Welcome to the Akron Kung Fu Academy website. We provide instruction in 7-Star Praying Mantis Kung Fu (Hong Kong Branch) & Yang style Tai Chi.
7-Star Praying Mantis Kung Fu is one of the most popular branches of Shaolin Kung Fu practiced in the world today. The Mantis system mixes the fast grabbing hands and powerful arms of the praying mantis with the quick and nimble footwork of the monkey. Praying Mantis Kung Fu is extremely effective for self-defense.
Yang Style Tai Chi is the world’s most widely practiced tai chi style. It promotes robust health and can be practiced by persons of all ages. Tai Chi is an effective self-defense system. It features fluid movements designed to control, disable, and/or redirect an attack.
A wide variety of Chinese herbal formulas are available from the Academy including Ho Family Dit da jow, General Li's Spring Tonic, and many others that Sifu Mike Biggie is known for.
