About Your Instructor

My name is Julian Dale and I started learning Chinese Martial Arts at age 17 in the UK. 

I travelled to Hong Kong at the age of 20 to further my studies of Kung Fu. 

During my time in China I've had the good fortune to meet many great teachers of Chinese Martial Arts.

I specialise in the Northern Chinese Eagle Claw Kung Fu System known as Ying Zhao Fan Tzi Mun, which I have studied since 1994.

My studies started within the Hong Kong branch of Eagle Claw before I travelled into China to research the roots of the system at it's birthplace in Hebei province North China. 

This is where I now continue to learn, direct from the source. I am the first and only westerner to be accepted as a family 6th generation lineage disciple within the founding village of Eagle Claw called Gu ZhuangTo in Xiongxian Hebei China and follow my teacher Master Chen Jun Xin

I am lifetime member of of the Hong Kong Chinese Martial Arts Association, certified International Traditional Chinese Martial Arts Association Hangzhou China, and in the family record books for Eagle Claw in the founding village

Over the years I have featured on various TV programs including Chanel 5 Jackie Chan documentary, BBC1, BBC2 Rise of Martial Arts in England, Lead Presenter on Fists of The Dragons Documentary, 

I have also published books on Eagle Claw, Instructional DVD on Qi Gong, 

My goal is to share this ancient and traditional martial arts with many new practioners and students  using the power of modern technology.




Who is the course for?

The course is aimed at people who are new to Kung Fu (but will also benefit existing practitioners of martial arts).

The 45 lessons inside cover the key details and explanations for understanding the foundation of the Eagle Claw style. 

I've made sure each lesson is broken down into easily understood elements. Working through the course and following the training will help the student appreciate this unique martial art.

This is first time Eagle Claw Kung Fu has been taught online and I'm excited to see how it will help people around the world learn authentic Chinese martial arts

I am very happy to help anyone who wishes to pursue a sincere journey learning our family Eagle Claw Kung Fu system
