Laurence Kalinsky: "If you are looking for more than the belt - this is the place" (2016)
  • 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)
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.

Maslenitsa: Crepe Day Celebration (March, 12, 2016)
  • No matter our culture, race, class, or upbringing, one thing most people can agree upon – we LOVE it when Winter ends and Spring rolls around! Many cultures have their own way of celebrating this momentous annual event (much like Americans and Groundhog Day), and Russia is no different. Preceding the upcoming celebration of Lent, Russians celebrate one of their oldest surviving holidays, called Masletnitsa, or Crepe Day. Kung Fu of Golden Dragon will be bringing this fun tradition to its students on March 12th as we seek to increase awareness and knowledge of our school's founders' history and customs.

Training with Masters Valery and Dmitry is a true blessing! 

I've been wanting to do martial arts since I was little and tried it several times but something wasn't right. As soon as I walked into Golden Dragon school and talked to the teachers I knew it was my school.
