Northern Shao-Lin Long Fist: Northern Shao-Lin Long Fist is one of the major divisions of kung fu in China.Shao-Lin Kung Fu is the most complete and effective form of self-defense practiced in the world today. This powerful art that teaches punching, kicking, throwing, and grappling (joint locking and pressure points) was developed in the Shao-Lin Temple which was built in Northern China in 495 A.D.

Praying Mantis: Wang Lang created Praying Mantis Boxing at the end of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). Wang Lang like many other boxers was attempting to challenge and defeat a Shao-Lin monk. Shao-Lin Boxing was the premier boxing method in China and arguably the world at this time. After some unsuccessful attempts to defeat Shao-Lin monks, Wang Lang realized he needed another method. He based his new method on the movements of the praying mantis. With his new techniques Wang Lang was able to prevail over a Shao-Lin monk. Later, Monkey style foot work was adopted to compliment the Praying Mantis hand techniques.
