Sifu Eddie Urbistondo has been training with the Chinese Kung Fu Academy of Southern Praying Mantis since 1999. He is a branch school Instructor / Disciple 5th Generation Lineage Holder under Grandmaster Henry Poo Yee. For more information on the system or Grandmaster Henry Poo Yee, please visit www.ckfa.com.

Learn this complete system known as an effective infighting Chinese Kung Fu Martial Art. It takes its theory and motions from the praying mantis. This system helps to gain health and confidence, teaches to handle yourself in self-defense situations. Students will learn exercises to build power and mobility and apply those motions with a partner, that we call "two-man training drills". Through this class and other learning opportunities, students will learn about Chinese Culture and History.

Our Kung Fu classes are currently taught Monday and Wednesday evenings from 8-9 PM.

Master Eddie says:
kung fu panther martial arts camarillo"I met Grandmaster Henry Poo Yee back in 1998. I met him at a seminar given by my Hsiang, Alfonso Salinas. I have trained in Martial Arts since 1978 and have been looking for that one "true" Master since the beginning. I have trained with many Masters of many different Martial Arts systems, but it wasn't until I met Grandmaster Henry Poo Yee that I found my "true" Master. Grandmaster Yee not only knows his system of Jook Lum Gee Tong Long Pai, but he continues to study it daily. He does not live in the past like many other Masters. Grandmaster Yee is the whole package. He is someone you want to emulate, whether it is in Martial Arts or in life. He practices what he preaches. He is not out there to fill his pockets, but to mold you into a better person/Martial Artist. I am so thankful to have met this Grandmaster. Thank you, Grandmaster Yee."

The System of Southern Praying Mantis Style

John-Berka-kung-fu-panther-martial-arts-camarillo

This style of kung fu requires that the following must be mastered:

  • Footwork and stances "Mar Bo" ( Blank )
  • Body posture "Sun Yen" ( Blank )
  • Hand forms; techniques of Sao Fat, Kuen Fat, Yin Yang/Yeul Gon (breathing and Fat Gaing)
  • Soft and Hard Chi Kung


The first form, "Som Bo Fun Nan Choi," ( Blank also known as Som Gaing Fun Nan Choi) this is the middle part of the Nung Chi Kung training which leads to the release of Jook Lum Som Gaing (Guen, Han, Don)

The second form is called "Som Bo Gin" ( Blank ). This form is the seed for the training and conditioning for the mobility of infighting theories within the system of Mar Bo, Sun Yang, Lok Gaing, But Fat. This procedure of training will lead to the more advanced infighting forms of Ng Dim Sop But Bin

The third form is called Ng Dim Sop But Bin, which is the five: pressure point hitting system is part of the system of Sop But Dim Kuen (currently only taught to Grandmaster Henry Poo Yee's "Enter the Gate" students)

The fourth form is called Shiem Kuen Tuo Lo (complete Sop But Dim hitting system, with the combining of Sop But Bin Yul Sao Fat).

Infighting training concepts and its theories are part of the advanced curriculum. First it involves learning the forms and techniques and then applying them with a training partner in two-man sets such as " Blank " (Dui Jong) and the infighting conditioning sets of "Mor Kiu" ( Blank ) for final application in free-sparring. These forms and techniques involve the system's "Shiem Kuen Tuo Lo" ( Blank ). In total there are six of these punches or forms. Offensively, there is "Shiem Kuen Sup Bat Dim" ( Blank ) (eighteen-point striking system) while defensively, there is "Sup Bat Bin" ( Blank ) (eighteen changing / borrowing hand techniques).

For the more advanced students, there is the high-level, internal breathing exercise called "Jook Lum Gee Tong Long Pai Mui Far Fut Sao Ting Sing Kung". Furthermore for Grandmaster Yee's "Enter the Gate" students, there is Say Moon Lok Hop Sao, and combined with the Ting Sing Kung will lead Grandmaster Yee's disciples to the advanced long form called "Shiem Kuen 108" ( Blank 108).
