Sifu Matthew Hansen
Mantis Kung Fu Academy
All lessons are held in a safe and regulated training environment taught directly by Sifu Matthew Hansen or senior instructors, who constantly pride themselves on providing the best possible training.
Sifu Matthew Hansen started his journey of learning this unique art of Kung Fu in 1989.
He has since gained further knowledge of the Chow Gar style by training in Hong Kong with Sifu Hang Ng alongside his brother Sifu Adam Hansen and integrating Practical Method Tai Chi with Master Chen.
Sifu Hansen is constantly training himself while also teaching and training his disciple students. This continually develops a deeper understanding of the Southern Mantis foundations and personal growth.
Sifu Matthew Hansen has established a very family orientated academy catering for students from 5 years of age and beyond. The uniqueness of our academy is you can train at the same time in structured classes with your family and friends. The individual levels are then trained personally with an Instructor to achieve your personal goals.
Mantis Kung Fu Academy operate with an indoor recreation licence through the GOLD COAST CITY COUNCIL, with registered Blue Card holders, first aid certificates and certified martial arts instructors and personal trainers.
