Welcome to Black Dragon Martial Arts

Our GOAL is to foster the advancement of Tactical Hapkido,
Tae Kwon Do, Women's Self Defense, Karate for Kids, and Black Dragon Special Forces, a program nationally recognized with a letter of commendation from the Louisiana House of Representatives for those with special needs. Our PHILOSOPHY is to teach the traditional core values of the martial arts to those who are serious about both tradition of the philosophical aspects of the Arts as well as the self defense aspects of the arts taught with honor, respect and personal integrity, both on and off the mat.  We are NOT a tournament school or associated with any group that is. We are interested in each and every student and their self actualization to advance themselves to their highest potential.  This is the meaning of the martial arts that was passed down from the great masters. Therefore, our MISSION STATEMENT is to turn no one away with the desire to learn the Arts or at least refer them to the appropriate resource that fits their needs best. 
With No contracts and No sign up fees,  as well as low monthly rates, one cannot go wrong taking classes with us. We are a family-friendly run business.   Black Dragon Martial Arts, LLC is locally owned and operated by Internationally Certified Black Belt Instructor Master Ken Ducote of the Tactical Hapkido/ Universal Taekwondo Alliance, under the leadership of Grandmaster Barry Rodemaker. ( Master Ken is also the Louisiana State Director of the Tactical Hapkido Alliance and the Universal Tae Kwon Do Alliance.  VENDORS OR VISITING INSTRUCTORS MUST MAKE AN APPT OUTSIDE OF REGULAR CLASS TIME. There are no visits allowed except prospective students and their families during class. Master Ken Ducote, MA, NCC, LPC is a licensed psychotherapist by profession in both Louisiana and Colorado.
