Ages 9 – 14. Class length, 45 minutes. Students in this age group are introduced to basic principles at a pre-teen to early teen appropriate level of Shaolin and American Kenpo both physically and mentally. This program is great fun for children because it focuses on physical knowledge and development of one’s self and others nearby at any given moment.
We take the same basic principles of Shaolin Kenpo that we teach in the Dragons’ class and “kick it up a notch or two” with this age group’s desire to apply the principles and values taught in self-defense situations. Key characteristics include: focus, respect, self-control, confidence, motor skill development, leadership and physical fitness. We take basic Shaolin Kenpo movements and explain why and how they work. We also introduce American Kenpo into the curriculum which focuses more on concepts of motion and pattern recognition for self-defense situations.
We still make sure that the Youth have lots of fun by incorporating karate themed games into classes. We cover many additional subjects to different degrees, such as: bullying, community, physiology, awareness of their surrounding environment. These subjects and more are discussed as it pertains to how, when and why one would have the right to protect themselves.
Ages 15 and up. Class length, 1 hour. The Adult program is balanced between Shaolin Kenpo and American Kenpo, combining the best of these venerable martial arts. Key characteristics include: self-control, confidence, physical fitness, and self-defense.
This curriculum contains opportunities to learn multiple levels of self-defense, exercise, keep or improve coordination, strengthen the core, mind, spirit, stress relief, physiology and anatomy, principles, confidence, achievement, goal setting and advancement, and more. The class is split into segments of diverse exercise and physical development, martial arts practice, and self-defense.
Have fun while staying fit, active, and learning self-defense. Not everybody’s goal when signing up for marti
al arts is to achieve a Black Belt, but it is entirely possible in our program. We have decades of experience and results to show that you can achieve your goals at Red Dragon.

Ages 5 – 8. Class length, 45 minutes. Students in this age group are introduced to the basic principles of Shaolin Kenpo both physically and mentally. This program is fun for children because it incorporates the fundamentals of basics (such as striking, kicking and self-defense) with their curiosities.
We take the Shaolin Kenpo subjects and characteristics and relate and apply them to the human body, whether it is our own or somebody else’s body. We practice these properties to our advantage in everyday life or self-defense situations. Key characteristics include: focus, respect, self-control, confidence, ability to follow instruction, socialization, motor skill development, leadership, and physical fitness.
We teach that a person’s most important weapon is their voice, and the ability to say something before the need to be physical or choosing to be physical is a priority. We incorporate many fun activities and games into our classes while teaching fundamental principles and values.
