I was looking for an extracurricular activity that we, my husband and I, could do with our children. Something that we could participate in as a family, and not just chauffeur our children to. After the first two intro classes, we were hooked! The sport of Taekwondo is fun, exhilarating and empowering!
After only a few months we noticed greater flexibility, increased strength, and better cardio stamina.
What I didn’t expect were the changes that we have seen in our kids. They have grown more confident, respectful and self-disciplined. (A complete 180-degree change. From being too shy to walk in to school alone to having the courage to stand up for other children being bullied. I actually received two phone calls from other parents to say thank-you)!
Taekwondo has taught us concrete, peaceful solutions to deter bullying, and self-defense techniques that no parent nor child should ever be without. Techniques that are effective and simple enough that our five year old could use them! As a parent I realize that we can’t change the world, the best we can do is bully-proof our kids! Also, we really liked the idea of our daughter holding a black belt before she started dating!
Master Pellerin holds a 7th Dan black belt. His Taekwondo skills are amazing, but more than that he has a one of a kind ability to reach each student. His passion for the martial art is contagious. He is able to teach all skill, age and maturity levels. The classes are exciting and energizing. He uses humor and positive reinforcement to engage the students, and so easily commands and returns respect.
I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t benefit from joining Fire Dragon Taekwondo.
My only regret is not discovering this twenty years ago!

There are so many ways Fire Dragon Taekwondo has changed my life and why it means so much to me. It is a part of who I am now. I can say becoming a black belt is one the best achievements but it doesn’t stop there. I am still learning every day and have so much more to learn, black belt is just the beginning. I have met so many great role models and mentors through Taekwondo that have taught me so much.
Six years ago I could have never imagined that one day I would become an assistant instructor at Fire Dragon Taekwondo. Now today here I am, and I am so lucky to be able to help others on their journey in Taekwondo. It is so rewarding to see others, like myself, who struggle at first in Taekwondo to then become so much stronger both mentally and physically. Taekwondo means so much to me and really has changed my life!

Before I became a student, confidence was a huge problem for me. I never felt one hundred percent safe; I was very quiet and never felt comfortable standing up for myself. I also struggled a lot with discipline when I was younger. When I finally joined Fire Dragon Taekwondo, all those problems progressively started to go away.
Being a black belt has made me realize that my heart and mindset are what make me a black belt, not the belt itself. I’ve learned honesty, integrity, respect, perseverance, confidence and determination. These are some of the many traits that put true meaning into the belt and all of them have become such a huge part of who I am today.

Premier martial arts school. Every person is welcome from the competitive type to anyone who wants exercise. I have watched several children as well as young adults develop strong positive attributes that will carry them through life

Fire Dragon Taekwondo has helped me get more self-control. It has also helped me face fears. I also learned how to do proper kicks. I will also push myself when exercising because I can get stronger. By pushing myself I mean pushing my limits. I will try as hard as I can to be the best person I can be. It teaches me discipline, honesty and gave me a lot of confidence in myself.

Fire Dragon Taekwondo has been a great experience thus far for my family. My children and I (yes, Mom is a student, too) are new students to this school and I’ve been impressed with the structure of the classes. The instructors and Master Pellerin are all wonderful people and great with the students.
My children had some Taekwondo experience previously but like I said before, I’m impressed with this school and that is why I became a student.
Fire Dragon Taekwondo is a great place.

I started at Fire Dragon Taekwondo and fell in love with the sport. Not only did I find a fun and excellent source of exercise, I found a community, a family. Compassion, kindness, immense knowledge and a willingness to help others emanates from the head of our school. This leads the school with such strong values.
There are no words capable or strong enough to encompass the respect I have for Master Pellerin. The amount of time he and Master Annie have spent instructing, mentoring and helping me become a better martial artist, and a better person, is deeply appreciated.

I have been training at Fire Dragon Taekwondo for eight years and I can’t imagine life without it. It is something I really enjoy doing. It’s not just the learning and the Taekwondo itself. It’s the friendships that I have created along the way with the instructors and black belts there.

One good thing about Fire Dragon Taekwondo is that it’s fun to do, but it’s even more fun to do with your family. I know that because I do it with my family and I am super lucky about that.
