Editorial Reviews

This instructional DVD video, from MartialSkill.com's Seven Star Praying Mantis Kung Fu Series, covers the Bai Yuan Tou Tao (a.k.a. Baag Yune Tow Toe) or "White Ape Steals the Peach" empty hand form, a popular routine in the Seven Star Praying Mantis Kung Fu (Tang Lang Q'uan/Tong Long Kuen) fighting system.

The White Ape Steals Peach form, usually taught as a beginning or intermediate form in most schools of Seven Star Praying Mantis, is a dynamic and powerful form characterized by flowing, powerful motions that combine hard and soft techniques. The form was developed by Yu Hai, a famous traditional Seven Star Praying Mantis Kung Fu practitioner. The Chinese government asked Yu Hai to create a mantis form that would become the standard Praying Mantis form for Modern Wushu. The result was the White Ape Steals the Peach form, which still maintains many traditional mantis roots, qualities, and techniques, due to Yu Hai's many years of experience with traditional praying mantis.

In this DVD, instructor Sean Daily and Carlos Lopez (both 10-year mantis practitioners) take viewers step-by-step through the form's various techniques, footwork, and handwork, and demonstrate practical hands-on applications for each motion. 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. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

I must say the "White Ape Steals Peach" - DVD is VERY GOOD, with clear and precice instruction, that is easy to follow. I like the fact that they have included applications, different options to view the form, and detailed instructions on how to execute to moves.

Mantis is quite a tricky style to learn, and through DVD it is even more difficult, but having a background already in Mantis, I found this instruction DVD to be very easy to learn from.

This is excellent work!! Keep it up, and give us many more DVD`s in the future.

I hope to see more weapons-DVD`s also (saber, stick, sword or other "exotic" weapons) from MartialSkill.

I will definitely check out the other videos from MartialSkill as well, looking forward to see the "Chain Styles DVD" soon. :)

This DVD is excellent.
The seven-star kung fu form "White Ape Steals the Peach" taught thorugh this DVD is well explained, well detailed, easy to understand, and focused in every important detail.
Particular important is the fact that this DVD presents an in-depth analysis on real fight form applications.
In my opinion, this is one of the best DVDs I have ever seen.
