A Personal Note from RDH

If you enjoyed reading the traditional martial arts magazines I previously published, then you will enjoy and find useful my hardcover books on Southern Praying Mantis. Just follow the links in the left column for complete descriptions. 

In addition to the hardcover editions of the China Southern Praying Mantis Kungfu Survey™ which detail the origins, history, and practices of Hakka Mantis in China, I've also condensed the boxing essentials into several volumes of step by step instruction to accompany the Instructional DVD programs.  Watch for new volumes in book and DVD format.  I have a library of Hakka Southern Mantis that is yet to be released.

If you have followed over the years the China Southern Praying Mantis Kungfu Survey on, then you'll find the new media on this website most interesting!   If you haven't, go to now and enjoy that too.  It'll take you a day or more of reading!

Get my Southern Mantis teaching in any of my articles, books, eBooks, magazines, videos, or DVDs now and if you are not happy with the depth of the information and knowledge presented, I will promptly return your tuition / payment. That's more than a guarantee, that's a promise!  Better yet, come visit me in China and I'll greet you at the airport!

If the "live chat" icon, in the corner of this page, shows I'm online, then click the button and feel free to chat with me.  Or just send me an email.

Your correspondence is welcome!

About the Images Herein

The images on this site and in our new media are from my personal library. Snapped on the spot. Not made in a studio for glamor but made on the spot with the various Sifu herein. I hope you will appreciate the images for what they are - Sifu in the raw, in their own element. None of the images can be made again- those days are gone. And sadly, so are many of the old teachers who have passed. Enjoy these rare and personal Hakka Mantis images, even those that are bit blurry. The photographs of various Sifu in Hakka Mantis postures alone are invaluable, priceless, and an irreplaceable heritage of Hakka Praying Mantis Kungfu. ...More info here.  -RDH
