These black-and-white films were shot with a super-8 camera in the early summer of 1979. They were then digitized over a period of time and now made available for your perusal. Are we concerned that one might learn these sets and take them as their own without our consent? No matter! It is indeed our sincere wish that they would perform these sets better than we do. When that happens, please don’t forget to acknowledge and pay tribute to Mr Hon Fan WONG, the master who passed on the treasures of the Praying Mantis School Martial arts to us.
網頁中演練與宗師標準尚有距離，旨在留一紀錄待後來者探研。The performances shown in this page are far from perfect, especially when compared with Master Wong’s. We simply wish to leave a record for future generations to study.
宗師於《螳螂拳典》中云：「三節棍與兩節棍及大掃子（長短二節）等，實合數種器械，融滙而成，相傳為宋太祖趙匡胤善用三節棍，故美其名為蟠龍棍也，當時以其能摺叠，而易於携帶，故頗為時尚，此械乃含有剛中之柔，又為柔中之至剛，全放之則為長械，半放之則有大掃子與兩節棍之妙，兩手分持，亦可作雙刀使用，練此械而力道不足者易自擊。 先師【即羅公】初蒞香江，先後演此技於『太平』、『 高陞 』兩舞台，頗能一新香島武林之印象，余不擅作吹牛之語，恐背乎先師之遺訓，處世誠實之宗旨也。（拙著之第十三種即為此棍【《虎尾三節棍》。螳螂國術館，1956年。】）。」
