About | Cornett's Secret Art of Praying Mantis Kung Fu - Nashville, TN

In the early 1970’s, Martial Arts Student Wally Cornett started search for the mysteries of this ancient Chinese martial arts way of life. During his quest, in 1997, Student Cornett was fortunate and found his answers when he met Sifu Chuck Gross, who is the Head Instructor of the “Tennessee Southern Praying Mantis Kung Fu Association” located in Gallatin, TN. Student Cornett wisely begin his studies, with Sifu Gross, learning the secret art of the Jook Lum Temple Chinese Boxing, which is a Southern Praying Mantis Kung Fu style. On, 14 December 2014, Student Wally Cornett was promoted to the rank of Sifu. By, 1 August 2015, Sifu Cornett opened his own school, Cornett’s Secret Art of Praying Mantis Kung Fu. 

Sifu Cornett teaches a style called Jook Lum Temple Chinese Boxing. This Southern Praying Mantis style focuses on fantastic hand techniques, but in addition to the techniques themselves, Sifu Cornett also consider it his solemn duty to pass down the entire philosophy of this way of life to students determined to excel in their studies. During our Praying Mantis Kung Fu class, which is located in Nashville, TN area, our students will learn both aspects of this way of life, and be urged to adopt them with equal fervor and faithfulness. This means teaching not only the physical techniques and the discipline of the body, but other aspects of Praying Mantis Kung Fu as well, which involves respect and honor for other individuals as well as oneself. 

Also, this secretive art of Jook Lum Temple Chinese Boxing incorporates internal energy Chi development with techniques of short power striking, and pressure point striking to deter any attacker bent on harming you. Intended as a system of self-defense rather than for offensive actions, the Praying Mantis Kung Fu technique is one that allows the Praying Mantis Combatant, in a confrontation, to walk away with physical and moral integrity.
