A leader is someone with the positive personal traits, organizational, managerial and interpersonal skills necessary to motivate others. A leader inspires confidence and trust in those around him/her. The Silver Dragon Kung Fu Leadership Program teaches students to earn the respect and admiration of their peers through positive example. Available by invitation only, this program seeks out students who have demonstrated the self-confidence and discipline necessary for long term success in the martial arts.
This program includes all of the benefits of our Black Belt Program, PLUS it includes specialized classes that teach leadership, life skills, instructor assistant skills, and advanced Kung Fu. Members of this program are eligible for valuable volunteer opportunities that will allow them to help their community as well as grow as a person.
All students 10 and up who want to develop leadership skills that will serve them in all aspects of their lives. These students accept a higher level of responsibility as ambassadors of Silver Dragon Kung Fu.
All members of the Leadership program are invited to attend special Leadership training classes offered at least once a month as well as Classroom Assistant Courses (a 4-class program required for potential volunteer assistants).
