    Is the mantis in your style field "preying" instead of "praying" by mistake or on purpose?

    It is spelled that way on purpose I like it better. It is spelled like that on the main web sight for the 8-step Preying Mantis system. I don't know which spelling is correct I just like "Preying" More than "Praying" but have seen both spellings used.

    Care to post a link to the webSITE? Thanx.

    You know, it is not about what you like better, that's your thing of choice, but this is about the name of the insect species.
    And it's praying mantis.

    Praying mantids get their name from the appearance of their front legs, which they hold in a "prayerlike" manner. "Mantid" derives from a Greek word meaning "prophet" or "seer."
    They indeed are preying, and quite succesfully, but your school shouldn't use the "e" word either, if it's teaching tong long...

    I believe the web site is www.8step.com could be wrong.

    and I am learning Ba Bu Tang Lang Quan not tong long. I probavly am wrong but the "e" is used on the web sight when talking about the system not the insect.

    But the traditional name of the system takes on the name of the insect species. Everytime I've seen people referring to "preying mantis", be it the MA or the insect, it's because they are doing an spelling/translation error (someone correct me if I'm wrong.)

    From wiki (science stubs are quite reliable references as opposed to all other wiki stubs):

    A praying mantis, or praying mantid, is the common name for an insect of the order Mantodea. Often mistakenly spelled preying mantis (an eggcorn, since they are notoriously predatory), they are in fact named for the typical "prayer-like" stance.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    1:www. 8stepschools.com spells it "preying mantis" when refering to the system

    2: I am learning Ba Bu Tang Lang Quan, not" tong long."

    3: "preying mantis "(which refers to the system) not the "praying mantis"(which refers to the insect)

    I think the creators of the system didn't really think that one out or you're not representing them correctly.
