Teaching Methods

Our curriculum from the World Headquarters in Korea will build physical ability through martial arts, but the true value comes from the positive transformation that occurs in all of our students.  Here we teach young people all the skills they need to excel at school, at home, and in life! We work to instill confidence and respect, so that the benefits extend beyond our four walls.

Families just like yours are giving their children (and themselves) the advantage of American Dragon Martial Arts Academies’ self defense, Taekwondo, and Hapkido programs!


Each month our Master instructors focus on one unique character quality, helping students to develop these important traits.


As students participate in class, instructors help students to develop the confidence to speak up for themselves against unhealthy peer pressure.


Through practice and skill-building, students gain the ability to stay focused so they can set and achieve their goals.


Practice and mat chats develop self-discipline in students, so they do the right things on their own without being reminded.

The American Dragon Martial Arts Difference

We are proud to be one of the few schools in the nation to have fully licensed, certified instructors teaching the official requirements. This factor is what separates the American Dragon Martial Arts Academies from every other school in this country, because unlike most schools in this country, our training curriculum is approved by the world headquarters in Korea. Our program was developed by the world headquarters in Korea and includes all the techniques and training that has been passed from Master to Master for over 2000 years!

Each unique session is designed to teach new advanced techniques, while building on the strong foundation of practice and reviewing previously learned information. This pre-planned, comprehensive curriculum, an American Dragon exclusive, will ensure that each student receives the highest quality instruction available, thereby providing the student outstanding results at every belt level.

Family Focus

At American Dragon Martial Arts, we focus on the whole family, encouraging all members to be involved and participate.  We have classes for adults and children, and we also provide mat-side seating for parents who want to watch their child’s progress.

Character Building

We believe in building the whole person: body, mind, and spirit.  Because of this, we take time during each class to emphasize different character qualities like honesty, integrity, patience, and courage.  Our curriculum is age-appropriate and helps children understand how to develop and apply these traits in everyday situations.
