The Dragon Institute - Beyond Self-Defense!
Although highly effective self-defense is our top priority, unlike most other schools, The Dragon Institute's approach also is founded upon traditions of deep philosophical and mind/body healing.
- Philosophy - The mental and philosophical applications to modern day life, and endeavors of self-improvement, are truly boundless. Within each of our classes, there are life-changing lessons that have the ability to revolutionize the way you look at things. At The Dragon Institute, you learn to look at all things in whole new way... more balanced, simplifying issues, clarifying opportunities, prioritizing tasks, operating in the present, becoming more efficient, confident and self assured, relaxed and calm, focused and aware, and much more!
- Health - Wing Chun is an internal art. The exercises you will learn are in complete harmony with Traditional Chinese Medicine. Wing Chun includes powerful healing movement and preventive medicine immersed within its concepts and practices. It uses deep breathing, moving meditation, postural healing and energy sensitivity drills to cleanse, balance, and circulate the body's vital energy (qi).What's more, Wing Chun also builds flexibility, muscle strength and endurance in the legs, abdominal muscles, arms, hips and back. It puts emphasis on spinal and pelvic alignment, breathing, a rooted connection to the ground, healthy movement habits, developing a strong core and improving coordination and balance. Make no mistake, Wing Chun can lead to improved health, vitality and a more relaxed mind and body!
