Self-Defense Classes at Dragon Gym Exton
Dear Potential DG member,
We've been teaching martial arts to the Chester County Community for several decades. Martial arts like Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai, Taekwondo and Hapkido can all be very effective for self-defense and personal protection.
However, each of those martial arts offer more than self-defense. And that "more" is typically what folks love and why they stay for years and years.
We've also found that some folks are looking for shorter path to learn self-defense and be confident that they can protect themselves.
Starting in January of 2019 we will be offering a self-defense specific program. This programs takes the best of BJJ, Muay Thai and Hapkido and eliminates all of the rest. It's a streamlined program that will leave you confident in your abilities after just 8-weeks of training.
It won't be easy, but it is a simple and straightforward program. You are welcome to train in our self-defense course as a stand-alone program or use it to compliment your other martial arts training.
If you'd like to get on the waiting list for this class, please complete the form below and you'll be among the first to get into the program.

This course teaches you...
How to strike - Throwing a punch seems like a simple thing, but it's not. Punch the wrong way and you'll just make your assailant angry and possibly break your hand. We'll show you how you can use your entire body, the right way, so that you can deliver effective hits with your hands and feet.
How to use your legs - This is a critical concept. Whether striking or grappling most of our power is generated from the legs and hips. Most people don't really know how to use them at all. Once you learn, you can use this to your advantage.
How to break grips - It's going down and someone's put their hands on you. If you don't know how to break the grip, they will be able to control you. You'll be taught how to break grips with technique, not strength so that you can escape or fight back if needed.
How to use your hips on the ground - We spend most of our time sitting down or walking on two feet. But, not much time on the ground and especially not much time on our backs. When people hit the ground, they seem like a fish out of water....because, they don't know how to use their hips. We'll teach you how to use your hips and escape to get back to your feet or fight from the ground if needed.
How to clinch - If they grab you and you don't know how to escape, they will control you. But, if you understand the clinch you will be able to both neutralize their strikes and control their movements. You might not be able to run or want to go toe-to-toe with an assailant. Learn the clinch so that you can control them, protect yourself and possibly others.
How to make space and defend your zone - Personal space is everything when it comes to self defense. You'll learn how stand off from an assailant, maintain proper angles for both escape and attack, and prevent an attack from happening at all.
