• Dragon Flag
In the video below you’ll find an advanced core strength drill called the “Dragon Flag”. This exercise was originally popularized by Bruce Lee. It uses muscles from the entire torso, but mainly the core muscles in the lower back and abdominals are working. At Ferus Fitness Fight Club we train a lot on core strength, although no muscles are left behind – we run circuit training drills covering most muscle groups – from the head down to your feet. There is also plenty of cardio training (so bring lots of water, so that you stay hydrated!). For those interested in sparing, there is plenty of that as well.

Our training philosophy is to leave your ego at the door. Our main goal is to stay healthy, strong, and in-shape. There is no room for tough guys at this gym. We’re all about learning from each other, building confidence, and having a strong balance between the mind and body. The training team currently consists of men and women ranging in ages from 16 up to 46 years old. But all ages are welcome. If you’re interested,then training schedule can be found here. Private lessons outside of these hours are also available upon request. Our trainer, Karel Ferus and I have over 40 years of combined martial arts experience. So we bring a wealth of knowledge to the students. For those that want to learn Karate, Muay Thai, Kickboxing, Jiu Jitsu, Mixed Martial Arts, or just self defense basics, there is something for everyone. It’s also about learning from each other, no matter what level you’re at – everyone has something to contribute.
Pricing for sessions at the Prague training facility are very reasonable. More details can be found at fffc.cz, or feel free to contact me by leaving a comment below. If you need martial arts equipment, then Karel Ferus has negotiated discounts at the leading martial arts stores in Prague, so we’ve got that covered.
For those interested in something more intense, there is also a full day training camp every three to four months in Žabonosy, Czech Republic – about a one hour drive outside of Prague. Training varies at the camp but normally there are 3 two hour sessions. Lunch and dinner is included in the camp fee.
I would like to dedicate this blog post to my cousin, Richard Kende, who is a black belt in Judo and Jiu Jitsu. He was also a champion judoka in Czechoslovakia throughout the 1980’s. I love him like a brother, and I respect him as an athlete, friend, and entrepreneur. If you’re ever in Sydney, Australia, then take a trip up to The Entrance and stay at the Jetty Motel, which he owns with his wife Martina. The accommodations are awesome, and they consistently get great reviews on TripAdvisor.com. If you want to relax, then Richard is also a professional masseuse! Alternatively, if you’re looking for something more unique, you may be able to convince him to teach you a few martial arts secrets 🙂
For readers snickering at the Dragon Flag as a relatively easy stunt, keep in mind that Bruce Lee did this exercise when he was 135lbs (61kg), and in his early 30’s. Now try it when you’re 200lbs (91kg), and 46 years old 😉
