KUNG FU CHIANG MAI comes from a Tibetan, Mongolian and Chinese lineage dating back 600 years. The school’s objective is to teach the arts of self-defense and healing to those who wish to acquire and maintain physical and spiritual well-being.

Kerliang Healing Arts Centre offers courses in Kung Fu, Qi Gong and Tai Chi Chuan, upto advanced and teacher / mastery certificate level. The centre was established by Master Joe in 1985 and is now family run by Master Jade and Teacher Julie and Teacher Aum.




I came to Chiang Mai about a year ago and started to study Kung Fu at Kung Fu Chiang Mai with Master Jade. I was so impressed by his approach that I decided to stay in Chiang Mai for a couple of years and study with him and Master Kai. For Jade, Kung Fu is much more than a self-defense or fighting technique. He sees Kung Fu everywhere and always makes comparisons between Kung Fu and real life. After studying with him for over a year, I am still astonished at his knowledge and understanding. Jade often tells me “The basics are the more important. Learn them well and then you can learn all forms easily and truly master them. Jade’s teachings are personalised, his approach is different with each person and he is equally good at teaching beginners, as he is to teach high-style. For me, studying with him has been a life-changing experience.

Aum is an excellent teacher. I have practiced tai chi for three years and it is wonderful to resume practice with someone whose Tibetan-Chinese-Thai lineage goes back for generations. I recommend Aum and her sister without reservation.

I started studying Tai Chi Fan at Kung Fu Chiang Mai because the form looks so cool. After practicing for a short period of time, I noticed that I was beginning to feel Chi. I decided to continue my studies with other forms of Tai Chi. My experiences with feeling energy or Chi increased as I took more classes and continued to practice. Then, I started taking Qi Gong classes and my experience with Chi deepened. Before coming to Kung Fu Chiang Mai, I studied and practiced Tai Chi with three other instructors and also practiced aikido and judo for years. Never before had I experienced the existence and movement of Chi as strongly and consistently as I have after studying with Master Kai. It has helped me improve my technique in energy medicine, meditation, massage and aikido. It has improved, directly and indirectly, my health in general, my flexibility, my strength and mind.
