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.

When looking for a martial arts school it is very easy to be blinded by flashy names, colorful belts, and the promise of learning Bruce Lee moves. It is even more of a challenge to weed through the numerous options available in a city like Los Angeles especially when you have a precocious 5 year old who is taken in by martial arts. But for those of us lucky enough to have been welcomed into the Prosvirov family at Kung Fu of Golden Dragon, we surely understand the value of the gem that is hidden on Santa Monica Boulevard just passed Bundy. My family and I came to the school looking for an alternative to my daughter's physical therapy in January after searching for a bilingual Russian and English school, and in just two months the progress we have seen has been nothing short of astounding. Unlike in any other school, both my wife and I (I am 40) were able to sign up for lessons as a package with our daughter - turning kung fu into a family activity with the three of us partaking in classes together. It has become the highlight of our week.

Anti-Bullying: Solving the Whole Problem (2016)
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.

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 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.

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.
