When Sije Jamie presented the idea of creating a kung fu training online membership, I wasn’t actually on board with the idea. I think it’s because when I started training there wasn’t even an internet. People where still impressed with being able to play a few arcade games.
In my mind I thought, it’s not possible to learn kung fu online because you need a Sifu to teach you personally. Or how do you ever know if what you are doing works? What I wasn’t realizing though is I was watching videos on YouTube of other kung fu masters teaching and then when I was training with my partners I would try out the stuff that I saw.
At first I figured I was able to pick up the knowledge so easy because I was already actively training and maybe in part that was true. But what for whatever reason didn’t dawn on me was the fact that I really was learning how to do different techniques as well as look at things differently which gave me a deeper understanding of what I was doing.
It was Sije’s persistence and coming to the realization that I was learning stuff online that ultimately led me to partner up and build this site. If you are thinking about joining a site online to learn martial arts and wondering if it can really help you the answer is yes.
Will you be able to learn everything you need to learn from the internet alone? The answer is NO! Because you need to feel the energy of someone experienced in order to know if you are doing it correctly. <=== Here is why you can however learn kung fu online
Don’t let that discourage you though because the reality is you can learn so much without having a physical teacher. Kung Fu Training online is ideal for the person who doesn’t have time to physically get to class every week. It’s also great for a person who is looking to specifically learn things not found anywhere else like for example our Ngo Dac Na Kung Fu System.
We have an open door policy if you can get to us we will train you. But for many people around the world that isn’t practical. Which is why we host Seminars yearly so that you can come and train with us to understand things like Channeling energy, Bending and blending energy. Understanding things like consistency of pressure etc…
So if you are on the fence about learning online don’t be. Hundreds of thousands of people are learning things online everyday.
My truth is this: If I wasn’t already a part of Enter Shaolin and I found it online, I would certainly join. I have actually joined several online martial art sites. Simply because I love learning and I want to further my own personal understanding.
So If not us find an online martial art school you do like and join it… You can never go wrong in your journey for self growth and improvement.
