Free Online Training Course – Learn Kung Fu Today

Introduction

Hi. Welcome to Martial Arts City. And welcome to my new FREE online Kung Fu training program. It’s designed to teach you Kung Fu for Self Defence, as best as I possibly can, over the internet, for free.

This course is still new – not yet complete. Videos will be added soon, so you may wish to bookmark this site and check back later.

What equipment will you need?

Strictly speaking, you don’t need any equipment to follow this course – just an internet connection. But it will be very beneficial to your training if you can get hold of the following equipment.

  • A punch bag – ideally a Heavy Bag. Ideally capable of being punched at head height and kicked upwards at groin height (beware of attachment points on the underside of many bags). Set somewhere that you can step around it, at least partially, and are unobstructed in throwing punches at head height and lower down the body. The heavier the better. Water is the recommended filling, but any filling will do.
  • Simple unpadded Leather Gloves will be good for protecting your skin when using the punch bag. Being unpadded, they will have a close-to-bareknuckle feel and won’t hinder your movement so much as heavily padded gloves would.
  • Wooden Dummy – Wing Chun style. It should have two high arms crossed over, roughly level with your chest; one low arm roughly level with your naval; and one leg with a bend at roughly knee height. Ideally set on a large wooden frame which itself is attached to a wall, so it can absorb energy very well.
  • A human Training Partner – ideally they will be of a similar height to yourself, or taller. But if you’re very tall, then your attacker is more likely to be shorter than you, so it’s equally worthwhile training with someone shorter than you in that case.

What style will you learn?

In this course, I am teaching my own style of Kung Fu. You could simply call it Kung Fu.

It’s the accumulation of everything I’ve learnt. It’s primarily based on Wing Chun and Tai Chi, but is also influenced by Jeet Kune Do, Xing Yi and other martial arts.

Having said that, practically every move I am teaching on this course was also taught very well by Bruce Lee, coincidentally, so I’ll be using his pictures & videos to supplement my own.
