I offer 3 types of online training:

  1. Courses on the Thinkific Platform. These can be purchased any time and you can learn at your own pace. It is like buying a video course and manual.
  2. Online Academy membership. This is more like learning at my school as you will join at the beginning of a course and learn with other students. I give feedback, corrections and weekly lessons. This is much more interactive.

There are two FREE courses on the platform (one Kung Fu and one Tai Chi). I hope you will enjoy them and get great benefits from the practise.

To join these- you need to click the following link to go to my online classes.

The third option is individual (1 to 1) coaching via Skype or Zoom.

For this, you can book a session below:



I am doing a very few online coaching appointments via Skype, Zoom,  FaceTime or Messenger.

You will also get a download of the video lesson for your reference, so you can watch as many times as you want.

Some things I can help with:

  • Corrections of forms/technique in Hap Kyun or Tai Chi.
  • Tips for training progressions- help if you have hit a plateau and want to get to the next level.
  • Help with conditioning, strength, endurance, maximising your practise.
  • Understanding the meaning, applications, philosophy and some deeper aspects of the training, (as much as can be passed online)
  • If you have a partner or sparring video to send me – I can do an analysis/breakdown and give you specific tips to improve your performance.
  • MMA- ‘Siege MMA’ principles and how to integrate striking and grappling effectively.
  • How to apply your kung fu /tai chi (any style) for combat sport/MMA, or realistic 21st century self defence: Stand up, clinch, ground, weapons etc.
  • Traditional kung fu philosophy, meditation, breathing exercises etc.

You don’t need to be advanced for this- I love working with people of all levels, but I only want to work with students who will implement, make improvements and follow up! 

For current students or ex members- you can book a short 20 minute private lesson to correct a set or work on a specific section or movement that you are working on. 

How to begin:

1. Purchase a  session via the links below (Either a full 1 hour, or a 20 minute session)

2. Email me to organise a time slot: david@risingcrane.co.uk

3. If you have any questions about this- message me on the ‘contact’ page in the menu.

I look forward to working with you!
