Mrs. Christman started her training in 1998 at the encouragement of her husband and 3 children, who were all taking classes. After much resistance, she agreed to start her training, and has never looked back.
She now holds a 4th Degree Black Belt, and has graduated the Leadership Program, and Instructor Training Program here at American Dragon Martial Arts Academy. She has been teaching here for over 14 years.
Her Husband and three children also hold Black Belts with American Dragon. This experience gives her a very powerful understanding of teaching, and how our program works for families.
Mr. Thompson’s parents brought him into our Academy when he was 7 years old to help him with ADHD. Though quite the challenging student in the beginning, he has persisted with his classes and learned to control himself Mentally, Emotionally, Physically and Socially. He developed a high level of focus, his grades improved in school, he has earned not one, but TWO Black Belts, as well as graduating our Leadership Program, STORM Team (Special Team of Role Models), and Instructor Training Program. Mr. Thompson is now 23 years old, and is one of our best instructors, who understands the challenges some of these kids can have, and knows from experience how to help them succeed.
