Ray is great at communicating the basics in a way that is easy to remember. Sometimes trying to learn basic martial arts/self-defense can be intimidating but Ray created a very comfortable environment.

Twin Tigers Kung Fu has produced 32 world champions and 47 divisional champions out of our studio. Our instructors consist of 4 world champion competitors. Dr. Eric Gardere (19 time World Champion fighter, inducted into 6 martial art halls of fame) SiFu Tiffany Gardere (women's light weight world champion) SiFu Eric Day (weapons specialist and world champion) and SiFu Timmothy Gardere (weapons specialist and 6 time world champion in forms & weapons). We train our students to be martial artist, not bullies. We teach them Honor, Respect & responsibility. We also train in fitness & body conditioning.


We offer martial arts training in the art of Shou' Shu' Kung Fu. Shou' Shu' is a purely self-defense system rather than a sport. It's an ancient martial art that is true to its origins.


Started Mixed Martial Art at the age of 7yrs old and through hard work and dedication I received my black belt at the age of 16. How far you push yourself is based on the passion you have to Succeed. There is no such word as "I CAN'T". I am humble and patient when working with kids because you have to make learning Fun. I have a commitment to excellence and Self Discipline. I am the state championship winner on intermediate-level sparring on 1997 and 1998.
