Our award-winning children’s program is for those aged 7-13 years of age  (level 1) and 14-17 years of age (level 2) . The kids go through a series of curriculum sets which were specifically created to develop the child’s, self-esteem, confidence, self-discipline, leadership skills, and overall health, disguised within a fun curriculum. Studies have shown that… Kids who learn self-defense become more assertive and less aggressive. And also, kids who know how to defend themselves typically don’t have to since they carry themselves in a more confident manner. Most important “ Keeping your child active will help him in many areas not just with their health but will help them to be better students too.”

Would you like to see your children healthy and confident with a lifelong love of self-improvement?

Our Lil’Dragon’s Elite Martial Arts program is an award winning curriculum that is designed specifically for children ages 5 – 12 years of age. We will teach your child to be a good citizen, and an active, healthy child. An environment that guides your child in the direction of collaboration, respect, achievement, and self-control will help your child become well rounded — developing your child’s social, emotional, physical and intellectual capability. It is a three-pronged program; motivation, teamwork, and self control, each making up the three legs necessary for life’s precious balancing act.

We have great classes geared to take your child’s current level of fitness and flexibility to a level that will empower them to accomplish goals far outside the realm of the martial arts class. They will learn how to defend themselves in all aspects of age and gender specific situations. From standing aspects, ground strategies, peer pressure conflict resolutions and STREETSAFE adult predator situations, we have them covered. Your child will learn age and gender appropriate skills from boxing, muay thai kickboxing, jiu jitsu, taekwon do and wrestling. NO time wasted learning forms or patterns. Only an emphasis on training your child to be the best they can be mentally and physically.
Our Lil’ Dragon’s Program,

Your child will learn:

Skill #1: Focus – Your child will develop improved listening and reaction skills, as well as at an earlier age than most, develop an advantage in learning her/his body’s relation to space, and how to feel confident about her/his physical capability. With the ability to focus, coordinate and balance the physical self in space, your young one will excel faster in physical activities, and therefore gain confidence, especially when it comes to focusing and listening in school.

Skill #2: Memory – “Tell me, and I’ll forget, show me, and I’ll remember, involve me, and I’ll understand”. Developing good memory is exercise for your child’s brain. The more your child does activities that involves the physical being in space, the better are the results both physically and cognitively, and she/he will develop at an early age habits of analytical focus where physicality and space are involved, which is a majority of your child’s lived social experience. Not only will your loved one develop concentration and coordination, and avoid the embarrassment of clumsiness, they will develop an intimate understanding of their social space by considering themselves involved in that social space.

Skill #3: Self-Control – Self-control guarantees self confidence. Having control dictates that your child will develop a predisposition to make good decisions. In addition to this, eventually, regardless of the difficulty of the situation, your child will acquire the confidence to know the right decision will be a well-thought-out one; they will also acquire the self-assurance to ask someone of expertise for good advice when in doubt. Self-control builds confidence, and confidence builds tomorrow’s positive role models.

Skill #4: Teamwork and socialization– This we feel is the most important skill for a child to develop at an early age. This life skill promotes understanding, compassion, sharing and encouragement. The more confortable your child is working with others, the more he or she will succeed. A child will learn that what they contribute to their social space shapes their social setting. If they collectively contribute what is good to the social pot today, tomorrow they will reap the rewards of an uplifting social setting.

Yes, martial art training with us can do all of this for your beloved children!

Dragon’s Den Elite Martial Arts believes every child is gifted in unique ways. However, some children will only take on tasks where they are certain to do well. Our job is to encourage the children to challenge themselves, and to treat each task, not as a fail or succeed situation, but as a learning experience that can only help in the bigger, more important conquest that they may come across at a crucial point in life, where the two Cs (commitment and competence) displace wishful thinking or luck.

True self-esteem is created when a child is confident. This is achieved not just through accomplished tasks, aquired skills and witnessed progresses through stages of development, or through having confidence in one’s ability, but also understanding that learning is a life-long journey. Once a child recognizes her/his development, he/she will be proud.

At the end of one month your child will be different, and at the end of six months, your child will become different in profound ways.

Our goal is to ensure that your children are disciplined, in great shape, confident in themselves, not allowing themselves to be bullied, and grow up to be fine young men and women. And we have been celebrating our contribution to the community going on 24 years!

Saturday Night Special 57 at Griffin’s BAF is in the books with some great bouts on tap tonight. Our boxing program (Ocean City Boxing) learned where we stand in the AIBA heirachy both within Boxing BC and on the national scene with an interprovincial matchup as the main event between our very own Josh Wright and Alberta’s James Jung, the 2017 Canadian National Bronze medalist.

Congratulations to junior member Joseph Brown who posted another great showing against an older opponent with more bouts. A slow start in the first ended with with a flurry of punches and great body shots as a finish in the third.

Josh’s performance tonight was a haphazard one to say the least as his earlier opponent from November 18th did not show (after Josh dropped ten pounds to make the bout happen). Then on short notice Josh had to gain the weight back to make tonight’s bout (all in a week and a half). Considering the circumstance Josh gave a valiant performance and has a lot of intel on what he will need to work on for the Provinicial Championships in February 2018, just a few months away.

Thanks to all of our members, their families and friends who came down to support our boxers. Prosequi Victoriam.

A special thanks to member Tomas Hansen for getting some great shots during the action laden bouts.
