East River Chow Gar Tong Long

My thanks go to Grand Master Yip Chee Keung and U.K. representative Sifu Paul Whitrod for all their help teaching me East River Chow Gar Tong Long.


Sonnet of Southern Mantis
The hanging power is like a noose that opens and contracts.
The hands seize, hold and catch.
The head is down; eyes look sharp like a cat's.
The ribs open and close like the hinge of a door.
The legs are bent like a frog's, ready to spring.
When you achieve something in Praying Mantis Fist, then you are about to begin.
