Cherry De Windt
Founder & CEO

I’m the person in charge of Fight Foundation. I mainly teach the kids classes with my crew. I also teach private lessons to kids and adults. But don’t ask me to teach an adult class because the adults will most likely get injured. It’s usually not my fault. Kids just bounce back better.

I try to make class as fun as possible, but I also shake my head when I sound like a broken record. Some people love me, some people don’t. And that’s okay! There are plenty of martial arts schools in our town you can pick from. We are all different!

My teaching style is strict, traditional, and sometimes all over the place. I try to stay in shape because I don’t want to be the fat martial arts instructor that can’t move but makes their students do push ups. I try to practice what I preach. I may just hurt a little longer.

I get asked all the time if I compete. The answer is no. The reason being is because if I get injured, who’s going to run the business. I also have two little kids that need my attention.

I’ve trained hundreds of kids and adults in our area and have succeeded in getting their black belts. I have an MBA, but the main degree I’ve applied in my “career” is my second degree black belt.

Id love for your kid(s) to come try a class with us!

Sifu Caitlyn’s specialty is disciplining children when they aren’t listening, competing, and much more. Sifu Caitlyn is also the oldest of her siblings and doesn’t mind telling people what to do.

Shayne

Shayne is a first degree black belt and has been doing martial arts with us when she was about 11 years old. Shayne was fortunate enough to do private lessons while earning her belt because she played club volleyball at the same time. Since she did do well in privates, she was able to earn her black belt very quickly. Shayne has been working with us since she was about 13 years old as an assistant instructor to fulfill community service hours. She took a break to focus on volleyball and she has been teaching with
me since 2019. Shayne is now in college and now her and Sifu Caitlyn help with the administration part of the studio. She is excellent teaching at all levels. Her specialties are complex kicks and so much more.

Aaron

Aaron and Andrew started mixed martial arts when they were about 6 years old. They are currently taking a break from instructing to focus on life since they are finishing up high school. They are both 1st degree brown belts. They are extremely talented and their strengths are: throws, take downs, and submissions. They are identical twins and how we can tell them apart is their teaching style. Andrew is more detail oriented and breaks everything one by one and Aaron explains things in more of an explosive way, which is the style how he fights. Hopefully we can have them at the studio soon!
