    Pretty much chop suey from 1974 - 1990, then I joined Wah Lum and studied with Art D`Agostino. I was then handed off to Shifu Sean Cochran and with Chan Pui. Then I left Wah Lum and began my training with Peng Lai under Shifu John Scolaro. My Shifu now is Kevin Brazier. His Shifu is Master Shi Zheng Zhong. Shifu Kevin Brazier will be my last teacher.
    I am still a student practicing - Wang Jie Long

    Welcome to the board!
    My original kung fu style is Nu Hou Quan which I studied in the late 70's from Leroy Johnson and taught for 30 years.
    I was first introduced to Northern Praying Mantis (WHF) in the middle '80s by Mike Biggie and have trained on and off with him in group and/or private classes since then. I also learned the Wah Lum Little Mantis set.
    Now I teach my own interpretation of Mantis (wuying tanglangquan) in North Canton, Ohio.

    There are two types of Chinese martial artists. Those who can fight and those who should be teaching dance or yoga!

    53 years of training, 43 years of teaching and still aiming for perfection!

    hello!

    Originally studied Shaolin Kempo Karate (Villari Flavor) in high school, took a couple years off for college.
    Started studying under Shifu Stanley Tabor in 2002 and have been with him ever since. Originally learning Wah Lum Praying Mantis kung fu, now fully transitioned into Taiji Meihua.

    welcome to the board Shifudrew
    got my start in hungar by the late master ting fong wong, one of the 10 tigers of Canton in 1981. switched to Okinawn Karate from one of victor vegas top students Leslie Heri and eanred a black belt, then went a praying mantis kung fu seminar hosted by Dean Economus given by my current shifu of ba bu tang lang's shyun kwon long student of Wei Xiao Tung in 1989 and got my arse handed to me with little to no effort and I knew that 8 step would be the system I would do forever and have been teaching it since 1996.

    I recenlty had the pleasure of being invited by Raymond Fogg to attend his seminar and was honner to meet and touch hands with him.

    Yes, Si Gung Fogg is a remarkable man. I don't get the opportunities to train with him as much as I like, due to work schedule, but I take advantage of every chance.
    Am looking forward to spending time with him soon, if not, then by December, when we will all gather to celebrate his birthday. Thank you for the reply.

    Talking mantis

    Under Sifu Hughes in Austin TX (2yrs) who's under Si Gung Raymond Fogg.

    Though I'm not currently training the mantis, I hope to return with better employment.

    My resume sounds pretty puny by comparison as I have only been training 7 star under Sifu Henry Chung for almost 5 years now. Seems like I am one of the few people to have never studied any other MA. I was able to briefly meet Sifu Fogg at the promotion ceremony of one of Sifu Chung's students this past summer.

    Nothing puny about that! You are very fortunate to be training with Sifu Chung. He is a very respected member of the Mantis community.

    codeboy,
    no worries as mooying said, 5 dedicated years is far more than alot of people put in, and you are fortunate to start with mantis, some of us needed to wade through teachers and other styles till we found what we loved, your lucky.
    Dont worry about the years trained eiher, we have long resumes because we're old LOL 44 years in age with 29 years training, however no matter how old I am I will always be younger than mooying .... LOL

    I trained in a Korean lineage of Mantis which included aspects of Shaolin Longfist and Bagua under Stefano Dalla Vecchia and Guiseppe Bon in Italy. They both had trained under Master Shin Dae Woung who had trained in Korea under Lu Shui Tien, Lee Poyon, and Lim Poon Chang. I trained in this lineage for around 4 years before returning to the US.

    I still practice this curriculum on my own, though my primary practice since 2002 has been the Hsing-I Bagua & Tai Chi of the Tang Shou Tao Association.

    My name's Kurt and I was a regular of Sifu Henry Chung from 1992 through 2003, then I had to move.

    Been doing Judo and BJJ ever since but still love the kung fu and go back to refresh every once in a while. Basically, whenever I get too ****y, Sifu will slap me around and show me that I still don't know shi'ite. Gotta love it.
