DFKanjiWe believe that every student deserves the chance to learn to protect and defend himself/herself, regardless of age, physical abilities, demographic or special needs. 

At Dragon Fire Karate, our focus is in developing each individual student’s potential. We focus on learning self-defense which is the core of our system.  The basic techniques taught in every class build the foundation necessary to defend one’s life, or family member’s life, if avoidance is not possible.  

We believe that Karate is a way of life, and students will learn respect and discipline which they will carry into all aspects of their lives.  Karate increases confidence and self-esteem, and improves coordination, focus and balance, and increases awareness.
