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.
