Dear Parent and Potential Martial Arts Families:
Thanks for your interest in the Dragon Gym Community!
Founded in Exton over 47 years ago, Grand Master Goh opened Dragon Gym with little more than a vision and a burning desire to bring the Martial Arts lifestyle to the western world. We are now one of the oldest and largest schools in America. The school is currently owned and operated by Lawrence Beck, Chris Taylor and myself. We have trained together in Traditional Martial Arts since childhood and have each dedicated ourselves to serving the community by spreading the benefits of martial arts in this modern era.
Most frequently I find that parents who bring their children to our Dojang do so for the building of confidence, discipline, and self defense skills for which the Martial Arts are well known. Allow me to summarize the nature of our program.
Our students learn the process of goal construction, how to create and attain achievable, valuable goals. Our methodical and interesting approach cultivates a mindset of goal orientation and provides an evenness of temperament, a unique state of emotional control that is absolutely essential for the attainment of greater, more complicated goals.
Our students know how to succeed. Our philosophy affirms and fosters the values of patience, wisdom, respect, civic mindedness and, most importantly, the primacy of the family. Our students know the joy and value of a strong commitment to parents, siblings, and extended family members. Lastly, our students will enjoy a level of health and fitness that will lead to a sound and strong body. We would like to invite you to participate in one of our programs and see for yourself how Dragon Gym can help make a difference in your family’s life.

Sincerely,Master Somnath Sikdar
