"The test of a good teacher is not how many questions he can ask his pupils that they will answer readily, but how many questions he inspires them to ask him which he finds hard to answer."

For all its force and energy we also understand that some of the most basic principles such as balance and coordination can be instilled in even our youngest students. Beginning at age 3, our Kidkido and Youth programs bring children together, teaching discipline and basic techniques that build confidence and camaraderie among our younger class members (and expending some of that youthful energy!) 

Your instructors are David, Meghan and Ella Ventura, students of Grand Master Edgardo Perez, one of only a few 8th Dan Hapkido masters in the U.S. Grand Master Perez himself studied Hapkido in Korea under Grand Master Yu Chong Su. Trained in both Hapkido and Guazabara and certified by Grand Master Perez as instructors, we take a great deal of pride in creating an environment in Port Angeles that is safe and fun to train in for all.

This school and the Arts we teach are our life, our love and our passion and it is that passion, you will find, that differentiates us from most other gyms and studios. Come in and share our fire!

Voted BEST Martial Arts School on the Peninsula 

Whether you are considering a martial art for yourself or child or simply want to stay in shape, please consider Phoenix Dragon. We teach two different, realistic disciplines of martial arts, our custom Innocent Warriors© Women's Self Defense multi-session series and most recently our innovative Urban Survival Response Training course. Because health and fitness are equally important whether you are studying martial arts or not, we also provide customized, fun and exciting cardio kickboxing classes to cover all of your fitness needs.

Our school is a family oriented facility reaching youth and adult students here in Port Angeles, nearby Sequim and Joyce and as far away as Port Townsend, Forks and across the Washington Olympic Peninsula. Here at Phoenix Dragon our students learn power. Not so much the use of power as the control and ultimately the mastery of it. In Hapkido, it's just that, learning to control yourself in order to control your opponent. In Guazabara, a tactical edged weapon system, we train in both offensive and defensive edged weapon tactics. Our very own custom cardio kickboxing fitness program has been developed to keep your heart rate up while strengthening your core and everything around it, whether you are a martial artist or just want to be physically fit like one.

Our custom Innocent Warriors© Women only Self Defense Seminar program is a unique mutli-session, revolving series that educates the student on varying and increasingly more dangerous scenarios. Each session focuses on potentially violent situations and how to best avoid them or deal with them in order to escape if they occur.

Finally, the community we serve is very important to us and in this community as with so many others across the country, at-risk youths struggle with tough decisions that can effect the rest of their lives. It is our experience that troubled youths can benefit greatly from our self defensive form of Martial Arts together with our style of teaching. Often simply having a place that provides consistency, exercise and structure can make a huge difference in these youths lives. To that end we have developed S.M.A.R.T., Supportive Martial Arts Reaching Teens, a community sponsored outreach program for troubled teens.
