Our first shoot day on Lessons of Fate was all about action – fists flying, hip tosses and back-fists galore. Our second day of shooting in Bel-Air Los Angeles had our talent working just as hard, but this time the film's main hero, Dmitry Prosvirov, got to dabble in an art which was as fun and intriguing for him as it was difficult – acting. This day was a learning experience for all, and gave us a taste of everything that goes into the production process in front of and behind the camera.
Tuesday was a full day for everyone at the kwoon. This would be the day that all of the drills, reps, and meticulous choreography would pay off. Master Valery's cinematic brainchild, Lessons of Fate, is a working series that tells the story of a young man on a voyage toward self-discovery and enlightenment, and of the obstacles he encounters along the way. While the main character's journey is rocky, he wasn't the only one suffering from bumps and bruises. In the few short hours we spent filming, we gained enough bangs and bumps to remind us why martial arts cinema is one of the hardest professions in the world.
Preliminary fight choreography for Lessons Of Fate starring Dmitry Prosvirov and Bohannon Orr. The upcoming second chapter, directed and choreographed by Valery Prosvirov, promises just as much enlightenment as action!
Today Basil Masters, the White Dragon, stopped by the school for a visit - and on all days, our 2nd year Birthday Party! Master Valery was honored to show his awesome acquaintance the lay of the land, as well as some lightning-fast moves on the Wooden Man and the renowned - and dreaded - Two Finger Push Ups!! The two were happy to celebrate this momentous event together after their first meeting almost a year ago at the Martial Arts Hall of Fame...
Basil and Master Valery are excited to be working together, and are looking forward to pushing through numerous creative projects soon. Aside from upcoming sizzle shorts, their next project, Lessons of Fate, will be filled with action and wisdom, and will also usher in more opportunities for Golden Dragon's new Action Theater class! Stop by, and don't miss out!

A very long time ago, one great master said: do not be late to walk up the path of warrior. What does it mean for us, people living five centuries later?
