Welcome to SCM



 The Shaolin Chi Mantis curriculums are composed of three separate Gongfu systems combined together:
  • Northern Shaolin Gongfu (from the Songshan Buddhist Temple)
  • Yang Style Taijiquan
  • Northern Praying Mantis (both Taiji Tanglang "Tai Chi Praying Mantis" & Qixie Tanglang "7 Star Praying Mantis")

This curriculum is interwoven with the other Gongfu systems that also have Advanced Programs.

All Shaolin Chi Mantis and Tai Chi Youth curriculums are 4-month semesters. The seminar curriculums and after school programs are derived from these 4-month semesters.

The SHAOLIN  GONGFU  ADVANCED curriculum of Shaolin Chi Mantis is 4-semesters.

For a look at how all 3 curriculums combine to form Shaolin Chi Mantis see the SHAOLIN CHI MANTIS 7-YEAR POSTER.
