Are you ready to move beyond the ordinary, and step into a higher level—a more complete and more spiritual form of martial arts?
We are honored to offer Seven Star Praying Mantis Kung Fu classes with Sifu Marlon Pilossoph—a rare, true master of this art form.
It is described as explosive and demanding, but Seven Star Praying Mantis Kung Fu is also one of the most rewarding martial arts... because its practice alone reconnects you with who you really are.
Seven Star Praying Mantis Kung Fu was developed in the 17th century and was based on the attack and self-defense techniques of the praying mantis, modeling the principles behind the insect’s movements. It emphasizes the mutuality of "hard" and "soft" techniques, so the practitioner is not limited to sheer power alone.
The system uses long-range kicking strategies, close-range trapping in-fighting techniques, attacks to vital points, joint locks, and throws. You’ll also learn traditional Chinese weapons such as the staff, sabre, spear and sword.
