Lesson 1: what is 6 Dragons Kung Fu?
Be master of yourself through preparation, discipline and concentration
The 6 Dragons Kung Fu (shortened 6DKF) is at the same time:
- A training system (for sport, wellness and especially self-defense, read The true heart of 6DKF)
- A set of new / ancient combat techniques (grappling, striking, footwork, weapons, etc.), for more specific information read 6DKF: what does it teach?
- A lifestyle (made up of discipline, preparation and concentration, read The 6 Dragons Kung Fu’s way)
- A starting point for creating a personal fighting style (read A 6DKF for each one)
What you are about to begin is a project of life, peace and in-depth study of the physical / mental applications of the human being.
Our primary objectives
Starting from the most ancient tradition, the 6 Dragons Kung Fu aims at excellence through a completely new method (read The difference between 6DKF and other martial arts).
The 6 Dragons Kung Fu aims to forge a real warrior (readThe fighter and the warrior), in doing this it focuses on:
- The development of personal psychophysical skills (each of us has different qualities and defects)
- The internalization of the techniques and tactics of struggle, from the simplest to the most complex
- The ability to prevent critical situations and to apply the theory in real / practical and stress contexts
- The acquisition of physical / mental awareness and self-control (through meditation, management of bodily functions, etc.)
- The acquisition of skills related to communication through the various senses (deception, invisibility, etc.)
- The gradual elimination of psychophysical weakness (fear, insecurity, irrationality, fatigue, etc.)
- The construction of a strong, peaceful, helpful, positive and rational personality
- The gradual development of real martial skills (some of which take years to be acquired)
The 6DKF’s method
Our method is based on:
- Optimization of training times (read Optimizing the available time)
- Performance measurement to improve every day (read Measure, analyze and eliminate defects)
- Experimentation which, through errors, leads to the construction of real experience (read Measure ourselves with errors)
- A 360° view of the martial arts world (see the video Do not look at martial arts)
What 6DKF is not
The 6 Dragons Kung Fu:
- It has solid scientific foundations supported by real applicability (it does not teach esotericism, fantasies, superstitions, paranormal, mischief, etc.)
- Despite its aesthetics, it is not a choreography of movements, nor a search for acrobatics / juggling as an end in itself
- It is not a single martial art (starting from kung fu point of view our style includes its techniques, the style of the practitioner and the most effective parts of several others)
