View Full Version : Anyone heard of James Wu in Philly?
I've talked with several martial artists from the chicago area who met a Praying Manits instructor named James Wu while traveling in Philly several years ago. They thought we was one of the highest level mantis practictioners they'd ever seen. Does anyone have any information on him? Lineage? Still instructing? Opinions? Thanks...
Hmm... doing a search doesn't bring anyone up. There is a mantis school in PA, but not in Philidelphia that I can see. If there is it would be great to know.

My uncle is James Wu. I don't recall him teaching praying mantis though. He works as an accountant and plays golf in for pleasure. I think you've got the wrong person.

Ah, I've received my registration confirmation...
James Wu did live in the Philly area and taught Praying Mantis and Six Harmonies Fist. He moved back to Taiwan a few years ago.
He has recently produced a mantis video which I think is advertised in some of the kung fu magazines. His nephew, Paul Sun is also a Praying Mantis instructor currently teaching in the Philadelphia area. Paul's website is www.teammantis.com (http://www.teammantis.com) (it's brand new and small still).

James who is an accountant and lives in Philly also happens to be a close friend of my uncle. I asked him about hsi knowledge of praying mantis. My uncle confirmed that James did have a collection of butterflies but had NO interest in praying mantis. Like I said, you've all got the wrong person.

The correct response is thanks. But I'm sure in real life you're a jolly person.
