Northern Shaolin 7 Star Praying Mantis Kung Fu

Sifu Mike and Assistant Instructor Justin performing Three Section Staff Versus Spear7 Star Praying Mantis Kung Fu is considered by many to be one of the first forms of MMA, being a combination of the best techniques from 17 different styles of Kung-Fu combined with the the fierce, lightening-fast predatory style of the praying mantis and the extremely Sifu Winter and Craig demonstrating Shou Faat (hand technique)efficient footwork of the monkey.

Our classes cover every aspect of Martial Arts from Long, Short, and Grappling Empty hand techniques to 18 different weapon styles, from short weapons to long weapons, from singled handed to dual wielding. We pride ourselves on teaching all application oriented skills.

Each of these techniques and weapons develop a different part of the body, resulting in increased strength, physical fitness, and endurance. Practitioners will not only benefit from the self-defense aspect of the training, but will also find that with it they are continuing to develop a greater sense of focus and achievement, self-confidence, and self-discipline.
