Maslenitsa is traditionally celebrated to mark the end of the harsh Russian Winter. It is a week-long festival of pancakes and parties, taking place in the seven days before lent. Russians expertly gather for fun and food, and we enjoy sweet and savory "blinis" (Russian Pancakes) all week as the official flavor of Maslenitsa.
Winter in Los Angeles is certainly different from Winter in Moscow--a little more sun, a few less snowballs, and no dangerous icicles falling from the buildings--but our heritage, the coming of Spring, and delicious Blinis will always be worthy of celebration.
The taste of delicious desserts mingled with the smell of authentic Chinese tea as students and friends gathered to celebrate.
The event was highlighted by a lecture from our Headmaster Valery Prosvirov - who contemplated the excitement of the new year, and emphasized the opportunities and challenges that meet us with each and every new day.
The lecture was followed by a performance by Sky Shachory, who was introduced as the school's new instructor assistant. Sky performed both Yang and Wudang style Tai Chi in a form specially choreographed by our Headmaster.
The Golden Dragon is a community and a family. We come together daily to train, to learn, to get healthy, and to have fun. We throw awesome parties to celebrate special occasions, but we can always find reason to celebrate our enthusiasm for each other and Kung Fu.
We appreciate everyone who joined us. We hope to see you soon. May the Fire Rooster bring a great year to us all!

- At Golden Dragon Martial Arts School, the only thing we love more than kung fu is teaching others to love kung fu as well. This is why we hold such high esteem when promoting our students and awarding them for a job well done. On May 7, 2016, we held our 2nd Annual Golden Dragon Award Ceremony and Demonstration at our Santa Monica location. While all of our students exhibited exceptional growth and improvement, our shining stars were the young Pandas who have been moving up the ranks as fast as greased lightning. Our two youngest pupils, Emma Dorner and Zoya Kalinsky, were awarded with the titles of Dragon Warriors, making them the youngest to receive the titles at our school.
