"Hi, everyone. My name is Dina. I am a student at Dragon Gym. I've been here a little more than two years, and I started after watching my son, Michael, who's in the Extreme class, on the mat for a few months. I was in the balcony and decided that I wanted to join him because it would be much more fun if we did this together.

So we've both been here a little more than two years, and we just love it. We tried so many different sports, and he just didn't like any of them. None of them stuck, and we got here and he just said, I love this.

So sorta funny story on the way into work this morning.

I was dropping Michael off at daycare, and he went to CCD last night, and he said, are you gonna sign me up again [for CCD] next year?

And I said yes, why?

And he said, well, it's kind of boring and they make me focus and read boring stuff, and they make me do what they're telling me to do.

And I said, well, at Dragon Gym, they make you focus and you have to do what they tell you to do.

And he said, yeah, but they're a lot more fun and I can make friends and I can laugh.

And he said, and they really like kids. So I really love it here.

Dragon Gym has just been wonderful for us, and we're so happy to be part of this family."
