Arriving at Their Dragon Location
When your child arrives at their Dragon Before and After School Milton location, they will be met by another Dragon Staff Member to ensure their safe arrival and entrance into the facility. Upon entry, ALL students have their temperature taken, hands sanitized, and then head to their own designated desk.
The Dragon Before & After School Program believes education is as important as physical literacy. This is why each student is given time to complete their homework during their stay with us. Our trained and certified staff are always available to provide homework assistance if needed.
Increase Self Confidence
Increase Self Confidence – Through developing the skills in the art of Taekwondo and through consistent regular practice, students gain increased self-confidence and self-assurance. This self-confidence translates into all aspects of a students’ life, leading to better overall health and quality of life.
Martial Arts is the shaping of both physical and mental discipline. Regular practice and concentration sharpen the mind and body, increasing student’s emotional and physical ability, which in turn helps individuals take on greater challenges towards being more successful in life.
Physical activity 30 minutes a day, 2 to 3 days/week, has proven health effects including decreased likelihood of stroke, cardiovascular disease, increase in metabolism, which in turn reduces weight, and increases energy. This leads to an increase in productivity and creativity.
The ability to defend oneself is one of the best ways to strengthen an individual’s self-confidence. Students learn the foundations around defending themselves and exercise self-control, as well as Bully Proofing.
Improve Concentration & Focus
With gradual daily martial arts training, students work towards becoming more proficient in martial arts techniques. Regular training increases focus and concentration by learning simple concepts that are introduced at a gradual pace. Instructors build on these skills by adding more complex concepts and reinforcing and practicing existing skills over time.
Students participate in daily warming up, stretching, and building strength around muscles with regular practice. Increased flexibility leads to a healthy body and reduces the risk of injuries.
Respect for Self & Others
The essence of martial arts is respect for oneself and respect for others. Taekwondo practitioners are taught character development following the 5 Tenets of Taekwondo, one of which is respect. Participants are also taught to observe and practice martial arts etiquette, which includes respect for Self, Parents, Masters, and teachers. This then carries over into daily life and into the community.
In these days of smartphones and electronics, Dragon Taekwondo Academy’s highly sought-after before and after school program encourages students to be active with both structured and free play activities. With a strict NO ELECTRONICS policy, Students learn important social skills such as communicating, teamwork, conflict resolution, and problem-solving. Our world-class Martial arts classes in a structured environment, in addition to the unstructured time to complete homework and play in a safe, clean, and supportive environment, is the perfect combination for the successful development of future community leaders.
