Valley Springs Martial Arts Owner

Hi, I’m Pierre Joubert.

I know how important it is to find
the right martial arts school.

I remember when I was a child, being bullied every day at school. It was terrible but I didn’t have any way to make it stop or build my confidence. Then, my parents enrolled me in a martial arts school. Little did I know that beginning my martial arts journey would be one of the most life-changing and profound experiences of my life!

I started teaching martial arts and sharing this experience with others when I was just 15. I made a commitment to serving and empowering others and I’m here to share that with the community of Valley Springs by teaching children and adults the confidence, leadership, and fitness skills that can only be achieved through martial arts.

Our students are capable, knowledgeable, & confident

They approach school, work, home life, athletics, and their world with a mind and ability that is a cut above the crowd. Our school fosters the kind of people you would want to be around and want to be. We fight hard with total respect for our instructors and fellow students. We push our body’s limits without running the risk of harm. We train for real-life scenarios so that we can live in our world without fear. We test our minds to grow them. We commit to the strength of character both on the mat and everywhere outside our studio doors. We respect tradition and train for the future.

We are Shou Shu and we are here for everyone who wants a stronger mind, body, and spirit.

Welcome to Moore’s Martial arts of Valley Springs!

We are a family friendly, self-defense school dedicated to providing our students with the highest quality martial arts experience - and provide it right here in the California foothills.

Moore’s Shou Shu has been faithfully teaching what we call, “true self-defense” for over 50 years. Our style is based in traditional Kung Fu, but we recognize the strengths that many other martial arts deliver to a thorough self-defense training. Because of this, Shou Shu offers a unique and highly functional training style in a traditional, disciplined, and respectful environment.

We Share & teach The Same Values You Teach At Home.

Our programs have a strong focus on personal development. The foundations of our morals, values, and core character traits are formed in our early years. For this reason, the programs at Valley Springs Martial Arts are an essential way to enhance the growth and personal development of young students of all ages.
