I am thinking of joining a new school but I need some information on this style. Has anyone heard of this style and can you point me to more information on the web. I did a search and didn't find anything may be I am spelling it wrong.
I talked to the instructor and the school is going to be new and will open soon but I would like to check out more information on this style if I could befor I commit.

Well are there any more details you know? Cause I think you are right in saying you spelled it wrong. But if there was anything more that you could share, it might make it easier at identifying the name.

"sho shu" is REALLY broad. Considering that sho by itself can mean 10+ different words. And even more in different dialects. I can think of around 20+ with only mandarin and cantonese. Stating the dialect of chinese helps us identify it better. If its possible, you can show a picture of the actual chinese characters. That is the most accurate way I can help identify what you are talking about hehe.

Thanks guys for your reply. I don't know much of kung fu because I have been in Tae Kwon Do for some time now. I have talked to someone who studies under the instructor but he is a Tae Kwon Do guy too and doesn't know much of this style but he said I have the spelling right. I will try to talk to the instructor more about this style but I am concerned about offending him if I question him to much about the origins of his style.

I know what you mean by offending. But consider that you're 'shopping' for schools right now. He should understand that you would want to seek more infomration about the style. Specially since the school is new.

Usually, interested people get to check out a class, to get a feel for the style of training, and the art itself. Because the school is new, you won't get to do this. So there should be nothing wrong in asking stuff like, what kind of techniques does the style emphasize, what does the name stand for, etc.

Better to ask now than when you become an actual student.

Maybe the spelling you were looking for was "Shou-soua" found it in another topic by Neko456:

Ok I talked to the instructor today and the spelling is:
Shou Shu and I am doing more checking. I did watch him teach a friend of mine today and the style looks very effective. If anyone has more info on this style I love to here from you!

Well with the new word you gave I did some new searching. And well many red flags went up within a short period of time.... thats not good.

Alot of this has to do with the fact that they claim to be a chinese art yet it was created by an American (not always bad per say) and has many elements common to Japanese arts.

As well I have read oppinions from other people on seperate forums and it seems many believe it is a Mcdojo.

Also from what I have seen I don't like the high claims they make of their style and some statements they make about it. For example (straight from their page):
Quote:

Blue Belt: When you reach the high blue belt level. You will be moving 3-5 time faster then you can now and will able to defend yourself against 2-3 people at the same time.




Umm sorry... no...

Quote:

Black Belt: When you reach the black belt level you will be 100% reactive, you will not have to think at all, and it will be as if the opponent is in slow motion.




LOL!

http://www.mooreschinesemartialarts.com/ <-- seems to be the page thats the center of it all sort-a-speak

See all this stuff screams Mcdojo. But as always you must see for yourself (maybe even bring a friend more knowledgable than yourself in this area along, if possible). Anything I can offer you will be purely based on internet info and not experience.

In conclusion: Be very wary of this school and its claims. I'd be rather skeptical.
