History

Origins of  Dragon Martial Arts Senior Instructors and Dragon Martial Arts founders Mr Jon Cole   and   Mr   Bob   Dhillon   have   a   combined   experience   of training   and   teaching   Martial   Arts   totalling   in   excess   of   50 years between them. Through   all   this   experience   they   had   spotted   a   gap   in   the market   for   a   child   friendly   system   that   involved   martial   arts based   drills   and   games   to   promote   fitness,   general   well being and self defence techniques. That    became    their    starting    point    and    over    a    period    of months a basic syllabus came into being. We   don’t   want   to   alienate   older   children   and   adults,   so   a syllabus   with   varying   levels   of   fitness   and   techniques   is also    being    developed    to    run    along    side    the    core    child friendly system. The   basic   core   system   officially   launched   in   July   2016   and updated    thoughout    2017    for    a    relaunch    in    2018    with added MMA focus and training elements. Dragon Independent Martial Arts Syllabus. In simple terms the basic syllabus is as follows: For ages 4-9 years -      Drills and 4 directional Patterns                                          Self Defence techniques                                          Pad and shield workouts      MMA basics                                          Fitness training For ages 10-15 years -  Same Drills and 4 direction Patterns                                          Enhanced drills and Patterns.                                          Pad and shield workouts                                          MMA basics enhanced                                          1 on 1 sparring drills and bouts For ages 16 and older - All of the above and more intensive                                           sparring and fitness. Our core principles: Knowledge Strategy Execution. Knowledge.    We   give   you   the   knowledge   through   drills   and   training   for multiple    martial    arts    techniques,    fitness    and    well    being principles. Strategy.    Building   on   our   drills   and   techniques   we   train   in   how   to apply our techniques to all situations. Execution.  How to apply all of our training and techniques in real life. And   each   of   thise   principles   work   in   real   life   for   all   goals you    may    wish    to    achieve.    Get    knowledge,    find    a    path (strategy)    to    implement    knowledge    and    form    a    plan    to execute   the   goad.   Simple   as   K>S>E!   Its   a   circular   pattern and   self   repeating.   Once   you’ve   got   to   the   Execution   stage you   have   gained   more   knowledge   that   will   feed   back   into the cycle. Beautifully simple premise that works.
