Why Blue Dragon Martial Arts?

Over the last 14 years we have developed 3 programs, according to age, so your child will get the most out of every class. Our style covers mainly Karate for stand-up, Jiu Jitsu for the ground, and Arnis for weapons. We are also the only place to offer a special "kid friendly" version of 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu and now Muay Thai for kids too! We teach Honesty, Safety and Respect with a modern touch and believe kids can still be kids while they " learn to earn" their ranks at Blue Dragon. Our 2000+ sqft studio in Burbank, Ca. opened in 2008 and offers something for every kid: Karate, Jiu Jitsu, Arnis, Muay Thai, Wrestling, fitness, Parent's Night Out, a climbing wall and more , in an environment for the whole family. Last but certainly not least, we are honest and upfront about all policies and costs! No hidden "sign-up" or membership fees, no hard sell tactics, no up sells, no contracts, just effective Martial Arts in a great space, with an awesome curriculum JUST for kids. Come try a free class today! (ask Sensei Kim about what makes us different and why she decided to open her own school).

Testimonials

"Lil Dragons is a fantastic program for building children's self esteem, discipline and physical strength. Sensei Kim's brilliant, safe and patient instruction promotes pride in oneself while nurturing a keen interest in how martial arts can positively benefit a young body and mind. My six year old daughter has learned a healthy respect coupled with an impressive love for both the Lil Dragons program and for Sensei Kim. " - Jennifer S. Lil'Dragon Parent



"We 'shopped around' and tried multiple dojos in the area. We chose Blue Dragon because it stood out as significantly better in every way and we couldn't be happier with our choice! Sensei Kim is not only extremely talented and accomplished, she is an incredible teacher, she is an inspiration to all. Additionally, the entire staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The other students and families are polite and respectful, as the dojo sets the tone for such behavior and expectations. This is one 'extra' you won't regret but will be grateful for and see the results of everyday." Richard P. Lil' and Blue Dragon Parent



"We love that these guys get that you can't teach kids like they're little adults. They give serious instruction, but recognize that it needs to be fun or kids won't want to stick with it. There's a good mix of martial arts training but also enough games and silliness to keep them hooked in and having fun. We also really appreciate that kids in Blue Dragons learn more than just martial arts, they learn about being better people. Lastly, I have to say that I like how much they both have a great touch with the kids. All our kids at one time or another have been tired, cranky, even had a meltdown on the mats. I've always been impressed with how well they handle that, either by redirecting, giving a quiet talk off to the side, or firmly but gently letting them know they are not behaving and need to sit and get a hold of themselves. The greatest compliment I think I can give someone is that I trust them with my children, and I trust these guys 100%. I know their time in the dojo is always well-spent and that these guys are playing a part in helping them grow into the people we want them to be." - Michael M. Parent Lil' & Blue Dragons and Kid's Jiu Jitsu and Adult Jiu Jitsu



"Our son has been with Sensei Kim for almost 3 years. In an area where martial arts schools are everywhere, Blue Dragon clearly stands out. Sensei Kim has created the perfect combination of quality martial arts training and character development that is specifically designed for children. She truly leads by example, as she teaches technical skill, determination, humility, and respect, all hallmarks of a martial artist. We are happy that these values, which we teach our son at home, are reinforced at Blue Dragon. Sensei Kim has high standards for her students, but gives them the instruction, encouragement, and support they need to achieve their goals. The program also fosters independence and leadership, allowing students to take responsibility for their own training and providing opportunities to be leaders in class and, by extension, in their lives outside the dojo. We are very grateful to Sensei Kim and her staff at Blue Dragon for playing such a positive role in our son's life." - Scott T. Parent Lil' Dragon into Blue Dragon



"My 10 year old daughter Emma started at Blue Dragon Martial Arts when she was 6. Some of the main reasons we wanted Emma to become involved in Karate was to increase her self esteem and confidence, improve on her focus, and offer her challenges. Having girls, we feel they should have the ability to defend themselves if the situation arises. Becoming part of the "Blue Dragon Family" is the best decision we have made. Emma has gained confidence, and is learning the importance of integrity and discipline. Sensei Kim is an amazing role model and a very patient teacher. She makes time to talk to the students and the parents as well. The staff is also very easy going and patient. Besides teaching karate skills, Sensei Kim also teaches the students how to deal with bullying. I am VERY thankful for this, since there is such an increase in bullying these days. At one point Emma decided to "take a break" and try a different sport. There was no pressure at all to come back or hassle about why we were leaving. Almost a year later, Emma decided she was ready to go back and continue her goal of black belt. She was welcomed with open arms and it was like she never left. I truly believe Emma has become more outgoing and gained self confidence because of Blue Dragon Martial Arts.." - Lisa & Sean G. Parent Lil' Dragon into Blue Dragon
