Fundi Weeks began his study of martial arts at the age of six in Silver Spring, MD. For the past twenty years he has dedicated his time and energy to the pursuit of self discovery. He began his journey with the study of Shaolin Chuan (more commonly known as Kung Fu), until receiving his instructor rank at the age of 16, making him the youngest in his school to do so at the time.
At this point his studies turned to the internal arts of Tai Chi Chuan, Hsing I Chuan, and Pa Kua Chang. In addition he has studied the arts of Capoeira, Kiungo Cha Mkono (Shacklehands), Hatha Yoga, and various long and short weapons.
He continues his studies under the tutelage of Nganga Mfundishi Tolo-naa, founder of QuieScience Sacred Science Temple. In addition to the internal arts practice, Fundi Weeks is a student of Traditional Chinese Medicine in the holistic healing methods of acupuncture, herbal medicine, and Tuina massage therapy.
In addition to teaching at Self Mastery Systems, Fundi Weeks has worked with Funfit Family Fitness Center, specializing in youth martial arts programs and working with special needs children. He also does community outreach and education in partnership with Adventist Healthcare, teaching workshops on Tai Chi Chuan, the health benefits of Tea, meditation, and Yoga.
It is his personal philosophy that martial arts be used as a method for self empowerment and discovery. The physical aspect of martial arts training is only the first, and simplest step, through further practice one can truly refine their character, and grow towards fulfillment of their personal purpose.
