Praying Mantis

Tony Chuy is a 70-year-old Praying Mantis martial arts master, who has been teaching martial arts in Chinatown, New York for 40 years. Having fled from Hong Kong to the United States in 1969, he has used his praying mantis martial arts to preserve his identity and as a means to the realization of self-worth in American society as a Chinese-American.
