Kung Fu

Kung Fu simply translates as – 1. Good work or good job. 2. The time spent on the achievement of excellence in any activity. or 3. Mastery. It is in this context that the term Kung Fu is widely used in China. However, there yet exists another meaning. Throughout the entire world Chinese martial art is known as Kung Fu. There’s a saying in China that goes like "If you have attained mastery in something, it means you can do anything." Ever since the ancient times, people who practiced martial arts, upon being asked - "What are you doing?", would respond - "I’m reaching excellence in martial arts." Which in Chinese sounds like - "kung fu wushu."

Over time, people have noticed that the mastery in martial arts extends to the entire life. Kung fu wushu makes a man healthy and strong. Not only can he strike lighting fast, but can also think making the right decisions much faster than ordinary people. A man practicing martial arts skillfully handles fear, and therefore uses morale much more often than others, while excellent coordination and knowledge of own abilities ensure positive results in almost any activity that he concentrates on. All these factors, plus the natural human necessity to simplify life had led to a shortening of the phrase “kung fu wushu” to simply “kung fu”, which reflects the main purpose of the practice of martial arts.

In Golden Dragon, we use the term “kung fu” to describe the foundations of Chinese martial arts. However, it’s not a style that reflects the Chinese way of fighting - it is mainly the foundation without which martial arts turn into sport or gymnastics, losing virtually all of its value and essence. Kung Fu - is the right, from the physiology, biomechanics, and coordination point of view, efforts of movement, giving a person the opportunity to use its potential as efficiently as possible.

The Path to Great Potential Opens Up during Childhood

‘Tornado’ might be one of the best words to describe a kid’s energy. Of course, every child is different: they can be quiet or restless, serious or playful, or creative, or funny... You can apply thousands of adjectives, but one thing is common for all the kids all over the world: they are a perpetual volcano of energy. It’s up to their parents to channel this energy into the right direction, discover their talents as early as possible, and make the best out of them. It’s not an easy task. Dear parents, we are willing and able to help you on this journey. Here we explain why we are certain we can do it.

Above all, the Golden Dragon is a martial arts school, not a competitive sports organization. We don’t strive to extract maximum results from our student in the shortest possible time and get the most medals in competitions. Our priorities lay in improving the health and expanding the actual capabilities of a real person. It’s hard to argue that any talent should be raised on a solid foundation. One universal foundation for anything is HEALTH. Here at the Golden Dragon, we use health-improving methods tested by time. For five thousand years, those who practice Chinese Kung Fu get phenomenal results, and not just in health improvement, but in overall self-development.

Kung Fu for the Seniors

At about the same time, approximately when an individual turns 50, to every person on earth there’s the same unwanted intruder knocking on the door. It’s the tax inspector of our life by the name of AGE. With profound fear and great hesitance, we let him in. And he, it should be mentioned, casually enters our house and very discourteously begins to rearrange our entire live according to his rules. He does so very boldly and shamelessly while relying on the "authoritative" opinions of others, who repeat in unison - "You're not young any more, it's time to slow down. At your age there’s plenty you shouldn’t do." Besides that, everyone starts treating you condescendingly and offer you to sit down. Even though you still have lots energy and feel just fine, it just seems that nobody cares. In this way the standard public opinion is born, having accepted which, each time look at yourself in the mirror, you see - Old Man- running across your forehead.

But is it right? Should we listen to the subjective opinions of others and let this blatant guy by the name of Age, who can’t even be reason with because he only listens to himself, into our lives? Absolutely not!

Kung Fu is a gem of Chinese civilization and during the teaching process we strive to preserve its original purity. However, this does not imply that we are oblivious to everything that is new and beneficial; It means that while teaching we pay the greatest of attention to even the littlest of details. We are persistent, demanding and always practice what we preach. The ancients called Kung Fu the art of life and for us its most important aspect is QUALITY.

Before applying to train at Golden Dragon, you should know - we're not a fitness club! Our training is not just the attainment of martial art skills and development of the body. Our training is painstaking work to improve the physical, mental and emotional health; it is the aspiration to develop the full potential inherent in a man; it’s the acquisition of the ability to truly feel your capabilities and requirements, evading selfish demands of a subjective mind.

Individual Classes

Individual classes have qualitative difference from group ones, because the teaching instead of being averaged for everybody is based on your own abilities (physical and mental).

Because of deep submersion into the process of training you have much higher results. For this there are two preconditions without fail: first of all the lessons get costly, and second: I’m always hovering over you – you basically have no choice but to work.

Everything that is included in the traditional studies of Kung Fu is studied in the individual lessons, there are absolutely no trifles.

Practice shows, that individual lessons are more effective and people don’t tend to come back to the group. But even in this case it is important to remember the main secret of success in martial arts – it’s tedious training, everything else is an illusion. And you will have to do everything yourself, I will only show you “how” and watch carefully that everything’s done in the right order.

With all the positive sides of individual training there’s still one (as usual) main problem - there are only 24 hours in a day.

All the other questions can be discussed on the phone or when we meet.
