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!

‼️UPDATE ◾️ UPDATE ◾️ UPDATE ‼️

📆 Tuesday, May 26th, 2020

It’s only a few days before we are ready to welcome back our members for “new normal” training starting next week. We are hard at work making our facility compliant and here is what we have done so far,

✅ New signage were put on our door and walls to remind our members about social distancing, our hygiene station and safety protocols.

✅ Training pads taped for members to participate in. Each training pad will be slightly larger then the recommended 6’ by 6’ square in order to give our members,

🥊 better freedom of movement in their designated pad,

🥊 more optional drills in which to better challenge our members

and

🥊 unique training pads designated as shadow play, speed play or power play stations, allowing for dedicated skill development for a members in-class session.

✅ Limited Class Sizes based on reconfiguring our training pads now allow for either 8 individual non-household members or,

✅ the use of our training ring as a family training pad will allow for 9 members to train on our facility floor.

❎ For the time being our second floor will NOT BE FOR MEMBER USE as recommended by the regional health board. We hope to have this open in the next phase of facility operation.

‼️ Cleaning time has been reduced to fifteen minutes to allow adequate time for more classes during peak periods of our facilities operation. ON TIME CLASS FINISHES AND EXITING WILL BE ADHERED TO. Please, NO after class congregations will be allowed during transition times between classes.

✅ With summer fast approaching and offering increased daylight hours and better weather we will use our ‘outdoor training area’ as much as possible over the next few months to potentially increase the amount of members participating in every class. WHEN YOU BOOK YOUR SPACE ON-LINE YOU WILL ALSO HAVE ACCESS TO OUR OUTDOOR CLASS. Stay tuned for our on-line booking as,

✅ We are in the midst of finishing our on-line classes and programs reservation and booking program which will be available in a few weeks. The first few weeks of our re-opening will be a soft one with limited classes while our membership starts to reserve their class times and program reservations on-line.

🎥 Our production video for our safe space protocols will be on our page in a few days to demonstrate what our members can expect once we open our doors. THIS WILL BE A MUST WATCH TRAINING VIDEO. 📽

♻️ Cycling With Adaptive Changes. ♻️

With another change comes more adaptation. Some parents have inquired if it’s still feasible to watch their children during their class sessions. The answer is as follows,

❎ For the time being parental viewing of their children inside the facility is not allowed due to the limitation of persons being accomodated inside. With the regional health board recommending a certain amount of trainable space per member in maintaining social distance, the main training floor will only allow for members participating during classes. With this as the new normal we have offered the following solution,

✅ Since we are approaching summer, 🌞 parents may be able to observe classes from the outside vantage of any of our windows in which to peer inside. 😎 We suggest that parents bring their own lawn chair(s) in which to view their children after the entry protocols have been met. REMEMBER that your children may be allowed entry up to five minutes before their designated class so PLEASE BE ON TIME. ⏰

❎ With limited class sizes of only 7-8 members per class we have also adapted to the use of our “outdoor training space” 🚦to allow for more members to participate (up to 12-16) within the social distancing parameters allowed by the regional health board by,

✅ Informing our members daily through our facebook social media account of our outdoor classes. This will take place once we have the necessary protocols in place to do so.
A training video 🎥 will be made for our members to view on how such outdoor classes will be had. Regulations and protocols will be included on this training video soon. Outdoor classes will be for various childrens, teen and adult programs weather permitting. 👍

⛩ We are doing our best to give you all the safety measures, adaptive changes and continued pre-cautions to return with confidence.
