Hello fellow Chinese martial arts enthusiasts!
I'd like to inform anyone who lives in the Des Plaines area of Illinois of a Chow Gar Southern Praying Mantis school opening. I am a student and I'm helping the instructor obtain some interested parties to train with us.
Without being too long-winded, here's a discription of the style, teacher and school(basically our Craigslist listing):
Instructor Brian Snapp trained under Master Paul Whitrod in London, U.K.
Master Paul Whitrod is of direct lineage of the Great, late Grandmaster Yip Shui of Hong Kong.
Instructor Snapp is one of only two certified instructors carrying the CHOW GAR SOUTHERN PRAYING MANTIS lineage and offering this "EXTREMELY RARE" Traditional Gung Fu system, in North America.
Instructor Snapp has gained rich insight from Master Whitrod-Sifu Whitrod has devoted is life to the scholarly pursuit of exotic and beautiful traditional martial arts of Old World India and China. He truly is an inspiring and knowledgeable Master.
