Oh, and the lineage given earlier in this thread is completely correct.
If this lady you speak of studied under the Master Wu Ma Jiang Bao and has his permission to teach, you will be receiving the genuine art. Her personal tastes may lie in the new age direction, this is not unusual, but her teaching of Wu style TCC will be accurate and training under her would likely be the only way to get genuine Wu style in your area.
I'll tell you what. I studied under one of Wu Kwong Yu's (Eddie's) Disciples for about two years that I really did not like. Still don't. She was abrasive, rude, crude, and about as new age as you can get.
Let's just say, we didn't like each other very much.
The Disciple I started training under had to move elsewhere for a while and this lady took over.
I hated it.
In fact, I can honestly say this girl was single handedly responsible for the collapse of the Academy I attended. All but about six of the students who attended the Academy quit, flat out, after just a few months due to her awful, awful personality.
But some of us perservered and we did learn genuine Wu style TCC under her instruction.
Why did we stay?
For the art we loved. No other reason.
When our first Disciple returned he rebuilt the Academy. Some of the old students returned, most did not, and we moved on.
I don't regret training under this person, because I was not there for her, I was there for me. I wanted to learn and keep going forward with Wu style TCC, and so was willing to put up with this socially ignorant, awful to be around person for a good long time rather than not keep up with the art that I had learned to love.
My advice is, if you are interested in Wu style and have a path to the art that is as pure as this one sounds....
You really should go for it.
Otherwise, stick with the YCF Center you are with now and keep up with your training in this wonderful aspect of TCC.
Either way, you're getting the genuine article from two different, but equally legitimate branches of the TCC tree.
Good luck and good practice.
