In my 50 years of martial arts practice, there are very few people that I consider a living treasure of martial arts. Sifu Roger D. Hagood is such a person. Not only has he been teaching in mainland China for many decades, but he has held his own among a very tough crowd of fellow Chinese Masters. His explanations and demonstrations of Hakka Mantis are not only clear but amazing. I count myself very fortunate to study with him and encourage anyone seeking authentic Kung Fu to seek his instruction.

I think that this is the most accurate, honest and practical research done on Hakka mantis. As with all of your work, it is done on a scholarly level. Yet, it is prepared for those who are inspired to train the original Hakka mantis transmissions. Definitely a major step in the preservation of Mantis.
I’ve learned infinitely more from your (Southern Mantis) teaching format concerning Wing Chun, than I’ve learned from actual Wing Chun Schools. I look forward to viewing anything that you produce…
I Like it very much. Step by step in a clear organized manner just how my simple mind likes it. I plan on going through it step by step and taking notes and practicing diligently. Many thanks and much gratitude.

Thumbs up of course! It’s great that we can access, train and learn all of your teaching via the internet …
