Sifu Kurtis Fujita began his study of Chinese Martial Arts over two decades ago in the famed San Francisco, Chinatown school of his teacher, Grand Master Y.C. Wong. It was there that he learned the Hung Gar System of Kung Fu as well as elements of Tai Chi, Pek Kwar, and I-Chuan Standing Meditation. On numerous occasions he traveled with Grand Master Wong to Hong Kong and Mainland China to further his studies. Eventually, he was approved to teach Kung Fu by Grand Master Wong himself.
Upon moving to Southern California, Sifu Fujita was introduced to Grand Master Raymond K. Wong of Rosemead by Grand Master Y.C. Wong. It was during this time that he gained exposure to the styles of My Jong Law Horn, Tai Chi Praying Mantis, and the rare Do Gar system under the tutelage of Grand Master Raymond K. Wong.
Inspired by the teachings of his masters, he founded Tiger Crane Kung Fu, Ventura County, California’s premiere location for Traditional Chinese Martial Arts Instruction. It is at this school that students gain instruction in the arts of Kung Fu, Tai Chi, and Lion Dance.
Sifu Fujita has also served as a Guest Instructor at The Ventura County Police and Sheriff’s Reserve Officer Academy on several occasions, teaching the Police Cadets hand to hand combat techniques. Additionally, he has worked on Animated Series as a Fight Choreographer as well as a Martial Arts Consultant for Sony Playstation video games in Tokyo, Japan.
Sifu Kurtis Fujita is pleased to serve as Los Angeles Chairman of The United States Traditional Kung Fu Wushu Federation and continues to look forward to the future of Kung Fu’s progress while honoring the traditions of its past.
