Promo Video #3 – Buddha Zhen reads Tai Chi Beginner book part 3

Buddha Zhen continues reading TAI CHI BEGINNER student manual. This is the third of three videos.

All Shaolin Chi Mantis Classes Include Bookwork

This third promotional video of Buddha Zhen reading his Tai Chi Beginner book should provide a clear understanding of what our school’s themes and attitudes are.

Students Read Tai Chi Beginner Aloud in Classes

Normally, it is the students who do the bookwork readings in class.

Each class has related bookwork created to improve the student’s education in traditional Shaolin Kung Fu. Within the books read in class are the Original Buddhist concepts of founder Siddhartha Gautama.

The books also include the Zen Buddhism or Chan Buddhist concepts of the original Shaolin Temple on Mt. Songshan. Unfortunately, the Shaolin Temple is run by the Chinese government which discourages Buddhism. “I’ve met dozens of the monks from the Shaolin Temple during this century,” says Buddha Zhen. “Several of them who teach courses and have schools have told me they don’t bother teaching any Buddhism of any sort to Americans. They only teach the boxing styles that are taught there. The ancient Shaolin Buddhist Kung Fu isn’t even taught at the temple anymore. They monks call the old Kung Fu ‘antiquated’ or ‘the antique Kung Fu…'”

Shaolin Chi Mantis Traditional Buddhist Kung Fu

Shaolin Chi Mantis Traditional Buddhist Kung Fu, Taoist Tai Chi Chuan & Confucian Strategy is the newest name of our SHAOLIN CHI MANTIS school. Since some Karate schools claim to teach Shaolin Kung Fu, we have specified our style to be “Traditional Buddhist Kung Fu,” so people will understand our uniqueness.

Some Karate schools teach Tai Chi classes so we have specified our style as TAOIST TAI CHI CHUAN to be clear about what we are teaching. Buddha Zhen has just recorded a 69-video series of reading the entire book, Tao of Taoism. These will posted in his blog at

Nobody is teaching Praying Mantis Kung Fu, but to be clear we have specified our style as Northern Praying Mantis. This can be broken down into two main styles of TAI CHI PRAYING MANTIS and 7-STAR PRAYING MANTIS.

Founder of Shaolin Chi Mantis: Buddha Zhen

Founder Zhen Shen-Lang “Spirit Wolf of Truth” is Richard Del Connor. Richard is a Philosopher Poet and written several books on strategy. These teachings will be shared with all advanced level students of Shaolin Chi Mantis. These classes are based on the book ART OF WAR by Sun Tzu but include all the other strategists and business management programs known to Buddha Zhen. Confucius inspired the book, HUMAN VALUES FOR SUCCESS IN FAMILY & BUSINESS written by Richard Del Connor in 2011. This is a four-year curriculum book to ensure the student-reader can understand and integrate the strategies and philosophies into their actual life and business environment.

See if you can graduate our Shaolin Chi Mantis BEGINNER PROGRAM. Our SCM Beginner Program is much more difficult than any Black Belt program we know of outside of Shaolin Kung Fu. (We’ve heard that from every Black Belt we’ve taught.)

Physical Fitness Program for Covid-19 Lock Down

With the current Covid-19 Virus Lock Down currently enacted in the United States, we hope this FREE 5-course Shaolin Kung Fu program will provide enough essential exercise to improve the health of people unable to workout in their gyms or classes. Physical fitness is always important. But now especially it may be important for people to do daily workouts at least 3-days per week to not only remain healthy but strengthen their immune system.
