“Sifu Terrance has a great way with kids (and parents!). My son has been attending for a year and I've watched him grow in confidence and character since he started taking kung fu."

ABOUT US

San Rafael Martial Arts, founded in 2011 by Sifu Terrance Thornton, is bringing over 35 years of Martial Arts experience to the community.  Sifu Thornton has had the privilege of teaching many people over the years whom have become great martial artists, tournament champions and Grand Champions.  My proudest accomplishments are watching students achieve their martial arts goals and beyond.  Watching kids do better academically in school; watching teens gain confidence and belief in themselves; watching adults experience and achieve new fitness and self-defense goals and seniors get stronger and gain better balance beyond their personal 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 in 1968 by Grandmaster Doc-Fai Wong.  I have had the privilege of learning from Tai Sifu Jason Wong, the Chief Instructor of Doc-Fai Wong Martial Arts Center.

 

OUR MISSION

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.
