Every exercise has a purpose (2017)
Every exercise has a purpose (2017)
Every exercise during class at the Golden Dragon has a purpose. Even the most basic exercises (a wrist rotation, a push-up, or a stretch) deserve full focus and full attention. If you do an exercise to the best of your ability, you will do it better every time. Your exciting progress will become your new normal - your technique and your physical condition will constantly improve. If you do an exercise in a half-hearted manner, you will never improve. With the minimum amount of effort, you achieve your minimum potential.

Cyber Bullying: Liza's Prosvirova Story (2017)
First of all, I love my iPhone. It can do lots of cool stuff like playing videos, posting funny pictures, and you can even make mini movies with it. But I like it the most because it helps me stay in touch with friends and use the internet. It's like having the world at your fingertips. But sometimes you can find things that make the world seem bitter and dark. Some people use the internet only to make other people feel bad or threatened. Those people are cyber-bullies, and when they attack people on social media for no reason, they make the whole internet look bad. It's even worse when they can bully you by contacting you personally, because then you don't feel safe, and you feel like you can't use your phone for things that you're used to. One time I wanted to text with my friend Josh who trains with me at my dad's kung fu school, so we traded emails. I also emailed him my number so he could call or text me if he wanted to. I guess when I entered his email, I mixed up a letter, because I texted him a few days later and it wasn't Josh. I didn't know right away, because the person on the other end just texted me and started making funny silly jokes. I laughed, so I didn't really think much of it. Then he started making jokes and comments that I thought were inappropriate. I asked him, “Josh, when did you start talking like that?” He said something weird like “I always have,” so I decided to test him.

Professional Athlete Training Program (2017)
Professional Athlete Training Program (2017)
Grand Master Valery Prosvirov offers a world-class training program specifically designed for professional athletes. Traditional Chinese Martial Arts (TCMA) combined with traditional Chinese medicine is the perfect system for achieving physical and mental excellence. The lifestyle of the professional athlete is very demanding, and an athletes training regiment must be perfect to ensure the greatest success and the healthiest career. After 40 years of intensive training, Valery Prosvirov is one of the world's greatest Masters of Traditional Martial Arts. His training and teaching has afforded him complete knowledge of the form and function of the human body. He is an authority on the philosophical and mental aspects of training the individual. Valery offers world-class personal training and consultation for professional athletes—guaranteed to improve speed, strength, endurance, flexibility, coordination, and all around bounce. TCMA is a time-tested, 5000-year-old technology of human health and wellness. When practiced correctly, it will clear the path towards limitless human potential--ultimately perfecting the health of the body, and prolonging an athlete's playing day career. Do not allow age or injury to limit you from living up to your full potential. In the current world of professional sports, doctor's and trainers have incorporated countless new technologies and trendy methods of physical development, but have these methods really worked? The constant headlines of devastating injuries and careers-cut-short are a sad reminder that very few athletes today are actually being trained and treated the right way. Traditional Chinese Martial Arts is the right way. Hard work can get you very far as a professional athlete—but working smarter, staying healthy, and getting the most out of your time and effort is what will separate you from your opponent. You can do this when you join forces with Grand Master Valery Prosvirov. The world's best should work together.

Valery is a true master of Kung Fu. He might be the only real one on earth. His programs and classes are amazing for body development, health, coordination, and technique--I have discovered a lot more of the perks of being human since I began training at the Golden Dragon. I have been coming here nearly every day for four months. The classes are always challenging and always fun. It's a lively, focused environment. The teaching is dedicated and inspired and extremely professional-- and I think everybody in class feels inspired by eachother. It seems almost everybody that comes here has a story about why they chose to take their health and well-being more seriously. We all faced harsh truths and felt a call to action--and somehow it seems to have led us all to the Golden Dragon. Valery is so knowledgeable and so thoroughly authentic--anybody with interest in real Martial Arts should meet him. Anybody looking to become healthier and more physically capable should come talk to him. His technique is something to see--he has so much knowledge and fighting experience to share, and his physical condition is unmatched by anybody else in town.  Kung Fu is much more than a business for him--it is his life, his path to reality, self-realization, and proper health . I think he is keeping Kung Fu and Tai Chi and Chi Gong alive for the future. It is a serious undertaking and classes here reflect this dedication.  
The Main Concept
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.

People often say that the martial arts have their own philosophy, but the truth is that the philosophy of the Martial Arts cannot be isolated from Philosophy in general.  Philosophy can be defined as everything that surrounds us. Philosophy is reality: where we live, what we breathe, and what we think. Therefore, the Martial arts are a part of philosophy, and not vice-versa. Popular conception divides philosophy by time and territory— Eastern Philosophy, Ancient Philosophy, Modern Philosophy, Religion, etc… These beliefs often stand in opposition to each other, but they have a general purpose that unites them all—Their effort to explain the truth. If all of these philosophies removed the subjective and fictional, what remained would be the truth. The truth is the same for all people—and so reality itself is our one universal human philosophy. Morality is a part of this philosophy—success for a human life demands doing the right thing:  Do not oppress the weak, do not kill, do not steal—all of these actions are terrible for the mental and physical health of the perpetrator and society as a whole—this has been known for thousands of years. The desire to make the world a little better, and to better one’s self, is innate to all healthy humans.

The practice of Kung Fu lends itself to a greater health and a greater understanding of reality—This is what we strive to do at the Golden Dragon Martial Arts School in Los Angeles.
