It all started when...

Flying Tortoise Kung Fu was founded by husband and wife team: Kate and Joey Haber.  After 9 years training BaGuaZhang in Los Angeles they made their first trip to China in April 2013.

In 2012 they moved the classes from the local park to the basement of their house.  In 2014 the school moved to its permanent home at 4400 NE Glisan. Classes continue to expand to meet the needs of our student base.

Together Kate and Joey have a spicy daughter (born 2014) and a patient son (born 2018). They also manage Flying Tortoise Food Carts.

  It is the mission of Flying Tortoise Kung Fu to cultivate a safe and supportive environment for learning and gleaning all the benefits of authentic martial arts.
