SUN PRAIRIE (WKOW) -- The Little Dragons karate program is growing in popularity as children discover not only the fun of the sport but the discipline involved.
The program is one of the most popular at the Northeast branch of the Dane County YMCA in Sun Prairie.
Kids enjoy the fun games associated with karate, including getting parents involved.
The goal of the program is to give the kids a base in karate, but also to teach respect and self discipline.
"That's the biggest thing we learn, is respect," little Jason said.
This is very evident in the first line of the Little Dragon creed.
"I'm a little dragon, oh so strong. Learning everything both right and wrong."
The kids are learning the valuable lessons, but the amount of fun is evident on their little faces. These little 4-6 year olds make for very good little heroes.
