Kenpo instills qualities of confidence, respect,  discipline, and camaraderie as you develop personal abilities through  interaction with fellow students. By training with others, you develop a greater  understanding of your own unique qualities and talents, envision advancement  potential in them, and then implement a structured practice that leads you to  those goals through an environment that promotes growth. With the continued  increase of his school, Mr. Gonzalez is blessed to see the emergence of his  dream and the warm impact it is having on his community.

Each year, Desert Dragons’ students find success outside of the studio utilizing  the leadership and coping skills taught in class to become successful in school  and at work.  Young Desert Dragons’ participants have  been recognized at their elementary schools as “Student of the Month”, enacting the challenge in class to be strong young leaders in the  community.

Attending BASIS Peoria? Desert Dragons offers an After-school program for students wanting to continue their training from 5th grade.  Also offered each summer, Desert Dragons’ summer classes, specially designed Blue Belt intensive program to attain the next level of skill sets.
