(Let me explain why you MUST come see our program for yourself, it will be the best thing that you’ll ever do for your child.)

Children who attend Blue Dragon School of Martial Arts in Bergen County are destined to succeed in life because we teach them about goals, self-esteem, discipline and persistence at an early age. More importantly, the traits children learn in our unique program will pay off for the rest of their lives! We offer Little Dragon Classes for kids ages 3-7 and Shaolin Kung Fu Classes for kids ages 8-17. There is a reason why The Bergen Record readers voted the Blue Dragon School one of the top 5 Martial Arts Schools in Bergen County:

“I love the Blue Dragon School program. In just a short time I see the development of confidence and a sense of mastery. Andrew loves to practice and ‘show off’ his moves. The principles of the Blue Dragon School – Wisdom – Sincerity – Benevolence – Bravery, and the lessons of kindness and respect are a wonderful reinforcement of what we try to teach at home. Thank you Blue Dragon School.”

Dear Parent:

Every parent wants the best for their child, but how do you prepare them for all the challenges that they face in today’s world? How do you teach them the motivation, discipline and proper attitude necessary for success? It’s not an easy task because this type of education is not found in our schools. It’s not found on our soccer or little league fields. It’s not even found in our community organizations and that’s really a shame. In fact, it’s a crime because teaching children the basic traits like goal setting, motivation and self-esteem, at a young age, can have a massive impact on what that child accomplishes later in life.

Our Program Can Change Your Child’s Life!

You’re probably wondering, how? How could one activity have such an impact on my child? Well, it’s incredible, but true. Kung Fu is not a sport, it’s more of a discipline; one that positively impacts all areas of life. Kung Fu can be enjoyed throughout a lifetime, but can also improve your quality of life!

Our Shaolin Kung Fu Program will arm your child with a host of positive mental and physical skills that will help him in school, at home and in life.

Even if your child is involved in sports, it may not be enough. Recent studies show that programs like ours that focus on personal achievement are vastly more effective than team sports!

In our program, you will see a distinct difference from your typical karate classes and other types of martial arts for children. Our lessons go far beyond teaching children to punch and kick. We work to help build your child’s character. During classes, you’ll see your child’s energy, confidence and spirit rise while she becomes strong and confident. We’re not just talking about physical strength — but the kind of strength it takes to resist peer pressure and other negative aspects of life.

You’ll see a new kind of discipline emerging . . . the kind that will positively affect all areas of her life. You’ll notice an increased respect for others, and most importantly, for herself. The result? A powerful mind/body connection that makes her unstoppable in life! She will learn to succeed!

Fill out the form above or call us for a FREE TRIAL CLASS and you will discover for yourself that there is a reason why busy parents come from from all over Bergen County such as Teaneck, New Milford, Dumont, Oradell, Cresskill and Englewood to enroll their child in our kids’ classes. They hear from other parents that their child gets real value and benefit from the youth programs at our school and what parent doesn’t want the best for their child?

Let me tell you about…

9-year-old Christopher Geller: When his parents first brought Chris in for classes, when he was 5 years old, it was quite a challenge to get him involved. You see, Chris was very, very shy. When his parents would try to leave, Chris would cry and cry. They had a very hard time leaving him and nearly decided not to enroll him. However, they realized that a lack of exposure to outside activities and with other children would work against their child and so they decided it was worth the effort to get him involved.

Recently, Chris was having trouble with a bully in school. Every day this bully, who was bigger and stronger, would instigate Chris by calling him names or making fun of him. Eventually, the bully escalated his actions into pushing and shoving Chris. To Chris, there was no apparent reason for these actions against him. One day while in physical education class this bully took things a step further and approached Chris even more aggressively. Chris was trying to talk to the bully and asked, “Why are you doing this?” but the bully kept coming at him. Well, Chris has now been training with us for a few years. He naturally reacted with some evasive movements. The bully became frustrated that he could not get to Chris and then tried to grab him by the throat, Chris just reacted with a straight kick (the bully’s arms were longer than Chris’ so kicking allowed a longer reach). Chris’ balance and stability was apparent to the bully as he lost his balance. He immediately backed off and Chris has had much less trouble with him since.

Chris’ parents are so proud of him…and so are we!

Don’t take my word for it… read what some of our parent’s have to say:

“Lauren enjoys her class very much. Almost every morning she asks ‘is today Kung Fu Day?’”
Joan Tournoux

“Since training at the Blue Dragon School, Christian has gone from being very quiet to a more confident and outgoing young boy.”
Linda Schroen

Our unique programs here at the Blue Dragon School of Martial Arts are founded on our motto of: Wisdom; Benevolence; Sincerity; Bravery.

By teaching children about “Wisdom”, they learn to make the right choices. They learn that they must give thoughts to their actions and realize that there are positive or negative results from any action. When children learn this they begin to make more of the right choices for themselves rather than just reacting by emotions. They begin to realize that their choices determine their future.

By teaching children about “Benevolence”, they learn to help others and they learn respect. They learn that we are all unique individuals and we have our differences and that it is important to accept these differences. They learn not to judge others and to treat others as they would like to be treated. They learn that others’ wants and needs are just as important as their own.

By teaching children about “Sincerity”, they learn to be honest. They learn the importance of not only being honest with others, but also with themselves. They learn that their results are determined by their efforts. Children learn that they are responsible for themselves and what they do. They learn not to blame others when things don’t go their way.

By teaching children about “Bravery”, they learn that it is okay to be afraid. They also learn to face their fears and that is how they will improve themselves. When a child learns to overcome their fears they become unstoppable. A child with the courage to try new things, even when afraid, develops the power to accomplish anything in life.

In Our Children’s Martial Arts Classes
Your Child Will Experience . . .

Better Grades: The grades go up and stay up! Our program offers a lot more than just self-defense and physical agility. It is an educational program that will give your child the discipline needed to study, complete homework and organize their time wisely. Ultimately, this leads to better concentration at school and better grades. We make success a habit, not a chore!

Leadership Skills: To help them succeed in life! Martial arts training results in greater motivation and focus. Your child will learn how to set goals and take responsibility for their own actions. These qualities, more than any others, will help your child develop as a leader and not as a follower. This, in turn, will ensure their success in school, college and life!

Increased Athletic Ability and Physical Fitness: To help your child develop physically! Our martial programs are designed to be the perfect exercise program for your child increasing speed, stamina and agility. They also help develop balance, coordination and timing, which helps your child in sports and other activities.

Confidence and Self-Esteem: To give your child the courage to say NO in the face of peer pressure! One of the scariest problems facing many parents today is the possibility that their child may become involved with drugs. The number of children taking drugs at a younger age is staggering. We help promote anti-drug programs as well as conduct our own anger management and conflict resolution program. Our programs are designed to promote self-confidence and self-esteem — giving your child the strength to resist peer pressure.

High Energy Classes: Fun-filled classes your child will truly enjoy! From the children’s point of view, the best part about our program is how much fun the classes really are. We focus your child’s energy in a positive and productive manner. They enjoy the classes so much they don’t even realize they are exercising and getting in better physical shape.

Realistic Self-Defense Skills: That could save your child’s life! While we wish it weren’t a factor in our program, the fact remains that there are undesirable people in this world we live in. We don’t give children a false sense of reality by teaching them how to be victorious only in competition. Our program teaches your child how to protect himself in real life threatening situations. This invaluable skill could be the difference between life and death!

Personalized Attention: To ensure rapid progress! We focus on quality instruction and personal attention. Our students are treated as individuals.
