In 2018, RDS founder Scott Bird, began transforming RDS China from a profitable business into a non-profit organisation, dedicating his kung fu school in China to improving the lives of orphans and underprivileged children. His vision, to illuminate the paths of these young souls with confidence, self-worth, and discipline empowering them to overcome adversity and embrace a future filled with promise and success.

Since the beginning, RDS has provided support to local orphanages and embraced the hearts of the less fortunate through the RDS scholarship program. Now, a powerful shift takes place as everyone becomes an integral part of the cause when they attend kung fu training in China at RDS!
