May 31st marked a momentous occasion in the martial arts world; this day marked the video documentary release and honorary life tribute of martial arts legend Eric Lee. Grandmaster Valery was in attendance along with many other renowned figures in martial arts, including legendary cinema action choreographer Ewart Chin and acclaimed instructor and Owner/Chief Editor of Sidekick Publications Allen Woodman.
In the end of May 2015, Golden Dragon summed up the results of its academic year and proudly awarded its best students. Their hard work and great efforts in learning Martial Arts put them onto the next level and gave them the status of Dragon Warriors. We are so happy that our young warriors continue practicing and making next steps on the great path of Kung Fu. Keep on, guys, - so many adventures wait for you ahead!
With our 26 new Dragon Warrior students matriculated and ready to kick into the next level of training, Golden Dragon plans on offering even fun and intense training in the coming school year, including Stunt work, acrobatics, and forms, as well as Martial Art Performance for the Camera! We will also be putting emphasis on the scholastic aspect of kung fu, such as philosophy and history of martial arts. Our hope is not simply to create better fighters; we want our students to also become better people. Congratulations again, young Dragons!!
With the myriad of things constantly going on in Kung Fu of Golden Dragon, one thing is never far from Master Valery's mind; his personal vision of changing the world with traditional principles of Kung Fu. He has been working toward this goal with his self-pinned series, Lessons of Fate. The first installment, Wisdom, was a mystic, ethereal take on an ancient Chinese tale. Its sweeping yet well-tailored message served as a proper prequel for the second installment, Dignity.

From a beginning, I felt that studying traditional Kung Fu was something that would embrace great part of my life. And now, my life revolts around this without a doubt. Training with Kirill Nesterenkov opened my eyes to see the world and myself in a different way. Priorities change, thus this has been a process of inner change. A process infinitely far away from reaching completion (if there is such a thing), but it fills my life with the search of perfecting myself by the way of Kung Fu.
"The Russian Dragon" Master Valery Prosvirov will be holding a lecture and workshop on May 17, 2015 discussing the history, theoretical basis, and practical application of Chinese Kung Fu and Yang style Tai Chi Chuan.
Have you ever watched your favorite kung fu flick (Ip Man, Enter the Dragon, Tai Chi Zero) and wondered, "How would that work in real life?" Master Valery has both the wisdom and knowledge to explain not only these, but many other mysteries of the ancient Chinese martial arts.

On March 22nd, our school was honored to receive a special guest who is well-renowned in the martial arts world. Sensei Allen Woodman, who has more than 40 years of martial arts training in numerous styles such as Kyokushin and Wing Chun (including direct tutelage under the late great Sosai Mas Oyama and Yip Chun, son of Yip Man), stopped by the school to commiserate with Master Valery and show some cool techniques to some of his esteemed pupils.
