Seven Stars Praying Mantis Kung Fu Lineage Legendary Instructors

Kung Fu is taken seriously in China and our club can trace it’s lineage back hundreds of years to men who trained during ancient China. Each number represents a generation, so if two masters have the same number, they acheived an instructor level within the same time frame. Also if the number changes this shows that the higher number trained under the lower number. Our current instructor can be found at the bottom of the family tree.

Sifu Mike Purnell has trained an impressive roster of Black Sashes since the 1980’s.
