addition, I wanted an Adult Martial Arts program that engaged my mind and body. I would like to tell you that you have provided this environment and so much more. Honestly, as a thirty-something-year-old mother of two, wife and full-time state employee, I knew that I would not learn things as quickly as a younger person and of course not be in the physical shape like I was in my twenties.
However, your encouragement and patience have made me exceed even my own expectations. Luckily, it has affected the way I approach every aspect of my life. It has truly taught me self discipline, which carries over to everyday activities.
Every time I receive another stripe or belt it is an affirmation that a person can accomplish almost anything by persistence and sheer determination. Your studio is a very warm and friendly place that I actually can't wait to attend twice a week.
Several people have approached me in the last couple of months about how healthy and young I look and I can honestly give you a lot of the credit. Thank you again for the great training and I have and would recommend this studio to any women looking for self improvement and physical fitness.
"The other students are what makes this school special. The culture here is so friendly."
I've been attending the adult classes for 8 months now and it's been great.
Before joining, I came into this school with no prior martial arts experience. However, that didn't matter here at the academy. The instructors have a great way of teaching. They really break it down for you so that it's understandable. Instructor Kevin provides a good mix of encouragement with constructive feedback.
Also, the other students are what make this school special. The culture here is so friendly.
Fortunately, all of the people I've met in the class are motivated to improve and are extremely helpful when we partner up. Everyone's really patient with each other, so even though the school has mixed levels of experience it works. The advanced students are always willing to help beginners.
If you're looking for a great martial arts school or are on the fence try signing up for the trial program. You have nothing to lose, and a lot to gain.
