Many years ago, Joe and Gina Peel started teaching Martial Arts from their garage. The vision that they had begun a lifelong dream to train up Warriors for Christ, using the principles of the Bible as the foundation behind the mental discipline of martial arts. Since then, God has blessed them with several different venues and successes training children and adults alike.

The vision in the near future for White Lion Kajukenbo/FSDA, is to expect more growth and expansion in our community and outlying areas around the Treasure Valley. We are committed to the betterment and support of our community. It is our goal to help reinforce strong values for families and young people in today’s times, teaching them how to be prepared for life’s challenges as they present themselves, so that we can live a victorious lifestyle with freedom from fear.

Our Philosophy

White Lion Kajukenbo/FSDA stands for something much bigger than its name sounds.

  • Free — We are Free through the Blood of Jesus Christ.
  • Style — We are styling through our Lord and God.
  • Defensive — We teach how to defend physically & spiritually.
  • Arts — We teach the Art of Life Skills.

Our martial arts techniques are used and based on Kung Fu taught more than 4,000 years ago. It includes many facets of the martial arts that we are familiar with today which have been practiced for thousands of years. They have used techniques such as Chi Sao (sticky hands), Qin-na techniques (grappling arts of Kung Fu), Fukien Ground Boxing (Kung Fu ground fighting techniques), as well and including along the way, our wrestling techniques. Also offered is Muay Thai, Brazilian Jujitsu/UFC Style Jujitsu, and we also teach art of weaponry, as the warriors of old have always done themselves. We teach to both beginner as well as the advanced practitioner wishing to augment their skills.
