This was great.

David was very explicit in every move, and although I already knew the form, one or two points were clarified.

I found the movements in this course really well explained and demonstrated. The instructions on how to match breathing to the movements were also really clear. I found that knowing the names of the movements helped me to remember them in sequence. I don't always hear very precisely, so I would have found it really helpful and interesting to have the few Chinese words used shown in text boxes. A tremendously enjoyable course : )

About David

David Rogers has trained in Chinese martial arts since 1984. He is an indoor disciple of Master Deng Jan Gong. He is the only non-Chinese to have learned the entire Deng family Hap Kune system directly from Master Deng in Canton.

Fluent in Cantonese, he regularly returns to further his studies in ‘Kung Fu ('Hap Kune’ and ‘ ‘Hung Kune’) And Tai Chi (Taijiquan).

In 1995, he opened the ‘Rising Crane Centre’ where he teaches Kung Fu, Taiji and runs a clinic of traditional Chinese acupuncture.

He has taught martial arts around the world including Europe, Asia, America and the Middle East. He is a graduate of the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine, a member of the ‘British Acupuncture Council’ and served as the technical director for traditional kung fu to the ‘British Council for Chinese Martial Arts’ for seven years.

From 2005 to 2015, he trained ‘no gi’ Brazilian Jiujitsu with four times world champion, Braulio Estima, and has incorporated 'ground fighting' aspect into his classes. He has studied MMA in America, Hawaii and Thailand and believes that the evolution of mixed martial arts represents a valuable method for martial artists to legitimately test their skills, and debunk many of the myths prevalent in some classical martial arts.

David has coached NINE national and international champions in Kung Fu, Tai Chi and Mixed Martial Arts, and has had students win competitions in Europe, Hong Kong and China.

His sincere wish is to help his students reach their highest potential by teaching to the same exacting standards as he learned in China, while incorporating modern, scientific principles of coaching and physical training.
