    Jacob has been in therapy for years for anger issues and social anxiety disorder. The 6 months of Taekwondo classes have done more for his self esteem and self confidence than all the therapy has done. He is no longer dependant on medication to keep his anger in check. Just thought you should know that I think you are doing a wonderful job!

  2. Joel Barnhart says:

    Amy was so shy and timid now she is confident. I was surprised when our family doctor recommended your school as a way to build her confidence and get her in shape but I am so glad that she did! Taekwondo class at the American Dragon Martial Arts Academies has really changed our little girl for the better.

  3. Lenny Kaling says:

    I was worried that Michael may be too young for class but he loves your summer camp progam and wakes me up early every morning to make sure that I am taking him to camp. Even on the weekends. LOL!

  4. Stephen Meloy says:

    The Taekwondo and Hapkido training is world class. I really enjoy the times that I get to workout here. I recommend it to anyone who wants to improve their life through martial arts training.

  5. Patton Brown says:

    I can’t say enough about the quality of training that I saw at the American Dragon Martial Arts Academies in Winter Garden, Florida. Our son really loves the classes.

  6. Jim Murray says:

    I can see why they are one of the top Taekwondo and Hapkido schools in the USA. I visited most of the schools in the area and this one was the best by far.

  7. Jeremy Lilly says:

    I had a chance to work directly with Grand Master Richard Hackworth during filming of the movie “Born To Compete”. He is one of the most knowledgeable Taekwondo and Hapkido teachers I have ever seen. Anyone taking his classes is bound to benefit immensely from it.

  8. Suze Green says:

    Javier seems to be really enjoying your classes! We were afraid with his short attention span, accompanied by his ADHD that he would have lost interest or have been thrown out by now. That’s certainly not the case! We are taking such pride in his accomplishments. We will continue to be your biggest fans!

  9. Bill McNally says:

    I like learning Hapkido at American Dragon Martial Arts Academies because it is a lot of fun and it helps me with my other sports too. My golf game has improved and I feel 15 years younger.

  10. Jack Hill says:

    I soon realized that the time had come to help my young daughter learn how to protect herself. Obviously I wanted her to receive the very best self defense and fitness instruction available. I found it at the American Dragon Martial Arts Academies.
