Northern Praying Mantis Kung Fu taught in a fun, respectful, and supportive environment.
Group classes are held five days a week at our studio, located at 519 Main Street in downtown Springfield. Private lessons are also available.
Our teachers offer a complete training program with application and sensitivity drills, training exercises, and classical empty hand, two-person, and weapon forms.
Sign up for a free one-on-one 30 minute intro lesson with one of our teachers. Afterwards, we can schedule you for a trial group class.
