Shu Ren will offer a Chen style tai ji class for adults at our campus on Berkeley, on Thursdays this fall from 3:30-4:30.

Chen Style uses hard, soft, fast and slow movements for offensive and defensive fight application. At the same time, it is a method for the development of good health, preventing sickness, reducing stress and a way for meditation, quietness and relaxation. This is an introductory level class for any adult who is interested in Tai Ji.

Childcare will be available during the class. For more detailed information and to register, please download class forms here. We look forward to seeing you.

Teachers for Shu Ren Summer Camp

We are excited to have Ms. Ping Xue from Chinese American International School to teach our Pre-K summer camp. Ms. Xue has been teaching at CAIS for 14 years and is currently the Head Chinese Teacher in their Pre-K program. Our students will have a great opportunity to benefit from her years of experience teaching Mandarin in an immersion environment.

We are also pleased to have Ms. Yazhi He to teach the first two sessions of the summer camp for students in kindergarten and up. She currently teaches our after-school Chinese class and weekend classes in New Sprouts Chinese School in Oakland. The last two sessions of the summer camp will be taught by Ms. Joyce Chang, who will be our incoming 1st/2nd grade teacher in the fall. Ms. Chang currently teaches Mandarin at Garfield Elementary School in San Francisco.

If you have not yet signed up for the summer camp, this may be the last opportunity to do so. More information and registration forms can be found on the Shu Ren website. Please contact Jie Moore at if you have any questions. Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you this summer.
