Little Dragons

The Little Dragons class at LDMA is designed to ease our 3-5 year olds students into our Taekwondo program by teaching them the basic stances and techniques while working with them on their flexibility, coordination and balance. We feel this class is an important stepping stone for our younger kids to get use to the structure and discipline of our Taekwondo program until they are old enough to move up to the beginning class.

I’ve watched my son mature and become more confident in himself and his abilities. TKD has done that for him. Thankful for Danny Dring and Anthony Pickard for the investment they’ve made in my son.

Taekwondo

The beginning Taekwondo class at LDMA typically includes children anywhere from 5 to 12 years of age and focuses on physical fitness, balance, flexibility, patterns (a preset series of movements designed to mimic a combat situation), striking and respect for classmates, instructors and seniors.
At LDMA we take answering up seriously and as such it is not uncommon to hear a loud chorus of “Yes Sir!” ringing throughout the school. As the student moves up through the ranks they are promoted into the advanced class where they begin working on kickboxing and free sparring while continuing to learn their patterns.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program for the kids focuses on movement exercises, drilling positional techniques with a partner and live sparring on the ground known as “rolling.” On the front end the kids learn how to escape from bad positions such as mount (someone sitting on top of them) or being head locked as well as how to achieve a good position and maintain it against someone actively trying to escape. As students progress in their training we begin to work on takedown and takedown defenses, as well as submission holds. All of this is done in a safe and fun environment that leaves kids anxious for the next practice.
