Our school is a martial arts school focused on training in the art of Northern Shaolin and Tai Chi Praying Mantis Kung Fu. We are a form based system. What this means is, the movements we learn are all put together in pattern or form. We train these patterns or forms over and over until they become part of us. We consider this the best form of self-defense training because the movements become second nature and when a situation occurs, one doesn’t need to think about what they need to do, they just do it! We also practice self-discipline through awareness of our surroundings and respect by training and doing our best and being examples of those that are below us as students. Once you have been shown movements for a form, those movements are yours and you can ask and work with any student at your level and above with this material. You will find that the atmosphere is not the closed nature you may have experienced elsewhere. We have a very special school that wants to spread the knowledge of Shaolin and Praying Mantis Kung Fu and not keep it secret.
