See What Our Community Members in Wood River, IL Say About Our Programs
From the first time Lily experienced a one on one class w/ Master Chris, she showed obvious signs of increased Focus and Balance. Prior to starting Little Dragons, Lily needed help with both of these skills. In 5 short weeks, Lily has decided that her goal in life is to be a Black Belt like Master Chris! As a parent, we always want the very best growth opportunities for our children. We are so excited to see her progress as she works towards her goal and we know made the right decision for our child’s life. Thank you YMAFA

Children need our support. We work hand in hand with parents to ensure our students make the right choices. At Yi's Martial Arts Fitness Academy we work with each student one on one with support when needed.
Develop High Self-Esteem
The physical and psychological effects of bullying are often extremely harmful, far-reaching, and long-lasting. Bullying commonly begins by the 2nd grade, and occurs throughout life. Bullying can be physical, verbal, or indirect, and can range from mild teasing to spreading rumors to pushing and hitting. Bullying frequently occurs on the internet as well. Having high self-esteem gained through martial arts training helps children stand up to the negative issue associated with bullying. It is important for a child to develop a high self-esteem and strong friendships to distance themselves from situations where they could be bullied.
Building Strong Leaders
The team of instructors at Yi's Martial Arts Fitness Academy in Wood River, IL is empowering adults and children to resist and overcome the harmful phenomenon of bullying by building strong leaders in the community through Martial Arts. It gravely concerns Professor Chris Lee when children are victimized by anyone, especially their peers. Being a victim of a bully can lead to a child avoiding school, developing life-long anxieties, plotting and performing violent acts of vengeance, and even committing suicide.
We Give You The Tools To Succeed
Here at Yi's Martial Arts Fitness Academy we equip you and your children with the tools necessary to succeed in every situation. We will teach your child to walk away (while staying calm and not running), tell the assailants to stop and leave him or her alone, and to use humor to rapidly halt a bullying situation. Making eye contact with others (especially the bully) and to talking with a strong voice are also shown to reduce the occurrences. Naturally, we also teach skills for self-defense when conflicts turn physical.
