About Fully Alive

We are ordinary people who have been lucky enough to find and practice a number of extraordinary arts, including the arts taught by Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit. They have changed us and the way we live our lives and we believe it is important to pass these things on so others can benefit.  

At Fully Alive, we teach Shaolin Cosmos Chi Kung as passed on to us by Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit. These arts were taught by Bodhidharma to the Shaolin monks around 1500 years ago. We are dedicated to passing these arts on in order to give people the skills to increase their health and happiness.

We talk a lot about chi (or energy) flow. Most of you have experienced it in everyday life. Those moments when no worries, no thoughts or physical problems intrude and whatever you are doing just happens easily. Modern medical science also recognizes that many things can get in the way of a healthy body and mind too.


Chi Kung works directly on the energy in each of us that powers the natural systems that keep us healthy – clearing things that cause a problem. It contains the skills that makes clearing and flowing a reliable, repeatable process. This isn’t an intellectual idea but a practical reality for us.


Collectively, we pass on these traditional skills and use our experience to run clinics, regular classes, courses & workshops teaching Chi Kung, Tai Chi Chuan & Shaolin Kung Fu, as well as hosting other masters and the annual UK Summer Camp.



The Chi Kung (QiGong) classes we teach pass on the essential skills and develop a framework for learning high level arts.
The courses provide a developmental path as follows:

Generating Energy Flow for Health and Happiness

Developing Skills for Conscious Flow

Building Internal Force

Refining Energy for Peace and Happiness

Focussing Energy for Stability and Growth

Expanding Energy from Stability for Growth

Directing Energy with Vitality and Warmth

Accumulating Energy for Longevity and Usefulness

These form the platform for learning powerful and sophisticated arts including Bone Marrow Cleansing, Sinew Metamorphosis, Cosmic Shower and Merging with the Cosmos.

The Tai Chi Chuan (Taijiquan) classes we teach allow people to use their energy skills to “power” flowing action - physical, emotional and intellectual. These classes are based on the Treatise of Zhang San Feng and are progressive in nature.



Level 1 Shaolin Cosmos Chi Kung Classes

From 10th January 2018

Practicing Shaolin Cosmos Chi Kung is a direct, simple and effective way of clearing illnesseshaving more energy and generally feeling happier and healthier. And the greater the “Kung” or skills, the more benefits you get. That’s why we run our courses – to help you learn and deepen these skills and therefore get more benefits.

The benefit of Shaolin Cosmos Chi Kung is that by regularly doing a 15 minute practice, illness can be cleared at many levels - physical, emotional and mental. It is wonderful at addressing many chronic difficulties like depression, pain, obsessive thoughts, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, anxiety and stress. As well as helping people overcome chronic illness it also helps people to increase their energy, have a clearer mind and generally live happier and healthier lives.

Here is a video of Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit explaining how it works and what people can achieve.


Shaolin Cosmos Chi Kung Classes, 7-8pm Wednesday

From the 10th January we will be offering three Chi Kung classes:

Levels 1: Generating Energy Flow for Health and Happiness
At the course you will:
Learn or deepen the fundamental skills of clearing illness, increasing energy and happily engaging in life
Get a direct experience of it working for you and the confidence to practice at home
Understand how Chi Kung skills can be used to address specific issues in your everyday life


Level 2: Developing Skills for Conscious Flow

This course can be taken by anyone who has practised with us or any instructor from Shaolin Wahnam. Being able to consciously control the level of Chi Flow and Movement is a useful skill and crucial for more advanced skills. People who have taken this course understand the principles behind how to achieve and use these skills. They also get a direct experience of using them in their practice. People have said they have found this step useful in their later training.

Wong Kiew Kit Spiritual Cultivation

Special Level - Enhancing Energy Fields for Stability and Connection: Five Dan Tien Training.

This course is part of the series of special courses we are running with the overall title of Cultivating Spirit, Training Energy. It is possible to take these courses individually, although we designed them to build and develop skills progressively, and prepare people to get the most out of the course in Penang with Sifu in December 2018. This course will be: Preparing the body, energy, mind to achieve the following:

Feeling grounded, centred and present regardless of the circumstances

Feeling peaceful and emotionally stable, undisturbed by transient emotions

Feeling more solid and stable within yourself, with more energy and confidence available

Being able to flow healthily, freely and happily in the world - without getting unnecessarily entangled with people or events

If you practice a martial art or you are a therapist: Enhancing the power available for your art

These Chi Kung classes are open to anyone who has done a Level 1 course with us or any course with Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit or a Shaolin Wahnam instructor.

The previous course taught was: Entering the Way of Freedom and Happiness

At this course students prepared their body, energy, mind to achieve the following:

An experience of unrestricted flow without a feeling of being out of control - an not needing to do that by falling back on or into old or new ideas/patterns (freedom from self?)
Feeling tremendously free and happy - for no particular reason - and being O.K with that
To Experience a sense of extreme stillness and tremendous flow - without worrying about whether they are mutually exclusive 🙂

We also teach Tai Chi Chuan (Wudang Kung Fu) as passed down by the patriarch of all internal arts, Zhang San Feng. He was the first person to integrate Chi Kung, physical arts (like Kung Fu) and meditation into one practice. At the course, you will:
Learn the fundamental principles and skills of Tai Chi Chuan
Get all of the benefits of Chi Kung as well as the increased performance and mind/spirit benefits
Get a direct experience of it working for you and the confidence to practice at home 
Understand how the skills of Tai Chi Chuan can be used to address specific issues in your everyday life

Here is a video that explains this in more detail.

The Shaolin Arts have been taught and passed down over the last 1500 years. Tai Chi Chuan, which developed out of those arts, has been helping people for over 500 years. The three of us at Fully Alive are lucky to be part of that lineage and want to pass on the benefits we continue to get from this practise. Please pass on this page to anyone you think might benefit.
