Master: Daniel Wang

Shifu Daniel Wang was born in Shandong province, China. Shifu Wang started learning Kung Fu at the age of 6. At the age of 8, under the tutelage of his grandfather Fan Shu Long, he began his life long training in Kung Fu. Taken in addition to normal education, the Kung Fu training was arduous. A typical day began at 4am with 3 hours of Kung Fu drills and ended at 10pm for another 3 hour session of drills before sleeping. Due to his excellent potential in Kung Fu and hearty attitude, Shifu Daniel Wang had the opportunity to learn various Chinese Kung Fu techniques from some famous Kung Fu masters, in particular a few folk Kung Fu masters who were successors of some secret ancient Kung Fu skills, such as Taiyi Tai Chi Chuan.

Shifu Wang has spent most of his life studying and teaching martial arts. He was also a Senior Instructor for the Chinese Army for 10 years and specialized in training body guards for the Chinese Army. The diversity of his Kung Fu skills enables him to apply different techniques freely and effectively in self defence. In 2000, Shifu Wang founded Praying Mantis Kung Fu Academy in Sydney, Australia (later renamed Kung Fu Republic Academy). Master Wang will conduct all Kung Fu training at our new school in Singapore for its starting phase.

Shifu Daniel Wang is the only successor of Taoist Taiyi Tai Chi Chuan.

Peter Tsingris

My name is Peter Tsingris, I have been training in martial arts from about 10 years of age.

I started training in Taikwondo, then hapkido until I was about 15 years of age. Then I started training Tai Boxing which I continued training under several instuctors. In about 1990 I met a Tai Boxer by the name of Sakad Petchindee. He was 11 years undefeated Tai Boxing champion in 4 different weight divisions, 15 years Bermese Boxing champion (virtually no rules fighting), world Kick Boxing champion, won and was at one stage of his career ranked no 2 in the world in boxing knocked out the world Karate champion in the 1st round, knocked out the world Taikwondo champion in the 1st round, with about 390 professional fights under his belt he is definitely pound for pound one of the greatest fighters that ever lived. After a few months of knowing him, Sakad asked me to be his manager which I accepted. Then I also managed sakads trainer Saksakon S sakshanalong a famous Tai Boxer and former world champion, and helped Alex Tui (world Kickboxing champion) and Sakads student in his career.During the time I was managing Sakad I trained and perfected my Tai Boxing skills under the instruction of Sakad and Saksakon. Also helped teach and started several Tai Boxing schools.

I was always interested in Kung Fu, especially the internal styles of Kung Fu, and one of my life ambitions was to find a genuine internal Kung Fu master to train with. After much research and searching I could not find anybody that I thought really understood and taught internal Kung Fu as a martial art which is what it was originally intended to be. One day I decided to have a look at a Tai Chi class taught by Master Wang. Upon entering the class Master Wang was more than happy to demonstrate some forms for me which could be performed slow or fast. I was very impressed with his amazing power and expertise. Then upon further investigation I realised that he also had a complete understanding of the martial aspect of the internal arts including Pa Kua and Hsing Yi. He was also a Master of Praying Mantis and Chin Na, in fact in all of my years of involvement in the martial arts I have never seen anybody in Australia that compares to Master Wang in the art of Kung Fu. So I started training in Tai Chi under Master Wang. Within a couple of months I felt 10 years younger, my energy levels, health and strength have consistently increased as I have trained in Master Wang's Tai Chi classes. I am now teaching Tai Chi, and Tai boxing at Master Wang's gym.

The study and practice of Kung Fu instantly awoke a deep and powerful element of my spirit that I threw myself into training and have never looked back . Currently I am developing and training for a lead role in a Kung Fu film which is in development. Training is rigorous, stringent and exhausting. It is also invigorating, empowering and some of the best fun I've ever had. Being a senior myself now I help teach beginners the basics of Praying Mantis, Wushu, Weapons and self defense
