MMA & Grappling for Kids

Mixed Martial Arts - Tap In Not Out!

White Dragon’s Mixed Martial Arts program for kids is designed to produce complete, well-rounded martial artists that can hold their own in competition or any self-defense scenario imaginable. What makes our training so comprehensive is that we combine only the most effective techniques from the world of Chinese martial arts into one seamless fighting system.

Develop Real World Fighting Ability

Through the practice of Chinese Kickboxing, or “San Da”, students master kicking, striking and takedowns. Then we incorporate “Push Hands”, a form of stand up grappling practiced in Tai Chi, to develop the ability to fight by feel. This practice, in particular, trains students to use the opponent’s energy to power counter-attacks. Finally, a focus on submission grappling (similar to jiu jitsu without the gi) instills the full range of close-in, ground fighting capabilities.

Your Health & Safety Is Always Our Priority

Although many White Dragon students are ring and cage accomplished, we realize not everyone wants to go pro. No matter the ultimate goal, be assured that the health and safety of our students is our number one priority. Whether working one-on-one with a skilled instructor, or in a class training with fellow students, we always make sure that everyone on the mat is following the very best safety practices. Call or stop in at any of our 8 San Diego or Temecula locations for more information. We’d love to meet you in person!

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Grappling, and MMA

Because of the rise of the UFC and mixed martial arts, Jiu-Jitsu and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) have gained tremendous popularity. As a result, many people wanting to learn martial arts often begin their searches with terms like “Gracie Jiu-Jitsu”, or “BJJ”. While these are definitely solid systems, they are by no means the only way to learn how to fight on the ground.

Did you know that the roots of most throwing and grappling arts can be traced back to the fighting systems practiced in ancient China? In fact, the roots of Jiu-Jitsu can be traced back to Chin Na, the age-old Chinese art of joint-locking. Similarly, Judo and Aikido can be traced back to Shuai Chiao, a Chinese throwing art dating back to 700 BC!

So, if your goal is a solid foundation in mixed martial arts, you’re going to want to train at White Dragon, the leader in martial arts instruction for almost 4 decades!
