A brief lesson of Kung Fu and the Praying Mantis style.

After observations and subsequent study of what made the Praying Mantis insect such a successful predator, founder Wang Lang 350 years ago knew had discovered something phenomenal. He had come to the conclusion that he could create a new style of kung fu, based on the character principles gleaned from the Praying Mantis’s predator ability. This new kung fu system would be an improvement over the larger hard style motions of the Shaolin style he had previously studied. He used the newfound skills of Praying Mantis kung fu to defeat his elder classmate monk Feng in sparring practice. Together with the other monks of the Shaolin temple Wang continued to develop the style.
