About Dragon Taekwondo Academy

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

About Us

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!”
