Praying Mantis Video


            A rather nice video on some Praying Mantis techniques.


            The Mantis Hook and Pluck technique are both covered in my book, along with other principles seen here. The one modification I would make here is to use a palm-heel strike rather than a closed fist punch to follow the elbow pluck (Tsai). Heads are hard and boney and better attacked with a palm-heel rather than a fist.
