Welcome to the American Wu Shu Society
To all those who follow the AWS an organization formed in 1989. 28 years supporting Wu Shu all over the world may come to an end this year. Our local district councilman for the past 3 years has failed to grant us council funding and I have been financially carrying the weight of this organization out of my pocket. I was just sent an email saying that my application for 2018 funding has not been fulfilled. People do not want to give money specially for something they do not care about. People love their own kids but do not care about programs and organizations who pour out to changing young peoples lives. I am not longer stressed because for me it is sign of FREEDOM. What hurts is to lose something which in this country is very difficult to get and that is tax exempt status. Hard to believe that the AWS is recognized by 117 countries and that now it may mean goodbye.

This is a program where your children will learn not only the physical education to a high level but bring forth mentally strong kids who wish to excel. We've been productive since 2003 and are worthy of your attention and support.
