Our Mission

Carlton DoupKungFu4Kids, KungFuNorthwest, MarysvilleMartialArts

We believe it is our PURPOSE to INSPIRE and EMPOWER each of our students to DO and BE their PERSONAL BEST every day.

There are several ways we work to deliver on this promise…

We start by very carefully selecting each of our team members. This ensures that our team is made up only of unique individuals who are sincere, passionate, and dedicated to improving the lives of others. Before being selected to join our team they must demonstrate through their actions and involvements that they truly possess a desire to serve others in a honest and wholesome way.

Next, we recognize the importance of, and work tirelessly to maintain a safe, CLEAN, and up-to-date space that has been designed with optimal learning in mind. Even more important to us is providing a motivational, supportive, and judgement free environment, founded in respect, that celebrates individuality, and continually reminds students that it is OK to fail, and that they should never be afraid to fail, as a part of learning.

Finally, we use the right tools for the job!

For thousands of years kung fu has been proven to instill a sense of determination, perseverance, indomitable spirit, and an appreciation for hard work. In its original translation, kung fu refers to any discipline or skill achieved through hard work and practice, such as music, cooking, or martial arts. In working towards mastery, students gain confidence as they overcome challenges, and learn that each failure is one step closer to success.

Aside from the many lessons that are inherently learned through martial arts training, we have also teamed up with Dr. Robyn Silverman, one of the country’s foremost experts on childhood character development, to bring the Powerful Words Character Development System to all of our students and their families. We do this because we believe that these important life lessons MUST be taught on purpose, using a PROVEN system of character education.

We love what we do, and take our commitment to you very seriously. You have our word that we will always work our hardest, and do our best to fulfill our mission to continually inspire, and empower each and every one of our students.
