Martial Arts is the most functional form of fitness available!
“Functional Fitness” means “exercise with daily purpose”… and what better purpose than changing your body while learning how to defend yourself, while also developing the mindset, lifestyle, and character traits that ensure successful self-development?
No matter what walk of life you come from there is a style of Martial Arts that will help you become the person that you want to be with the body you have always wanted to have.
Red Tiger’s mission is to produce the high-quality martial artists in a fun and safe environment.
Located in Surrey BC, we provide Martial Arts instruction to students all over the Vancouver lower mainland area including New Westminster, Surrey (Guildford, Fleetwood), Delta, Ladner, and Langley.
Mr. Rutherford is a passionate martial artist with over 8 years of experience in various disciplines. He joined Red Tiger Martial Arts in the summer of 2005 and wants nothing more than to learn all he can and share it with others. In 2007 he left his career as a civil technologist in order to teach full time, a career move that now has him doing what he loves.
Growing up in Prince George, B.C., he enjoyed many hobbies including five years of full contact football and two years studying kung fu. Mr. Rutherford is happy to be a part of Red Tiger and is looking forward to long and happy future teaching martial arts.
