Welcome to China's Hakka Praying Mantis Kungfu eSource

The China Southern Praying Mantis Kungfu Survey™

A ten year ongoing research project!  Living in China continuously, since 2002 (and 26 years before that in Hawaii, Korea, Japan and Taiwan), in the last ten years, I've travelled three corners of China, visited China's four Southern Praying Mantis Temples, and befriended dozens of China's Southern Mantis elders and teachers sharing stories and skills.  Kwongsai Jook Lum, Chu Gar Mantis and Iron Ox. 

Preview this Wong Fei Hong Jook Lum Temple Movie Now!

And I've yet to release the bulk of the research!  I have hundreds of hours of video and film from 1950 onward never before released!  All three branches of Som Dot's Hakka Mantis!  Join me now and continue sharing my Southern Praying Mantis Kungfu experience in China!   (Who am I?)

Intent - Warrior Spirit

The first principle is intent or will-power. Intent is simply defined as the "warrior spirit." Without it, there is no focus of the body and mind into one purpose. Strike with the soul, and you will never miss. Thought and action are one.

"The heart of the study of boxing is to have natural instinct resemble the dragon." - Wang Xiang Zhai (1885-1963) Dacheng Boxing


Rooting is the skill of developing the force of one thousand pounds in the feet. With it, the stance is as firm as Mt. Tai and not easily moved.

Without rooting, the power of the fist will be stagnated in the chest and one's feet will not be steady allowing him to be easily thrown about.
