WHY IRON DRAGON?!
We are the #1 Martial Arts facility in Durham, Ontario and have served the region since 1997. Our members come to us from Pickering, Ajax, Whitby, Oshawa and even as far as Bowmanville.
You will not find shiney chrome barbell sets or high tech weight training equipment in our facility. No Sun Tanning booths or sauna's either. Not even air conditioning. No "earning" of belt rankings through frequent overpriced belt tests regardless of a student's actual abilities. No Lounge, Juice Bar or Protein Shake counter either!
Why? Because this is a facility for serious, dedicated, results oriented martial arts training. We do not cater to Fads. We are dedicated to preserving Traditional Martial Arts training and discipline.
We train under the time tested methods of the Shaolin monks who developed the ancient art of Kung Fu. We endeavour to honour their teachings through hard work, sweat and dedication.

POSITIVE THINKING THROUGH POSITIVE MARTIAL ARTS TRAINING............
THE IRON DRAGON WAY!
Now in our 20th year!
There is only ONE "Red Dragon" and it is Iron Dragon!
We are often copied but never duplicated!
Develop Self Confidence and Self Esteem! Get into the best shape of your life!
For almost 20 years my students and I have poured our hearts and souls into this amazing little Kung Fu Club! I look forward to many more!
The symbolism in the preceding picture reflects positive thinking as applied to our club:

...my favourite line from a song by Timbuk 3..."The future's so bright, we gotta wear shades"
LOL how positive is that?! I love that!
Here is a link to the song if you have not heard it. It is not exactly my type of music but the lyrics are so positive that I am able to "empty my cup" long enough to take in the higher meaning of the song! LOL!

"Fifty Thou' a year will buy a lot of beer" Bahahaha!
"Mountain! Get out of my way!!!!"
.....my favourite inspirational quote...
And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
Okay mountain....move to yonder place! LOL!
Over the years there have been many negative people ie "Energy Vampires" (some amongst the people I have known for many years) who declared that our humble club would never make it in a town populated with other Martial Arts clubs. Some even predicted that I would be out of business within 6 months! Well guess what? Here we are well into our 19th year!!!!
