-Q: Is there any type of testing?

A: Normally there are not in the regular online videos. BranaOnline is to provide information only. BUT if you would like to progress and try and earn an Instructorship in our system, testing will then be required.


Q: How old does someone have to be to go through the material?

A: Although you can start with a child as early as 4 or 5 years old, in order for someone to fully understand and complete the curriculum successfully they will need to be a bit older. In order to take any Level qualification tests, one must be at least 10 years of age.


Q: Can my child/wife/friend be my training/testing partner?

A: Yes! Anyone can do the BranaOnline material and, therefore, anyone can be your training partner. Keep in mind however that since most of the techniques were designed to work on larger opponents, when you are practicing it does help to have someone your size or larger to train with.


Q: Once I purchase the online membership, how long will it be in my library for?

A: Once purchased, the lessons will be available in your library for unlimited viewing, as long as you are a member. We have 3 different options for membership.


Q: If I want to train with family members, do we both have to purchase the lessons multiple times, or can we share them?

A: When training with a family member (Living in the same residence), you do not need to purchase the instructional material more than once. The only restriction is that multiple users cannot log in to a single account at the same time. If we notice excessive attempts at simultaneous logins on a single account or notice logins from to many computers, we will suspect that the password is being shared, and the account will be terminated. We understand that, in many cases, BranaOnline students will get together in groups to practice, in this case everyone in the group will have to be a member.


Q: How often should I train?

A: We recommend training as often as you can. But one of the greatest advantages of being a member of BranaOnline is that you can train ANYTIME & ANYWHERE. Just watch one of the videos and away you go.


Q: How much does the membership cost?

A: We have 3 different membership options available.


Q: Do you offer any discounts?

A: We do have discounts for those that sign up for the yearly membership and Lifetime memberships.


Q: I’ve never practiced martial arts, but I want to learn. How do I get started?

A: The first thing to do is become familiar with BranaOnline by watching the first few videos. After that, you will need to find a training partner. Either a family member or someone in your community. Once you’ve found a person, or group of people, to train with, make sure that you have access to BranaOnline.com and start training! Remember, if you have any questions along the way, about anything, post them in the forum and we will answer them as soon as we can.
