Martial arts for kids isn’t just about kicks and punches; it’s truly an exploration in self-discovery and character development. Beyond the physical techniques, kids martial arts cultivates the invaluable life skills and virtues that shape young minds for their future success. Dragon Claw has boiled it down to our top 8. Now the top 8 are not listed by significance. Because every skill is important. But we will talk about the first one on our list.


What is discipline. I believe people see this word in a vast number of ways.

At Dragon Claw we define discipline as a training that corrects, molds, or perfects the mental faculties or moral character; control gained by enforcing obedience or order; orderly or prescribed conduct or pattern of behavior; self-control.

Discipline is the cornerstone of kids’ martial arts. From day one, children learn the importance of discipline as they follow a structured routine of training, respect their instructors, and adhere to rules. This cultivation of discipline transcends the dojo, impacting all aspects of life, including academics and personal goals.

There are some things that words can describe, but there are other cases where you simply need to experience it for yourself!

Come in and have your kids try a class and experience the difference.
