We love Dragon Claw Academy. Mr. and Mrs. Chen are amazing. Our boys love going to Kung Fu (and camp last summer). They are learning so much plus gaining work ethic and discipline while having fun.

We love dragon claw academy! They treat you like family and teach my son great morals as well as kung fu! I feel better knowing he can protect himself and has an outlet for all his energy. Also he has made great friends here!

Our son has been training at DCA under the expert tutelage of Shifu Aaron for over three years. He has developed physically, emotionally, intellectually, and his self-confidence is rock solid, while remaining modest, respectful, and genuine... All reinforced by the environment Shifu created and maintains at DCA. Then Chen family, and the greater DCA family, have been fantastic.

This place is my second home. I take the adult classes and have been going for a few months now. Aaron is an awesome teacher and is always there to help! If you are an adult and thinking of taking some kung fu. Give it a shot!

Aaron is an amazing teacher. Watching him interact with the kids is absolutely delightful! My son Christian has only been to 5 classes and I see him learning so much already and having a great time. Last week at school they were able to wear something shiny or something that made him feel special or unique. I'm sure you can guess what he wore! I'm so happy to be a part of the Dragon Claw Family!

Shifu Aaron Chen is a phenomenal and fun instructor that genuinely cares about each and every student. Shifu Chen is very knowledgable and teaches his style in a way that everyone can understand and replicate. I have taken many types of martial arts and I have never found an instructor like Shifu Chen.

We are happy with the teachings our son has received from Shifu Aaron. Dragon Claw has an excellent welcoming environment for everyone motivated to pursue a path in martial arts.

Dragon Claw Academy has been an amazing experience for our family. I had very different goals in mind for my kids: one of them needed to boost confidence and one of them needed a focused physical activity for his body and mind. Both have shown improvement and have been successful at DCA. Shifu Aaron values the individuals in his classes AND the communal experience that classmates provide for one another. Assistant teachers complement Shifu's teaching. Since a black sash kung fu master is a white belt novice who refused to quit, we'll happily be there for years.

I came here to relax and exercise. I am a UIUC student, and when I come here, I get to release all the energy while exercising and being healthy. Love it!

The staff is amazing! I signed my 5 year old son up for The Little Dragon Program and everyone was very welcoming, friendly and helpful! My son really enjoyed it and I love the flexibility of the schedule! Overall a great experience and can't wait to go back!

Shifu Chen is an exceptional teacher who takes a personal interest in the growth of every one of his students - no small task. He meets each student at their current skill/confidence level, encouraging and challenging them to grow with his expert guidance. He has developed a robust kung fu curriculum and a very welcoming culture that brings out the best in people. My husband and I started as adult students at Dragon Claw Academy a year ago and we cannot think of a better place to grow in strength, skill, and confidence.
