I have been a student at the Stark Street Academy of Kung Fu for the past 14 years and I am now training to be a student teacher. Sifu Cropper has a deep understanding and appreciation for the art that he teaches and passes onto his students. Sifu Cropper is a strict but compassionate teacher that fosters the talents of each individual student so that they may grow and better themselves in a safe environment. Without a doubt, I would recommend this school to anyone who wants to have a rich and fulfilling martial arts experience in an environment where they are accepted as part of a large martial arts family. The new name of the business is the Rick Cropper Martial Arts Center located at 8040 SE Stark Street Suite B Portland Oregon.
I teach Beijing Temple of Heaven Curriculum Kung Fu. My students and teachers have the opportunity to travel to China after they receive high enough rank here in Portland. I travel to China for 2 months per year to study kung fu for 8 hours per day. Arts taught are Zen Tai Chi, Pao Chui (Cannon Fist), Ba Gua Zhang and Capoeira. I train 3+ hours a day in my local park because I love what I do. The group of masters I have been able to cultivate relationships with in China has become my family. I also have a passion for creating a safe non-competitive environment in my classes and instruction.

We offer kung fu classes for both children and adults. The term kung fu, in the popular idiom, means "Chinese martial arts:; however, in China the phrase can also be used to describe any skilled activity that requires long, hard work to master. Thus, it could be said that one has a "good kung fu" at baking, painting or archery (for example). Here at the academy, we respond well to both the traditional and the popular meanings of the word "kung fu". The martial roots of what we do are in good part Chinese in origin. We also acknowledge that martial arts is something that requires patience and hard work over time, and we are dedicated to providing all students with quality instruction and support in their training with this scope and focus in mind. Throughout their studies, students are exposed to striking, grappling, throwing, weapons, sparring, teaching and forms. We believe that the generalist, a well-rounded student, with a broad range of experience has a better chance at survival (in facing the unexpected) than the specialist.
