Northern Shaolin / Northern Praying Mantis

Kung Fu training and resources

Welcome to Tye's Kung Fu!   

    Tye's Kung Fu was located at 2603 Rountree (in Bryan, TX), but we are looking into setting up our new head school in Northern Virginia. We offer instruction in Northern Shaolin / Northern Praying Mantis Kung Fu.

    The style we teach, Northern Shaolin / Northern Praying Mantis, was developed a century ago primarily as a composite of two major styles. The Northern Shaolin side of our kungfu curriculum contains such influences as Tan Tui, Duan Da Chuan, Chin Kang Chuan (jingangquan), Black Tiger (He Hu), and more. The Northern Praying Mantis Kung Fu side of the equation comes from Mimen Tanglang (closed door praying mantis), which itself is an offshoot of Mei Hua Tanglang (plum flower praying mantis).

    In class, we emphasize a number of important practices and concepts that apply to all aspects of a student's training, including:


      yin-yang the 6 types of Applications one must be able to show
        for each movement and/or combination
      the 7 Attitudes one must display
        for proper forms work
      and 18 Tactics that one should follow
        for effective self defense.

    The Head Instructor is Sifu Dr. Tye W. Botting, who has over 33 years experience in the Chinese Martial Arts and continues to be an active student himself, concentrating on kung fu and modern arnis. The school grew out of the Texas A&M Kung Fu Club (which he founded in 1989), with public classes starting in 1996 at a local karate dojo, Montoya's Shorin Kempo, at 2603 Rountree in Bryan, TX.

    TKF is a member of Wang's Martial Arts Association, which is located in Houston, TX, at Wang's Martial Arts, where Sifu Botting or his advanced students occasionally teach advanced student classes and seminars. Periodically, we also hold weekend-long intensive training campouts focussing on actual application and also exposing students to sessions with guest instructors from respected schools.
