Join our Global Kung Fu Family
Develop your Kung Fu mastery and join a growing community of Kung Fu enthusiasts.
Nam Yang Pugilistic Association was begun in 1954 by renowned Master Ang Lian Huat who had trained with some of China’s best teachers. We are not an online school, we are a Kung Fu family, a group of people who love Kung Fu and thrive by living the Kung Fu lifestyle. We love Kung Fu History, Tradition, Culture, Philosophy and Ethos. Ours is thinking person’s Kung Fu – really quite unsuitable for idiots! It ties together the physical, the mental, the emotional and the spiritual. We have a following which spans the globe and have now decided to unite and grow our family online. If you want to train real, traditional Kung Fu with history, tradition and a genuine, proven track record, this might be exactly what you have been looking for!
What have we got for you?
Detailed, progressive courses in:
- Tiger – Crane Combination Kung Fu.
- Sun Frost White Crane Internal Kung Fu.
- Tong Ling Chi Kung for health and longevity.
- Bodhidharma’s Vein Tendon Chi Kung for strength, power and healthy joints.

And, of course,

Structured training programs to progress as either:
Shaolin Warrior – the full fighting art of Kung Fu, internal and external, supported by chi kung.
Internal Kung Fu and Chi Kung – a softer approach for those mainly interested in health and personal development.

The online membership with Nam Yang is a great tool to start or continue training virtually wherever you are. I’m from America and as of right now, Nam Yang and the Tiger Crane style of Kung Fu does not exist where I live. Having an online membership will greatly enhance the training while back home. The Online membership allows you the ability to train your fighting techniques, exercise and stretch all while being guided by videos and detailed documents on kung fu. One thing I really like about the site is the overall structure. its easy to get from point A to point B for an entire lesson. It’s not at all like going on youtube and learning a few moves. every lesson is detailed step by step until completion in which an actual instructor will evaluate you!
One of the great advantages of online training is that it gives you direct access to the ‘top’ teachers. Clearly not everyone can train physically with the famous teachers – of whom there are fewer than you might think. But with online training you get straight to them!
