Hi. Welcome to MT.

7 Star Northern Praying Mantis is a very strong and versatile system. it is considered the hardest (in the hard/soft concept) of the Mantis substyles. It has a strong connection to Monkey, in that it has borrowed footwork from that style. It also has strong connections to qinna.

May have originated in, or around, Shandong province in China.
Don't really know when. Northern Praying Mantis generally was developed in either the 13th or 18th century (probably somewhere in between in reality).

That's about all I can give you. Its not an art that I study, just one I am intrigued by.

I recommend you follow Kasey's advice, you're bound to get more information.

Hello and welcome to MartialTalk ... Personally, I have no knowledge of the system in question, but I'm sure you'll get some good info here, in the CMA forums.
