Like every parent, you want a safe and structured Summer camp, great supervision, and something exciting and fun for your child.
Our Summer camps are action packed. At the end of the day, your child will be eager to come back!
Are you one of the many parents that wants

See what other parents have to say about our Summer camps
"Absolutely the best."
The instructors are all top-notch. They are serious about getting the kids proficient, but also keep the class fun with a great atmosphere.
Every one of the instructors have a lot of patience with the kids yet also stresses the focus, concentration, and discipline. Instructor Renee is great with the kids and we often find ourselves laughing at how she and the other instructors can make each class fun.
They are extremely structured and well organized, not like our previous school which had a lot of downtime and the kids would just run around.
I transferred my son here from a different Martial Arts school in the West side of town which I paid the same price for half the number of classes and not even close to the quality of the Kung Fu Academy. Even though its a further drive to get here, it is totally worth it!
Thank you so much Instructors Kevin and Renee!
"We dropped the other summer camps, and just had our kids going here and they loved it."
My daughter is not one for martial arts, she wants to dance and sing and she still had a blast. She came back each day exhausted and full of smiles.
My son thoroughly enjoyed his time, and he's the one it was originally for. We'll be enrolling him in the classes after summer ends.
The staff is very courteous, helpful and caring. They don't care about trophies, pushy sales but a good environment. Their class schedule is pretty interesting, letting us pick and chose which classes to attend so my son won't get bored.
Las Vegas Summer Camps
Dear fellow parent,
How will your child spend the summer? Do you need them to stay busy and not on their tablet all day long?
I know how you feel. No one wants their child to be sitting around the house doing nothing.
What if you could design the perfect Summer for your child?
You want a camp that isn't just loads of fun but can also give your child learn essential social skills, self-esteem independence, and self-confidence.
You want your child to gain all of these traits that will eventually help your child transition into a happy, healthy, well-adjusted adult!
Well, If your child could design a perfect Summer, I know that they would probably include plenty of new friends, new activities to do every day, and a cool place to play when the temperature hits 112 degrees.
If you could design the perfect Summer for yourself, you would stay busy and productive while being assured that your child is in activities where they are learning something of value and are having fun at the same time.
Just imagine being able to drop off your child to Summer camp, every day, from 8 a.m. in the morning to 3:00 pm in the afternoon.
You would finally be able to get to all pesky errands and chores you have been meaning to get to but never had the chance.
Or maybe even…. finally have some time for yourself!
Did We Mention That Our Summer Camps Are More Exciting Than A Sugar Rush?
Here's how the game works, the goal is to knock all of the cones down. Whatever team knocks down all of their cones firsts wins.
The games are instructor lead. Some are competitive. Some are based on a physical skill such as balance and agility. While others emphasize more on teamwork and communication.
In truth, all games require listening and focus.
Nerf wars are a blast! We play a game called medic. This is how the game works. There will be 2 teams and each team will choose a medic. The medic is the only person that can revive people. If you get hit with a Nerf dart you have to sit down.
Nerf wars are one of the most popular games that we have. Some of the games for nerf are - sharpshooter, capture the flag, dual. The competition gets fierce between 2 teams. Nerf is played every Wednesday & Friday in our Summer camp.
STEAL THE JEWELS
Here is a fun game called "Steal The Jewels".
Here's how it works. There are partners of 2 and each pair has there own jewels. One person is the protector, and one person is the thief.
The protectors job is to keep his jewels safe and the thief's' job is to steal the other teams jewels.
This is a great Summer camp game for teamwork and communication.
The kids absolutely love the feeling of being a ninja. Actual techniques for ninjutsu. Ninjas are known for their ability to roll and cartwheel.
First, we teach the forward roll, from Judo. Next comes learning how to break your fall without getting hurt. Ninjutsu is big on evading an opponent. The kids put together their rolls with also evading a punch.
The techniques taught in this part of our camps may benefit them for the rest of their lives.
Over the years we've met and gotten to know many martial arts teachers. Almost every one of them has a unique story about how being able to roll and fall correctly saved them from harm.
Teaching kids social skills may not be as important to some parents as making sure that their child's academics are up to par. Many kids today have not learned basic social etiquette and what is considered appropriate behavior in social situations that they must navigate daily.
Displaying a lack of calibration in social situations is likely to contribute to rejection from group activities and can eventually lead to kids withdrawing into themselves.
I believe that teaching kids how to interact in social situations is a big part of a lot becoming a victim of bullying and can have a lasting effect on their life. Having a strong social circle is important for kids self-esteem and their internal sense of belonging.
One of the very first skills to teach your child is how to make new friends.
In a group setting, children and teens participate in fun and engaging exercises that will prepare them to be well- rounded athletes. Our Kids exercises consist of constantly varied, functional movements that deliver a fitness that is broad, inclusive and general.
The functional movements involve exercises that are fundamental to all things that kids need to do when they play-pull, push, run, throw, climb, lift and jump.
Our workouts will increase physical competence in 10 fitness domains:
Endurance, Stamina, Strength, Flexibility, Power, Speed, Coordination, Agility, Balance and Accuracy.
PADDED SWORD FIGHTING
Who doesn’t love sword fighting? We teach the kids actual techniques from kung fu. Sword fighting lets off a ton of energy.
The kids barely will notice that they are working out hard. The padded swords are soft enough that no one will ever get hurt.
Of course, the kids will still need to wear protective gear. We do padded weapons every Tuesday & Thursday in our Summer camp.
Summer Camp Schedule 2020
Monday - Friday 8:00am - 2:30pm. Early drop off/late pick up available. Needs to be arranged ahead of time.
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!
Whether your child a first-timer or has been with us for years, each day brings something fun and exciting. Friendships are made and our Summer camp is always a safe, fun, and friendly place where kids are free to be themselves.
The 3 biggest benefits your child gets by coming to Summer camp - We teach much more than just kicking and punching
First, let me tell you about self-confidence or self-esteem building. This is the biggest one.
Success is a habit that can be cultivated and nurtured.
The games and activities that we play are set up so that as your child plays them, they become just a bit more challenging every time we reset. Within the games are “mini” goals which are attainable through the exertion of effort.
Slowly, your child will be able to develop the habit of continuous success through little steps and progressions.
We help and encourage them until they succeed Your child’s success and accomplishments are then recognized by giving them praise in front of everyone in Summer camp. When you build the student's self-esteem, their sense of self-worth grows.
Your child will begin to see himself as a competent martial artist and self-confidence comes from competence.
As your child advances in skill every day, their feeling of confidence will advance as well.
An increase in self-confidence for your child will have a cross over effect in other areas of their life. Other challenges in life, both physical and mental, will be met with much less fear.
The next biggest benefit your child gets when they attend our Summer camps is the benefit of self control.
The next biggest benefit your child gets when they attend our Summer camps is the benefit of self-control.
Self-control is the ability to control one’s thoughts, one’s body and one’s mouth when they are out of control.
Your child will not only learn what it means to be self-controlled but will practice it every day of Summer camp.
The very nature of a martial arts class is that it is disciplined. Our camps are no different.
The activities are structured and routine. One of the first lessons your child will learn is how to line up and get ready for class.
During this lineup, your child will be taught how to stand at ease, how to stand at attention, and how to do a stance we call “listening stance”
Our expectations are explained at the very beginning of the Summer camp.
Your child will be able to take this knowledge and apply it outside of Summer camp.
They will be able to go to school and know that self-control means to not talk while the teacher is talking.
The third biggest benefit your child will gain, is an increase in their social skills.
Your child will often have to tap into resources that they never had to call on before.
Your child will learn to get along with new types of people and try out new things. They will learn a drill we call “polite greeting”.
The polite greeting involves 4 parts. The 4 parts are eye contact, firm handshake, a smile, and a script.
The script we teach the children is “Hi, my name is ______” then “Nice to meet you.”
Polite greetings are done every day regardless of whether the kids know each other. We liken it to martial arts practice. In martial arts many times we repeat what we already know to improve upon it.
With the polite greeting, we have the kids practice it so often it becomes second nature to them.
Children who are initially shy and withdrawn will learn the proper way to introduce themselves in social situations.
I believe this skill alone is priceless
Practicing social skills is a daily routine at Summer camp
The first day of Summer camp can be a bit overwhelming. Especially, if your child is very shy.
If they don't know the instructors or they don't know what to expect to be nerve-wracking for a child.
The way your child will get over this is through icebreakers.
At the beginning of every camp your child will learn to greet other campers with a polite handshake.
Your child will feel comfortable from the very first day of Summer camp

The way your child will get over this is through icebreakers. At the beginning of every Summer camp, your child will learn to greet other campers with a polite handshake.
By shaking hands and doing various icebreakers with the other campers every morning, your child will soon be able to remember each student's name. This is the very start of building friendships.
Usually, because this is repeated 5 times a day, your child will meet the goal we set for them, of remembering everyone's names by mid-week.

"They loved every minute of it."
Our sons, then entering 3rd & 5th grades, attended for 6 weeks last summer and LOVED every minute.
We felt that although it was "just" a summer camp, it was so, so much more. Instructors Renee and Isaac were professional and our kids had a blast connecting with them as they are very patient and friendly.
My kids came home smiling and laughing every day.
Thank you so much Instructors Kevin and Renee!
"They really make and effort to know each child."
Our daughter loves going to Summer camps. The instructors are all caring and qualified and really make an effort to get to know each child.
