Obviously there are more Chow Gar Mantis schools and trends in Australia. It is up to everyone to decide which direction to teach. The best solution may be if the master develops the direction he wants to represent and teach when he processes the experience. This way, it will be completely authentic and unique, while respecting the tradition of teaching that style. So does Sifu Hang Ng as well as Adam and Matthew Hansen.
