Martial art: Karate
Of course we make it top of our own list! Teaching karate for kids in Las Vegas is our honor. We invest in the overall well-being of all of our students and their families. For us, karate isn’t simply about learning the movements and forms, it’s about adopting life skills and a code of principles to live by. Namely focus, discipline, respect, control, teamwork, family, manners, coordination, setting and achieving goals, and confidence.
Martial arts: Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu & Muay Thai
We rate our Tribe Vegas for its explicit commitment to teaching kids life skills. At the beginning of each class, the children recite a creed in which they promise to show respect, compassion, and understanding both inside and out of the class.

Shaolin Kung Fu Chan
Martial art: Kung Fu
Master Shi Xing Wei is a Buddhist monk who studied the art of Kungo Fu in a Shaolin temple. As such, he is deeply committed to the culture surrounding kung fu, and lists his martial ethics on his website: respect, humility, loyalty, trust and righteousness.
Tips for finding a family-friendly martial arts school
- The best way to find a martial arts school is through a referral. Do you know anyone with a kid in a martial arts school? Ask them about their experience.
- Your second-best option is to read Google reviews. Try to find a school with more than a couple dozen reviews so as to ensure they are genuine, and not just written by the owners and their friends!
- Choose a school that explicitly states its commitment to developing well-rounded children. Training children in martial arts requires expertise and a high level of responsibility.
- If you’re still concerned, ask to sit in on a class. Most schools will be ok with you sitting on the sidelines to get a feel for the lesson and teaching style.
- Once your child has started training, watch for changes in their behavior and attitudes over time. Are they more respectful or less? Do they lash out more often or less frequently? Of course, there could be other reasons for changes in your child’s behavior (adolescence being what it is) but it is something to consider if you have concerns about the school your child has enrolled in.
