Who We Are

The Shaolin Wushu Kung Fu Academy officially opened in 1989 with just a handful of students. The Academy has been officially recognized as one of the top 100 martial arts schools in America by Martial Arts Magazine. The school publishes a monthly newsletter and sponsors two of the largest double "AA" rated martial arts tournaments every year. Sigung Perez takes his students to China annually to places like the Shaolin Temple or the Beijing Wushu Institute to train and experience China's unique culture.

The Academy is also proud to house Team El Paso Wushu, El Paso's first and ONLY Kung Fu demonstration and competition team. The team was formed in 2002 from a select group of the most dedicated kung fu disciples.

About Sigung Perez

Sigung Perez began studying Kung Fu when he was 8 years old. When he first came to El Paso, many years ago, there were no kung fu schools…the city was dominated by karate dojos and tae kwon do.

He has a black belt in Shotokan Karate and was a member of the legendary El Paso Karate Team which went undefeated for four consecutive years. 

Sigung Perez is an active Member of the American Wushu Kung Fu Federation. He is also a board member of the Southwest Karate Alliance, of which he was the first President (2001-2002). He has also been certified by the National Association of Professional Martial Arts as a kickboxing instructor since 1997. 

Mr. Perez was inducted to the hall of fame in Irving, TX,
July 3, 2004. 

Sigung Perez has been recognized by the Ysleta school district for his outstanding commitment to education and support for local events and programs such as "Say NO to Drugs" and "Kicking for Toys". 

With over 22 years of teaching Kung Fu, Sigung Perez still strives to increase the level of knowledge, commitment and skill in his students for generations to come.


About Our Name

The word “Shaolin” refers to a school, not a style or technique as it is so often mistaken. Roughly translated it means “young woods”. “Wushu” simply means martial art and “Kung Fu” is loosely translated as hard work. The Academy name, therefore, means “Hard work in the martial arts school”.

Our Mission Statement

“The Academy will always be operated with quality instruction,
respect, commitment and strong values.”
