  • I wanted to start some form of martial arts for a couple of years but struggled to find the time between a busy work life and not wanting to take any time away from the family

    I wanted to start some form of martial arts for a couple of years but struggled to find the time between a busy work life and not wanting to take any time away from the family. However, with the kids training at DG, it created an opportunity for all 6 of us to train and spend time together with some common interests and goals. It started with our 3 youngest kids, followed by me and our oldest daughter, and then Sandie doing Tae Kwon Do. This was followed by 5 of us doing BJJ too. It is worth mentioning that I think we have been able to sustain and increase our interests over the past several years because of the people at DG. It is definitely a family and there is no other environment like it.

  • Starting to train TKD and BJJ at Dragon Gym was one of the best decisions of my life

    I think starting to train at Dragon Gym was one of the best decisions of my life, my kids had been training for several years and I sat in the balcony, I made some friends up there watching the kids BUT the moment I stepped on the mats (black at first for kettlebells and then the gray for TKD and then BJJ) I made great friends more like family. It is extremely intimidating to step on the mats but everyone welcomes you, everyone has been there too. Besides the family I have made I am healthier, showing my children that health and exercise is important at all ages, you can achieve anything you want to but I also I train alongside my family. This fall Abbey and I are training for an all women’s jiu jitsu tournament. So to all the parents on the fence (or balcony) you will not be sorry, come on down!!!!

  • The instructors are amazing, very friendly and helpful

    Dragon Gym is truly a family. You feel welcome from day one, and everyone is happy to help you learn and grow. The instructors are amazing, very friendly and helpful. As someone who didn't really have the drive to focus on fitness, it was great to find a place and people that made me actually want to make that an important part of my life.

  • “The second you walk in the door, they make you part of their family, and to be honest, it makes you never want to leave.”

    I absolutely love training at Dragon Gym. The coaches are extremely knowledgeable and have a talent for teaching the mechanics of each drill, exercise, or technique in a positive and accessible way. I also love that I get to train side by side with a great group of fighters from diverse backgrounds, ages, genders, and skill levels.

  • “It offers a community where you will make friends who will help you accomplish your goals every step of the way.”

    My family joined Dragon Gym a little over a year ago. I currently train in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) and kickboxing, and my daughters are in the taekwondo program. I’m 37 years old.  In the last year, I have accomplished things I would never have imagined I could have done. I lost 40 pounds; I’ve run a 5K; and I’ve competed in two tournaments. I haven’t been in this good of shape since before college. Dragon Gym has incredible instructors across a variety of programs to help you reach your goals. They have taekwondo, kickboxing, BJJ, yoga, tai chi, and even a certified kettlebells program. Whatever your fitness goal, they have a program that will meet your needs. But Dragon Gym is more than a gym; it’s a community. The Dragon Gym family is incredibly kind and supportive. We’ve made great friends here, and we enjoy coming out to the gym not just to work out but to see people we enjoy spending time with. There are a lot of places you can go to work out, but Dragon Gym offers so much more than that. It offers a community where you will make friends who will help you accomplish your goals every step of the way. I’m proud to be part of the Dragon Gym family.    Fill out the form to the left to find out how martial arts like brazilian jiu jitsu and tae kwon do could be the best choice you make for your health and fitness.

  • “The second you walk in the door, they make you part of their family, and to be honest, it makes you never want to leave.”

    This place is one of a kind. The second you walk in the door, they make you part of their family, and to be honest, it makes you never want to leave. The instructors are always encouraging their students and not only teaching them the ways of martial arts, but they also teach you the discipline to be a better person. I cannot thank Dragon Gym enough for giving me the opportunity to make new friends, being around people who are always pumped up and happy, helping me lose weight, and just being a better person. I look forward to many many more years at Dragon Gym!   Fill out the form to the left to find out how martial arts could be the best choice you make for your health and fitness.
