"3 reasons why your teenage child should enroll in martial arts"
The first reason is to give them a chance to be their true selves.
My name is Instructor Kevin Kawada and when I was a teenager I started out in martial arts. I was just 16 years old and a sophomore in high school. My best friend and I joined the local Kempo Karate school, and we just loved it. We would go 3 times a week and train hard.
I credit that initial Karate school with developing my love of the martial arts.
Anyway, the reason I wanted to share that story with you is because that Karate school made me into what I am today, both a teacher and a mentor. That school changed how I viewed myself, It made me think like a martial artist. It made me believe that I was going to live that lifestyle forever.
Because of this I was able to walk the path of the straight and narrow. When my classmates and peers would ask me if I wanted to go out drinking I would reply with "Sorry, I can't I am in training." I really believed it.
I missed out on a lot of parties in high school but I did not care. I was much more interested in what kind of techniques would be taught at the next class.
This is our goal for your teen.
The ultimate goal of our martial arts classes for teens is have your child change the way they see themselves. We want to change their identity. We want them to think of themselves as martial artists.
When a peer asks them if they want to try and take a shot of vodka, we want them to respond with "Sorry I cant, I am in training."
"Second You are surrounding them with extremely motivated like minded individuals"
Your teen can get involved with other teens that share similar goals. Just being around and interacting with other teens who are motivated is not to be underestimated. It's sort of like being on the state high school championship football team, everyone is excited just to be there.
This is the secret to training teens.
Class cannot be like the military, although I know some parents would like to see that, the culture at our school is more casual and definitely conductive to your teen making lifelong friends.
The teen class has to be a social outlet, somewhere where it's like an oasis or safe haven for them to be their true selves.
"Our 6 pm teen class has some adults training in there as well."
In this age of instant communication many teens feel more lonely and isolated than ever.
Here's the story...
A long time ago in America's past, school rooms would be filled with kids of all ages. It is only recently that school have become separated by grade levels in order to make teaching easier for the instructor.
Can you imagine being around kids in school who all have the same level of wisdom as everyone else?
Wisdom cannot be gleamed from someone your own age. It is always the elderly, the oldest of our tribe that have the life wisdom to impart.
It used to be that children would be raised by the community. Kids would interact with elderly as well as kids much younger than themselves. Today because kids are constantly surrounded by other kids just their own age every little thing that happens becomes a big deal. For example let's say that you didn't know that high top shoes were out of fashion this year and you wore them to school and got made fun of. Now imagine if this was constant? It can really affect your teens self confidence.
Now imagine if your teen were regularly interacting with other adults, High level professional who are leaders in the community? Would they have perhaps a different perspective on how cool their shoes are or are not?
Wouldn't you like to have your teen know how to communicate with adults like and adult? How would you like them to carry themselves with such maturity that you get compliments on how well raised they are?
By expanding their personal network to include positive adult role models you will definitely be setting them up for success later in life.
"We don't want to be just another activity, we want to be your partner in parenting."
"Some of the things your teen will learn in martial arts 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.

"We chose the Kung Fu Academy because it was so clean and the instructors were really friendly. We had a good vibe from here."
The Las Vegas Kung Fu Academy is a wonderful all around school.
We were looking at a a couple of different martial arts schools when we first moved to Las Vegas. We chose the Kung Fu Academy because it was so clean and the instructors were really friendly. We had a good vibe from here.
I initially thought that it was a bit on the expensive side but after we looked around there were no other schools that really compared.
There is a lot of different disciplines to train in, from JKD to to Judo, and even lion dance.
This is the kind of studio that you should not expect get your black belt anytime soon. They don't promote you unless you are actually ready. You have to train long and hard in order to get good. This place takes their martial arts seriously.
Instructor Zak is fantasitic. He is caring and enthusiastic when teaching the kids. All of the instructors have a sense of humor and they always have fun in the kids class. I think they are all young at heart.
There is nothing but positive energy in every class, and my son just loves going every day.
If you are looking for the BEST, give the Las Vegas Kung Fu Academy a try you won't regret it.
"I can’t was a phrase that I had gotten used to saying about my life. "
My kiddo has been taking classes at the Las Vegas Kugn Fu academy since February and I can't rave enough about it.
I recently asked my son what he thought of classes and he just said one word "AMAZING"
When my son first asked to take karate, I was a little hesitant. I guess you could call me an overprotective mom. After talking to the instructors, I felt at complete ease knowing the my child would be safe.
All of the instructors give great guidence and instructions. All of the other student are very supportive and always try to help out.
Because our son is home-schooled we need someplace where it was't just about self defense but where he could make friends as well.
I have noticed a huge difference in mys son's confidence level since joining and it has really been a life changing experience for him.
It's been an incredible experience so far and this place has exceeded all of our expectations.
