"All the good comments that these fellow students have to say about Shun Shifu Mitchell and the Hei Long Shou Shu system is true. My "family" has grown so much due to the relationships I've built within the system. I plan to continue to train and teach in the Hei Long Shou Shu system for the rest of my life."

"My youngest child is enrolled at this school.  At 5 years old, he's a bundle of energy. Shifu Mitchell and his assistants have the patience and fortitude in dealing with my child. There is also a very good sence of community that the staff and parents foster with each other. I'm glad that shifu Mitchell has opened his school here."
