Disney XD will premiere brand new episodes of "Kickin' It" MONDAY, JUNE 13-THURSDAY, JUNE 16 (8:30 p.m., ET/PT). Throughout the premiere nights, the reality interstitial series "Martial Arts Boot Camp" will take viewers behind the scenes for an exclusive look at the karate training for world class martial artist and series' star Leo Howard and the "Kickin' It" cast.

Reigning Disney XD hit "Pair of Kings" returns for a second season as fraternal twins and royal heirs Boomer and Brady continue their quest to successfully reign over their quirky island nation of Kinkow and become kings of legend. In its most recent original telecast, "Pair of Kings" hit series highs in Total Viewers and its target kid and boy demos, becoming Disney XD's No. 1 original series telecast ever in Kids 6-14, Tweens 9-14 and Boys 9-14.

"I'm In The Band" (9:00 p.m., ET/PT)

Thursday, June 16

"Kickin' It" (8:30 p.m., ET/PT)

· In "Dojo Day Afternoon," when Arthur, the obnoxious son of the owner of the mall, joins the Bobby Wasabi dojo, Rudy bends over backwards to please him. But Arthur rubs everyone the wrong way, and after an altercation with Jack, Arthur's dad insists that Rudy kick Jack out of dojo or he will bring in a wrecking ball and turn the dojo into a parking lot. Rudy proves his loyalty to Jack and the gang by chaining himself inside the dojo.

About "Kickin' It":

Located in a strip mall and run by Sensei Rudy, the Bobby Wasabi Martial Arts Academy is the worst dojo in the nationwide Bobby Wasabi chain and is in danger of closing. But everything changes when Jack reluctantly joins the dojo and meets his new crew -- tough guy and slacker Jerry, awkward yet confident Milton and the lovable, uncoordinated Eddie. Also joining the Wasabi crew is confident martial arts expert Kim. The gang soon realizes their newfound friendship will take them places they never quite imagined and, united, they can become unstoppable.

Starring in "Kickin' It" are Jason Earles ("Hannah Montana") as Rudy, Leo Howard (Disney Channel's short-form series "Leo Little's Big Show") as Jack, Mateo Arias ("Cold Case") as Jerry, Dylan Riley Snyder (Disney's Broadway Musical "Tarzan") as Milton, Alex Christian Jones as Eddie and Olivia Holt ("Black & Blue") as Kim.

Joey Scott ("Growing Pains") is the producer. The series is produced by It's A Laugh Productions, Inc.
