Shifu Sumers has inspired more than just a few people.

She was our inspiration for the Sheng Chi Foundation. This website and whole endeavor is a project of the Sheng Chi Foundation.

She was the youngest black belt ever in Shou' Shu'

She was the first in her family to graduate high school, she then went on to college. First in her family to break free of the welfare system and become independent.

At five years old she watched and trained in secret because we told her she was too young. Then she showed us we were wrong when she stepped on the mat at age seven and had memorized the first few belts. She had been watching class and then practicing in secret.

I could go on and on about how wonderful she is and how proud we are of her. But instead I thought I'd share this article with you. I just scanned it and thought you would enjoy it.

"Kung Fu Soothes Girl's Soul"

There are some really critical points brought up in this article. Critical to how Shou' Shu' training helps people. I hope you notice them. If you do, mention them in the comments.

I was 12 when my mother left and if wasn't for Shifu Samson taking an interest in me, I would of not made it threw school or life, He taught me 5 animal style Kung fu and it was one on one just as I needed, God puts people in your Life to make a difference, He loves you and me, so much that He sent His only Son Jesus to die on the cross and Rise again, You ask Him to forgive you of your sins and take you to Heavan when you die, it's that easy, Jesus did the hard part. well I gotta to go.
Yours in Christ

I´ve just seen the Shou Shu Demo, it was amazing to see the high tech of the students who I congrat to all of them. I wonder that we as students have to learn and understand what is inside every stance, every weapon and every application to achieve that level of expertise. And at the same time keeping in mind what weaknesses and strengths we have with each beast that we are able to learn in order to reach the real knowledge of each of them. Thanks to all of you to have given me the chance to watch the best quality of the students of this School. Richard Canthom
