Over the course of more than 40 years, a devoted Wu Shu community of Tai Chi and Gung Fu practitioners have come to Los Angeles from near and far to practice with Sifu James Wing Woo.
His lifelong mission is to refine and perfect the James Wing Woo method of Chinese Martial Arts.
Sifu Woo always has something new to teach and inspire his students. Sharp-eyed and keen-witted as ever, he continues to teach weekly classes in Tai Chi and Gung Fu at a spacious gym he built in 1988, in the back of his home in Los Angeles, California.
As he says, “You never stop learning, no matter how old you are.”
