Welcome to STL Kung Fu

Welcome to the St. Louis Branch School of the Southern Praying Mantis Kung Fu Academy. Southern Praying Mantis Kung Fu is a traditional Kung Fu system of infighting, as taught by Grandmaster Henry Yee. To learn more about the system, the St. Louis Branch, and the classes I offer, please check out the links below.

Our System

This is an infighting system with no wasted motions. No doubt about it our preference is hitting and ending the fight quickly. A praying mantis doesn’t jump around, jab or fake. We are not built to go rounds or even one round. We train to win those first few seconds.

Kung Fu Programs

We provide a variety of classes. I do not require contracts. We agree to pay within the first week of the month to get one month of training. This way, if you decide this Kung Fu is not for you, you are not tied into a yearly contract.
