Students talk: Father and Son on Kung Fu (2014)

Father

How did your family decide your child should start practicing Martial Arts?
Martial arts is widely known to be beneficial to one’s overall being. It provides skills that are useful in every facet of life: self defense, patience, discipline, flexibility, strength, focus, confidence and to some, even spirituality.

How long has your child practiced Kung Fu at Golden Dragon?
Around 7 months

Do you notice any changes in his/her behavior since he/she started the classes?
When our son started Kung Fu classes, we immediately noticed a difference in his attentiveness, his ability to focus and complete tasks. In addition we (and his teachers) noticed improvement in his school work, tennis lessons, baseball and art classes. Dima teaches with a balance of playfulness and discipline that allows for the kids to learn skills and become fit while having fun. My son loves going to class!

What are your favorite things here in GD?
The staff which is a family are all wonderful and talented people and just a pleasure to learn from and be around. Valery is a true master of martial arts with Dima following right behind! I used to just drop off my son for class, but then got the urge to join in! It was an excellent decision as I now am benefiting from those hours by getting in great shape and learning some new skills, rather than drinking more coffee…Kung Fu is now something I share with my son.
