Operating as usual

[03/23/20]   Mantis Kung Fu staff are hard at work during the temporary closure of the school to produce and share Video recorded content and Livestreamed classes.

[03/13/20]   MANTIS KUNG FU CLOSED from 3/12/2020 to 04/10/2020

In light of the decision, at 6pm today, to close all public schools in New Mexico for 3 weeks, Mantis Kung Fu will do the same.

There will be no classes until at least 4/11/2020.

We're sad that this means that the popular APS Spring Break Kid's Kung Fu Camp will be canceled (for 2020) and all registration fees will be refunded. We remain hopeful that our summer camps will not be affected.

We will post an update as we get closer to April 11th, in case we see the need to stay closed for longer.

Thank you for your understanding and for working with us to create a break in the chain of transmission of COVID-19.

Please direct any questions by email to [email protected] or by phone to 575-415-4715.

03/12/2020

In light of the recent COVID-19 cases within New Mexico, we at Mantis Kung Fu would like to be proactive in preventing our students and their families from becoming infected and/or spreading the virus. We will do our part to ensure that our school is as clean as possible during this time, but that is only half the battle.

***If you or your family members are experiencing cold/flu-like symptoms, please do not come to class. If our staff suspect you are under the weather, you will be sent home immediately***
