The Mini Dragons program based on Tang Soo Do, a traditional Korean martial art. It is specifically designed to help preschool children grow in a variety of important areas. The lessons are built to enhance a young child's physical, social, and mental development, positively channel their growing energy, encourage curiosity, and build a life-time commitment to health, safety, and respect. Although the structured play component may be perceived as fun to the child, all activities are designed as preparation for the regular karate program.
