Lil Dragons/Jr Dragons
Class designed for the youngest students. Age appropriate lessons that help get them started on their martial arts journey. Ages 5- 7 learn self control, respect and goal setting.
Adults / Teens / Kids
 Classes are setup to help you learn at any age and still be realistic for the individual. Training must be practical but also have your personal goals in mind to ensure long term success 
Great place and knowledgeable instructors. The best martial arts school in Utica.
