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.

Back in the day, when I was first running a school, I had both the good fortune and the frustration of being mentored by Da' Shifu. He came in each day. Usually during the afternoon when it was slow. Most often wearing his thread bare jeans, a long sleeve shirt 20 years out of fashion, and a wide brimmed straw hat. Not exactly an appearance of grandeur.

Very often new students mistook him for the landscaper or a handyman. He thought this funny and played along with it.

Kitty had driven home from her job working as a bar manager early in the morning of March 13, 1964. Arriving home at about 3:15 a.m., she parked in the Long Island Rail Road parking lot about 100 feet from her apartment's door.
