The Black Dragon Special Forces program is for high-functioning individuals with Down Syndrome or Autistic disorders.

As the new year moves forward, so does the Black Dragon Special Forces, a program for high-functioning individuals with Down Syndrome or Autistic disorders and their families.

Black Dragon Martial Arts led by Master Ken Ducote, MA, NCC, LPC, a licensed psychotherapist along with his wife Kristine and their Leadership Team built this school as not only another "karate" school but as a social service to the community they serve.

As well as teaching Hapkido, Taekwondo, women's self defense and karate for kids, Black Dragon also serves the special needs community.

As one can see in the photo, this program is growing and has been accepted with open arms by families as well as being accepted at the national level by the Universal TaeKwondo Alliance/Tactical Hapkido Alliance, under the direction of Grand Master Barry Rodemaker, 8th Dan. Black Dragon is also available for community talks on personal safety and demos as well as school visits to combat bullies and others with aggression.
