STATEMENT

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We here at the Jun Fan Gung Fu Institute of Seattle strive for excellence in the areas of honesty, integrity, openness and friendship, just as Sigung Taky has always taught us. 


As you may have heard, two of our senior instructors have recently departed from the Jun Fan Gung Fu family, in an effort to start their own operation.

To be very clear, this endeavor is in no way related to or sanctioned by me, my father or the Jun Fan Gung Fu Institute of Seattle.

As you can imagine, if Sigung Taky were aware of all of the details, he would be disheartened by this unsanctioned move.

Families evolve and members will sometimes go their separate ways.  Though these things may happen, it doesn't mean that these situations aren't often painful and confusing.

It is the hope, that when such relationships dissolve, that the circumstance can be handled with professionalism, courtesy, integrity and respect. Unfortunately, that is not always the case, and we feel it was not the case in this particular instance. 

Rest assured, our Jun Fan Gung Fu Institute of Seattle classes, seminars and special events will continue as planned.  We, along with all of our trusted friends and affiliates around the world, will continue to honor the life and legacy of Sijo Bruce and Sigung Taky, with the respect, care and love that they deserve, as we move forward toward the future. 

We truly appreciate the outpouring of love that we have received. Your continued support is greatly appreciated. 

Feel free to contact me personally if you have any questions whatsoever or if you would like additional information.

Respectfully,

Sifu Andy Kimura
