Dana Point, CA, April 13, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Orange County's first Wing Chun Kung Fu institution opens May 1st on Pacific Coast Highway in Dana Point. The highly anticipated school, called The Dragon Institute, will teach both adults as well as kids the same legendary martial arts system studied by Bruce Lee.
For adults, The Dragon Institute will offer the full spectrum of mind and body self-growth. Adult classes will not only be a fun way to get in shape, but also the advantages of stress-relieving meditation, a whole new way to look at life’s challenges, applied practical science – all in a system of self-defense considered by many experts to be one of today's most effective methods.
For kids, ages 4 and up, The Dragon Institute goes way beyond teaching children how to defend themselves. It is, in every sense, a leadership development program that teaches life-lessons and character development for making the right decisions now... and in the future. The benefits are numerous, including a reward system that improves children’s self-esteem, a class structure that teaches discipline, activities to channel aggression, confidence-building skills and lifetime self-defense skills.
“The Dragon Institute is different in our approach to martial arts,” said Chief Instructor, Sifu Adam Williss. “For us, martial arts is our vessel for self-growth. No matter where you are in your life, at whatever age, your journey with us is about where you are going, not where you are. It is about a vision of your future and reaching higher levels of potential in your life. We use martial arts as the developmental gateway to an integrated approach to healthy living for the mind, body and soul.”
About Wing Chun
Wing Chun is considered by many experts to be one of the most effective self defense systems in the world. A highly efficient combat-tested system of self defense, fighting skills and defensive tactics, Wing Chun emphasizes aggressive, direct/scientific movement and realistic training. It has been taught and integrated into the training programs of hundreds of military & law enforcement agencies around the world such as the US Navy Seals, the FBI, CIA, the French RAID, German SEK units.
Unlike more classical martial arts, Wing Chun is not a style. It is neither fixed nor rigid. Instead it is a fluid and free process of intelligent fighting. It has no flashy movements. Its combat goal is to finish a fight as quickly as possible. Wing Chun has a philosophy based on simplicity, directness and practicality. It uses physics to determine the best way to move and defend oneself.
