Important Notice!
From March 2003, at the request of our distributor, Dragon Times will evolve into a regular magazine format publication called Classical Fighting Arts which will allow it to be more widely distributed. The publisher, writers, and design team will be the same. All paid subscriptions to Dragon Times will be honored in full, and existing subscribers need do nothing, they will simply receive Classical Fighting Arts instead of Dragon Times from March this year. Dragon Times currently has the second largest readership in the U.S. and we hope that the change to a more upmarket format will help us grow even more. We feel we have the very best writers in the business and welcome the opportunity to give their work greater exposure.

within our covers material on Boxe Francaise-Savate, Thai Boxing, English Prize Fighting, European Fencing, and other legitimate martial arts.
Technically Advanced
Backed by a technical advisory group of great ability including; Morio Higaonna 9th Dan; Shinyu Gushi 9th Dan; Kiyoshi Yamazaki 7th Dan; Yukiyoshi Marutani 7th Dan; Toshio Kuramoto 6th Dan; Hideharu Igaki 6th; and many others.
