Before getting committed to this school you have to ask yourself some very important questions and be honest with yourself.
1. Are you looking for authentic Martial Arts style?
2. Are you ready to put aside your habits and invest your time and efforts into something meaningful?
3. Are you ready to work hard and not to expect the rewards like Black Belt on your waist and medals on your chest?
4. Are you really looking for some new meaning in your life and do you want to implement the philosophical principals of your Martial Art practice to your daily life style?
If all of your answers are Yes, welcome to brotherhood of Southern Praying Mantis! All ages, regardless of your physical condition or gender are welcome and will find a serious, friendly, and professional atmosphere here!
I have over 35 years of experience in Martial Arts in two different countries: Russia and USA. I got through all levels in this field: Ive been a student, worked as instructor, I became the head coach of a large Martial Art Club which I also owned. However, I never saw such a beautiful, intelligent, and practical style as Southern Praying Mantis. Also, I was never involved in such serious, dedicated atmosphere of practice.
I recommend Si Fu (instructor) Mark Ahlert and his school without any doubts as the best place for practice of unique style for any levels. Do not expect quick meaningless results. The main achievement waits you on the road of practice, which will change your life.
