Natalia Miftakhova - interview (2013)

At Golden Dragon Dmitry Prosvirov was my instructor for four years - a year as a group instructor and then I had three years of personal trainings with him. The reason why it was Dmitry who I asked to train me individually was not because he had already been my instructor for a year but because he was the best teacher and trainer I'd ever had. The best because he accumulates all personal and professional qualities needed for being a kung-fu instructor.
The main thing about Dmitry is that he's right in his place. He loves kung-fu, it's his life and he's really keen to tell the world about this martial art, and not only tell but also show and teach. He's deeply and absolutely convinced that kung-fu as a way to health and healthy lifestyle helps people enjoy better lives and be happier. Having practiced kung-fu for more than four years now, I can say that it is really so. Dmitry has shown me this way by his own example and virtue. When you know that you're doing something very important you become best in your profession. This is just about him.
