Mantis’ style is quick, calculating, responsive, and precise. Mantis’ small size and incredible speed make him nearly invisible to opponents, an advantage that he uses to great effect. In addition, Mantis also possesses enormous strength, far more than his tiny size would imply. His powerful, high leaping rear legs and raptorial forelegs are used as defensive weapons. Mantis is known throughout China for his devastating “acupuncture attack”, which can render a foe immobile.
