Martial Arts Classes In Independence

Hi, we are Jennifer and Justin Hanlon, owners of Dragon's Gate Family Martial Arts in Independence, Missouri. We want to take a moment to welcome you to our website and to say THANK YOU for considering Martial Arts for your child. We've taught kids martial arts classes for years and as you can imagine, we've seen every kind of personality you can think of in a child. Rambunctious, shy, defiant, complacent … every child is different.

Each child has special gifts to give and challenges to overcome. We've seen Martial Arts classes help every single one of them find their inner strength, peace, and focus. We've seen ultra-shy kids burst out of their shell, ADD and ADHD kids learn how to control themselves, socially awkward kids learn how to make and keep friends, and even helped special needs children find a place to fit in and feel accepted.


We teach all our members to focus on and be present in the moment - and in this age of distractions and sensory overload, this is a skill which returns immediate results in all aspects one's life.  Here are some interesting facts about Dragon's Gate Family Martial Arts Independence:

  • Our members are from all walks of life; we have students, attorneys, doctors, engineers, military and law enforcement all training in a fun, team oriented family environment;
  • We have kids that have been training for years that leave to top colleges and universities in the country, thanks in part to the discipline and focus on hard work they learned through martial arts.  This is something we take a great amount of pride in. 
  • There are always new generations of individuals and families coming in to pursue the ongoing legacy.  It is a tradition in martial arts to pass down the knowledge one receives in their training and many students become instructors, often ending up owning their own schools.  

It is our goal to inspire strength, discipline, confidence and focus in our students, to help them discover the leader that is within them.  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 Dragon's Gate Family Martial Arts Independence.  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.
