Shaolin Chi Mantis Traditional Buddhist Kung Fu Podcast

By Shaolin Chi Mantis
Shaolin Chi Mantis was founded in 1992 to teach traditional northern Shaolin Kung Fu, Taoist Tai Chi Chuan and Confucian strategy in a maximum security prison in Utah. The Governor hired Buddha Zhen for rehab centers and family conferences after he measurably lowered the recidivism and violence within the inmates. This podcast will allow us to share our teachings with more than our students.

I will purchase the PRO Zoom version soon.  Perhaps with that "Stimulus Check" I've been waiting for since December 2020.  OR, purchase some books.  If I sell more books I can purchase more stuff...

004-Shaolin Chi Mantis Traditional Buddhist Kung Fu
I'm really excited about making my Shaolin Kung Fu videos... but I'm 67 years old now. I've got 200 classes recorded and another 150 classes to record to complete the Shaolin Chi Mantis BEGINNER PROGRAM. I've got 13 years of classes mapped out so I'm going to be 80 years old to complete these lessons. Sheesh.  I've been wanting to make these videos since 1992 when I started teaching professionally.  I've been doing Shaolin Kung Fu since 1980.  I got certified by Grandmaster Wong Jack Man in 1995.  I tell a story of one of my sojourns to San Francisco when I was training under Shifu Wong Jack Man.  The senior students, Shifu Rick Bucky Wing, and Shifu Arthur Chin took me to Chinatown to get my signature chop of "Zhen Shen-Lang" to stamp on the graduation certificates of my students. This song is a warrior song by American Zen, "Daryoon," from the LEVEL 2 = Christ Killer album.  The slide guitar is performed by Rory G. I've built the school website, or Shaolin Chi Mantis ONLINE KWOON at
