ABOUT CHOW GAR

OVERVIEW

Pho4

Chow Gar Tong long is a southern Chinese martial art and is one of the four major schools in Southern Praying Mantis Kung Fu. It is a close range fighting style that focuses on speed and efficiency and therefore does not rely on high kicking techniques, although leg stretching is both encouraged and practiced.

These skills are developed by utilizing a range of training techniques which have been developed over several centuries, and was thought to have started in the famous Shaolin Temple. Unlike the Northern Praying Mantis style, developed over 500 years previously, Chow Gar does not simply mimic the stance and motions of the insect, but rather focuses on the short, sharp and lightning quick moves that allow the insect to stun its prey.
