Positive Role Models Who Will Encourage Your Child to Succeed

Kids need strong role models who set a positive example for them to follow. Yet, everyone knows that kids can't look up to every professional athlete anymore, so where can they turn for positive examples to follow?

Our answer to this question is our professional staff of caring instructors. We honestly believe our martial art instructors are some of the best role models your child could have.

Experience has shown us that kids respond to our martial art teachers in a way that no other coach or instructor can match. Because we realize how much our students look up to us, we work hard to set a positive example for them by living the martial arts principles of honesty, integrity, courage, kindness, and self-control.

As you know, children are hard-wired to seek attention and approval. So, when kids see positive behaviors demonstrated by our instructors, they are strongly driven to display those same behaviors in their own actions.
Lil Dragons        What is it's target age group?                         Ages 3 - 5
What separates the Lil Dragons program from traditional children's martial arts classes?
We approach the physical portion of this class as a martial arts -- focused physical education class. All skills and promotions are based on participation and course completion. Our primary objective is to get the students involved, giving 100% effort, having fun and 'playing.' Of course, this Lil' Dragon curriculum is age and ability appropriate so that their "play" is actually their "work". The primary focus in Lil' Dragon class is to develop fundamental basics, creating a solid foundation to build upon in the older years. Therefore, we teach very few of the martial arts skills that you will see in older children's programs and instead focus on the skills they need BEFORE entering the older classes

We offer our After School Program with Transportation!                                                  Why After School and Young Adolescents?

Young adolescents typically need a lot of connections to caring adults and community institutions. Although they often ignore or express disinterest in these people and places, we believe what they “really want” is to be treated more like adults. They want to share in more independence and responsibility.

Many of young people desire independence and responsibility; they are often not fully equipped to handle the charge.

A growing area of interest in the US as well as a number of other countries is

the potential for quality after school and summer programs to make more positive

connections and to provide adolescents with extra time to better equip themselves to

handle independence and responsibility while also improving their achievement and


DMAI / Lifeskills provides transportation from the students school to our facility where they are directed in their homework prior to there martial arts class.  We have tutors to assist the children and computer internet access for 15  students .

 Domestic Violence - What...?

Domestic violence may consist of threats, punches or sexual force. The abuse can range from verbal harassment to stabbing and shooting. Domestic violence is a serious matter. It HAS often ended in death or permanent physical injury.

  • Each year 1 million women suffer nonfatal violence by an intimate partner.
  • 4 million American women experience a serious assault by an intimate partner during an average 12-month period.
  • Nearly 1 in 3 adult women experience at least one physical assault by a partner during adulthood.

Most of the victims of domestic violence does not open their heart and talk about the problems they have in their homes, or try to find solutions BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE.

What is domestic abuse?

There are many forms of domestic abuse, ranging from screaming threats to pushing and shoving. Contrary to what many women think, abuse isn't just physical battering.

Domestic abuse may include emotional abuse, economic abuse, sexual abuse, using children, threats, using male privilege, intimidation, isolation and a variety of other behaviors used to maintain fear, intimidation and power. In all cultures, the perpetrators are most commonly the men of the family.

Nearly one in three adult women experiences at least one physical assault by a partner during adulthood, according to the American Psychological Association in a 1996 report.

Domestic abuse does not discriminate against race, age and socioeconomic background. No specific type of woman is more prone to being battered by her partner, nor is one type of woman completely safe from abuse.

What Victims of Domestic Violence Need to Know

  • The abuse is not your fault
  • You don't deserve to be abused
  • You can't change someone who is abusive
  • Staying in the relationship won't stop the abuse
  • With time the abuse always gets worse
  • If you stay, make a plan to keep yourself safe when the abuse happens again
  • You CAN Fight Back and Defend yourself!
