Since 2010 we have been working with and developing students of all ages in achieving their individual goals.
Our instructors use the knowledge and experiences they have accumulated over the years in taekwondo, along with the latest scientific methods in order to work alongside parents and students to overcome the barriers they didn’t know they could, to become the individual they didn’t know they were.
We will show you that hard work pays off and that there are no short cuts to success.

At Dragon Taekwondo we teach students “real life lessons” such as “hard work pays off and you will not get a participation medal for just showing up.” Our students have achieved success at all levels of sports and academics, from International medallists in Taekwondo to training to becoming Officers in the Military. We build leaders by “Lighting the Fire in You!”
This martial arts training is recommended for people who want to take Taekwondo seriously. Whether you’re a competitive athlete who wants to sharpen your skills, a beginner who wants to build a proper foundation for your Taekwondo knowledge, or someone who feels more confident training alongside a few family members or friends, Dragon Taekwondo has you covered.
Boost your endurance, polish those moves, solidify those blocks, and increase the impact of your attacks with this specialized training. It is highly recommended for athletes or those who are passionate about physical fitness.
Sparring sessions should never frighten or intimidate you! Many of our students with no prior martial arts experience believe that sparring classes are meant for athletes or black belts. This is certainly not the case. Being new to Taekwondo should not limit you from practicing your sparring moves. Our highly trained instructors are here to boost your confidence and teach you how safely perform your sparring drills and no-contact sparring.
If you are part of this team, then you deserve a pat on the back! Get ready to represent your city, province, or country in official Taekwondo competitions. With Dragon Taekwondo’s guidance, your dream of becoming a renowned martial artist will slowly come to fruition.
