Song's Kung-fu Academy is the premier school for traditional praying mantis and Shaolin-style kung-fu in the midwest. We offer classes for both adults and children in two cities: Chicago and Champaign, IL.

The school teaches a variety of traditional self defense techniques, empty hand forms, and weapons designed to improve one's overall physical abilities and mental discipline, as well as benefit health and physical fitness.

If interested, please call or stop by. Our schedule can be found at the right.


New Floor
Posted Sep 16, 2016

Kudos to Sifu Steve Vick for installing the new floor in the Chicago School. Thanks also goes out to Sifu Ron and Shifan Juan for their tireless prep work in anticipation of the new floor going in. Be careful with your sparring and forms as the surface is a bit slippery. Train well and it will be scuffed in appropriately.
