In 1998, Sifu Bart Mann and Hanshi Ron Carlson partnered together to form the Kempo First Foundation, which does business, in part, as the Colorado School of Wing Chun.

The Kempo First Foundation is a nonprofit 501-C-(3) Colorado corporation dedicated to teaching the path to self-improvement through the practice of a unique restorative system. Our programs help individuals grow toward self improvement through study in the traditions of the true martial way. We do not discriminate based on Race, Religion, Creed, Gender, Sexual Orientation, Disabilities, Medical Conditions, or Economic Status.

The Kempo First Foundation provides a service to communities through their works, assisting individuals to improve themselves. Our vision is to create a worldwide community of people who embrace and promote peaceful solutions to everyday problems.

The Kempo First Foundation promotes values that we feel are the foundation of a healthy, happy, and productive life. Through training in the martial way, these values are passed on through experiences, not lecture or examination.

The Colorado School of Wing Chun is kindly asking for donations to help us grow our programs through community outreach and investment in our future. The best way to help is to become a student, though we welcome any donations.

We would like to reach the goal of growing our program an additional $10,000 by the end of 2022.
