About the Dojang:
Our goal is to provide the young, and the young-at-heart, with the tools to develop their own
journey within the martial arts. Some martial-arts schools tend to focus on particular aspects of
their art, and in doing so lose focus on helping
each individual glean the benefits of a well-rounded martial arts environment; at Dragon Star,
our philosophy is to support each student by focusing on the complete martial artist -- the
physical, the mental, and the spiritual.
The result? Character -- that's what it's all about. The study of martial arts the Dragon Star way
will build character that will become the foundation for a more confident, more self-assured,
more successful person.
There are many reasons to get involved in the martial arts -- almost as many reasons as there
are martial artists! No matter what your reason, the programs at Dragon Star have been
designed to support your personal journey within the martial arts, regardless of your prior
experience or level of ability. The goal of our programs is simple: to help you become the best
martial artist you can be.
Dragon Star Martial Arts combines Eastern philosophy, traditional arts, and modern teaching
techniques to provide well-balanced programs designed to promote personal growth for people
of all ages and abilities. Self awareness, self improvement and self defense are taught in an
educational, innovative, exciting -- and fun -- environment.
