American Dragon’s main purpose is to make a difference in our Students lives. More than attaining physical fitness and practicing self-defense, our philosophy through goal setting is to shape successful human beings, in life as well as in Martial Arts. American Dragon is dedicated to the personal growth of it’s students.
Our instructors share a common goal – to help others reach their full potential. That is what we do best. The Martial Arts were originally aimed toward self-defense and the preservation of life. In today’s society, people come to us from various backgrounds, each with his or her own reasons for wanting to train. This is why we have developed proven teaching and training methods which will help you learn self-defense quickly and easily, while providing a wide range of benefits, such as Discipline, Confidence, Perseverance, Improved coordination and overall health and vitality.
Reinforcing life skills such as Self Discipline, Confidence, Strong self image, is the core of our Martial Arts Program. Our Academy is one of the few places outside the home where these principles are taught. They are the fundamental difference between Martial Arts and any other activity in which your family participates. Our students learn to confront and overcome their innermost fears and doubts. This way they strengthen their character and increase their self-confidence, becoming better prepared to meet their challenges with success.
