Our San Clemente martial arts origins grew out of a garage right here in San Clemente. Our original name was “Fist of the Red Rebel” in honor of Wing Chun’s martial arts history of being taught in secret by underground rebels. Sifu Adam Williss, founder of The Dragon Institute, taught a handful of students now known as “the OG crew” (original garage crew).
Enter the Dragon
After a few years of our small San Clemente martial arts garage classes, we decided to find a professional facility. So we moved up the road after finding the perfect spot right on Pacific Coast Hwy in Dana Point and The Dragon Institute was born. Less than 5 minutes from our original garage school in San Clemente, martial arts school has been serving the San Clemente community for over 10 years!

The Wing Chun martial arts system is a very unique system. It is efficient, direct and highly practical for realistic self-defense. It also is a system of calming focus. Integrating the emotions, mind, energy (chi) and body, the type of Wing Chun we practice is considered an internal martial art with foundations in philosophy, psychology, health and science. Great for all ages, the Wing Chun martial arts system specializes in precision and fluidity. It teaches you how to “be like water” and how to control your emotions in even the most chaotic situations.
We invite those looking for San Clemente martial arts classes to give Wing Chun a try. Its different than anything else you’ll ever do!
