6th Duan - Disciple Master - San Francisco, CA
My first recollection of Grandmaster James Shyun and Eight Step Preying Mantis is from a kung fu magazine article in 1985. It was not until some time later that I actually met Grandmaster Shyun in San Francisco, California. There was something genuine and authentic about him. Soon afterwards, my journey into the world of Eight Step Preying Mantis Kung Fu and Shyun Style Tai Chi began. Since then, I have continually been impressed with Grandmaster Shyuns knowledge and skill of the martial arts, including the healing arts. In 1999, I achieved a significant milestone when I became certified and recognized by the American Chinese Martial Arts Federation as a Sifu of the Eight Step Preying Mantis system. Sifu Alan currently resides in the San Francisco Bay Area and works in the pharmaceutical/biotechnology industry as a statistical programmer. He is available for private lesson in both Eight Step Preying Mantis and Shyun Style Tai Chi Chuan.
