Chi Gong became an independent discipline not so long ago. Originally, it was created as a part of martial arts. Chi Gong has been developing and existing for thousands years for soldiers training in the army. Regular Chi Gong practice brings balance into your body and gives you strong health. And strength and endurance are the “side effects” of the Chi Gong.
But Chi Gong focuses not only on the physical body; Chi Gong practitioners become healthier spiritually as well. There is another definition of Chinese Chi Gong reflecting its essence: "Chi Gong is an effort of the will, expressed in the external action." Not the body determines how you move but your will. Primarily Qigong is training of the will. If you can train the body a few times a week, your willpower must be trained every day. These workouts combine spirit, mind and body and make the person whole.

Kung Fu of Golden Dragon's Children's Event (March 1, 2014)
With Dmitry out of commission and the kung fu menace Lu Shian overseeing the challenge, the young tigers had to step up and prove their worth. And prove it they did! The kids completed mental tasks, teamwork drills, and relay races all to show that they have what it takes to become kung fu warriors. They went all in on every event, from sack racing and cartwheels to crab-walking with medicine balls. And while most of them were small in stature, they all showed the wills of titans!
The parents were not to be showed up, though. Aside from learning new Chinese characters and Tai Chi stances, they also got to play Musical Chairs. At the end of the challenge, the Factor family emerged victorious and received the antidote and scroll as their reward. Thanks to everyone's effort, Lu Shian's plans were foiled and the school was safe again! We will be training even more Dragon warriors for years to come!
The second part of our fun-filled Family Day had everyone involved, working with exercises, drills and combos. Students from ages 3 to 83 got to work together as Dmitry led the group through punches, kicks, and blocks in preparation to mold new Dragon warriors. However, Dima and his students had their hands full upon the appearance of the kung fu menace Lu Shian (played by Bohannon Orr), who nefariously poisons Dmitry and takes away his kung fu abilities! Lu Shian's foul plans might just follow through, which would mean doom for the Golden Dragons. But in the spirit of true martial arts, the students did not give up and they did not give in. After a direct challenge from Lu Shian, Dmitry calls for the help of his newest Dragon Warriors to rise to the challenge and save himself and the school! Can our young disciples stop this new menace and save the day? Do they have what it takes to become Dragon Warriors? Stay tuned for the next installment and find out!
Kung Fu of Golden Dragon's Children's Event in Los Angeles, CA.

This informative workshop will demonstrate the beauty of traditional weapons which were used in China and Japan. The attendees will learn how to master the weapons and practice different techniques of Martial Arts.
The staff, or as it used to be called, the "Eyebrow height stick" was the most popular weapon in ancient China. People always had to defend themselves against bandits or wild beasts and the stick as a part of domestic life was always on hand. And circumstances themselves made suggestions. Very soon the staff became the basic weapon. From that indefinite time the staff technique started to be developed in China. Cheapness and quick production are big advantages of this weapon. Another good thing is its length, because it is much safer to fight from the distance of 2 meters with an enemy than just 1 meter.
