Martial Arts Lessons

The American Dragon Martial Arts schools in Clermont, Ocoee and Orlando / Winter Park, has been teaching martial arts lessons to families so that they can become champions in life since 1984!

Martial Arts like Taekwondo and Karate as a sport has exploded world wide and is the most practiced sport in the country now with over 40,000 professional schools in the USA.

Hollywood can’t hold a candle to the real thing! Martial arts is one of the most fun and exciting sports to participate in for competition because there are so many different types of event. You can compete in forms, weapons, breaking, self defense and sparring.

At our martial arts school we offer competition training in Taekwondo, Karate, Jujitsu, Wrestling and MMA. Our team has traveled to Korea three times to compete at the World Champions and brought home medals in over eight divisions each time. If you want to be the best then you have to train with the best. That is why so many people chose  to take lessons at the American Dragon Martial Arts Academies when they want the best in Taekwondo, Karate, Jujitsu, Wrestling and MMA training.

Our sport takes dedication, patience and practice, but the payoff is a lifetime of fun, camaraderie and excitement!

Our martial arts teams compete often. Martial arts as a sport demands self-motivation and self-improvement. Ratings and points can only be earned one way… through trial by fire, facing an opponent in the ring, our modern day battle field. While we encourage all of our members to pursue competition, many also follow the more recreational path to enrichment.

Success is found at all levels! Not everyone can be a champion, but everyone can enjoy success and growth within the sport. Martial arts not only tests the training and talent between two athletes, but makes each person push themselves through barriers and reach new levels of growth. The more a martial artist trains, competes and studies, the faster their skills will be sharpened.

It’s great to win a medal or earn a rating, but just knowing that you put your heart and courage into your match is the best reward.

We are a family! Grand Master Fred Parks, Dr. Richard Hackworth, Master Shane Miller and Dr. Ronald Stone have a combined experience of over 100 years of martial arts training and teaching between them. Our academy has been in constant operation since 1984 making us the area’s oldest and most respected martial arts school.

All of our teachers are volunteers who also happen to be certified martial arts master instructors through the world headquarters in Korea and maintain their professional careers. Grand Master Fred Parks is a retired school teacher and full time ER Nurse in our community. Dr. Richard Hackworth is an author and retired US Army Linguist who speaks and writes six languages. Master Shane Miller is a physical education teacher and fitness trainer in Orlando. Dr. Ronald Stone is a best selling Western Novelist and Veterinarian who owns and operates the Veterinary Trauma and Medical Center in Groveland, Florida. As you can see, our instructors aren’t your typical kick and punch Karate instructors. They are educated professionals and excellent role models for the students to look up to. These are the kinds of professionals that loving parents want mentoring their children.

We emphasize the “Martial Arts Family” and do our best to keep the sport affordable to as many people as possible with our family friendly rates. We pride ourselves on building lasting relationships and helping students of all ages strive for personal excellence.
