“Kickin’ It’ is a new Disney XD show that premiered in 2011. Kickin It is a teen sitcom based on martial arts. Kickin’ It is a comedy series that follows a karate instructor at a martial arts academy. The instructor has 5 students and the school is not doing so well.
A few months back Disney announced that ‘Kickin’ It’ will be back for another season that will be filming shortly. ‘Kickin’ It’ is about the Bobby Wasabi Martial Arts Academy. The funny named dojo is also known as the worst dojo in town and the most under-performing of the nationwide chain of Bobby Wasabi martial arts schools.
Bobby Wasabi has a code that goes something like this… “We swear by the light of the dragon’s eye, to be loyal and honest and never say die. Wasabi!”. The group of friends and students in the series try to band together and turn the dojo around.
Kickin’ It stars the following:
- Leo Howard
- Dylan Riley Snyder
- Mateo Arias
- Olivia Holt
- Alex Christian Jones
- and Jason Earles as the martial arts instructor
Casting calls for Kicking It started in 2012 and Jason Earles, (Hannah Montana) was cast in the role of Sensei “Rudy”. Other Disney stars were also cast for Kicking It – Leo Howard (Leo Little’s Big Show) was cast in the role of “Jack”. Dylan Riley Snyder, a Disney on Broadway star from the Disney musical ‘Tarzan’ auditioned for the role of “Milton” and got it.
Some non Disney actors were also cast for the show. The brother of Moises, Arias, Mateo Arias, got a role in the series and Olivia Holt who previously did some commercials was cast for the part of ‘Kim’. Disney newcomer, Christian Jones was picked to play the part of ‘Eddie’. Before this Christian was in a video.
So far the series has been a great success for Disney XD and the shows creator. The mix of martial arts and comedy makes for a great combination and we can’t wait to see where it goes next season.

Hello my name is Zahra, I am very good at acting. I started at age 3. I love to participate in my school plays. I am 12 and I think I got talent. I am a camel belt in karate so I know I can do well.
Hello, my name is Jacob Boucher. My birthday is January 17, 2001. I’m currently 13 years old. I have been doing Kyokushin Karate for one year. Along with Muay Thai, Jiu-Jitsu, Boxing, Karv Maga, and Judo. I’ve taken drama for 1 quarter. I’ve always loved to act though. I also love Kickin’ It. I know that a lot of people have already auditioned, but trust me. You wont regret putting me on your show.

My name is tamia khumalo. I’m from south Africa and I am 15 years old. Acting and singing has been my dream for as long as I can remember. I’ve been searching the internet for well over a year, literally looking for anything to come up. I just find so much joy in acting and singing because it makes me feel good but the best part really is making others feel good. Being a part of this business isn’t about the fame and money but rather the love of what I do and bringing joy to others. My chances are probably non-existent but I’ve got try, I’ve got start anywhere. kickin’ it is one of my favorite shows because its funny but at the same teaches the viewers about friendship, loyalty and dedication. My younger brother watches it too, all the time and I’m glad he’s watching something of such good content. His favorite character is Jerry and he literally goes around the house imitating Jerry’s little victory dance. It would be an honor to star alongside such talented, inspiring people and I know it sounds cheesy but I’d really like to get this for my brother!
I’m tall and slim, I’ve got short black and I’m incredibly athletic, very into sports. I’m willing to learn whatever I need to. I’m hardworking and focused and will do whatever it takes to make my dream become a reality.
