Follow the way of the mantis. Master the art of Kung Fu.

Small in size but ferocious in striking, the praying mantis overcomes its weaknesses with its strength.

Praying Mantis Kung Fu takes inspiration from both the principle and claw technique of the praying mantis.

At KUNGFU REPUBLIC, learn the unique art of Praying Mantis Kung Fu with masters of the ancient technique.

The Beginning of Praying Mantis Kung Fu Training

“Tang Lang Quan” or the praying mantis technique first became a martial art form over a millennium ago. Built upon the claw strike of the mantis and footwork of the monkey, Tang Lang Quan is a rare complete Kung Fu style.

Learning the fluid movements of the praying mantis requires one to think like the mantis.

From the slow and still positions to the sudden high-low changes, the praying mantis is unpredictable and complex. In our Kung Fu training classes, we break down each aspect of the technique such as extension, bend, rotation, and balance.

Learning to Move like the Mantis

To adapt to the quick and changing mantis technique, Praying Mantis Kung Fu training approaches one action at a time.

Punching – Eight Hard & Twelve Soft
Punching like the mantis entails moving with the softness of the butterfly – completely unnoticed. Then, striking down like a hammer at the right opportunity.

Attacking – Three Joints
The body moves in a coordinated motion in Praying Mantis Kung Fu training. The power of attack originates from the leg, makes its way through joints, and is delivered by the hand.
