[Ben] "So I'm here with Longfei Yang, he's a master of the Shanxi style Praying Mantis Kung Fu, thanks very much for being here with us today Longfei." [Longfei Yang, Praying Mantis Kung Fu Master] "I'm very happy to be here with everyone." [Ben] "So Longfei, can you give us a little introduction, what is the Shanxi style Praying Mantis?" [Longfei Yang, Praying Mantis Kung Fu Master] "The history of the Praying Mantis style can be verified by many historical records which all say that it started with a Chinese man called Wang Lang. Wang Lang saw some Praying Mantis's while he was in a competition. He had lost in a competition of martial arts and then saw a Praying Mantis fighting a cicada. Using the movements of the Praying Mantis he created the Praying Mantis style Kung Fu. Later on, the Praying Mantis was spread over the country through Shaolin Temples. In Chinese history, there was a General in Yuanguo Temple in Shanxi Province. When he went back to his hometown in Henan Province after his retirement, he found that a little Shaolin monk called Xiaolong was learning the Praying Mantis from the General's son. The little monk was very interested in this Mantis. The General was very unhappy that his son is teaching the Mantis to an outsider. In ancient China, families are usually conservative on this. Monk Xiaolong was very smart. He asked to become a disciple to learn the Praying Mantis. The abbot in the temple also helped him to convince the General to teach him. Thus, the General happily accepted him as a disciple and took him back to his Henan hometown to teach him the Mantis. Later on, this Mantis was spread in Shanxi and became the popular Shanxi Praying Mantis." [Ben] "So, what's the difference between Shanxi Praying Mantis and Shandong Praying Mantis." [Longfei Yang, Praying Mantis Kung Fu Master] "The most significant difference is that Shanxi Praying Mantis is more gentle. It's a gentle school of Praying Mantis, which is the method of using soft to overcome hard. Bending postures and straight postures are rotating, relying on inner strength and borrowing power to fight. Therefore it's called gentle Praying Mantis. Shandong Praying Mantis is strong, fast, and vigorous. So its style looks very hard and strong. Thus people called it martial Praying Mantis." [Ben] "So the Shanxi Tanglang is more of a soft style than the Shandong. Could you show us some of the basic techniques." [Longfei Yang, Praying Mantis Kung Fu Master] "One of the most important basic movements of Shanxi Praying Mantis is called Chanwan, which is moving the wrist, fingers, and joint. The practicing starts from making small circles. You can make circle from inside or outside. A simple circle can transform into Goushou and Huashou. If you spread out further, then it becomes Huashou. If you move toward inside, then it's Goushou. All the twisting and fighting are involved in one movement." [Ben] "So how those two techniques are used in combat?" [Longfei Yang, Praying Mantis Kung Fu Master] "It changes when you apply it. It's different when different people use them, and it changes in different situations. For example, when someone is punching, the fist can change into Huashou. When he's doing Goushou, it's like this. This is Gou and Hua." [Ben] "That's awesome and very powerful too. And I understand these techniques are also used for locking hands. How does that work." [Longfei Yang, Praying Mantis Kung Fu Master] "In the process of capturing someone, when catching on wrist, one's body can turn to push the power down. In this way, this person's joint will be locked." [Ben] "That's certainly very effective. Thanks very much for sharing some of the secrets of your Kung Fu with us today Longfei. Just lastly I know there are a lot of different forms of routines in the Praying Mantis Kung Fu. Perhaps you would like to show us some of those routines" [Longfei Yang, Praying Mantis Kung Fu Master] "Sure, no problem. Today let me show everyone the Dalianquan, of the Shanxi Praying Mantis"
