ABOUT US

San Rafael Martial Arts, founded in 2011 by Sifu Terrance Thornton, brings over 30 years of Martial Arts experience to the community.  Sifu Thornton has had the privilege of teaching many people over the years who have become great martial artists, tournament champions and Grand Champions.  My most favorable accomplishments are watching students achieve their martial arts goals and beyond.  Watching kids do better in school; watching teens gain confidence and belief in themselves; watching adults experience and achieve new fitness and self-defense goals and the seniors get stronger and gain balance beyond their expectations.

We are committed to our student’s martial arts success and goals. This commitment to excellence is not demanded, but shown and lived by all instructors.

San Rafael Martial Arts teaches Choy Li Fut Kung Fu and Yang style Tai Chi.  I started my training in these arts at Doc-Fai Wong Martial Arts Center, founded by Grandmaster Doc-Fai Wong in 1968.  I have had the privilege of learning from Tai Sifu Jason Wong, the Chief Instructor of Doc-Fai Wong Martial Arts Center.

 

OUR MISSION

Our goal is to make sure our students reach their goals.  We are Committed in making sure all fitness, self-defense, flexibility and personal goals are recognized and achieved.  We are here to provide a clean, safe and comfortable atmosphere to make learning enjoyable and possible.
