Little Dragons (4-7years)


Lead by Emilio Cardenas, Little Dragons helps four to seven-year-olds learn DISCIPLINE, TEAMWORK, CONFIDENCE, COMMITMENT and RESPECT.

With a focus on non-striking solutions and engaging the Bully Buster System, this class builds skills in fitness and focus in a fun and engaging way!

Little Dragons introduces young kids to general martial arts, through basic self defence practices and techniques from Wing Chun Kung Fu.

Wing Chun Kung Fu was made famous by Bruce Lee, but is an ancient form of martial arts. Due to its lengthy history, the moves taught here give a great foundation to excel in any martial art form.

Emilio has a natural gift in being able to relate well to his students and bring out the best in those he works with. His students trust and respect him and his easy-going natural flow and depth of knowledge allows him to instruct in both a friendly and effective manner which is great for children and adults alike.

The Bully Buster system was created by Dr. Terrence Webster Doyle and teaches the 12 step to confidence method. Dr. Terrence is a revered author a Director of the Atrium Society.

Dr. Terrence has authored numerous books which discuss different methods of peaceful living and creating good behavioural habits in kids. His book Why is Everybody Always Picking on Me? A Guide to Handling Bullies, is an international best seller.

Feel at your wit's end with your child's behavior?

Do you want your child to have:

  • Strong decision-making skills
  • Control of their emotions.
  • Time management,
  • Organizational skills, and
  • Sound decision making.


  • Uncontrolled outbursts,
  • Aggressive behaviour,
  • Defiance,
  • Challenges with focusing attention,
  • Completing tasks, and
  • Adapting to new situations.

Wing Chun Kung Fu forms the basis and the Industry’s #1 Character Development is the delivery system. With UMF’s support and intervention, these behaviors can be improved over time, so they don’t persist into adulthood.

Parents, you are not alone.

Behaviours are not entirely a reflection of parenting skills, rather a sign that your child requires extra support to develop their functioning skills. UMF Academy supports parents 100%.

Children are not born with decision-making skills – they are born with the potential to develop them. Children struggling in this area, only need help to get there.

Why is this important?

Act NOW to help our children, if not we’ll experience a generation without the ability to control their behavior or have awareness of their actions.

Your Child’s Behaviour Is Not Permanent!

Functioning skills can be developed and improved over time with intentional training and support. Children thrive on structure and boundaries.

Parents who understand and support the development of these skills can effectively change the path of their child’s growth and success.

✔️ Improved Self-control & Social Skills

✔️ Increased Focus

✔️ Improved organizational & planning Skills

✔️ Self-Awareness

Build skills in fitness and focus in a fun and engaging way!
