About Green Dragon
WHILE THE REASONS FOR OUR SUCCESS AND ACCLAIM ARE VARIED, WE CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING TO BE SOME OF THE BASIC REASONS WE CAN BE DIFFERENTIATED FROM EVERYONE ELSE:
At GREEN DRAGON the EMPHASIS is on the LEARNING, PRACTICE, and MASTERY of RARE and COMPLEX CLASSICAL KUNG-FU FORMS. This is the way it was in history and we have some of the most artistic and yet practical sets available in modern times.
The MECHANICS of TRAINING at GREEN DRAGON are also in the CLASSICAL TRADITION-- VERY RIGOROUS! Our people train hard- their strengths and skills are obvious on the videos.
GREEN DRAGON teaches all 72 of the CLASSICAL CHINESE WEAPONS, not just the BASIC 18. SIFU ALLEN HAS TAUGHT 65 ADVANCED FORMS WITH 29 DIFFERENT WEAPONS JUST SINCE 1979!!
GREEN DRAGON has a curriculum known WORLD-WIDE for producing outstanding STRENGTH and SKILLS in WOMEN and MEN of small size.
GREEN DRAGON has a group of some of the FINEST TEACHERS in the martial arts today. The twelve SENIOR MEMBERS of the INSTRUCTIONAL TEAM have a total of OVER 250 YEARS of TEACHING EXPERIENCE BETWEEN THEM-- NOT COUNTING SIFU ALLEN'S 48 YEARS!
The DETAIL, ACCURACY, and OVERALL METHOD of PRESENTATION of the forms we have put on tape for you SETS US APART. GREEN DRAGON has closely monitored the market of kung-fu instructional videos; we observed what we felt to be FOUR MAIN AREAS OF WEAKNESS:
|(1) Most forms were NOT REALLY ADVANCED, NO MATTER HOW THEY WERE DESCRIBED IN ADVERTISEMENTS-- OURS ARE!!|
|(2) Most forms and styles offered were either LIMITED IN VARIETY and/or were READILY AVAILABLE FROM MANY SOURCES-- YOU WILL EASILY SEE THAT OURS ARE NOT!|
|(3) Most forms we reviewed were CHARACTERIZED BY LIMITED OR INCOMPLETE INFORMATION AND DESCRIPTION-- OURS ARE WRITTEN UP IN DETAIL.|
|(4) Most forms were VERY WEAK in adequately DEMONSTRATING THE FINE POINTS OF COMBAT APPLICATION (IF PRESENTED AT ALL)-- OURS ARE COMPREHENSIVE.|
AS A CONSEQUENCE OF OBSERVING THESE FOUR SERIOUS DEFICIENCIES, GREEN DRAGON MADE A CONCENTRATED EFFORT TO INSURE THAT WE WERE NOT GUILTY OF THE SAME SHORTCOMINGS. WE FEEL THE ADVANTAGES OF OUR METHODS WILL BE OBVIOUS TO YOU WITH YOUR VERY FIRST ORDER.
