Kung Fu for the Seniors

Life doesn’t move back, it only moves forward. Besides, it doesn’t matter if you’re 50, 60 or 90, at any age you have to take care of yourself and of your health by getting everything out of life that it has to offer. That’s the way it should be. But for some reason, that’s not the way it happens in most cases. Let's see - why?

Mankind, like life, is also moving forward, and, as it seems to us, very fast. Is this good? Probably not. Sometimes we run forward so fast, that in the process we miss some very important things.

For example - if we look into the depths of centuries, at a distance of approximately 1.5 – 2 thousand years, we’ll discover Qigong precepts for the novices at Shaolin that read as follows: "If a person is healthy at 30, then at 40 he is strong, at 50 powerful, and at 60 is unbeatable. And if his life is not over, then at 90 he retains joint mobility, visual acuity along with good hearing, and can travel 1000 li”. These instructions are based on a still more ancient treatise, "Yellow Emperor’s Canon of Internal Medicine " – that’s about three thousand years old. This canon is considered to be the oldest book on medicine and thorough research of it indicates that even in those early days, people were well versed in physiology, anatomy, and knew about the methods of preserving health far more than we do today.

How did this happen?! Quite simply, the speed at which we run to get more and more pleasure out of life is too high. At this rate, we cannot see what’s important. Love, happiness and health fly by in a continuous business commotion and ... we get what we get. At the same time, the well-developed pharmaceutical industry supports our life, while making at it lots and lots of money. It's a shame, isn’t it?

Nevertheless, there does exist an alternative path that leads to a full life at any age. It's called - PROFESSIONAL ATTITUDE TOWARD YOUR HEALTH! No one knows you better than you know yourself. Listen to yourself and help yourself, because there is no other help but self-help. That’s the real truth of life. Caring for yourself doesn’t make you selfish, it makes you healthier and, therefore, vital for all. It doesn’t matter how old you are, if you're alive – DEVELOP YOURSELF! Golden Dragon offers you an opportunity to try on yourself one of the oldest and most effective methods of self-development - Chinese martial arts. Kung Fu - is not a sport, it's a way. The way of continuous self-development, self-realization and self-expression at ANY AGE! We can prove it - because we are professionals.
