What is Little Dragons all about ?

Our Little Dragon program focuses on 3 different skill sets that create a well rounded Freestyle Martial Artist.  We focus on teaching Karate, Kickboxing and Sport Martial Arts along with a fitness program that will burn off the excess energy children have.

Our syllabus is designed for beginners and advanced. Focused on rewarding our children with new skills and drills as they progress through the grades.  All our programs are designed for both recreational and competition training so whatever you and your child are hoping to get out of studying Martial Arts, you can rest assured that we’ve got it covered!

The Fusion gym has a fully kitted boxing gym with a large boxing ring, heavy & light speed bags, and a selection of weights and cardio equipment to make sure you have all that is needed to enjoy and learn the sport and the conditioning involved…

What will you learn ?

Canterbury Little Dragons is not all about punching and kicking. Your child will find new inner strength and a love for the sport.

Each class is different, your child won’t be hitting the bag for the entire lesson, nor will they be left to their own devices.  Canterbury Little Dragons structures its classes in 4 simple stages:

  • Warm-up & Stretch 
  • Skill Set 1 (Technical learning)
  • Skill Set 2 (Partner Pad/Bag work)
  • An endurance drill to finish

Technical learning, learn multi combinations, movement and defence whilst building up your confidence to move onto partner drills with pads and bags.

Equipment commonly used in our classes, at the beginning:

  • 8oz Boxing Gloves
  • Focus Pads
  • Skipping rope

Then once competency is raised:

  • Head guard
  • Gum shield 
  • Groin guard
  • Shin pads
  • Kick boots
  • Trousers & Tshirt

If you’re looking to boost your childs core strength, and improve their cardiovascular and all over condition, then this is the right class. Why not book a trial pack and see how they get on…

Top 5 Frequently Asked Questions?

  • What happens when I book a trial pack?

Once you have purchased a trial pack you will receive an email to download our members app, here you will see our live timetable where you can book onto session in your chosen trial.    You will receive a confirmation email outlining the details of your booking, once booked.

We ask that you turn up to the class no earlier that 10min before your booking is due to start.  Please wait in the car park until the previous classes have exited from the facility. 

Please note that due to the nature of our classes we cannot allow late arrivals. Due to limited space, we ask you to come dressed ready to train.

  • What will I need for the trial?

Simply arrive in loose-fitting clothes with no zips or buttons (joggers and t-shirt). Please bring a bottle of water and a sweat towel.  That’s it, for the trial session we can lend you the gloves and pads needed.

  • What happens after the trial?

After your trial, you are given the option to join one of our membership plans and become an active member with Fusion Martial Arts & Fitness. However, if Fusion is not for you then that’s it and we thank you for trialling with us.

  • Will I need my own equipment after the trial?

Once you have completed your trial and decided you would like to join, then you will need to invest in your own personal equipment. For little Dragons, you will need:

  • 8oz boxing gloves
  • Focus Pads
  • Skipping rope

All of this can be purchased on our Shop page. Please do not buy cheap Boxing gloves, they are protective equipment and should be of good quality.  This is to keep you and your partners safe in training.

After a month of training, you will then need to buy your Sparring equipment.  Don’t worry about that right now, a full list of equipment will be emailed to you once you become a member.

  • How many times a week should I train?

We recommend twice a week as a minimum.  This will allow you to keep up the skills sets and memory muscles needed to learn the syllabus and keep improving.  In time you will need the skills for Grading and Sparring. Any less than twice a week greatly impacts development and motivation.

If you’re looking to compete then we would be looking for 3 to 4 sessions weekly. We offer additional classes for competitors, as and when competitions have been set.
