This is the Tanto Knife Fighting program from Kung Fu Living
Kung Fu Living is a complete online training 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 Tanto is perhaps the most obviously relevant to most people’s lives because a knife is the weapon most likely available, we all tend to have a draw full of them in our kitchen. It is also the weapon an assailant is most likely to have.
While the Tanto is a specific shape and is derived from a traditional Japanese dagger the techniques you will learn will of course work for any knife.
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 Tanto – and the second form is for double Tanto.

You will learn

✓ The primary deflecting blocks, most often needed in real conflicts
✓ The primary sweeping cuts with an understanding of their relative tactical strengths
✓ How to step with the greatest speed and tactical effect
✓ How to deliver a counter stab that is aimed at ending a confrontation with the greatest speed
✓ Tactical use of attacking your opponent’s knife arm and how to utilise optimal timing and targeting
✓ How to adapt your strategy and techniques to incorporate the use two tantos for maximum effectiveness
✓ The overall strategy for finishing any real fight in the shortest possible time for your safety


• Some space, most peoples’ living room will be sufficient
• Two practice tantos, but any similar objects will suffice. We recommend you DO NOT learn these forms with live bladed weapons.

This course is for

• Anyone wishing to learn the use of one and two Tantos or similar knives in real life self defense

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.
