General Kwan

At the Kung fu Academy of Chicago, traditional training standards are maintained. Our commitment to the martial arts has remained firm since the establishment of the school in the mid 70s. The program of study is based on the Northern Shaolin style of the Seven Star Praying Mantis (Chi-Xing Tong Long Chuan) as taught by Master S. Kwan. Since the Rogers Park opening, our goal has been to maintain the highest quality of class education.

Tong-long chuan, or 'Praying Mantis Fist', has been hailed by most martial arts researchers as the most complete style of Kung Fu; utilizing techniques based upon devastatingly fast movements of the Praying Mantis, which has gone through 350 years of technical advancement. It involves rigorous training in the fine arts of grappling, hooking, and locking bones.

Balanced with internal training to maximize physical strength, its evasive movements and kicks are exact and sometimes tricking; giving possible aggressors no warning when into motion.

Today, the academy remains among the top ranked schools in Chicago due to its rigorous traditional training methods.

We believe that wisdom and physical development is found from discipline in the mind and body.
