Martial Arts School

Golden Dragon

School of Chinese Martial Arts « Golden Dragon » provides training to traditional Kung Fu in Los Angeles since 2012 and in Moscow since 2001.
Classes are held six times a week.

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.

Valery Prosvirov & his son, Dmitry Prosvirov will keep me alive, younger and healthier than any medicine I know of.  I first met them when I was 78 with the firm belief that  the best exercise for someone my age was changing channels on my tv.  My posture was terrible, my balance was pathetic and my flexibility was only good in the hand I used for the remote channel changer. Martial Arts training?  Kung Fu technique? Ancient Chinese breathing exercises?  Weights?  Falling down and getting up exercises?  I had started to fall down without any training before so who needed it.  Surely you jest! Yet they were so confident of the value of all of this in every person’s life that they said my first lesson could be “free”.  So who could resist that magic word?  And that is how it began for me. Today at 80 I am in better overall shape than most men my age…although most men my age are dead.

I began my training in kung fu at Golden Dragon Martial Arts School with Head Master Valeriy and Head Instructor Dmitry just over six months ago. I have never enjoyed any type of exercise or fitness activity more, and I have never benefitted more, both physically and mentally from training. At 31 years old, I can confidently report that I am in the best shape of my life thanks to the instructors at Golden Dragon.

The Chinese Tradition
The Chinese Tradition
Chinese tradition is the special way of taking in the world, practically seeing the world through the eyes of Chinese. It might seem an impossible task for people who were not born in China. The Chinese think like that (not all of them though). But it is far from truth. To see the world without personal preferences but full of colours and shades is possible for everybody. According to the admonitions of old masters to attain this state one needs to have clear soul, modesty and honesty. If these qualities are possessed, according to the philosophy of Taoism (the main philosophy of all the Chinese) the master will appear in front of the person, who will help one to attain Ude – virtue, the warrior’s virtue.

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.

Choosing the Style
Choosing the Style
The ancients used to say: possibility of choice is the worst illness of mind. Forgetting that modern people spend precious time in life looking for ones personal self, choosing clothes, things, which are supposed to define the invented image. They dash between “what to do” and “how to act”. Thinking that argument invokes the truth, they follow the path of “try and mistake” and eventually end up like Pushkin’s old woman: the wash-tub’s broken, tons of mistakes, and the truth’s still nowhere around. Certainly no-one in the world can avoid mistakes, but if one succeeds in stopping to think in clichés (like everybody) and pay more attention to oneself, but not from the position “I want”, but from the position “who am I”, “what am I capable of”(unbiased, not in dreams) and only after “what do I deserve”, then the number of mistakes will recede by numbers. And if you add on it the understanding that life is action, theorising and reasoning about the truth will disappear because you will see it instead. It’s easy. Try it. And now let’s talk about what should be considered when choosing the style in martial arts. From the first sight it’s a difficult task, because if you start to simply name all the styles, directions and tendencies, and then write a book about it, I’m afraid it will be longer than “War and peace”. The thing is that styles get invented and books get written by whoever’s mind it crosses. Many people start one thing and without reaching any worthy results “studying for long time, whole seven months” consider, that it’s not for them, so they start inventing their own bicycle (even if it’s got triangular wheels). Then they buy a patent, register a federation and there it is – another pile ready for the dump. But let us leave the inventers alone and look at everything impartially.

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 »
