They are proud to continue this rich martial arts tradition and continue to share the benefits of martial arts to the people of west chester.
Since the 1970s the martial arts school has evolved from teaching Tae Kwon Do, Tang Soo Do and Hapkido. In addition to those traditional martial arts we now offer Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai Kickboxing Classes. We also offer Russian Kettlebell and Power Yoga Classes.
When adults and kids learn martial arts, they study things like self-defense, blocks, kicks, strikes, boxing, throws, takedowns and grappling. However, they also learn much more. They learn about positive mindset, discipline, humility and friendship. These four pillars are the crux of the martial arts system at the Dragon Gym.
Some highlights of the Adult Martial Arts training at the Dragon Gym just minutes from Downingtown, PA.
The traditional martial arts program at the Dragon Gym is headed by Somnath Sikdar. The approach is traditional not dogmatic. It is traditional in the sense that we train martial arts for the sake of training martial arts not for competition, self-protection, or fitness specifically. Of course, these are often goals and / or benefits that each student will reap. However, we don't do things because that's the way they've always been done. We incorporate what makes sense from both sports science and a variety of martial arts.
