Hey all,
I have to say I'm fascinated with Sun style. Does anyone know if there are any Sun style people in New York City?

I have posted on other forums regarding Sun teachers throughout North America, and frankly have not found much of anything. The few that do know it are so lousy at apps that it is not even funny! Thankfully I have Tim. I would highly suggest learning it from Tim as you can get the form as it has always been taught, as well as the best apps!

There is a Sun Style Teacher on Long Island you may want to check out. He teaches out of the Dragon Tiger Kung Fu Center in Smithtown.

Jake, The teacher's last name is Miller. I met him once and observed a class. His teacher (I can't remember his name)I'm pretty sure, studied with Sun Shu Rong in China. I know that the original form, sword forms,apps and push hands are taught. What impressed me the most was his students sword fighting abilities. They were fast and highly skilled. I saw the Sifu do some apps and he was quite good. It looked to me like the students were getting exceptional training and instruction. Plus the teacher was a real nice guy, which is always a plus.

I know there is a Sun style teacher in Connecticut named Ai Ping, she was a classmate of Jet Li's and i think was a gold medal winner in Sun style in China

Sounds wushu-ish to me. Does she teach the traditional set or modern wushu set?
