So whether you are looking to become a Martial Arts master, learn how to train with weapons, enhanced mental well-being, developing your self-defence and countering skills, spiritual growth or improved physical energy, this is the KungFu training for you.

What You Get

You will be guided through 5 types of activity, not just Kung-Fu (wushu) and weapons training, every day.

You will also get 3 types of exercise that you can do with no equipment, for balance, flexibility and strength. These exercises are progressive and guide you by small steps towards excellence.

Wisdom teaching is broken down into daily, single topic videos that will help you grow in critical thinking and understanding of how you can best live in this world.

Guided meditations will enable you to develop your emotional control and give you the tools of personal character development.

The Chi Kung or qigong is used by many to enhance life energy and strengthen your immune system.

Structured Daily Goals

Taking the first step couldn’t be easier.

Each day when you open the app, you will see a list of training activities. The activities will guide you through the elements of Tao Te Kung Fu that together will enable you to grow and progress. As each activity is completed your progress is recorded.

You will have access to over 1000 videos, making up the most comprehensive Martial Arts curriculum available online.

You will be guided through 5 types of activity every day. The whole program can be completed in 130 days, but you can set your own pace, taking as long as you wish.

During the 30 day Foundation (basic) level you will work through three 10-day modules, learning your basic but essential skills in the 5 elements of the system.

The 50 day Intermediate level you will work through five 10-day modules. The wisdom and meditations are focused on the next level of discovering and recreating yourself in an image you choose.  You will learn dual weapons and more complex Kung Fu techniques and combinations.

The 50 day Advanced level takes you through the most advanced forms and weapons.  In this level you will learn five Chi Kung brocades, one for each of the elements that will enhance your Kung Fu.  Here you will learn the master principles of Eastern Philosophy.

Learn Kung Fu

Each day you will have up to 6 videos in unarmed combat training.  In each 10 day module, you will learn a new Kung Fu form. A form (sometimes called a pattern or Kata) is a choreographed set of techniques enabling you to learn each technique within the context of others.

You will learn each technique the way it will actually be performed in a real combat situation. Each technique is broken down and explained in detail and then put back together giving you the ability to perform complex movements unconsciously so that these skills will be available to you even in the highly tense situation of a real fight.

Previously viewed videos will always be accessible to you if you want to revisit them. Some videos are on a loop (repeat drills) so that you can repeat them until you can do them without thinking.  All this makes the Kung Fu Living program the quickest and easiest way to learn martial arts online.

Train with Weapons

You will learn a multitude of weapons, all of which have been chosen and developed to enhance your unarmed combat in various ways.

In foundation you will learn: Stick, Tanto and Nunchuck.

In intermediate you will learn: Double Sticks, Double Tantos, Double Nunchucks, Sai and Jo Staff.

In advanced you will learn: Chinese Broadsword, Chinese Straight Sword, Bo Staff, Butterfly Swords and an advanced Double Nunchuck form.

The culmination of skills from learning so many weapons will also enable you to improvise; using almost any object to hand as an effective weapon.

Enhance Energy with Chi Kung

Chi Kung has been practiced for thousands of years, but for many years, only in the palaces of emperors, Buddhist monasteries and Taoist hermitages.

Chi Kung has been considered as the ultimate preventative medicine.  It is believed to, not only, protect health, but also promote vitality and prolong life while cultivating spiritual awareness and insight.

While there is clinical evidence that practicing Chi Kung strengthens the immune system significantly, most practitioners would simply say that they feel the benefit of daily Chi Kung exercise in terms of enhanced energy in one form or another.  Some people say they feel more alive, some would argue they feel calmer, but all would recommend the benefits of this moving meditation that improves one’s coordination by linking controlled breath with mindful movement.  It literally has to be tried to discover its many benefits.

Over the course of the Kung Fu Living program, you will progress from a relatively simple, though no less effective, Chi Kung Brocade (called Brocade because traditional Chinese Brocade has 8 threads and the Chi Kung sets that you will learn all have 8 movements) through the Intermediate and somewhat more challenging brocade to 5 different sets that you will learn in Advanced, each associated with a different element.

Train with a Structured Exercise Regime

With our exercise and conditioning program, no matter where you’re starting from, you will make sustained progress throughout.  The program is designed to increase your flexibility, balance & coordination and overall physical strength.

Every day you will be presented with 3 different categories of exercise.

The strength exercises are chosen to increase functional strength, not only for your martial arts, but also to ensure you enjoy enhanced physical abilities for the rest of your life.

While flexibility is limited by your particular genetic makeup, you should aim to maximize your potential.  A Yoga instructor will guide you through each exercise to ensure perfect technique and position.

You will progress with a series of different controlled poses to improve your overall balance, coordination and spatial awareness, and the strength of multiple tiny muscles that constantly adjust to hold these poses.

These structured, progressive exercises will, not only, improve your Kung Fu, but also the fluidity and elegance with which you perform even the simplest of everyday activities.

Grow with Wisdom Teaching & Guided Meditations

Meditation, while practiced in some cultures for thousands of years, has recently become increasingly popular all around the world.  With literally tens of thousands of in-depth studies being done in universities, researchers from many academic fields have demonstrated it’s many benefits.  The list of major benefits to mental, emotional and physical health keeps getting longer.

The Kung Fu Living meditations are aimed at making meditation easier.  Whether you are looking for improved mental health, emotional well-being, better self-awareness, spiritual enlightenment, freedom from stress and it’s related illnesses or simply develop greater cognitive focus and clarity, you will find it here.

Designed to encourage deeper philosophical thinking, the daily contemplations are intended to be listened to and then considered throughout your day.  They begin with relatively straightforward, though largely ignored, concepts.

You will be shown the tools to know yourself better and change those aspects that you would like to improve, even as far as recreating yourself.  This isn’t just intellectual ideas, but consists of some of the most profound and life-changing wisdom.

These guided meditations are to help you quickly and easily develop your own meditation practice. It is a good idea to set aside a time each day when you will not be disturbed. While the videos are around 5 minutes long we would advise you to spend at least another 5 minutes continuing your own quiet meditation. These will demystify meditation and quickly replace anxiety with calmness in your day to day life.

Masters Academy Course Structure

Kung Fu Living is not just an easy way to learn Martial Arts at home but is an entire approach to teaching self-mastery through Kung Fu.  We have carefully analysed all techniques and skills that the style incorporates to develop a program in which skill acquisition accelerates through a spiral curriculum.

With a modern understanding of neuroscience and physiology, not available to ancient practitioners, it had been possible to develop teaching strategies that enable students to acquire advanced skills as well as the strategic concepts involving their use.

Each level creates the solid foundation of developed muscle memory upon which subsequent levels can be built.

On completion of each level you will receive a digital certificate to acknowledge your achievement.


Using accelerated learning protocols you will develop expertise in the shortest possible time.  Your first 30 days will see you creating habits that will become a lifestyle.  You will:

  • Learn how to meditate and be introduced to axiomatic philosophical thinking
  • Discover how Chi Kung is improving your energy level and coordination
  • Establish a foundational physiology upon which you can continue to build your strength, balance and increased flexibility
  • Learn very effective weapon skills that have created neurological pathways that will make subsequent unarmed techniques easier to learn
  • Grasp the use of a robust set of unarmed techniques that will confidently prepare you for many real-life self defence scenarios

intermediate module kung fu living logos - learn kung fu online


During this phase of your training, you will use foundational techniques together in more complex combinations but also incorporate many new elements.  At this stage you will:

  • Be introduced to specifically eastern philosophical ideas and principles of mindful living and deepen your meditation practice, learning to clear the mind
  • Learn a more complex Chi Kung Brocade enhancing your coordination and mind-body connection
  • Make a major step forwards in flexibility and balance whilst becoming aware of improving your overall strength
  • Begin developing ambidextrous weapon skills with the introduction of double weapons
  • Introduced to many new striking and blocking techniques requiring the development of asymmetrical dynamic body tensions


At the advanced stage students are learning to apply the different dynamics of the elements to their, increasingly personalized, use of Kung Fu.  You will:

  • Develop an understanding of the deeper philosophical concepts and learn to use meditation as a tool of personal transformation
  • Begin to master the use of Chi Kung through five different Brocades that both enhance and provoke the character of the elements
  • Push your body to heights of coordinated balance, flexibility and strength with some of the most advanced and challenging exercises
  • Master some of the most advanced weapon skills learned in some of the most difficult forms
  • Integrate the elements and their unique properties into your personal Kung Fu style as the learned skills become increasingly intuitive

Since i have been unable to attend classes, the structure of each day has been brilliant
I love the way it is set out. You just take these little steps every day and you can actually see the progress you’re making. I now structure the rest of my day around the different bits. Love it.
I can't believe how easy it is. Each individual thing you learn is really easy to pick up, but when you look back, you realise that you’ve developed these great skills.
