Seven Star Praying Mantis Kung Fu was founded in the 17th century by Wong Long, a Shaolin student. Master Long developed a new system based on his observations of the praying mantis. He copied the insect’s quick grasping and ripping claw movements, then classified them into attack and defense patterns. Noting that the mantis has weak legs, Wong Long based the system’s footwork on the agility of the monkey, then completed his new system by importing the best techniques from seventeen other styles of his day.
The Seven Star Praying Mantis educational series includes on each tape the forms listed shown at performance speed with at teaching speed with a clear, detailed explanation of the defense and attack potentials of each movement. Each move in the forms is taught from three different angles and has extremely detailed explanations of how the moves are to be conducted. After each move is shown, the applications are demonstrated from two different angles to make them very easy to understand. These videos give you an excellent understanding of the praying mantis style.
