Great school!, 1/14/2009

I've been a student at White Dragon Martial Arts in Mira Mesa for several years. My entire family also trains there. The instructors are great and well versed in Choy Li Fut kung fu, Yang style tai... chi chuan, and also various forms of kickboxing, grappling, and weapons sparring. It's a very fun and exciting environment to learn authentic Chinese martial arts.

Best Martial Arts in the El Cajon & Santee Area!, 1/01/2009

I have had a great experience with White Dragon Martial Arts! They teach kung fu, tai chi, kickboxing and self-defense. What makes White Dragon Martial Arts so different is that they give every... student private instruction and access to all classes! You should check it out.

The place to go!

This is a hard core school for the serious student. If you want to learn the best way, you need to learn from the best! Sifu Ferreira knows his stuff and will teach you to become the best you can be. The personal training program is also hard core, effective, and tailored perfectly for each student's needs. Wanna get stronger, feel better about yourself, and let's be honest--look hotter?? Here's your school.

White Dragon

I never considered attending a martial arts class as an adult. At White Dragon I was welcomed with open arms and encouraged. White Dragon has helped me meet my goals physically and emotionally. I am grateful for all that the White Dragon Family has given to me and my daughter.

Best martial arts in San Diego

I have been training at White Dragon for nine years, and have enjoyed it so much I now bring my kids in for training. White Dragon's philosophy is to help all their students become physically and mentally strong, while still making it fun. The one on one instruction, focusing on goal achievement and the importance of a healthy lifestyle, is great for both adults and children. Whether you're looking for a sport that never loses its challenge, or for real world self defense techniques, White Dragon can meet your goals. The personal growth I have seen as a result of my training at White Dragon is phenomenal. I wouldn't do anything else for my workout!

Martial Arts Training for a Healty, Happy Life

My husband and I have been members of the White Dragon School in El Cajon since 2001, and we have loved every minute of it. Sifu Ferriera instills an environment where learning is physically and mentally challenging, but safe, fun and thoroughly enjoyable. The instructors are knowledgeable, patient, and supportive, while encouraging the best from their students. This is a place where strength, flexibility, and stamina are gained through a wide variety of classes and private lessons that culminate in learning a healthy lifestyle and self defense skill set. Friendships are born here, and become rich with shared experiences. We feel very fortunate to be part of the White Dragon Family of El Cajon.

Great school, great value

White Dragon offers a great school for everybody. I have been very happy with the instructors and courses offered. My son gets once a week private instruction and unlimited group instruction. You can't beat that. Check out the new studio!

White Dragon El Cajon - Excellent School

White Dragon of El Cajon is a wonderful school. Young or old, you will receive individual attention as well as be able to take group lessons. I personally take Tai Chi from Sifu Ferreira who is extremely knowlegeable, pays attention and listens. His well trained staff is always there to help. I cannot recommend any other martial arts facility than White Dragon of El Cajon

The Best Martial Arts School in San Diego

If you are looking to learn martial arts, THIS IS THE PLACE; if you are looking for the best workout of your life, THIS IS THE PLACE; if you are looking to be handed a black belt, go somewhere else. You earn your belts at this school! I've trained at White Dragon for almost 9 years. There is no other martial arts school that compares to it for learning the art (Choy li fut, Tai chi etc.) The instructors are excellent, the classes are outstanding and you will work harder than you ever have! You will not only get into the best shape your life and learn self defense, you will find that you can apply the principles of the art to your daily life; ie. don't fight force against force. White Dragon is a tremendous place for kids, too. They will learn self discipline, confidence, control and respect. I highly recommend it!

Quality Training

My husband, daughter and I have been students at White Dragon Martial Arts School of El Cajon since the early 90s! Throughout that time we have experienced the dedication that Sifu Ferreira and his instructors show each and every student who enters the school. Their commitment to providing the best possible physical training is accentuated by their ability to show students how to apply martial arts concepts to improve the quality of their lives. Come join our martial arts family!

Highly Recommended

You can flip through the yellow pages or even search the web for martial arts classes, but if you are looking for a real authentic kung fu teaching style that would challenge you to reach your full potential, then White Dragon East County School is for you. There you will find fellow classmates that will kick, punch or chop you into shape (smile) and a Sifu and instructors that would truly embrace you as Grasshopper”. On a personal note, my training at White Dragon East County School has been truly rewarding, I made fantastic friends. I wanted a martial art school with a good solid foundation, of Group classes; Private lessons; and practical experience through Sparring. This has been important to me as a female student in learning how to defend myself. I feel this has been accomplished through hard work and determination. I have been able to work on and develop my kicks, and I am getting used to being hit and hitting others back. The teaching at White Dragon East County School is both positive and empowering. I have tremendous respect for Sifu Ferreira and his instructors. And under their guidance I am looking forward to seeing my continued growth and where my training will take me in the years to come.

Postive Environment for the whole family

White Dragon has been such a huge positive influence on my son and myself. Being a single mother to a son who doesn't have a positve male role model is difficult. Since signing my son up for kung fu, i have seen a huge difference in his attitude. He is happier and treating me with much greater respect. I owe it to the amazing staff at white dragon for being such great positive role models. I also work out there and have never been in better shape. If you are a single mom and want to get back in shape while your children are also being worked out, this is the place for you!!!
