Why settle for Traditional vs. modern training?We teach traditional Tanglang Quan (Mantis Boxing Kung Fu) paired with modern Sanda Kickboxing. Building around highly agile footwork, Tanglang Kung Fu combines striking with limb trapping before ultimately finishing with a throw or joint lock (Chin Na).
As today’s modern fighting competitions have shown us, some form of grappling or wrestling is a must! Our program teaches no gi wrestling that focuses on controlling one's opponent with throwing, joint locks, grab counters, constrictions and ground fighting, as taught in Jujitsu, Kung Fu and Chin Na.
We draw from both Historical European Weapon Fighting and Traditional Chinese Martial Arts Weapon Fighting to train students in the use of traditional weapons as instruments of fighting and modern self-defense.
