  • beng bu

    Let me quote:

    "Don't know what other people think, but Beng Bu for me is definitely the most demanding form in terms of footwork, diversity of technique, and the amount of energy required to get through it."

    "Definitely my favorite mantis form. You could get a good idea of the whole system through this form alone."

    "That is a question I asked myself about 20 Years ago. Now I play only Beng Bu – the original mantis form and what I believe is physical manifestation of the 12 Character formula. In it you have the core theory and techniques of mantis."

    "I understand the mantis system has expanded however I do not view this as a productive change."

    "Don't get me wrong, Beng Bu is really all you need if you can understand and use all the postures, transitions, techniques, and theories inherent in this mother form"

    "My teacher focused mostly on techniques, and said that if you knew Beng Bu Quan, you knew all of Mantis".

    I will be glad to here different views from all PM practitioners.

      No this is the form Beng Bu ("crushing step") from the Seven Star Praying Mantis Kung Fu. Other spelling is Bung Bo. Thank you for your interest. Here you can see the form in slow motion:

        thanks for you useful information!
        it's big different from Xing yi's beng bu!
        it's more like a form, than a basic training technique!
