Yes, there is a style of of Mantis Kung Fu. There are three styles: Northern Praying Mantis, Southern Praying Mantis, and Wah Lum Praying Mantis. Wah Lum Kung Fu is named after the temple Wah Lum in Tampa, Florida. Mimi Chan choreographed for Disney's "Mulan" and Mulan II". You should check out her website. It's really cool. Mimi is usually undefeated. Grace Martial Arts School, which is also in Tampa, Florida teaches Wah Lum Kung Fu, as well as many different martial arts to choose from, so you can find your style.

Hope this helps!

There are many more than 3 praying mantis styles. Wah Lum is named after the Wah Lum System from China, of which the Temple in Orlando is the branch where the current grandmaster resides. Mimi Chan did do Mulan...back in the day. Check out for more info in the system. It also lists the schools around the world. The only Tampa school which teaches WahLum is run By Sifu Tom Haase, and is called Wahlum Kung Fu of Tampa. Simply look on google to get educated!!
