ABOUT OUR KARATE SCHOOL
GDMA is a small town town business that is strongly oriented to the principles of knowledge; we connect education and wisdom to character and confidence. We teach by the motto of “honor, respect, self discipline”, which conveys a message to our students important to life both in and outside of the classroom. The material taught in our classes are not just techniques and forms- we reinforce the mindset and lifestyle of a true warrior. With knowledge comes power, and Green Dragon Martial arts packs a powerful punch.
