Some people worry that enrolling their kids into a boxing class will somehow promote aggression in their child's personality, We have that our kids boxing class actually does the complete opposite. Your child will learn how to control themselves and their emotions from having to do so everyday when sparring. The kids who train here are much, much, less likely to get into fights.
"Boxing is a great way for children to get up and release some of the pent up energy that they develop throughout their day."
All of the frustrations of the day are completely gone by the end of their workout. Just like adults, kids find that hitting the pads and punching bags releases frustration, and feels good.
Boxing imparts a sense of power to your child and also a sense of responsibility knowing that they could possible hurt someone using their skills makes them much more likely to not use their skills outside of our school unless absolutely necessary.
They don't feel they need to improve anything because they are allowed to prove themselves every day in sparring class. Also, they know that there are consequences at our school if we to ever find out if they were the aggressor in a situation
Sparring lets kids RELEASE their aggression in a positive manner.
"Boxing Gives Your Child The Experiences Of Success And Failure And Through These Experience Come Mental Resilience And Toughness"
In today's society kids are babied too much. The life lesson of being able to handle both success and failure in a positive way is one of the most import lesson that parents can impart on their children.
So many kids today think that throwing a tantrum is acceptable behavior. When training in a competitive art like boxing, in an actual match there is a definite winner and loser.
Often, kids tend to think that winning is everything but in class we teach them to be humble when winning and gracious in losing. Your child will learn how to handle the feelings of triumph from success but also more importantly how to deal with the disappointment of losing.
Losing is a great motivation to push themselves to be better and to work on technique even more.
Kids know that whether they win or lose is attributed directly to how much time and effort they have spent practicing and how disciplined they were in preparing for the match.
This very fact alone teaches responsibility for oneself. Every match is an opportunity to both grow as a person and improve as a competitor.
One of the greatest things about boxing or competitive martial arts is that every time you compete you have a chance to become a good sportsman rather than a sore loser In the boxing class, good sportsmanship is a top priority. We teach that winning is not as important as learning from each sparring experience.
"Safety is as important to us as it is to you"
At the Las Vegas Kung Fu Academy, we provide a family friendly and SAFE environment. When the children spar in class, we monitor each one of them to make sure they are having self control and sparring to perfect their technique.
Your child will not only learn the basics and fundamentals of Western boxing, but also how to add in the other traditional martial arts (kung fu, escrima, judo) into their boxing style as well.
Since boxing is an individual sport your child will be able to take things at their own pace and eventually they will start to develop a style that will be based off of their own successes and achievements.
"Boxing is a mental sport"
The most important lesson that boxing will teach your child is the value of preparation. Actions do have consequences. If your child doesn't move quick enough, they don't just "lose a life" like when they play x-box. they actually get hit - and it hurts a bit.
Boxing is a skill that you do not gain overnight. Boxing is something that needs to be practice regularly. Sparring against other kids quickly teaches them that you cannot achieve success without hard training and daily practice.
"Some of the things your child will learn in Boxing class are:"
Here's the story:
When I was a teenager, I started training in the martial arts. 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..
I was staying out late without calling. I was basically a juvenile delinquent. I was a parent's worst nightmare.
Astonishing, isn't it?
Suffice to say I owe my parents a BIG apology!
Anyway, I personally wasn't looking for any of the benefits that the martial arts had to offer.
I just thought it was the coolest thing in the world to be able to actually learn this stuff. It wasn't until I started to progress in the martial arts that I became aware of all of the benefits that martial arts classes had to offer.
My name is Kevin Kawada and my wife’s name is Renee Kawada.
The positive impact that martial arts training had on my life was remarkable.
Because of this, we decided to open our own martial arts school in March of 2004, and made a promise to improve the lives of all our students. We want students to get fit and build up their self confidence the life transforming experience that is martial arts.
We have 2 children. Our daughter is 22 years old and is a Black belt. Her name is Kaitlyn Kawada and she trains at the school daily. Our son is just 14 years old and trains in all of the classes as well.
All of our students get very personalized martial arts instruction and one on one attention. The atmosphere at our martial arts school is both fun AND work oriented.
Please come in and see our school in person! We would love to have you as our next student!

Answer: Yes, of course. Your child is welcome to observe or try a class. Please contact us to schedule an appointment to come in. The trial class is free.
Question: What does my child wear for the trial lesson?
Answer: Wear comfortable clothing. Wearing flip-flops or sandals are the easiest. Our students are not allowed to have footwear on when training on our mats. However, when they do step off our mats footwear is required. We do recommend you bringing a water bottle.

Question: When can I enroll my child?
Answer: Students are accepted throughout the year. Our program is on-going and you can start at anytime.
Question: Can I enroll my child in martial arts even if they are not very athletic?
Answer: Of course! Enrolling in martial arts will help your child with coordination, flexibility, agility, and strength. Each day your child attends class they will have the opportunity to improve and develop these important qualities. However, children who already have these qualities will grow them even more!
Question: How do I know that my child will stay interested?
Answer: There are 4 main factors to keep your child interested in martial arts.
1)We have a rotating curriculum that we go through. Every week the students are learning various disciplines - boxing, weapons, self defense, grappling. Our curriculum is designed to give students new material to learn that will excite and motivate them through every step.
2)Every April and October we host belt testing. Belt testing is something that pushes the kids to stick with it and remain motivated. Each time a child is promoted to the next belt it excites the child. They are very proud of what they've accomplished and receiving their new belt. With a new belt comes new expectations.
3)Consistency with their attendance. It is important for kids to be consistent with their training on a weekly basis. Kids that are consistent will continue to progress and see an improvement in their martial arts skills. Kids that are inconsistent with their attendance will lose interest and eventually drop out.
4)Parents commitment to their child's training. As long as parents remain committed to their child's weekly martial arts schedule, the child will be able to progress and reach their life goal of obtaining a Black Belt. Throughout the years, we realized that kids don't quit martial arts training, parents do.
Question: Should I practice with my child at home?
Answer: Yes, we highly recommend you practicing with your child at home. In fact, we do ask the children if they've been practicing at home. It's like taking piano lessons. Would you have your child go to the lesson, then not have them practice at home? How will your child remember what they've learned? Home practice is the best way to retain and perfect what they have learned in class. Home practice doesn't need to be long. In fact, 10-15 minutes of home practice per day is sufficient.
Question: Will martial arts make my children more violent?
Answer: At the Las Vegas Kung Fu Academy, children are taught that martial arts are not to be used in anger or madness, but rather to defend themselves in dangerous situations. We try to help an aggressive child develop self control, and a shy child develop confidence. We remind the kids to use common sense and avoid conflict with non-aggressive solutions. However, if a child is in an aggressive situation that can’t be resolved peacefully, he or she will at least have the basic martial arts skills to defend themselves.
Question: Can my child get hurt doing martial arts?
Answer: Martial arts is actually a safe activity. However, martial arts (like any other sport) has its various risks and dangers. We always try to be safe and do what we can to prevent injuries. Kids in football or soccer are more prone to having injuries than a child enrolled in martial arts. Because of the way our classes are taught, most situations that can cause injuries are eliminated. We remind the kids to practice self control when executing a punch or kick. Because of the emphasis on self control, our kids classes are safe and fun. Of course, like in any contact sport, occasional bumps and bruises are possible, but we work our hardest to make sure that they are very rare. From the beginning to the end of the class, the instructors are always keeping an eye on everything that goes on.
Question: Is martial arts fun?
Answer: Yes, it's fun! Our martial arts classes will be the most fun you child can have in one hour. If you watch one of our classes, you will see how our instructors are skilled in taking a basic move and turning it into something fun and challenging. At our school, we camouflage what would normally be seen as hard work (like exercise) into something fun and playful. For example, we have kids doing partner drills, animal warm ups, and practicing with a pair of punching/kicking mitts. Our classes are always a blast. Martial arts are inspiring and life changing, from the mental to the physical. What could be more fun that?
Question: Are the martial arts good for little girls, young teenage girls, and women?
Answer: Yes, it is! Martial arts are not just for boys. We have a good mix of girls and boys in our martial arts classes! Some people think that the boys are much more coordinated and a quick learner. We must throw all stereotypes out the window. Girls are just as coordination, capable, mentally tough, and strong individuals.
Do children's confidence and self-esteem improve with martial arts?
Answer: Absolutely. Kids who are shy or has low self-esteem often come out of their shells. We teach kids how to be confident in many different ways. In our martial arts school, children's confidence increases with each belt promotion, or each time they answer a question correctly, or when an instructor gives them a praise for executing a move correctly. Instilling confidence in a child is not an easy task, but we've done it time and time again.
Question: Does my child need their own equipment gear?
Answer: If your child is enrolled in a trial program, they are able to borrow our equipment. However, when enrolling in our regular program students are required to have their own equipment gears. Equipment are purchased here at our martial arts studio.
Question: Are there any testing fees?
Answer: Yes, testing fees are $55 per student. Testing are held twice a year in April and October. Black Belt testing fee is $100.

"We as parents are there to support him all the way."
"Ever since he has joined the class, which was this year in May, he has kept his room clean and kept up with his chores. That alone is a BIG ACCOMPLISHMENT!
Ever since he has joined the class, which was this year in May, he has kept his room clean and kept up with his chores. That alone is a BIG ACCOMPLISHMENT! He has also joined the Black Belt Club, which is a three year commitment that he made on his own. We as parents are there to support him all the way. We feel if he is willing to make a three year commitment we are. We are very proud of him and are excited for what is ahead. I also wanted to say that his grades have improved tremendously! Thank you for giving him support, encouragement and just the excitement that he has about kung fu."

"You have a way of making everyone feel that they can succeed. "
Dear Kevin and Renee,
Thank you both so much for being so kind to our family and sharing your knowledge with us. Your passion for your gift of teaching others and the way you interact with students is amazing. I am already witnessing amazing improvements in Gene as he goes about his daily routine. You've also given me a priceless gift as well: I feel excitement about learning martial arts, and feel confident that your school is the best place I could ever take instruction. For the first time in my life, I am taking part in a physical and mental fitness experience where I feel encouraged. I was never a stellar athlete, and during high school I was always scolded, discouraged and ignored by my coaches. You have a way of making everyone feel that they can succeed, as long as they have a desire. Thank you so very much and I look forward to the coming year and all of the opportunities and accomplishments you have opened the door to for our family!
Rich, Joy, Gene and Bruce
