    videos aren't working for me, but the image gallery has some goofy **** in it.



    this is where you punch them in the chest and kick them on the knee at the same time.

    it is thus an unstoppable attack.

    also, nike has a little-known line of kung fu shoes.

    Those videos look pretty good! I could dig a CMA like that.

    I noticed in the first video that a lot of the throws look very San Shou like. Is this normal for Praying Mantis or has this been added in?

    Also, is training like this normal for Praying Mantis?

    Nothing is "normal" in CMA.

    Those videos look good. Good hand speed.

    leere_form: That's a picture that looks like just a opposite side kick and punch. It is very common in CMA to punch and kick at the same time.

    There is a lot of "Shuai" (wrestling/takedowns) in Tang lang and many other Kf styles. My white crane instructor learned Tang Lang in Taiwan and what he showed us was pretty much the same (this was in the early 80s).

    If I were a lesser man I'd make some joke about how the white glow eminating from his fist comes from his overabundance of qi.

    As you may be aware, fair London town has recently been blessed with a substantial influx of our Polish bretheren. They are, to a man, 6'+ pillars of muscle that have been wrestling for twenty years and are really into metal. The Poles, in short, are the fucking future, and the rest of us inferior beings had better get used to it.
