Shandong is a northern province in china and that's where wang lang (found of mantis) is from. there's nothing such as shandong mantis because all northern mantis is shandong mantis. I tried to trace your sifu and it looks like he's related to wah lum, but i did not see anywhere that he is sifu though.Apparently, this is another Praying Mantis Kung Fu style. Where does this fall between Wah Lum and 7 Star? Is this a stand alone just like those two?
hehe that's good! now u'll be the mantis master on this forum!!!After speaking with Sifu, he said that "our style of Mantis is Taiji Plum Flower Mantis, although I've got an awful lot of Wah Lum Mantis under my belt as well."
Now I am clear about what I am studying.
i meant to say by knowing mantis already and learning tai chi mantis you will become better than other in mantis...Two weeks in to the curriculum and I am the master already??? Wow, I should of found this style sooner! lol
