Aurora Martial Arts in Corvallis is full of aspiring karate kids.
Owner Lou Donadio said, "Parents don't really want their kids to be ninjas or Power Rangers."
The Little Dragon class offers kids a chance to do more than just do what they see on television. They learn plenty of ways to show respect, find their focus and how to carry themselves in life.
Even though the 3 and 4 year olds focus on self-defense, the plan is to never have to use it.
Some former Little Dragons have grown up to be big, fire-breathing black belts like 19-year-old instructor Jamie Donadio.
Jamie and other ex-Little Dragons have come back to pass on the knowledge they have taken away during their time in the dojo.
As you can see in the Kaptivating Kidz story above, the current crop of Little Dragons are well on their way to becoming ferocious Kung Fu masters.
