Group classes are a fun and effective way to learn your chosen style, be it Muaythai or MMA. You will receive hands on experience from your knowledgeable instructors. Classes start with ten minutes of skipping to warm up, followed by a full body stretch taking the best elements from Muaythai, Kung Fu, MMA etc. Classes are then split up into experience levels, beginners, intermediates, grading and advanced. Then the training begins...
One of the first main rules that will be explained in presentation and that the members know of the gym that we do not do politics or drama or personal issues of any kind that will affect the business, as we are here to help you but it depends on the circumstance, and we are not on a club level; but are here to teach the traditions and style. Our gym is based on good energy to get good results. Those that cross the line will be expelled and asked to leave immediately. All the systems of the arts must be kept confidential as in any business and all students of any level may not teach outside of the facilities without Sifu Quentin Chong's permission. If done so legal action will take place. If anybody is found doing their own business inside Dragon Power, using the infrastructure, will be dealt with in a legal manner with our lawyers. As Randy "The Natural" Couture says: "Check you ego at the door.", as we are here to learn in the gym, not compete.
There is no full contact; everything is on padding to learn the technique and manner first. If you join the fighter's class there will obviously be contact as one needs to learn to fight with the contact. Should you wish to spar, we advise you to come join the Friday open class from 5pm - 7pm where there is controlled sparring is supervised by senior instructors to maintain safety.
"Our main aim is to keep the culture of the sports and not water it down and to have fun while learning. We always aim to bring the best of what is happening around the world to keep the training at the top level and always maintaining the basics. To keep a good energy as you don't enjoy what you do, you will not get the results you want, no matter how hard you train. Safety always comes first. See you guys soon at the gym, and lets have fun and have a good day. Time Waits for no one"
"We are our own true masters, and students of our teachers"
Sifu Kru Quentin "Dragon" Chong
