KIDS MARTIAL ARTS

Our Kids Martial Arts classes, Karate/Mixed Martial Arts and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu are fast-paced, fun filled, educational, and motivational. Kids love Martial Arts and parents love watching their kids learn and grow in a positive, well disciplined and encouraging environment. Each class is filled with exciting, high-energy drills that are carefully designed for each program to develop important life skills.

I was looking for a martial arts class for my son to help with his balance, coordination, and strength. I was excited to find the programming at Dragon Within. He started out in the Little Dragons program when he was just 4 years old and has participated enthusiastically for almost 5 years now. The children’s programming at Dragon Within has far exceeded my expectations. The
classes have been engaging and have challenged my son to be the best he can be, both physically and mentally.

 

The teaching staff has been phenomenal! They greet each session and student with enthusiasm. They have taken the time to get to know each student on an individual level; both related to their skills within the class, and their interests and abilities outside of martial arts. Miss Jess, and all of the other instructors, have demonstrated excellent abilities both in regards to the skills they are teaching, and their ability to instruct the students in those skills.

 

In addition to my son’s physical development, the children’s programming also has instilled valuable character development.  Embedded in the physical challenges are lessons in respect, responsibility, honesty, and other valuable character traits. 
Additionally, my son has been given opportunities to develop his leadership skills and to participate in community events, fundraisers, and community service. I feel that Dragon Within goes a long way to partner with parents in creating confident, fit, and respectful children and young adults. I highly recommend the children’s and young adults’ classes at Dragon Within.

BULLY-PROOF YOUR CHILD: 
How to stop Bullying and Gain black-belt Confidence!
A recent study found a child is bullied in school every 5 minutes.
That's totally unacceptable.


Bullying — whether verbal or physical — hurts a great deal. It can crush a child's self-esteem and, if unaddressed, can escalate to where it results in severe emotional and physical injury. No child deserves to be treated like this! 

Over the last few years we have learned that a large percentage of our children are affected by bullying and the problem is getting worse.
Bulling can have detrimental effects on a child like stress, anxiety, depression, fatigue, tearfullness, irritability and a host of other debilitating problems. This increased awareness about the prevalence and impact of bullying is an important step in addressing this devastating problem.


Dragon Within martial Arts Bully Proof Program will help your Child Manage Bullying: 
​It will Bully-Proof your child by helping them develop their personal power.

The reality is some children know that they must confront the bully and stand up for themselves, weather it's Verbal or Physical. The problem is that they simply can't follow through for fear of the physical harm. The challenge is how do you instill in a victim of bullying the Confidence to face the one who is Bullying them? If you teach your Child to defend themselves against Physical Attacks, Noble Character, and instilling Verbal Skills into your child then bullying can be avoided.


Here Are Just Some Of The Things That Your Child Will Learn In Our 
Bully-Proof Program
* They will learn how to recognize what a Bully is. * They will learn how to be Confident and have Assertiveness to
​Prevent from being Bullied.

* Empower them with the Verbal Skills to Deflect Verbal Bullying.

* Teach them when it is time to ask for Help.

* Empower them with the Physical Self-Defense Skills and the Confidence to defend themselves if it gets Physical. 


We decided to sign our son up for the "Little Dragons" program more than a year ago after hearing other families share their positive experiences from "Dragon Within Martial Arts".  We have been nothing but thrilled with his journey through the program.  He has grown in self-confidence, due mainly to the instruction of his coaches as well as the structured program that has been provided to him.  He has already learned a great deal about respect, confidence, perseverance, and kindness.  We also enjoy the various programs the center has to offer, such as dealing with bullying, women's self-defense, etc.  I would highly recommend this martial arts program!

My 10 year old son Liam has been a member for over 3 years at Dragon Within Martial Arts. During that time my wife and I have watched his growth and maturity with awe. His ability to handle adversity and challenges has taken great strides because of the fantastic work and wonderful atmosphere that he is exposed to on a daily basis in his martial arts classes. 

Dennis and his staff make it their mission to provide my son with the necessary tools to handle a variety of situations. They have provided Liam with a fun, safe and respectful atmosphere where his talents and love of helping others can grow.
