Sifu Roberson Douge was 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 styles which include Japanese Shotokan and Karate. A few months after he moved to the United States, in November 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 (Tiger Style) system.
Under the direction of Master Duran, he rapidly begun to excel in his training and participated in many Chinese Martial Arts Championships from the years 1999 to 2001 where he was awarded first place in many form demonstrations and the championship title in full contact combats. In addition, he had the privilege to train in many occasions under his Grand-Master, Wai Hong, in different seminars.
In 2001, Sifu Roberson became an instructor at Master Julian Duran’s school, The Kung Fu Conservatory, in Boca Raton Florida. In June 2011, Master J. Duran gave his blessing to Roberson and officially granted him his authorization to teach the Fu-Jow Pai system on his own.
Sifu Roberson began to offer private sessions as well as closed door lessons for a few months until he and his wife and three children moved to Palm Bay Florida where he opened his school and is now making Fu-Jow Pai available to all who want to learn, adults and children alike.
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 many countries and through out the United States to speak and teach in conferences and summits.
This is how Apostle Douge 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”.
