Our Little Dragon’s Martial Arts program focuses on building coordination, balance, and a solid base of the fundamentals of mixed martial arts. Students will learn the basic punches, kicks, and blocks of kickboxing and how to put those together into basic striking combinations. We will also focus on developing good footwork so the student can move their body as to be a harder target to hit.
The basics of grappling are also an important part of the Little Dragon’s program. Students will learn how to get an opponent to the ground through take-downs, controlling different positions on the ground, how to escape ground positions, and how to avoid getting taking down to ground.
All of the kickboxing and grappling is tied into the student’s self-defense training. This is achieved through practicing realistic self-defense scenario drills, light contact sparring, and position grappling with other students under the watch of the instructor.
Student’s will learn to use their best weapon, their voices, against an adult stranger and what to do in an attempted abduction scenario. Students will also learn the following: how to deal with bullies, develop self-discipline, respect for themselves and others, learn to focus and how to be aware of their environment to avoid bad situations.
The Little Dragon’s Martial Arts classes meet Monday and Wednesday at 4:30pm.
