About this pro

We believe everything we do should challenge the status quo. We believe in thinking differently. The way we challenge the status quo is by providing a learning and training experience not available anywhere else.
Our style is classified as an American style of Martial Arts which is a combination of the 7 major styles of martial arts. It is a very effective and powerful martial arts form that requires each student's desire, effort and commitment to excel. Founded in 1965 by American Martial arts pioneer Louis D. Casamassa, Red Dragon Karate has grown to 12 locations in Southern California.
The mission of Red Dragon, is to provide a safe, fun and affordable martial arts school which gives the children (and adults) in our community the opportunity to be involved in a positive atmosphere where they can learn to improve in mind, body and spirit. We will teach them effective self defense skills and show them how to be confident and self-assured while they grow into mature responsible adults. The Red Dragon Karate studio is a place of unity, that empowers students of all ages to take control of their lives through their training with our Black Belt, 5 star certified trainers who guide, coach and empower them to focus on improving themselves as students and martial artists.
