Curriculum:
TAIJI  INTERMEDIATE

The Shaolin Chi Mantis curriculums are composed of three separate Gongfu systems combined together:
  • Northern Shaolin Gongfu "Kung Fu" (from the Songshan Buddhist Temple)
  • Yang Style Taijiquan "Tai Chi"
  • Northern Praying Mantis (both Taiji Tanglang "Tai Chi Praying Mantis" & Qixie Tanglang "7 Star Praying Mantis")

This curriculum is interwoven with the other Gongfu systems that also have Intermediate Programs.

All Shaolin Chi Mantis and Tai Chi Youth curriculums are 4-month semesters. The seminar curriculums and after school programs are derived from these 4-month semesters.

This TAIJI  INTERMEDIATE curriculum of Shaolin Chi Mantis is 2-semesters.
The SHAOLIN  GONGFU  INTERMEDIATE curriculum of Shaolin Chi Mantis is 4-semesters.

So, a student IS a Taiji Advanced Level student while completing the Shaolin Gongfu Intermediate Program. The actual Praying Mantis Program begins during the Shaolin Intermediate Level after the student has attained the Taiji Advanced Level...

Sound confusing? Fortunately, Buddha Zhen Shen-Lang has provided us with curriculum outlines and Instructor guides for every Level of both Shaolin Chi Mantis and Tai Chi Youth. For a look at how all 3 curriculums combine to form Shaolin Chi Mantis see the SHAOLIN CHI MANTIS 7-YEAR POSTER.
