Kung Fu

2008 was the birth of the BUDDHA KUNG FU schools. As founder of Shaolin Chi Mantis in 1992 and founder of Tai Chi Youth in 1996, this is the 3rd Kung Fu system created by Buddha Zhen, our Chinese Coyote.

We've watched fat, pudgy people transform into Kung Fu warriors. We've seen timid seniors jump from the couch potatoe lives into more active lifestyles. Mostly, these improvements were from our Buddha Kung Fu programs.

Buddha Zhen with sonWe've watched some of these transformed alcoholics and neurotics quit Buddha Kung Fu so that they can revert to their destructive lifestyles.

So, we've proven that Buddha Kung Fu can improve and enhance lives, but without it, these improved people do not have the ability to continue their healthy lifestyle, without our Shaolin Kung Fu and Tai Chi classes.

This is another reason we intend to produce Tai Chi and Kung Fu VIDEOS. We want our programs and classes to be more available, to more people.

We are also researching online lessons for individual private lessons and group classes.

We've proven our curriculums, programs, and books improve lives. Now we have to figure out to reach a wider audience. "I'm glad to improve my community," says Buddha Zhen, "but I want to improve the entire world.

Shaolin Chi Mantis Kung Fu School Founded in 1984

SCM is the.... Kung Fu school of American Zen. Praying mantis logo of Shaolin Chi Mantis Buddhist Gongfu

Buddha Zhen's Kung Fu MastersBuddha Zhen had several Kung Fu Masters at Tai Mantis in Redondo Beach, California. The owner, Dr. Kam Yuen, taught the hippie bassist Shaolin Kung Fu, Northern Praying Mantis, and Wang Style Tai Chi.

Shifu Steve Baugh, Reverend Ru Jing Xi, taught young Zhen Daoist Kung Fu and Yang Style Tai Chi.

Buddha Zhen moved in with his Shifu, Scott Stamps, who completed Richards weapon, Mantis, and Shaolin training in their Redondo Beach home, with cat Celise during 1984.

Founded in 1984 by Zhen Shen-Lang, Shaolin Chi Mantis has had programs in Elementary Schools, Middle Schools, Colleges, and several Churches. Programs have been hosted by the YMCA, YWCA, Continuing Education Department of Utah, and Los Angeles Parks and Recreation.

Dueling DisciplesThe story of Buddha Zhen's development of his Tai Chi system and how he cured a friend's heroin addiction can be found in the Tai Chi Youth website,

Buddha Zhen was living out of his van when he studied Shaolin Kung Fu in Torrance, California.

"They had showers there," explains Coyote. "I was working as a Union Carpenter, and I needed a bath every day. So I attended a lot more classes than I normally would have, just to use the showers."

Cleanliness improves Kung Fu skills?

Kung Fu Photography by Coyote

Double Sabres of Buddha ZhenWhen we decided to photograph some of our product line at Buddha Zhen's cabin, Coyote decided to use some old Polaroid film he purchased just before leaving Utah.

The light leaks or whatever caused these streaks, plus the faded magenta color, gives these photos a rare and ancient quality. Angeles Forest behind Buddha Zhen's cabin.
