VMA thrives for the Little Dragons program to be based on life skills, on lifelong learning skills.
For example: valuable pre-school lessons such as confidence, courtesy, respect, and self-discipline. Children develop and enhance these life skills as they grow as individuals and advance in our program. As well, as applying every day skills at home and school. A clearly noticeable and positive difference in your child’s outlook, attitude, and behavior can be expected after just a few classes in our amazing Little Dragons program.Healthy Habits Start EarlyKids today are constantly exposed to so many distractions that their senses can get overloaded. More screen time and less street time can lead to detachment from others, and the lack of physical activity can lead to health problems. In our programs, kids are active and engaged with others around them in a fun and friendly environment. This fosters the social development they need to work with others, and do well in school and beyond.
Teens & Adults
Training for the Real World in our Martial Arts for Teens and Adults class, students learn real life practical applications as well as a system to help them manage the stress that comes along with life’s daily challenges.

In class, students continually practice and improve techniques they are taught along with a strong emphasis on fitness that is challenging for individuals at any level.
What can you expect from our Karate Kids program?
Increases Self-Esteem and Confidence
When a child masters a new skill or move it will boost their confidence and gives them a real sense of achievement. Working their way up through the ranks also shows that hard work pays off and they have something to be confident about.
Martial arts will help to teach children the art of self-discipline. All too often in the modern day children are accustomed to getting what they want when they want. Martial arts teach restraint and patience.
Sometimes in the modern day, children find it hard to respect authoritative figures however martial arts teaches kids to respect their instructor and each other as they learn the art.
It gets kids away from their screens and off the sofa and encourages them to be more physically active at the same time as having fun. Learning a martial art is a full body workout not only for the body but the mind as well!
A common misconception of martial arts is that they promote violent behavior but in fact it is quite the opposite.Martial arts teach children peaceful, non-violent conflict resolution skills and emphasis that physical altercations must be avoided.
