Master Alan Nakamoto
"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... There was something genuine and authentic about him."

Soon afterwards, Sifu Nakamoto's journey into the world of Eight Step Preying Mantis Kung Fu and Shyun Style Tai Chi began. In 1999, he achieved a significant milestone when he became certified and recognized by the American Chinese Martial Arts Federation as a Sifu of the Eight Step Preying Mantis system.
