The Best Traditional Chinese Martial Arts Training on the Web
We offer instruction in many different styles of Traditional Chinese Kung Fu. Internal and External Styles. Our Curriculum covers everything in the styles from exercises, energy work, forms, applications, and more!
Why Learn Kung Fu Online?
1. Health and Fitness
If you want a great workout that will keep you interested as you progress through the system, then Kung Fu training is what you are looking for. If you want fitness that is more than just calisthenics or a simple collection of drills and exercises that you will probably find boring in a couple of weeks, then you should learn Kung Fu.
One of the benefits of a great workout is how it can enhance your health. In addition to the Shaolin Kung Fu that we offer we also offer instruction in Tai Chi and Xing Yi. These internal arts are well known for their health benefits and are very popular throughout the world because of them.
2. Self Defence
Kung Fu is practical. Each movement can be used to defend yourself but its more than just a series of techniques. As you learn Kung Fu you train your mind and your body, you develop coordination and confidence, and you develop awareness. These aspects are essential when facing any situation. Of course the punches, kicks, joint locks, and throws help too.
All aspects of training are emphasized. Health, Fitness, Energy Cultivation, and Fighting and Self Defence. Each is important to understanding the meaning of Kung Fu!
Kung Fu training is part of a long and rich tradition. When you train at our school you become a part of this tradition.
As you learn Kung Fu you find that the practice is more than just kicking and punching. As you progress through an art you learn the basics, the principles, the forms, the exercises, the applications, but all of these are really a study of yourself. It is you who is doing the movements, and in time it may become more than something you “just” do. The understanding gained from long term practice becomes part of who you are.’
Join Students From Around The World…
Since starting to offer online lessons in 2010 we have had many happy students from all around the world. Here is what some of them had to say!
In the past I have studied various martial arts. I am very happy to have your videos here in my home and I am going very slowly but feeling extremely grateful for this offering because it works so well for me. Your site is actually an answer to a prayer for me. Your presence comes through so beautifully on the videos that I am able to get a feeling for the energy of the practice – which is very unusual for videos. And your teaching is so clear that I can actually follow what you are teaching.
Sifu Fick is knowledgeable and communicates well. He presents his video lessons in a clear, well produced and systematic way. The lessons are short enough to be easily digested and are always there for later review.It is incumbent on the student to practice a lot, and compare his own movements against the model that Sifu Fick demonstrates.Questions posted on the forum are always answered promptly in a clear and straightforward way. I see value in learning from Sifu Fick’s video lessons and would recommend this method to others.
I have been wanting to get back into the Five Family System for a while but there is not a certified instructor in my area. Also my work is very demanding and takes up a lot of my time and energy.I am thankful I found Sifu Fick’s online school. He is a certified instructor, so I can maintain lineage and achieve my goals.His videos are very good and he has an easy to follow teaching style that I believe even someone with no martial arts experience can learn from. If you are motivated, and want to learn this material, this online school can work for you, if you do your part. If you don’t have a certified instructor in your area, this is the next best thing.
