Sifu Roberson Douge is the most advanced and senior student of late Grandmaster Julian Keith Duran and the 5th generation of the Fu-Jow Pai heritage.
Born in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti where he began his martial arts training at the age of 10 years old and now has over 30 years of experience. He practiced a variety of martial arts styles such as Japanese Shotokan and Karate, Taekwondo ITF, as well as Judo. A few months after he moved to the United States in 1998, He met Sifu Julian K. Duran who became his Kung Fu Master and began his Fu-Jow Pai training venture at the age of 18 years old. From that time Sifu Roberson concentrated all his efforts in learning the Fu-Jow Pai system (Tiger Claw System).
Under the direction of Grandmaster Duran, he rapidly begun to excel in his training and participated in various Chinese Martial Arts Championships from 1999 to 2001 where he was awarded first place in many form demonstrations and the championship title in full contact combats. In addition, Sifu Roberson had the privilege to train in many occasions under his Grand-Master Wai Hong, who is the inheritor of the Fu-Jow Pai, and participated in several seminars under Grand-Master Wai Hong.
In 2001, Sifu Roberson became an instructor at his Master’s school, The Kung Fu Conservatory, in Boca Raton Florida. Later in June 2006, Grandmaster J. Duran gave his blessing to Roberson where he officially made him a Sifu/Master, and granted him authorization to teach the Fu-Jow Pai system on his own; however Roberson chose to remain under his master’s wings and continued his training with him.
Few years later, Sifu Roberson began to offer private lessons for a few months until he and his wife and three children moved to Palm Bay Florida in October 2011 where he opened his school and is now making Fu-Jow Pai available to all who want to learn, adults and children alike.
With the unfortunate passing of Grandmaster Julian Keith Duran in June 11, 2022; Sifu Roberson Douge is now the only official master teaching Fu-Jow Pai in Florida.
In addition to Sifu Roberson’s martial arts achievement, he also holds a Doctorate degree in Theology and a major in Chaplaincy. He is the Senior Pastor of Apostolic Church Of Christ, Inc and founder of Rhema Apostolic University. He is the author of the book titled “The Believer’s Faith Against Demonic Warfare” and travels in different countries and through out the United States to speak and teach in conferences and summits.
This is how Sifu Roberson explains his concept of kung fu: “Kung fu is self-expression. It affects my life by increasing my humility, self-confidence and wisdom. Kung fu totally transformed my personality and plays a huge part in what I’ve become today: a better person. I remain with the belief that there’s more to come in my life with kung fu involved; for the art itself is grand and profound. Through my dedication and devotion for kung fu, the best of me is to be expected”.
