The "other" Chow Gar - Chow Gar Praying Mantis

I am proud to have been a member since 1981 of Wong's Academy of Chinese Martial Arts, based in Perth, Western Australia.

Our Sifu is Dr Wong Kit Po, who was taught in Hong Kong - Chow Gar by Chow Biu and Tai Chi by Huang Shen Shyan.

In 2002 I wrote an article for our club magazine that indexes the different Chow Gar sites I could find that related to our lineage of Chow Gar.

Since publishing that page, people have occasionally sent me links to other Chow Gar sites so I decided to add this page to contain links to the "other" style - the Southern Praying Mantis Chow Gar.

Note that different schools and individuals may refer to either style as Chow Gar, Jow Gar, or Jowga.



Hungarian site (very pretty). English translation available at



Please let me know if you find any more interesting sites and I will continue to update this page.
