World class instruction and professionalism make this THE place to enjoy a positive and rewarding martial arts experience. You can trust the staff to be extremely knowledgeable and share not only the skills of martial arts, but the values. Our family has a lot of respect for the sincerity and integrity of this group. We highly recommend this school - you just can't find better.

We love this class! My son joined several months ago and looks forward to his lesson each week. I’m most impressed with how engaged his teachers are with every student. Week after week, Sensei Daniel and Henry bring a consistently high level of excitement and energy to each lesson. Thanks AmeriKicks!!

My son started at AmeriKick just a little over a week ago and he absoutely LOVES IT!! I've never seen him so focused and purposeful with an activity before. All of the Senseis have been wonderful!! After only 3 classes my son said he's going to do Karate at AmeriKick for the rest of his life! By far the BEST parenting decision I've made in a while!

I can't say enough about our experience at Amerikick. Everyone is professional, kind, patient & encouraging. Our son, Noah, has Autism, so this was quite a challenge for him. The instructors especially went far beyond our expectations in training Noah. You will love this group!!!

Our son began with the 6wk trial in July 2016 (age 3.25), and he has now been there three years. He has worked all the way through to a blackbelt in the Tiny Tigers program, and will be moving up to the Dragons soon as he approaches his 5th birthday. He began as a shy, hesitant, student and is now getting ready to compete in his second tournament. All of the Sensei's are strong athletes (Google them!), and are amazing with the kids. They are fantastic role models, and martial arts is giving my son the confidence and discipline that I am grateful for! My husband and I would highly recommend Amerikick Overland Park to anyone.

5 Sports You’ve Probably Never Tried

Here’s some sports you’ve probably never tried…and maybe never heard of!

1. Toe Wrestling

Just like it sounds…toe wrestling involves two people going toe-to-toe…err…head-to-head!

The unusual sport dates back to 1976, when the Brits were looking to gain a world sports title.

Rules are simple: with socks and shoes off, two competitors interlock their toes and try to “pin” down their opponent’s foot.

Here’s a video to see EXACTLY what we’re talking about.

2. Joggling

Joggling is a competitive sport that combines juggling with jogging. 

In competitions or long term events, most jogglers prefer to use palm-size beanbags stuffed with birdseed because it’s light enough for long distances but heavy enough to withstand winds.

3. Karate

The ancient art has been in the United States since 1945 (it was created long before that).

Most people in modern society use martial arts not only for self defense but other aspects like fitness, self-esteem, and concentration.

You can learn more about it by clicking here.

4. Wife carrying competition

Originating in Finland, men enter wife carrying competitions, in the hope of winning the weight of their partner in beer. Finnish couple, Ville Parviainen and Janette Oksman (pictured), won the race last year.

5. Extreme Ironing

The official explanation of Extreme Ironing via the Extreme Ironing Bureau is that it’s “the latest danger sport that combines the thrills of an extreme outdoor activity with the satisfaction of a well pressed shirt.” Ironing boards are taken to virtually anywhere you can think of: caves, forests, waterfalls, out on kayaks, and into New York City, and the competitors…iron. The sport originated in Britain, and has actually gotten a surprising amount of media coverage
