The Chinese proverb says: thousands of different schools of kung fu are essentially the same. But despite the fact that the essence martial arts alone, different methods of study. In China there is a traditional division of school on the outside and the inside. Our school has presented both directions.

My teacher, Valery Prosvirov really cares about teaching the...
My name is Claudio Alessandro Izzo and I'm a person who as a child I loved martial arts and Chinese culture. The discipline that kung fu fans show is amazing. Kung Fu is a very difficult art that requires many years of practice, but (in my opinion) it's also the most beautiful and useful art. Kung Fu is not just a martial art where you kick and punch, kung fu is much more than that. It's a lifestyle, and it's the lifestyle that I most recommend. To learn that style, the first thing you should do is stop thinking and let your teacher guide you along the way and the tradition of Kung Fu by having complete confidence in him. Kung Fu is divided into more than 300 types but all have the same philosophy in common. The end of Kung Fu is to teach self-discipline and self-control.

Anti-Bullying: Solving the Whole Problem (2016)
At Kung Fu of Golden Dragon Martial Arts School in West Los Angeles, we understand that one of the biggest challenges for children growing up is dealing with bullies. Feeling like a victim can hamper one's ability to learn, grow, and contribute in school and other areas. However, we also understand that the problem goes further than simply teaching self defense to those who are being bullied. Bullies usually pick on others because they feel unsafe or inadequate; they may be getting bullied themselves, feel insecure about something in their own lives, or just don't know how to express themselves.

Training with Masters Valery and Dmitry is a true blessing!  I've been wanting to do martial arts since I was little and tried it several times but something wasn't right. As soon as I walked into Golden Dragon school and talked to the teachers I knew it was my school.

Russian language courses (2016)
Golden Dragon Presents - Russian Without Borders! My name is Elena Prosvirova. I want to introduce you to the "Russian Language and Literature Courses" at Golden Dragon. Classes will be held every Sunday at 12217 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90025 When our family moved to Los Angeles from Moscow in 2012, my daughter Liza was just 6 years old. At that time, she spoke Russian, her native language, fluently, knew the alphabet and could read. But when she was enrolled in school, all of her classes were in English, and she started to communicate with us in this language. While I love that she has so quickly absorbed another language, I do not want her to forget her heritage. Therefore, I am taking time to teach her independently to keep her language in her mind. I do this not simply because having a second language can be incredibly beneficial later in life, but also because Russian is the cornerstone of our deep and beautiful culture. The works of Pushkin, Chekhov, Tolstoy, and Dostoevsky put our language into an essential position in the world's cultural heritage, and I believe that I am partly responsible for passing these cultural values onto our children. That's why I want my daughter to not just speak Russian but to speak it like a native speaker!

The Main Concept
Internal and External are not two familys. There is no most important part of a whole, and by dividing a whole in parts we forever exclude the possibility of stepping on the path of wisdom and self-perfection. It can be compared to standing in front of a pile of bricks trying to imagine what kind of house they made. Difficult isn’t it? Division of Internal and External does formally exist, but only within the limits of one tendency. Here the External work is aimed at developing the outer strength (Li), flexibility, coordination, stamina etc. Internal work is developing of effort (Jing) and all that, covered by Chinese meaning Neigong (inner work): developing strength of thought, spirit and mind, power of chi etc. But it is important to remember that one without the other is nothing. Ing and Yang don’t exist without one another – those are the basics. And if you want to achieve something worthwhile those cannot be neglected. Dividing the styles into External and Internal families is complete rubbish, especially in the interpretation that is used today. It is strange, but there is an opinion (for some reason considered an axiom) that External – is a strength involving tendency requiring literally bull’s force to perform effectively. But even that would not be enough if you lack “inborn capacity”. And that Internal family is a “fine technique”, no force required, because there is “super chi” that will do everything instead of you, and no need for press-ups till unconsciousness. Talking about the use of it (in a fight and not only), it is being thought that the External can be used to fight, and the Internal is not applicable. Ravings of a madman, but people believe it. Why? The answer is quite simple – ignorance, that is: absolute lack of understanding what martial arts are.

We are with you often hear the following sentence: « True martial arts have their own philosophy ». In fact filosovfiya is everything that surrounds us, where we live, what we breathe and what we think. Therefore, martial arts - it's part of the philosophy and not vice versa. Currently, philosophy is divided by time and territorial basis - Filosoviya Ancient East, Ancient filosoviya, modern philosophy and a number of philosophies and directions. What is it that unites them? If all these trends Philosophy remove all subjective and fictional, it remains the same for all people universal human philosophy, which is always true. Truisms, & Laquo; not oppress the weak, do not kill, do not steal » We were known Aw BC, and now their value is not diminished. The desire to make the world a little better, otzyvchevee, merciful unites everyone, even the most implacable.

Philosophy in Medicine obalsti is interpreted as: « always helps a person fight the disease until the last, and if it so happens, be ready to sacrifice themselves for the sake of someone's life »
