Although, no experience is necessary to learn basic self-defense, any martial artist of any style may benefit from the philosophy, principles, and training of the Bamboo Temple.  Due to the efficiency of motion, only 1,500 square feet is necessary for thirty six participants.

Southern Praying Mantis was brought to the United States from China around 1947 by the Late Lam Sang Sifu who settled in NYC.  At his death in 1991, he had taught commercially hundreds of students at the Chinese Merchant Associations in Chinatown, although, he accepted no non-Chinese students and only a few live-in disciples.

Master Gin Foon Mark is one such disciple and is credited with bringing the Southern Praying Mantis style out to the public and to the non-Chinese.  Sifu Louie Jack Man has continually taught privately for nearly 40 years to both Chinese and non Chinese.  And many of the senior disciples of the Late Lam Sang , including Sibok Wong Baklim and Jesse Eng have remained active but silent in the NYC Chinatown area.  We believe the source of strength in the family tree is in it's roots!

The Bamboo Temple principle is truth in training, effectiveness in skill.  Money is secondary.  If interested in hosting a seminar, contact any of Schools or Branches - click here.
