We specialize in teaching men, women, teens, and children in small group settings. All of the instruction is conducted individually with the Sifu within the group setting. Each student is taught at his or her own pace and every class is filled with students of varying skill levels. The Dragon Tiger Kung Fu Center is conveniently located and provides a friendly environment where learning is safe and enjoyable.
The Dragon Tiger Kung Fu Center is dedicated to instilling in its students respect for the martial arts, themselves, and others. High moral character, ethics, and other important qualities are stressed such as honesty, discipline, perseverance, dedication, patience, and kindness.
