Hello Kung Fu family and newcomers,
This is the briefest of announcements to let everyone know that our doors are currently closed. That means we are NOT offering Summer Camps, Kung Fu Classes, Mini Mantis, or our awesome After School Service at this time. We know, sad news, and we are more heartbroken than you can imagine. This decision was implemented quickly but not without much internal conversation and exhaustion of possibilities. We simply do not have the resources to continue the school at this time. If you would like to contact us directly, please send email to Billing@SantaCruzKungFu.com or leave a message on our school phone 831-251-1269.
Thank you for your support,
Luke & Melissa

What does Kung Fu mean anyway? Kung Fu, while synonymous with martial arts, does not translate as such. Kung Fu actually translates to hard work over a long period of time. One can have good Kung Fu while playing a musical instrument, painting a masterpiece, or swinging a golf club. Indeed any martial artist, regardless of style, is practicing Kung Fu. So work hard, invest your time, and you too will have good Kung Fu no matter what your art. At Mantis Martial Arts, we develop Kung Fu through promoting integrity, discipline, and self-confidence.
