    Northern Mantis: Your thoughts/Your experience

    I've got a teacher nearby who teaches Northern Mantis, and I was wondering what people think/have experienced in regards to this martial art. What are it's strengths/weaknesses? How well does it fair against other styles? Lemme know whatcha think.

    Southern is way better.
    Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the **** I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

    I like it. Your legs should get worked. You will be doing alot of circular blocking. Lots of variety. Do not forget that the guy who supposedly invented the style had over 17 systems mastered before he created the style. Also, mantis is not all about poking people in the eyeball incase you did not know.

    But go and check it out. If the teacher can kick your ass, he can probably teach you something.

    Hehe, kicking my ass isn't really a testament of skill =P

    Yeah, I'll definately check the guy out. Problem is, I'd only be able to get an hour of instruction a week from the guy, 'cause of my schedule.

    I've heard this teacher is really great, but I'm wondering if an hour of instruction per week in the art would really help me, if or maybe I should seek something I can attend more regularly from someone who wouldn't be so great...
