Shaolin Institute China Trip


My name is Kenny a recent Masters graduate of Northeastern University. Along my life journey martial arts has furthered my own personal development.

As a community leader my goal in life is to assist others in need. To continue my journey in helping others, an opportunity has arisen in China, the birthplace of martial arts that allows me to continue giving back. It is imperative that I attend this 12-day cultural immersion. This time sensitive invitation requires me to reach out to my fellow peers, community members, professors and loved ones for financial support.

Martial arts gives me a peace of mind that I know is worth sharing with others. The goal of this trip is to reach my fullest potential as a human being. Immersing myself into the origins of Chinese martial arts, spending day and night with Shaolin Monks, Masters of the Arts, and fellow practitioners to challenge myself as an inspired instructor.

I plan on taking back these experiences from martial arts in its most organic form to support the personal development of children and adults from diverse backgrounds.   

I would love to provide a contribution to my donors by documenting my entire experience in addition to a token of appreciation. Anyone interested in the martial arts or self-defense please feel free to reach out to me I would love to support you in getting to where you want to be.

You can find the trip itinerary below as well as click on this link  to Master Deru’s Shaolin Institute website as well as this link  for more information on my martial arts dojo and system San Da-JiuJitu-Do. 

This is a lifetime goal of mine. Thanks again for your support! If you ever had a dream share this message.
