New Levels of Confidence

by Shun Shifu Kimball Feb 7, 2016 0 Blog, Child safety, Community, Event, Modesto , ,

The kids confidence workshop was a blast!!!! Everyone who participated had amazing growth in their confidence.

Thank you to everyone who helped teach, set up refreshments, and wake up early on a Saturday (parents, you’re all fantastic for being good sports).

I’d like to congratulate everyone who became full time members at our martial arts school today. I’m really excited to see all of you earn your white belts in class next week.

P.S. I really appreciate everyone’s willingness to listen to my bully story…. Yes, I wasn’t born a black belt (contrary to popular belief). Today I witnessed more confidence than I ever had when I was young. Mrs. Kimball and I can’t wait to see all the great things you’ll do with the new levels of self-esteem.

Kid’s Confidence Workshop

by Shun Shifu Kimball Jan 29, 2016 0 Blog, Child safety, Event , , ,


I’ve been teaching children full time for years now and I’ve had the honor of meeting people from all walks of life. During my internship through now I’ve seen thousands of families who have all found great benefits in martial arts.

During this time and the thousands of families I’ve met…..Guess how many actually needed their child to learn how to fight? Two, and one of those two just happened to be me. ( My bully story will have to wait for a different blog post.) I know what you must be thinking, two…..Now way!

The main reason behind the phone calls, messages, and questions I receive boil down to one thing, SELF-ESTEEM. Low self-esteem is the root of most difficulties that children face. This epidemic has led me down the path of teaching character development and specializing in children’s martial arts.

I’d like to extend an invitation to our local community for a FREE kid’s confidence workshop, Saturday Feb. 6th. Join us for a martial arts class that’s centered on building confidence.

  • Ages 4-7 10:00 am
  • Ages 8- 13 11:30 am

This is an open event and we welcome everyone to join! Free martial arts patches will be given to the first 40 children who attend this workshop.

Congratulations on advanced testing

by Shun Shifu Kimball Jan 25, 2016 2 Blog, Event ,

We would like to say CONGRATULATIONS to everyone who tested and received new rank over the weekend.

This weekend we traveled to Yuma AZ, to train and spend time building the personal connections in our company. This weekend was a huge success in every way possible….. In my opinion the new ranks were just icing on the cake.

Shun Shifu Moore, Shun Shifu Doyl, Shun Shifu Byrd, and myself were in the crane group. Shi gung Fatusi, Booey, Vargas, and Potts were in the mantis group. Both groups went through brutal training and evaluations that lasted two full days. Both days were packed full of training that pushed us to the limit in physical, mental, and emotional levels.

This training brought us together as a team….Strong and united through the leadership of Jung Moon ( Al Moore ). The personal connections made during this weekend is why this company is the most amazing martial arts community in the industry.

The new ranks include:

  1. Shi Gung Booey 6th degree
  2. Shi Gung Potts 6th degree
  3. Shi Gung Fatusi 5th degree
  4. Shun Shifu Byrd 4th degree
  5. Shun Shifu Doyl 4th degree
  6. Shun Shifu Kimball 4th degree
  7. Shun Shifu Moore 1st degree

While these new ranks are amazing….. I believe the most amazing part of this experience is the bond that was created through the intense training. A bond that will carry this martial arts community through any obstacle the future may bring.
