Welcome To Rising Crane

My name is David, and I have spent my entire life learning and teaching martial arts.

After twenty five years of running a full time school, my new mission is to bring online courses and interactive lessons to you from my academy in the UK, plus China and many other places.

 If you would like to preview some of my lessons free of charge, there are introductory lessons for Kung Fu and Tai Chi where you can watch the first part free.

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 : )
