Hello, I posted in the beginner forum or whatever it's called as well [you know the one to introduce yourself] but, I figured I might as well post here and see if anyone else is doing or has done northern mantis style kung fu as that is what I just started learning last week, currently learning my first form. Although, I'm familiar with some of the benefits of northern mantis I thought it would be interesting to ask what more advanced people thought of it/how benificial it is as a martial art. =)

Also, this is slightly off topic... [yeah for my own thread haha] but, I was wondering if "Five Star Training" was a type of Iron Palm anyone know?
