Editorial Reviews

This instructional DVD video, from's Seven Star Praying Mantis Kung Fu Series, contains a never-before available collection of some of the most effective chain styles or "chained fighting techniques" from the Seven Star Praying Mantis Kung Fu (Tang Lang Q'uan/Tong Long Kuen) fighting system.

Chain styles are an essential element in the study and mastery of praying mantis kung fu, and take mantis fighting theory and individual fighting techniques (including punching, kicking, throwing, and defensive techniques) and turn them into effective, applicable series of continuous motions. Chain styles allow students to employ mantis fighting theories and principles in effective, usable combinations designed for maximum speed and effect.

In this video, instructor Sean Daily along with Carlos Lopez and Pat Brown (all 10-year mantis practitioners) take viewers step-by-step through the various techniques, footwork, handwork, and practical hands-on applications for 12 different chain styles derived from northern praying mantis kung fu. Techniques are shown at multiple speeds to allow viewers to understand subtle nuances in addition to the basic motions.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media.'s standard return policy will apply.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great applied techniques in mantis! April 22, 2014
Verified Purchase
This DVD, unlike many DVD's on martial arts, in one where the Shifu shows the technique, what you need to do to perform it correctly and what not to do, and then shows it applied in a mock combat scenario. I wish I could see every Shaolin form in use and in real application like he does in this DVD. A bit pricey, but worth it . My kung fu buddy and I practiced it a bit and are thinking about getting the whole series and splitting the bill. Good understandable content.
