"I began my training in 1972, there is not undeniable honor and respect
among all black belts the way it once was. A few still hold onto those values,
but there are others who are not true black belts in regard to respect and
honor." - GM F.S.Ehnle
"When someone threatens you, they are demonstrating a weakness of
character. It is ultimately that weakness you will prey upon on your road to
victory." - GM F.S.Ehnle
"To be a black belt is to never do less than you are capable, and to never
do more than you are capable. It is to know exactly what you are capable of and
to use that to its highest potential." - Grandmaster F.Ehnle, 7th
Degree Black Belt

Royal Dragon Martial Arts
There are no defined standards within the Martial Arts
industry for instructors. Unfortunately there are schools and instructors who can just
credentials. It is up to each individual school to determine the qualifications
of an instructor level position. Our standards at Royal Dragon are
extremely high out of respect for the great responsibility of handing down these
ancient Martial Arts skills to the next generation. Our requirements
include required reading & study, physical skill, proven and demonstrated
knowledge of the curriculum qualifications.
Our entire staff
consists of highly skilled Martial
Artists who earned their instructor positions from their instructor. There are
no corporate "purchased instructor credentials" in our school. Each instructor
earned their position the traditional way. Each
instructor is an adult with at least a 3rd Degree Black Belt.
We have no teens or children teaching
class. Our Dan ranks truly represent years between Black Belt ranks and not
hollow purchased rank with the minimum time in grade. Only the finest
Martial Art Student who demonstrates excellence in physical, mental and social skills can
earn an instructor position at Royal Dragon Martial Arts. Come witness a class
and meet our traditional and highly skilled staff, you will see the difference.
