“Kung Fu – a passion pursued with discipline and a discipline pursued with passion.”
Kung Fu Living is a complete system that incorporates the most efficient techniques with modern teaching methods and takes advantage of the most recent developments in the neuroscience of skill acquisition.
As a complete system for real life combat it includes many weapons and Escrima Sticks is one of the most obviously relevant to most people’s lives because a stick is a weapon often available, a walking stick of cane works perfectly well with these techniques.
While the Escrima stick has a particular heritage of techniques and has developed into a tournament style in itself. Please note the techniques taught here are for real life scenarios and not for simple point scoring in a sport. This difference will be evident to those with previous stick training as tournament techniques often involve delivering multiple fast, but light strikes that may not bring a real fight to a speedy resolution.
In this program you will learn Two forms (a form is a choreographed set of moves that enable you learn the most useful techniques within the context of other techniques).
The first form you will learn is for a single Stick and the second form is for double Sticks.
Each 8-part form is short enough to be remembered easily (this is martial arts, not memory training), and should be practiced until it can be done without thinking. Each form is put together in a way that if any part of it were used automatically, in a violent confrontation, it would deliver a conflict winning combination.
The program is set out for you to train every day using several short videos. Adding to your skills in easy to follow steps, you will build superb combat skills that will become second nature to you.
Some videos are called Repeat Drills, these are of simple techniques that you need to learn so that you can do them without thinking. Once you press play, they will simply repeat continuously until you hit stop. This will enable you to practice each movement many times with a constant visual reference to help you get it right. You don’t want to practice until you get it right, you want to practice until you can’t get it wrong.
It is tempting to rush ahead, but you will find that to learn these skills thoroughly, it is best that you master each part as you go even if that means repeating the same day several times. Excellence takes patience and determination. Remember “Kung Fu” means “mastery through discipline.”

Sifu. Mark Ringer Kung Fu Master, Therapist, Teacher
Mark began his Martial Arts training as a teenager, becoming a regional boxing champion before moving on to train in Kyokushin Karate and then Tai Kwon Do.
Working as a licensed doorman helped see him through his honours degree in philosophy. After twelve years of working pubs and clubs as a head doorman and running his own security company, he was able to develop and test the most effective control techniques incorporating many concepts from the Northern Chinese Kung Fu style of Kempo which he was studying during this period. He was fortunate to train in restraint techniques under the highest ranking Ju Jitsu instructor at the time and have one to one training with an expert in Chin-Na (seize and control techniques).
After being a manager and consultant for international private security firms, in 1999 Mark took a change of career direction to become a high school Head of department for Philosophy and Ethics & Religious Education for 10 years, becoming a specialist in both ancient and modern eastern philosophy. Another change of direction was to train in the Southern Chinese Kung Fu style of Wing Chun where his instructor was an enthusiastic young Sifu. William Bridgman.
As a certified practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming and Hypno Therapy he is able to help people develop their psychological strengths and he is one of the few professionally qualified and experienced teachers working full time in martial arts.
Mark has a wealth of experience in the martial arts; developed in the dojo, tested in competition and practiced in real life. He has a great depth of understanding in the philosophical and spiritual aspects of Kung Fu and as a true master is uniquely able to pass on the rich complexities of these ancient arts.
With his colleague Sifu. William Bridgman he founded a Kung Fu academy that has run for over a decade and successfully trained over 1000 students.
His unique combination of modern neuro-science with ancient philosophical structure has proved incredibly effective in enabling people to change all aspects of their lives.
