About Dragon Taekwondo Academy

Since 2010 we have been working with and developing students of
all ages in achieving their individual goals.

Our Mission is to
unlock your full potential

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.

Dragon Taekwondo Academy has been Milton’s #1 choice for martial arts instruction for almost 10 years and now we are very excited to serve our customers in Oakville. Please click here for more details about the new Dragon Taekwondo Academy in Oakville. Our commitment to helping each individual student achieve their goals is what sets us apart from our competitors.

Our team of instructors and staff adhere to the values of Hard Work, Dedication, Commitment, Honesty and Fair Play, and working with parents, we teach the same values to our students.

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!”

Personal Training

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.

High Performance Strength and Conditioning

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 Classes

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.

Taekwondo Poomse Classes

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.

Family Classes

Are you looking for the perfect weekend, holiday, or summer activity for your family? Why not try out our family martial arts sessions! Dragon Taekwondo’s family-friendly facility is the best place to learn a new skill together with the people you love the most. Whether you choose to help or laugh at each other, the most important thing is that you are having fun and building a stronger bond as a family.

Summer Camps

Our Oakville and Milton summer camps teach your children lessons for life that will stay with them far after they’re done with camp. Our program will help your child learn the basics of taekwondo, boost their confidence, and help them build friendships with kids they might not normally meet at school. Dragon’s camps are led by staff who are experts in all our games, activities, and courses. Find out more.
