SIFU BRETT DANIEL SHEHADEY
Sifu Dan (Brett Daniel Shehadey) has studied Martial arts for over 20 years. He is the chief instructor at Discover Kung Fu. His method of teaching is one-to-one, which is how he was originally trained: in the backyard of Ng Sifu's house all those dry hot Fresno summers and wet winters.
Sifu takes great care to individualize instruction according to the needs of his students, and he has years of experience in communicating his deep insight in martial arts to his students. He offers private and semi-private adult-only lessons in Kung Fu and Tai Chi at Discover Kung Fu.
Paul Fauteux has studied several different styles of martial arts. After earning a 1st degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do in 2003 and briefly studying Goju Ryu Karate as a college student, he began studying Hung Gar Kung Fu under Sifu Dan in 2007.
After fourteen years of studying Hung Gar Kung Fu, he is offering group lessons to teens and adults at the Discover Kung Fu facility in Fairfax as well as outdoors in the Centerville and Chantilly area.
A father to two young girls, he is also a high school teacher for FCPS.
