Welcome to ACMAF
The ACMAF is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization created by Grandmaster James Shyun. We have a network of schools throughout the world dedicated to the teaching of Shyun Style Eight Step Preying Mantis Kung Fu and Shyun Style Tai Chi Chuan. This is a traditional Chinese martial arts system with a lineage that can be traced back hundreds of years to the Lao Shan Temples in the San Dong Province of China. The fundamental aspect of the ACMAF is to teach and promote a healthier balanced lifestyle for the practitioners of the system through athletic training, research, publication, competition, education and certification.
