Sifu Robert A. Gott started his career in martial arts in 1971 and since then has accrued experience in a spectrum of techniques. To share his love for martial arts, he invites guests to Red Dragon School of Martial Arts Inc., where he and his team of instructors teach kung fu, tai chi, and qi gong. They also teach strength and conditioning through high-intensity athletic workouts.
At World Class Tae Kwon Do Centers, instructors teach discipline and self-defense skills in classes for kids, adults, and families. Following the principles of founder Grandmaster Sun Ki Chong, teachers help students develop not only technical martial-arts skills but also leadership abilities and mental focus.

Students young and old receive a free, crisp white uniform and white belt before they go on to kick, punch, and tiptoe their way across the mats at Western New York Karate Center. They learn self-defense techniques and study sparring and weapons skills in more advanced classes.
Pride Martial Arts' signature MMA classes blend elements of muay thai kickboxing, Brazilian jujitsu, and tae kwon do into fast-paced workouts open to ages 4 or older. Regardless of experience level, the sessions teach fighters techniques for punching, kicking, and other self-defense essentials, but they also encourage something more holistic, which the veteran teachers dub "the black-belt lifestyle." Achievable for students of any level, it hinges on discipline, hard work, and both mental and physical health—life skills that are helpful outside the dojo, too.
