Brief History of 
American Dragon

American Dragon Martial Arts Academy is the first and only Martial Arts School in Broward County certified to teach Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do. Our Chief instructor, Sifu Neil Cauliffe is trained directly under Sifu Dan Inosanto, Bruce Lee’s partner and Protégée.
Sifu Neil left 2 thriving Martial Arts Schools and Sifu Helana gave up a stable and successful career in Pediatric Nursing to move to South Florida and open school back in 1997. Since then, American Dragon Martial Arts Academy  has been dedicated to teaching a unique & exciting martial arts program designed to help our students become strong mentally, physically, emotionally & socially.
Through classes developed specifically for Adults, Children and Families our school has become a community of learning and growth. As soon as you walk through the door, you will feel the family friendly atmosphere that defines us, and will feel comfortable in right from the start. You will also notice our structure, and the Respect of our students. Whether you’re an adult wanting to get fit, lose some unwanted pounds,  or learn real life, applicable self-defense or a parent who wants to improve your child’s Confidence, Discipline, or Listening Skills, our passion is to help our students become the best version of themselves.

Our Philosophy:

For us, martial arts is so much more than kicking and punching; it is a method of guiding people to a healthier and more successful life. The physical benefits include much higher energy levels, weight loss and physical fitness, as well as your ability to protect yourself and your family. The mental changes include sharper focus, stress relief, and a sense of confidence and well being.
Although we instruct both the physical and mental aspects of martial arts, we initially put strong emphasis on the mental aspects. In fact, that is one of the reasons we challenge all of our students at the end of every class to live up to the principles of Black Belt, which includes persistence,courtesy, integrity, Discipline and courage.
This only works if our instructors truly model the values that we teach. This is why we’re so careful in selecting our instructors.
At American Dragon Martial Arts Academy, we consider it our responsibility and a privilege to help our students develop skills that will help them in every aspect of their lives.


What Makes Us Different

What makes American Dragon Martial Arts Academy different from other Martial Art Schools is our Leadership Program. Our students become “Black Belt Leaders” in school, the community, home, and in life. The majority of our Juniors are A students in school, on the honor roll, and are leading some kind of club, project, or group at school. They all didn’t start that way when they came in for classes. They learned to develop themselves into Leaders with consistent, focused, and structured training that we teach in our Leadership classes. Our Leadership program is proven, time and time again, to create true Leaders.
Our family friendly environment helps our students to become stronger Mentally, Physically, Emotionally and Socially.
Smaller class sizes, so your child can get more individual attention. This allows us to know each and every student and monitor progress more closely. They are not lost in a large class setting.
Our Leadership Program gives your child the Mindset and the skill set to become Leaders of their peers and in the community.
Our lineage. We are one of only 3 schools in the state of Florida certified to teach Jeet Kune Do, the art and philosophy of Bruce Lee himself. Our Chief instructor, Sifu Neil Cauliffe is trained directly under Sifu Dan Inosanto, Bruce Lees partner and Protégée.
These are just a few things that Make American Dragon Martial Arts Academy a place worth looking into.
