Red Dragon Martial Arts Academy Norton

Martial Arts Classes In Norton

Red Dragon Martial arts is a family owned and operated kenpo karate school with no contracts. Founded in 2003 by Bob Downey, with his wife Trish, children Bobby & Ali by his side they began teaching karate classes for children and adults to rave reviews from parents and students. In 2007, RDMAA moved to its new facility at the PAGODA on route 140 in Norton, just south of the Xfinity center. The school has an 1150 sq foot Dojo, 1st and 2nd floor viewing and a pro-shop filled with all your martial art supply needs.

Red Dragon also offers creative, fun birthday parties as well as numerous seminars and social events throughout the year. In addition, our annual family summer karate retreat is always a favorite offering lots of fun summer activities, team building activities (ropes course) and of course plenty of karate.

Red Dragon Martial Arts Academy - Norton

Red Dragon, or "The Pagoda" as it is sometimes referred to due to it's unique design, is situated right across from the Norton Reservoir on Mansfield Ave (Route 140) just south of the Greatwoods market place and Roche Bros market. Just behind the unique office and entry way is a 1200 Sq foot dojo. There is also a parking lot in back of the building.

Upon entering the school you are instantly aware that this is a family owned establishment. You will see lots of pictures of adoring students and some of our own family as well, which makes for a very homey comfortable place to come and enjoy your martial arts training. Even the office will look more like a proud mothers area with pictures on the wall, on the desk and a very non-business like atmosphere. Mrs. Sensei is ready to answer any questions you might have about our school.

The Dojo is approximately 1200 Sq ft of wide open space, big enough to house the largest of classes and have enough room for dodge ball or karate baseball at the end. The floor is matted with 1 1/4" foam to ease stress on feet and make for a comfortable workout surface. Pasted across the front of the dojo for all students to focus on is our mantra, "A Black Belt is a White belt who never quit" as a reminder that every student has the ability to reach their goals.

There is a viewing area on 1st floor to watch your happy karate student in action.

It is our goal to inspire strength, discipline, confidence and focus in our students, to help them discover their inner leader. I believe every child has the potential to be a leader, they just need someone to believe in them. As a parent myself, I understand the challenges of raising a confident and focused child in an age where there are more distractions than ever.

And while the kids have their fun, our adult program is second to none. From traditional martial arts to more modern self-defense styles, there is something for everyone at Red Dragon Martial Arts Academy. If you are looking to burn major calories, learn self-defense moves and get in the best shape of your life, you must come and check out our adult program.

Imagine yourself as a stronger, more confident individual in the best shape of your life. I want to personally invite you to take advantage of our introductory trial offer, and turn that vision into a reality.

It would be a privilege to meet you and your child to have them step into the wonderful world of martial arts.
