We have been helping children learn karate in Leicester to become more confident and healthy for over 20 years at our academy in Leicester by teaching them the best in karate and mixed martial arts. We specialise in teaching children how to STOP the bully with our unique anti bullying programme. 


Your child will learn from genuine high ranking, award winning black belt instructors, who are not only experts in teaching children, but are also walk the talk and are great role models. The instructors have competed at a high level of competition and know first  hand how effective the karate and MMA techniques they teach really are.

Kids love Karate and parents love watching their kids learn and grow in a positive, well disciplined and encouraging atmosphere. Each class is filled with exciting, hi-energy drills that are carefully designed to develop important life skills. Classes start simple and gradually become more challenging based on each children's individual pace and readiness for new material. All lessons are based on positive recognition, reward and reinforcement for effort, skill, manners, sportsmanship and respectful treatment of others. Self-confidence and Self Esteem are built in a gradual step-by-step fashion. Martial Arts training builds a strong foundation that can easily be applied in academics, sports, arts and social settings outside the dojo.

Dragon's Karate for kids aged 8 to 13 years old

School Pressure, Peer Pressure, Instilling Proper Values, Demanding Extra School Curricular Activities

Sound Familiar?


I know what parents like you are having to deal with these days. I have met thousands of parents just like you, and I have to say it can be  difficult time being a child these days.


Most parents I meet are dealing with these 21st Century demands as well as they can, but sometimes the signs of the pressure are obvious. When new students come into our classes we often see:


Inabilty to Focus

It's not usually malicious, they just have a really hard time focusing.


Crippling Shyness

Eye on the floor, shoulders down, frozen in fear.


Difficulty in Engaging with Peers or Authority Figures

Parents often see this as a lack of respect ( it's NOT, but it's' still important to overcome)


Lack of Follow Through or Perserverance 

It's really hard for children to see past the "now" and keep at something consistent

It Can all Change

Within a Few Weeks Parents Say

They See Their Children Learn:


Increased Confidence 

Confidence, especially in our karate classes, is the difference between what a child can actually do vs what they think they can do. You will see them act more and more confident and you'll see them take on new challenges both inside and outside of our academy with a sense of drive and purpose.


The Abilty to Defend Themselves Mentally, Emotionally AND Physically 

If your child is ever in a situation were they need to defend themselves physically they will have that ability. Also they will have the techniques, ability and confidence to deal with verbal abuse, this is much more common than physical bullying. 


Soaring Self Esteem

The most important thing your child will get from our karate classes is a tremendous postive sense of self. They will be able to objectively recognise things they need to improve (homework, family relations, physical effort) without feeling hopeless, and they'll take pride in the things they get right without discounting or minimising their achievements.This will be valuable for them as adults.


An Appreciation for Exercise

If you want your kids to stay healthy, they have to enjoy exercise. Our classes are so much fun, your child will love coming to class. They'll actually love doing the press ups, jumping jacks and stretching exercises. They will take pride in their improved flexibility and stamina, and they will leave every class sweating and smiling.
