I love this place. My son is constantly motivated to learn and try new things. Many of the lessons he has learned about honesty, taking initiative, respecting the people around him, and trying his best have been applied to his daily life. The instructors are amazing. They know each child by name and focus on developing a relationship with them. My son is a perfectionist and can get easily frustrated with himself and start crying when he doesn’t do something right the first time. They are aware of this and will take the time to squat down to his level to encourage him and talk him through his frustrations. They lead by example.

My son has been going here for about 2 months and wow have we seen a drastic change in his attitude at home and school. We initially enrolled him because he was having social problems and he has done a complete 180. The instructors here are top notch and work one on one with each student. It is not only about Kung Fu but also about learning how to cope in todays society with respect, responsibility and leadership all while having fun. I am glad we found this school and Thank all of the instructors for helping to condition each child to be the best they can.

Kung Fu For Kids teach kids more than self defense, they also teach them respect, honor, how to take on responsibilities & how to deal with certain aspects of life. I recommend them.

My child is enrolled here and has been for years now. We never “shopped” around when we enrolled him. One session and we knew we were onto a good thing. The instructors and owner all relate to the kids on their level. I have seen them reach the kids in an engaging manor with positive outcomes. The staff is always polite and courteous, always willing to help and take time as needed, and able to challenge the kids. And seeing how Carlton addressed day care coverage during a recent short notice teacher walk out just reaffirmed what I always knew. This place rocks, and is not all about collecting the money but rather about providing a valuable service to the neighborhood, reaching children, and making our community a better place. I can’t spread the word enough. Give them a try…. what do you have to lose? Your kids will thank you!

My teenagers have been attending there for almost 8 years now and they have been treated with great respect. They are well disciplined and always had compliments from their teachers on how well behaved and respectful they are to the teachers and their peers. I know that a lot of the great qualities they now obtain were learned while attending Kung fu for kids. As a single parent enrolling my kids there was one of the best choices I have made.

My family and I love Kung Fu Northwest! Prior to my son attending he was less focused and had low self-esteem. Now he takes pride in his work and is excited and looks forward to the next class. A great big Thank You to Sifu and all the staff at Kung Fu Northwest!!

My daughter and I both love Kung fu for kids. It is an excellent place to learn healthy body image, respect for others, and self respect. I would highly recommend this school. The instructors are excellent and I am amazed how well the teach each individual student in the midst of a large group. Each child receives individual evaluation and correction as required. My daughter is 8 and she loves it she wants to go everyday.

I am a grandmother who has been taking a grandson to Kung Fu for Kids for several months now. The owner has always been pleasant, positive, and when he walks through classes he is encouraging to the children and knows many of them by name. The instructors are awesome! They take time with each child, even when class sizes are large, and they call children on behavior when it’s inappropriate. If a child misbehaves, they have them do squats, push ups, or sit out for a short time. Never is anyone humiliated. Children must learn the Home Rules as they progress through the belt levels. Home Rules include statements such as, I will always be truthful and I will always be respectful to my parents! teachers and elders. I have found the environment at Kung Fu for Kids to be a supportive, positive, learning environment with lots of fun thrown in!

My son has been a student with Kung Fu 4 Kids for three years. They have a great program! I believe it takes a village to raise a child and I’m very happy to have Kung Fu 4 Kids as part of my village! They don’t just teach martial arts… empathy, compassion and respect are just a few other things that come to mind. Thanks, Kung Fu 4 Kids!

I love the way that all of the children are treated.  If any child is lacking then they will help them along.  Their demeanor is so great toward the children and they know how to have fun.  I believe that all of the children have a blast and learn to defend themselves in a nurturing environment.

My children both attend here. My oldest started when he was 4, and now is 13. Myyoungest started at 6years old, and is now almost 11.  They both love going to this school, and now they are in the teenage class.  The instructors are wonder, knowledgeable , and work well with the kids.  Also, they have a great repore with the kids. Next, Sifu is great to talk to about situations with my boys. He always has time for my boys or me. So, i highly recommend this schooll based on my children’s and my experiences, and the fact the staff is caring and professional.

We have our son in the ESSENTIALS class. During his classes our daughter came with me to watch him and she also learned the HONOR,HUMILITY, RESPECT, I WILL BE MY BEST.  and some of the moves, Which she also has her barbies doing.
So we decided, even thou money is super tight ……its worth the sacrifice for this FRUGAL MOM.
We now have our daughter. enrolled in the NINJAGARTEN class. Which we have taken some of her lessons and tweaked em a bit to replay at home.
Both kids are always asking…Mom, can we play that game when we get home.

I RECOMMEND THIS PROGRAM TO MANY!!!  at least try it out and see if it works for your kids

I think kung fu 4 kids, is a great program it makes my son have more confidence and it’s teaching him respect , responsibility, and how to treat others.

I have never been so humbled by the kindness shown to me by the staff of Kung fu 4 Kids. They are truly there to help our children better themselves as well as show the parents a few things about themselves along the way. It is a wonderful place for children to grow into respectful, honest, and responsible people. It’s also a great place to keep our children active and healthy! It’s lots of fun with other kids! It’s not just your ordinary martial arts school it’s a lot more!

Our son started attending this school a little over two years ago. We tried multiple sports and outlets with him. He never really liked any of them. One day he asked if he could try Kung Fu. So we enrolled him in this school. He now has a passion for Kung Fu. Attending this school has been an amazing experience with our son. Sifu Doup is a very great instructor and an even better role model. He tells like it is and holds nothing back. Mr. Ralph is an excellent teacher as well. You can tell he has a passion for the kids and his practice. This school is a wonderful place for your child! Thank you Sifu.

Kung Fu for Kids seems to be a really great fit for our son.  What he learns goes beyond his time there.  At home we are all working on responsibility and self-respect, in addition to awareness for others.  He is gaining confidence in himself, and it is so far the one thing that is keeping his focus!  It is a bit of a financial stretch for us, but we see that he will benefit in ways that will be with him for a lifetime.  The instructors are all really great with the kids…patient with and focused on the kids during class.

Our 4 year-old son has been attending this class for a couple months now, and has definitely enjoyed it.  Mr. Ralph is an outstanding teacher, and is able to combine fun exercises with the discipline I would expect of a Martial Arts class.  Our son looks forward to the classes every week, and is benefiting from the challenges of new activities, as well as building his confidence.  We definitely recommend this class.

As a Retired Air Force MSgt I love the attention my daughter receives, the teaching is top notch, and wow, has she blossomed. Her memory skills have improved, the control she has over her body has drastically improved. She has also developed a wonderful respect for her elders and peers. The instruction is not just learning kicks and punches, its about becoming a complete child, who is learning how to become a wonderful young adult. The instructors work together as a cohesive team, achieving consistent, reliable, and decisive learning environment. My daughter also, attended the summer day camp, and she had a blast, and can’t wait till next summer. I am so thankful to find this school.

My son has been going to this school for six years now since he was five years old and we are very fortunate to have Kung Fu 4 Kids as part of his education growing up. Along with the top notch Martial Arts he is learning, he is learning important skills like honesty, discipline, leadership and all the skills he needs to prepare him for adulthood. We are proud of this school and recommend highly to all families.

We have been to another studio in the area, but this one is hands down much much better! I would highly recommend this studio to any one thinking about getting their children involved in martial arts!

I can’t say enough good things about Kung Fu 4 Kids. It’s not only about learning martial arts and self-defense, but about building character and confidence, too. The teachers are knowledgeable and attentive to even the quietest of students. Sifu Doup and his crew are also always accessible to parents to answer questions or offer suggestions to help their children. I have never seen the teachers anything other than patient, kind, cheerful, and caring even when needing to rein in a class when they get a little loud or unruly. A verbal reprimand is always followed with a smile and an expression of affection. This school is a huge asset to our community. Thanks for all you do!

My grandson has been going to Kung Fu since the 2nd grade and what they have done for him in teaching the fundamental lessons on how to be a better person and to have the self confidence in himself. I can not thank them enough for treatment and the respect they show him. Thank you for the safe place our kids can go to after school. Awesome staff members. Love Kung Fu for kids!!!!!

My 7 yo daughter has been attending Kung Fu 4 kids for nearly two years. In that time I have seen her progress far beyond my expectations. In this time she has learned the importance of physical and mental conditioning, social intetaction , hard work, support dedication, resposibility, leardership, sharing, personal achievment and fun. We have found friends and experienced a sense sense of family, I hadn’t expected at Kung Fu Northwest. The professionalism and ability of the instructors is extremley impressive. My niece and nephew have also learned many of the same lessons since joining and have held their birthday parties at KFNW which is also great value and loads of fun. I can’t say enough about Kung Fu 4 Kids and the staff.

My son started feeling more confident and became more limber after a few weeks at Kungfu 4 Kids. He has so much respect for Sifu Doup and the instructors. They put a stop to bullying immediately so there is the true meaning of zero tolerance. Such a good job, that I wish they would help our schools.  The values they teach, the respect they pass along, and the pleasant experience our children enjoy while they are learning all make me highly recommend Kung fu 4 Kids.

My 6 year old son started Kung Fu a few weeks ago. He loves it here. The teachers are attentive, friendly and command respect.  Improving listening, discipline and respectful behavior. So far I am very impressed with rage of programs offered, how instructors know each kids name and how they help each child. I highly recommend for an after school activity a few nights a week.

We searched high and low for a school that both respected and loved kids but taught the discipline they need to succeed in life. We have been absolutely impressed at every turn with the instructors, staff, and Sifu Doup. One of my children struggles with some social issues and has had great difficulty with focus in school and in life in general. He is treated with the same respect that every other child at Kung Fu for Kids is treated with and it has resulted in a new confidence and conscientious attitude in him that we have never seen before. Kung Fu 4 kids was literally an answer to prayer for me. AND not only do they teach these life skills, their martial arts training is no joke. I didn’t want to take my child somewhere where the instructors got their black belts in a year or online. These guys are legit and have been in the community making a positive effect for years. I cant recommend them highly enough. Do your child a favor and check them out. You won’t be sorry you did.

Kung Fu For Kids has helped all of my kids. They are more aware of the disciplines of honor, integrity, kindness, etc. These qualities are not innate and must be not just learned, but reinforced. Kung Fu For Kids does this. They also teach valuable skills, such as escaping techniques, and dealing with bullies. Lastly, seeing my kids excel at the art of Kung Fu is a wonderful thing. They gain confidence, and then joy at knowing they are good at something.

Couldn’t be happier with our experience. On one hand it demands structure, compliance and effort on the part of the student and family. On the other hand it is fun, supportive and compassionate. I have seen both physical and mental growth on the part of my grandson. Kudos!
