Yantai (Laiyang), the city where we are located, is the birthplace of Praying Mantis Boxing.
The Praying Mantis Fist, or Tanglang Quan in the Chinese language, was a popular fist during the Han Dynasty. The fist alone holds a rich history that goes beyond 200 A.D. The fist is very important when in close combat. To learn Mantis Fist seriously, there are professional Praying Mantis Fist masters in our Shaolin Kung Fu academy in China.
The Mantis Fist is an essential Kung Fu style and offers great value in improving a person’s health. It was a popular fist in certain cities, mostly in the city of Laiyang in Yantai, as well as the City of Qingdao. The fist had originated from Yantai and gradually spread to other cities in China and then all over the world.

Wanglang would later integrate the parts of the famous 18 fists and adopt monkey movements in the forming of the fist. The Mantis Fist was eventually perfected and became the fastest and most agile fist ever in Kung Fu. The Mantis Fist is one of the many Kung Fu styles taught by skilled masters here at Kunyu Mountain Shaolin Kung Fu School.
