Although Shaolin Chi Mantis is a NORTHERN Shaolin Gongfu school, this short and compact SOUTHERN GONGFU of the 5-FAMILIES Gongfu style. All the Northern Shaolin Forms are huge. This Form focuses on Heel Pivots, back alignment, and moving in a level plane.


This short Form has become a crowd pleaser at performances. We added Chinese numbers from 1 to 8 which teaches all Shaolin Chi Mantis students some Chinese language. Chanting in unison while performing these animal moves of another Southern Gongfu style, 5-ANIMALS Gongfu. Each student must not only perform in the group, each student must lead the group.
