For adults, whether you’re new or seasoned, the martial arts or yoga offers the perfect activity. You’ll relieve stress, gain confidence, improve your physical conditioning, and learn how to defend yourself and your family. The adult and family classes will not only be a fun way to get in shape, but with the introduction and practice of yoga, also holds the advantages of stress-relieving meditation, a whole new way to look at life’s challenges through applied practical philosophy.

For kids, Black Dragon Martial Arts goes way beyond teaching children how to defend themselves. It is a leadership development program that teaches life-lessons and character development for making the right decisions now and in the future. The benefits are numerous, including a reward system that improves children’s self-esteem, a class structure that teaches discipline, activities to channel aggression, confidence-building skills and lifetime self-defense skills.

Located in Downtown Sault Ste. Marie, the new center will serve residents in Pickford, Rudyard, Kinross and Brimley and more throughout Chippewa County and Canada.

Master Tina Fuller stated, “As a member of Black Dragon Martial Arts and Wellness Center, the focus, concentration, awareness and confidence you’ll gain from training in either the martial arts or yoga will give you the skills you need to handle most situations when you feel under pressure or stressed.

Best of all, you won’t get bored because the only way to be successful in either training style is to constantly change your exercise. Group training is better than following an exercise video three times a week or jogging on the treadmill as you watch television. Plus, you’ll often have to use different muscle groups to master new moves, so your mind is always working while you exercise.”
