Donations in this worthwhile program go towards sponsoring at-risk youth in developing confidence, self esteem, and discipline. Youths are placed in a program of Shou' Shu' training designed to help them with these all important aspects.

Hello, My name is Denise and I am a life long resident of Calaveras County, San Andreas to be more specific. I have a 12 year old son who is a student of Sheng Chi Kung Fu. It is so amazing to me to watch his personal growth and strength with every class. I would also like to tell anyone who is reading this about the change in a sweet young girl who rides with us to Sheng Chi. First let me say she would not be going to class at all if there were not business sponsors who donate $ to the Sheng Chi Foundation. The foundation is great.
