What is Dragon
A Self Defence for people that don’t
like violence, but want to be able to defend themselves and their
family. Dragon Kung-Fu (a derivative of Wing Chun) was developed
by Nuns approximately 350 years ago in China. The style incorporates
simple direct moves, which can be learned by people of all ages
and fitness levels. Developed by a female - the style relies on
mental alertness and physical sensitivity, rather than brute force.
After a Few Months Training, the self-defence aspect becomes secondary
to the challenge and enjoyment of learning a skilled art. Chief
Instructor Simon Marriott more than 20 Years of practical experience
in the Security Industry. He uses realistic down to earth training
methods in modern facilities.
